Sacred texts describe that Lord Shiva once went into a deep meditation for the well being of all living creatures. When he woke, he began to cry. As his tears fell, he guided them towards earth and transformed them into seeds for the benefit of those seeking freedom from suffering and union with the Divine. Rudraksha literally means "the tears of Lord Shiva", symbolizing limitless compassion. It can help you achieve all that you want - a healthy mind + body, an abundant life, and a happy soul. No other bead is considered to be as auspicious and powerful.
