Rudraksha has a very significant story behind its origin. Basically, Rudraksha means tears of lord Shiva. Rudra means Shiva and Aaksha means tears. It is said in the Shiv Puraan that when lord Shiva was asked about the pain, sorrow and grief on the earth from Lord Bramha, he went to meditate for a prolonged period to give the answer. While meditating, his tear drops fell on many places in Nepal, Burma and India- Himalayas and Rameshwaram. These tear drops led to the origin of Rudraksha trees. The main species of these rudraksha trees is called Elaeocarpus Ganitrus. Now, there are many types of rudrakshas, and among them ek mukhi Rudraksha Price is the highest as it is rare to find.
And, as it is rare to find, people must know if the product or bead they are purchasing is genuine and real or not. There are various ways to test the purity of ek mukhi rudraksha.
