Rudraksha Beads - For Health, Wealth & Spirituality


The Tears of Lord Shiva that are Rudraksha, are the original Vedic Beads of Power worn by the Yogis of India and the Himalayas for thousands of years to maintain health and to gain self empowerment and fearless life on their path to Enlightenment and Liberation.

The Electromagnetic Properties of the Rudraksha Beads improve concentration, focus and mental stamina. Due to these same properties it was found that wearing these Beads around the heart reduced and controlled stress levels, blood pressure and hypertension resulting in the feeling of tranquility and calmness. Rudraksa Beads were found to be ideal for focused Meditation and other Spiritual Practices.

It is remarkable to consider that natural beads of vegetable matter from the Rudraksh Tree affect the human neurophysiology as described in Vedic Literature however recent scientific research has again found Vedic knowledge to be correct

A combined study to research the Biomedical Implications of Rudraksa was conducted with the Departments of Biochemistry, Electrical Engineering, Psychiatry, General Medicine and Psychology. This study proved and documented the powers and effects of Rudraksha Beads scientifically with reproducible results

Research has proven that Rudraksh have powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties that vary from the different Mukhis or facets (the different number of divisions found on the surface of each Bead). They also found that wearing or performing Japa with a particular Mukhi or set of Mukhis of the Rudraksa Beads created specific electrical impulses that are sent to the brain through the process of galvanic skin response stimulating certain brain centers that transfer information.

In our experience we have seen the initial Rudraksa Effect triggered by the mere reading of the word Rudraksha in print or the physical sight or touch of a Rudraksha Bead. We have found this triggered memory affects men and women and children and runs throughout many populations in the world from 4 years of age in India to people in their 50s and older in the United States and Europe. When the Rudraksh is recognized by those who are wakening up to higher states of consciousness and remembering on higher levels there is an unexplained need experienced to have Rudraksha in their lives again.

The Vedic Puranas also show there are more powerful Rudraksha Beads from 1 Mukhi to 21 Mukhi each capable of aligning our mind and the positive energies around us to specific aspects of health, happiness, spiritual fulfillment, prosperity, creativity, intuitive ability, material fulfillment, family harmony, attraction, self empowerment and fearless life.
