Rudraksha Beads and their Benefits
Rudraksha are the oldest known prayer beads on the planet and regarded as the timeless jewels of the gods, being an incredible aid in the path of Self-realization.
Pronounced "Rude-rock-sha" and derived from Hindu mythology, these beads are known to symbolize the eyes of Lord Shiva. The story is told, while meditating on the state of the world he shed tears of compassion. His tears are said to have formed these seeds upon touching the earth, birthing the Elaeocarpus trees that grow sacred Rudraksha to this day.
Scientifically, these sacred beads contain carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen; and vary in size, from 3 mm to 40 mm, with the smaller beads being the rarest and most auspicious. Carrying sacks of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen against the body, soaking up the vibration of pure living organisms, helps one to feel "in nature."
Used for centuries in Hinduism and Buddhism for Self-empowerment and protection, Rudraksha are also worn to symbolize one's dedication to living in Awareness and Truth, Universal consciousness and Compassion.
Medicinally, they are known to heal both mind and body ailments. Rudraksha beads have been found to reverse the effects of stress, alleviate depression, eliminate anxiety and other mood disorders, improve concentration, enhance relaxation, and lower blood pressure, in the long term, while exhibiting anti-aging properties. They are also believed to increase clarity, calm the central nervous system, help quiet the mind, and free negative thought.
