Spiritually Mystic Bead – Rudraksha
Rudraksha, the sacred bead, strongly comprehends an individual’s life spiritually and therapeutically. The word is a combination of two words, Rudra (Lord Shiva) and Aksha (Tears) that signifies Lord Shiva’s tears. Master Deepak Ji highly recommends to wear these traditional healing beads to treat several ailments and also to purify the wearer mentally, physically and spiritually.
The ancient Hindu mythology reveals that Rudraksha tree was created as a result of teardrops shed by Lord Shiva. He was distressed by the vicious conduct of demon Tarakasur’s sons, thus, went into deepest meditation with his eyes filled with tears. A few of his teardrops fell on Earth and resulted in the production of Rudraksha tree.
These trees are commonly found in the areas between Foothills of Himalayas and Ganges plains. The magic bead, Rudraksha, is obtained by removing the upper coating of the blue colored fruit that is borne by the tree.
Types of Rudraksha
Rudraksha is available in different sizes and forms. Master Deepak Ji suggests that the power and efficacy of the bead is independent of the size but it is necessary for the bead to be ripe, pure and healthy.
The characteristics of a Rudraksha are decided by its form or commonly known as Mukhi. Each bead possesses a different number of facets or mukhis. On the basis of mukhis, Rudraksha is classified into 27 different types.
Master Deepak Ji explains that the top portion of Rudraksha is devoted to and known as Brahma, the middle portion is controlled by and known as Vishnu and the bottom portion is known as Shiva. Hence, wearing a Rudraksha signifies that the wearer obtains blessings from the 3 main GODs: Generator (Brahma), Operator (Vishnu) & Destructor (Shiva).
