Rudraksha stone, also known as Blue Berry seed, is a stone worn for good health and religious purposes. It is obtained from the Rudraksha tree which takes about 18 years to fully grow and form a blue colour seed with a hard shell that covers the Rudraksha. It is usually found in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Thailand, Tibet, Japan, South China, the Philippines, Northern Australia, and Malaysia. The importance of this stone is even mentioned in the Shivpuran.
Rudraksha means eyes of Lord Shiva in Sanskrit and hence, it has a high demand for mantra jaap and other positive effects. There are 1-14 mukhi of Rudraksha which represent different planets’ powers, hence it makes it wearable for any person with suitable planet energy. However, it is always advised to consult an astrologer before wearing a stone.
Rudraksha is a great provider of positive energy. It helps in improving self-esteem and reduces anxiety and stress. It also protects from mishappenings and negative effects of planets to a great extent. It is considered to have positive results for health like balanced blood pressure. It overcomes fear and suffering to provide a happy, peaceful and prosperous life. It is popularly used for its healing powers, meditation and concentration.
