Rudraksha is a stonefruit that has been used as prayer beads by Hindus, especially Shaivas, for centuries. It is believed that these beads have spiritual and healing powers and can be used to ward off negative energies. The beads are usually made from the dried stones of the rudraksha fruit and strung together in a necklace or bracelet.
They are also believed to provide protection against evil forces and bring good luck to the wearer. Rudrakshas are widely used in Hindu religious ceremonies and rituals, as well as for personal adornment.
The word Rudraksha literally means ‘the eyes of Lord Shiva’ as ‘Rudra’ is another name of Lord Shiva and ‘Aksha’ means eyes.
Rudraksha beads are found in various sizes, shapes and colors. They are believed to have spiritual powers that can help people in their spiritual journey and provide them with mental peace and clarity. Wearing a Rudraksha mala (a garland of rudrakshas) is said to bring good health, wealth, prosperity and success in life.
