Rudraksha Mala And Its Faces
Rudraksha Mala is a very common component of the Hindu faith and is used while offering prayers to God or during mantra chanting. It is generally seen in the hands and around the necks of sages. The natural mala is made from the seeds of a tree called Elaeocarpus ganitrus.
The word Rudraksha is made up of two words: Rudra (which means Shiva) and Aksha (which means eyes). It is associated with Lord Shiva. These were used for numerous purposes, like therapy, astrology, and spirituality. It is believed that Lord Shiva himself wears Rudraksha.
