The importance and qualities of rudraksha is incomparable and unmatchable. It is very dear to lord of lord's Shiva. No image of shiva is complete without rudraksha in it. As it is said that to worship lord shiva as easiestas he can burn any kind of negativity into ashes if you have a pure heart, similarly wearing, seeing and chanting rudraksha burns all sins into ashes.

These rudraksha beads have been worn by mankind frompast several years, to attain good health, wealth and religious attainment. Wherever rudraksha is worshipped, goddess Parvati resides there. Rudraksha can make whole family live together in peace and harmony.


" यथा चतुर्भिः कनकं परीक्ष्यते निर्घषणच्छेदन तापताडनैः। तथा चतुर्भिः पुरुषः परीक्ष्यते त्यागेन शीलेन गुणेन कर्मणा।। "
A person who wears all rudraksha becomes like me. So, a human being should try from all levels to wear rudraksha – Shiva in Padma Purana.

" यथा चतुर्भिः कनकं परीक्ष्यते निर्घषणच्छेदन तापताडनैः। तथा चतुर्भिः पुरुषः परीक्ष्यते त्यागेन शीलेन गुणेन कर्मणा।। "
Even Rudra attained rudrahood after wearing rudraksha beads. Saints achieve the ultimate truth and brahma attains brahmatra. This, there is nothing higher than wearing rudraksha bead in this world - Padma Purana.


Rudraksha beads are a plant product, containing carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and some other elements in combined from. The results shows that rudraksha beads consist of 50.031% carbon, 0.95% nitrogen, 17.89% hydrogen and 30.53% of oxygen.

Rudraksha is a large evergreen broad – leaved tree. Its scientific name is elaeocarpus ganitrus. Its habitat stats from sea level and goes up to 2000 meters. These are generally 50 ft to 200ft in height. In present era, rudraksha trees are basically localized in Nepal and the southern part of Asia.

Rudraksha beads have electromagnetic, paramagnetic, Diamagnetic and Dynamic polarity i.e. ability to change its polarity. According to research rudraksha also anti-ageing properties based on their electromagnetism.

These beads have certain electromagnetic and inductive properties and when worn over the heart they send out signals to brai, to activate and control some certain brain chemicals and even neuro matters, depending and differing upon different mukhis.

The wearer of 1 to 12 mukhi of rudraksha are found to be high in levels of confidence and self-esteem as these are caused by increased level of dopamine, which can be decreased down by wearing 1 to 12 mukhi rudraksha.

The activity of neurons in the right part of brain is found to be high in the wearer of 14 mukhi rudraksha bead. This can be the reason in change of personality and attitudes of wearer of different types of rudraksha beads. When the person gets a positive confidents form of mind, the impact goes deep in to his sub conscious mind, sending out powerful vibrations these by changing the way nature and others reacts to him/her.

Dynamic- polarity rudraksha has the ability to change its polarity this is because of its property named diamagnetism. Diamagnetism is termed as the ability of any material to acquire temporary magnetic property in presence of an external magnetic field. Blood circulation and heart bead automatically induces a magnetic field around the body and mainly heart region. Rudraksha bead acquires a polarity that is opposite to the inducing field. As a result of this the opening up the passages of arteries and veins are for better than that of magnets.

Rudraksha beads act as a storage of electrical energy. This property Make rudraksha capable in stabilizing and anchoring the bio-electric current. The values are measured in farad. This property is very helpful in controlling hyper activity, palpitations of heart, streamlining heartbeat etc. due tostress when there is increased physical activity heart beats faster and over all activity of hormones and nervous system increases. This caused increased energy levels or increase in potential differences. As-a-result of this, the magnitude of bio-electric current increases. Rudraksha beads out as dielectric, to store this bioelectric energy.

Rudraksha bead have permanent magnetic property. This have been observed to send out inductive vibrations with frequency measured in unit of henry (volt seconds / ampere). This perhaps is the reason why people have felt better even when rudraksha beads touch them physically.
