Definition and meaning of the word Rudraksha
The word rudraksha is derived from two words - rudra (रुद्र) and aksha (अक्ष). The source of reaching the higher level of spiritual enlightenment hidden in one own self through the divine guidance of cosmic manifestation.
- Aksha means eye. Rudra and aksha means the one who is capable of looking at and doing everything (for example, the third eye). Aksha also means axis. Since the eye can rotate on one axis, it too is known as aksha.
- Rudra means the one who weeps. A (अ) means to receive and ksha (क्ष) means to give. Hence, aksha (अक्ष) denotes the ability to receive or give. Rudraksha is the one that has the ability to wipe our tears and provide happiness.
From ancient times, the power of Holy Rudraksha beads have been scripted in various religious texts by great sages and the powers of rudrakshas are very much evident in ShivmahaPurana, Shreemaddevibhagwat, Padma Purana, ling Purana, Shivaswarodaya and Sarvollastantra.
As per details found in the Purana there are 21 kinds of Rudraksha, which are called Mukhi or faceted Rudraksha. Mukhi or faces of Rudraksha are deep lines found on the surface of the Rudraksha from bottom to the top hole. The number of these lines decides about the type or Mukhi Rudraksha.
Each of these rudrakshas have different Gods and Goddess as ruling deities and planets also. The power of rudrakshas blesses the wearer with health properties, meditation and even reduces the malefic effects of bad planets.
After you have a Rudraksha that is empowered with Pooja and blessings from temple, you must maintain its power and get the maximum benefit from it. You need to establish the connection with the bead and have faith and trust in them to consider them as holy and spiritual things not just any beads.

The rudra (rudhir, rudraksha) tree
- Creation of the rudraksha tree from the tears of grief shed by Shankar (or Shiva) upon seeing the unrighteous conduct of demon Tarakasur’s sons, and their destruction by Shiva :
"Through their righteous conduct and devotion unto Shiva, Tarakasur’s sons Tadinmali, Tarakaksh and Kamalaksh, attained divinity. After some time, seeing that they have returned to their original unrighteous conduct, Shankar was grief-stricken, and His eyes were filled with tears. A few of these tears fell onto the earth; a tree sprang up from these, which came to be known as the rudraksha tree. Later, Shiva destroyed the sons of Tarakasur." -Gurudev Dr. Kateswamiji
- General information on the rudraksha tree: found up to 3000m above, or at, sea level. The rudraksha tree grows in a narrow opening, not on open ground. Its leaves resemble those of tamarindor nux vomica, but are longer. It yields one to two thousand fruits annually. The Yatis (Ascetics) in the Himalayas survive only on these fruits. These fruits are also known as amrutphal (Fruits of Nectar). They satisfy thirst.
