Rudraksha are sacred multifaceted seeds that get their origin from the eyes of lord Shiva as per ancient texts. He also adorned himself with the same. Lord Shiva had trapped Goddess Ganga in his matted locks to prevent her rapid descent from heaven to earth. As she flowed from his locks the sacred Ganges got more purified and flowed over his Rudraksha thereby making them the purest of the seeds. These seeds that adorned Gangadhara( lord Shiva) exist in nature from 1 to 21 mukhis and each Rudraksha was assigned a deity from the Hindu pantheon. As lord Shiva was also addressed as “Grihadhipataye” ; his auspicious Rudraksha could control malefics of planets.
