Types of Rudraksha and their astrological value

Rudra is one of the names of Lord Shiva or Shankar. Aksha means tears. According to a legend, once the Lord was meditating in a blissful state. On opening his eyes, tears of joy that he experienced from the meditation spilt from his eyes. Upon touching earth the tears became a seed and soon transformed into a tree. So Rudraksha means tears of Joy from Lord Shiva. Shiva is known as the great yogi, thus the person who wears Rudraksha embarks on a spiritual journey and it acts as a protector against any ill fall. 


The Vedas also mention the Rudraksha and associate it with wind and storm. The wind and storm are not of destruction but regeneration. They mention that a Rudraksha attracts cosmic particles and channelizes them throughout the human body. This removes negativity and provides vitality, harmony, and good health to the body. Rudraksha is also associated with the chakras of the body. Wearing a combination of them can unblock any of the main 7 chakras to the body.


Types of Rudraksha

The beads of the Rudraksha have vertical lines running across them. These lines or the Clefts or furrows become known as the Mukh of the Rudraksha. 1 line makes the Rudraksha one Mukhi, 2 lines make it 2 Mukhi, and so on. Naturally available Rudraksha range from 1 to 21. Although only 14 are available easily. A fact about Rudraksha that is not known popularly is that each bead takes around 15-17 years to mature and gain correct shape. The bead is composed of 50.031% carbon, 30.53% oxygen, 17.897% hydrogen, and 0.95% nitrogen. No wonder it has tremendous health benefits. A good astrologer can help guide you better on which Rudraksha to wear at a particular time.
