According to legend, the Rudraksha plant was created from Lord Shiva's teardrops. The majesty and magnificent powers of the Rudraksha are mentioned in ancient books such as the 'Shiva Purana,' 'Padma Purana,' and 'Srimad Bhagavad.' They've been adorning the bodies of sages and saints seeking enlightenment and liberation in far-flung borders for thousands of years. Wearing Rudraksha, according to the Ayurvedic medical system, can help ease stress, anxiety, depression, palpitations, and loss of attention by calming the heart and nerves. It also has anti-aging qualities as well as electromagnetic and inductive properties.
The use of Rudraksha seeds has been found to help people with high blood pressure. The number of "mukhis" – clefts and furrows – on the surface of Rudraksha beads determines their classification. Depending on the quantity of mukhis in each bead, it has a varied effect on you. These are important from an astrological standpoint, as it is believed that Rudrakshas of various mukhis are beneficial to certain planets. Although the scriptures mention 1 to 38 mukhis, Rudrakshas with 1 to 14 mukhis are most popular.
