Rudraksha is a Sanskrit word that means ‘Tears of Lord Shiva’ (‘Rudra’- Lord Shiva and ‘Aksha’- Tears). According to legend, Lord Shiva once went into mindfulness and intense meditation with the intention of giving peace and joy to all life forms. He was completely absorbed in his blissful state. As he completed his meditation and awoke a thousand years later, he started to cry tears of worldly-wise love. His tears dropped to the ground and sprouted into seeds, resulting in the development of the first Rudraksha tree.

Saints and sages always use Rudraksha beads as a gift from Lord Shiva himself to shield them from earthly hardships and misfortunes and for bringing in the ultimate goals in life by calming the mind, feelings, and providing the right atmosphere for contemplation and peaceful deeds.
