The word Rudraksha comes from the sanskrit words ‘Rudra’ (Shiva) and ‘aksha’ (eyes) also known as ‘the eyes of Shiva.’ It is believed the Rudraksha seed is originally from Shiva’s tears. According to mythology, Shiva meditated for 1000 years for the benefit of all beings and when he opened his eyes tear drops fell from his eyes and land upon the earth taking birth as the sacred Rudraksha tree. Uses of the Rudraksha beads have been recorded for many years and their first known recording was in ancient Hindu texts listing that they promote a peace of mind, protection, nirvana and prosperity. Each Rudraksha acts like a bio-energy center and charges the energy field, chakras, kundalini energy and the 108 sensitive nerve centers of the brain.
