Rudraksha seeds from India are one of the most popular beads in the world for meditation. ‘Rudraksha’ translates to ‘Shiva Eye’ and these seeds are revered as the tears from the Hindu deity Shiva, the transformational force of the universe. Legend has it that once Shiva, weary from the huge responsibility and tasks of being Shiva, sat down to rest under a tree, and shed a tear. That became the Rudraksha.
Rudraksha are said to relieve stress and inspire confidence. They are grounding, and carry the transformational energy of Shiva.
