Rudraksha are the dried seeds of a large, broad-leaved evergreen tree called Elaeocarpus ganitrus. A symbol of the dancing god Rudra or Shiva of Hinduism, the Rudraksha literally means the teardrops of Rudra. Rudraksha makes for an important icon of one of the most popular religious sects of Hinduism, the cult of Shiva. Worn as a religious adornment, often followers and sanyasis are found taking the name of Shiva while they chant the mantras like Om Namah Shivaaye.
The Rudraksha forms a part of Indian traditions, predating to the Vedic era. The seeds are primarily used in India, Nepal and Indonesia where they are worn as beads for organic jewellery like necklaces, and considered semi-precious stones as well. They are also classified into different types, depending on the number of lines they have, from one to twenty-one, called mukhi and have special socio-religious significance attached to them.
