RUDRAKSHA (The Tears of Shiva) is the seed of a particular tree species which usually grows at a certain altitude in the mountains Ð mainly in the Himalayan region. Rudraksha beads are regarded as the timeless jewels of the gods and find mention in ancient Puranas and Upanishads as being the most powerful aid in the path of Self-realization. It is believed that the beads grow on Rudraksha trees that have emanated from the tears of Lord Shiva and have been used by yogis and spiritualists for self-empowerment and for leading a fearless life. The merits of Rudraksha were evidenced in the late 1960s by a group of scientists lead by Dr. Suhas Rai, Institute of Technology University in Banaras, India. Dr. RaiÕs research boosted an ancient belief that, as scripted in the scriptures, the inner structure of Rudraksha beads undeniably contained subtle electromagnetic atoms that had an impact on the body. Many schools of yogic thoughts advocated for the religious, scientific and spiritual significance of Rudraksha. For someone who is constantly on the move and who eats and sleeps in various places, Rudraksha is a very good support because it creates a cocoon of your own energy. It is also a kind of shield against negative energies. It is possible for some people to use negative energies to cause harm to someone else. Rudrakasha beads have several amazing powers due to their electromagnetic character. This Electromagnetic character empowers the bead to cure the human body medically as well as spiritually.
