What are Rudraksha beads and what are their benefits ?
Rudraksha beads are regarded as the timeless jewels of the gods, being the most powerful aid in the path of Self-realisation. It is believed that Rudraksha beads grow on trees that have emanated from the tears of Lord Shiva, and used for centuries in Hinduism and Buddhism for Self-empowerment and to live a fearless life.
In the long term, Rudraksha beads reverse the effects of stress, alleviate depression, eliminate anxiety and other mood disorders, improve concentration, enhance relaxation, and exhibit anti-aging properties.
The benefits of Rudraksha beads have been known in Asia for ages and are well documented in traditional and contemporary literature. Due to increasing popularity of Rudraksha malas in India, scientific studies have been undertaken in recent years to determine just how Rudraksha Healing works. One of the best known research papers was published by Dr. Suhas Roy of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in Banaras, India. This study confirmed that the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electro-magnetic properties. Similar to magnets, the beads work on the principle of Dynamic Polarity. Blood circulation and heart beat automatically induce a magnetic field around the body and particularly the heart region. Depending on the polarity and intensity of this induced magnetic field, Rudraksha beads transmit subtle electrical and inductive impulses with opposing polarity and intensity.
Our Rudraksha beads
The beads we use are grown on sustainable plantations in Indonesia. We use first quality untumbled beads. All beads are authentic, sorted and checked in order to use the best of these. The power of our beads are tested in order to choose the highest vibration beads to create our Mala jewellery. All our malas are made to the specific spiritual numbers of beads: 108/ 72 / 54.
Rudraksha beads have differents faces and varieties. The Rudraksha bead we mainly use is five mukhi which is the most common Rudraksha. It has five natural lines from head to bottom which symbolize the five forms of Lord Shiva, the symbol of auspiciousness. It gives protection from all kind of diseases and provide mental peace and happiness.
Different mukhi beads ranging from one to twenty one faces, are also occasionally available. Each mukhi has its own qualities and benefits. The Gauri Shankar is our favorite one. Two beads that have grown and joined together naturally symbolise the holy union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati represented by the Soul and the Mind. The Gauri Shankar Rudraksha is rarely found and blesses the wearer with the gifts of awakening of Inner consciousness, spiritual evolution and oneness with people and elements. It evokes pure universal love. It is known to improve relationships, bring joy and harmony. It is an extremely influential and powerful Rudraksha that is recommended for meditation.
Rudraksha beads are sacred and need to be treated with respect and care. This is a major part of what we are about.
