History of Rudraksha

There is an interesting legend associated with Rudraksh. In this article, we will provide you with information on the origin & history of Rudraksha. The term Rudraksh basically refers to the tears of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva meditated for several years for the wellbeing of all creatures. But, when he opened his eyes to see around, he saw people in pain. To know the complete story of Rudraksha, read on.

Lord Shiva could not see the sufferings and miseries of people and started shedding hot drops of tears. Mother Nature transformed the tears and gave birth to the Rudraksh trees. The other names for Lord Shiva are Rudra and the Lord of tears. Rudra is a term used to refer one who relieves others from sufferings and pain. There are different forms of Rudra, namely Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Sun, Space, Moon etc.

To grow a plant, we water it on a regular basis. Like the plants need to be nurtured with water constantly, similarly to please the Rudra, there arises a need to perform Rudrajapa. By doing so, one tends to attain peace and real pleasure of life. So, let all of us get together and chant Sri Rudram with full devotion. This in turn will help us achieve our ultimate destination.
