RUDRAKSHA


Rudraksha beads denote the “eyes” of lord Shiva. Hence they are considered to be very auspicious and pious. These beads are obtained from a plant Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb. The Rudrakasha trees are very tall and bear small white colored sweet smelling flowers on blooming in the rainy season. These flowers turn into black berry like fruits, which yield brownish red colored Rudrakasha seeds on maturing. These seeds have sutures running throughout their diameter determining their type.

              Rudraksha beads are composed of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and some trace elements in combined form. The percentage composition of these gaseous elements was determined by C-H-N Analyzer and by Gas chromatography. These beads consist of 50.031 % carbon, 0.95% nitrogen, 17.897% hydrogen and 30.53% oxygen.People of all castes creed and religions can wear Rudrakasha. There is no sex or age bar for people desiring to wear these.

TYPES OF RUDRAKSHA 



Identify Rudraksha
Unfortunately, no. There are no definitive tests to test the authenticity of a Rudraksha except the discerning eye of an expert. When looking at the bead carefully, you'll find various deep dug lines separating the various faces of the Rudraksha bead. Ironically, humans have known to use their 'extreme skill' and try to 'carve' lines into the Rudraksha or 'wipe' them off, in order to change the faces or 'Mukhis' of the bead... i.e. 'alter' it according to their demands. It is extremely difficult to tell a genuine and a spurious Rudraksha apart, but the discerning eye of an expert can spot these 'manual interventions' and declare whether or not the Rudraksha has been tampered with.

But even within different Rudrakshas, there are some which are far more powerful than others. The criterion of selecting the right bead is not a simple one. It is a definite " Kriya " which the saints used to do to find out powerful Rudraksha and then they use it for Energizing. Experts must examine each bead and find the right ones. Then each bead must be purified thru' ancient rituals and definite kriya  which lasts for around 41 days. After purification, one can wear it on a very auspicious day.
