Rudraksha in Sanskrit means Lord Siva’s tear drops, that dribbled from his eyes out of joy, fell on Earth & became seeds which grew as Rudraksha trees. That’s why Rudraksha is considered so sacred.
Rudrasha tree usually grows at high altitude in the mountains - mainly in the Himalayan range.
Rudraskha are mostly sourced from Nepal, Burma & Indonesia. Although found in some parts of the western ghats in south India, but the best quality ones come from a certain altitude in Himalayas because somehow the soil, air, water, and everything around influences it.
Rudraksha seeds have very unique vibration that shields against nagtive energies, cleanses the aura, and brings Happiness, Success & Prosperity to the wearer. Rudrasha has natural surface marking called Mukhi or Facets ranging from 1 to 21.
