Mythology can be both fascinating and intriguing. The Rudraksha beads have garnered attention and have piqued the interest of many. These brown, wooden beads are more than that meets the eye. Originating from the Hindu mythology, Rudraksha also has an interesting story behind it. It is believed that, as an act of benevolence, Lord Shiva meditated for years to bestow love, happiness and prosperity on all mankind. Upon opening his eyes, Lord Shiva witnessed the unrighteous conduct of the demon Tarkasur’s sons and shed tears of grief.
These tears crystallised to take the form of Rudraksha seeds which grew to be Rudraksha trees. Our ancient Hindu texts and scriptures have recorded the significance of these seeds rather well. These trees are found in selected regions of South-East Asia and South Asia. Mostly found in the hilly mountain regions of Nepal, India, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sumatra. The fruit of this tree is known as the Rudraksha bead which is brown in colour and sour in taste.
