The word Rudraksha comes from the two Sanskrit words Rudra ( a synonym for Lord Shiva ) and Aksha ( Eyes ). Botanically, the Rudraksha Tree is known as Elaecarpus ganitrus Roxb. The Seed of this plant has a rough surface and a hole running through it from top to bottom. Each seed also possesses from 1 to 21 vertical lines running down its surface, like the longitude lines on a globe. These lines are known as mukhas, or facets, and are natural formations of the seed. Seeds with one vertical line are known as Ek mukhi (one facet); those with two lines are Two Mukhi (two facets), and so on. Each bead has a different effect on you, depending on the number of mukhis (faces) it has. We have made various Rudraksha Bracelets for different purposes like Health, Wealth, Prosperity, Marriage, Children, Business etc.
