A Rudraksha is thought to be the direct blessings of Lord Shiva, but there are different stories about the origin of Rudraksha.

Which are the stories about the origin of Rudraksha?..


According to Shiva Purana, once lord Shiva went into deep meditation for a long period for the well-being of all living beings. After waking from the state of meditation, he opened his eyes and instantly tear drops fell on the earth. On reaching the ground, tear drops took the form of a seed which later grew into Rudraksha tree.

There is also another legend related to the origin of the Rudraksha. It is said that Lord Shiva was very upset and depressed due to the death of `Gauri` his wife. He started crying and roaming here and there in search of `Gauri`. And while searching too he was crying and his tears were falling on the earth. This is said that his tears were converted in Rudraksha.
