Rudraksha Beads, the holy beads scientifically called as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus ROXB, comes from Sanskrit word and literally stands for the "eyes of Lord Shiva"( means rudra=shiva, aksham=tear of an eye) .
Rudraksha trees are grown in Gauda Land, a highly fertile land ranging from the great Himalayan Belt to Southeast Asia and where Lord Shiva meditates. Although grown in many countries like Nepal, India, Barma, Bhutan, Indonesia , Rudrakshas are mainly localized in Nepal.
Rudraksha - Not Just a Spiritual Symbol But Also a Medicinal Remedy
Though the powers of the Rudraksha beads have been known as a phenomenon for thousands of years in Vedic Knowledge, it is only since the late 1960s that their values and merits have been documented in modern science through research conducted by a group of scientists lead by Dr Subas Rai PHD Institute of Technology University in Banaras India.
Dr. Roy's research confirmed that the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electro-magnetic properties. Powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties that vary from the different Mukhis (clefts in the seeds to differentiate each bead) of Rudraksha beads creates specific electric impulses that are sent to the brain through the process of reflex skin response stimulating certain brain centers that transfer information in the Neurophysiology, which is the major way of impact of Rudraksha in human body.
When Rudraksha beads are placed over the heart, they act to stabilize the heart beat. Similar to magnets, the beads work on the principle of Dynamic Polarity. Blood circulation and heart beat automatically induce a magnetic field around the body and particularly the heart region. Depending on the polarity and intensity of this induced magnetic field, Rudraksha beads transmit subtle electrical and inductive impulses with opposing polarity and intensity. Accordingly, a proportionate balancing force is exerted on the heart to regulate it if it starts beating above or below normal rates. This action helps to ensure ideal blood circulation in the body.
The human body is a complex bio-electronic circuit comprised of the Central Nervous System and the organs and functions it regulates.
Streamlined blood flow has a powerful rejuvenating impact on this circuit and serves to prevent stress-related disorders caused by the damaging effects of excess energy on neurons and neurotransmitters. In essence, Rudraksha beads help bring about the well-known "relaxation response" which is the ultimate goal of meditation, yoga, tai chi, biofeedback, and countless other Alternative Medicine methodologies.
To experience the deep tranquility and concentration which are vital for meditation and control of mind and body are one of the reasons why Yogis for thousands of years in India, have worn Rudraksha Beads. Thus under the power of Rudraksha's positive influence, vast amounts of Vedic literature were studied and memorized in ancient India by disciples of spiritual knowledge.
In recent years, the general populace in India has taken to wearing Rudraksha beads to combat the effects of stress, hypertension, depression, and high blood pressure. Without the harmful side-effects and addictive nature of tranquilizers, anti-depressants, and beta blockers, men and women experience heightened energy levels, stamina, and peace of mind within a few hours of placing Rudraksha beads in direct contact of their chest region. In the long term, Rudraksha beads reverse the effects of stress, alleviate depression, eliminate anxiety and other mood disorders, impotence, improve concentration, enhance relaxation, and exhibit anti-aging properties.
Each mukhi ( number of clefts on the beads) is said to have its own special properties. For example, the one-mukhi bead is believed to bring fame and fortune. And people such as Indira Gandhi, Shammi Kapoor, Rajnikanth and Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Sonu Nigam, Kate Moss, Richard Gere, Steven Seagal, Jackie Schroff, etc are known to wear these beads. Similarly, the four and six mukhis are said to be beneficial for education, while the three-mukhi ones signify good health and are good for people suffering from blood pressure and diabetes.
Like any traditional medicine, the electro-magnetic properties of the rudrakshas goes direct to the root of the problem rather then suppressing the issues. ** only genuine and original nepal rudrakshas will give the best results **
