Find serenity and peace with the sacred Rudraksha Mala. Rudraksha seeds help to calm, balance and harmonise your energy as well as bringing powerful spiritual protection.
Rudraksa malas are often used for japa mala meditation due to the powerful healing and protective qualities of the seed. Rudraksha is the seed of the Elaeocarpus ganitrus tree. According to toancient Vedic scriptures, the seeds were formed from the tears of Lord Shiva. In Sanskrit Aksha (tears) and Rudra (one of the names of Lord Shiva ). In Rigveda, Rudra is described as the mightiest of the mighty. It represents the path to liberation. The seeds are known to guard against all negative vibrations and bring a sense of peace to the wearer. They will absorb and store the positive energy from prayer, mantras, and chants, so over time, your mala will be an even more powerful protective tool. As Lord Shiva is considered to be the creator of Rudraksha it is a symbol of fearlessness and spirituality. For all of these reasons, the rudraksha mala is favoured by monks, sages, yogis, and mystics across the world. It is believed that when Lord Shiva went into very deep meditation on the wellbeing of all creatures, he emerged crying tears of compassion. When these tears fell upon the earth they took the form of seeds that grew into the Rudraksha tree.
