Rudraksha - the famous beads derive their name from Lord Rudra. As Lord Shiv's favorite, they carry immense positive energy. Rudraksha term finds its origin in Sanskrit and is derived from Rudra (Lord Rudra/Shiva) and Aksha (Tears), thus meaning Teardrops of Lord Rudra. The highly treasured beads are a treasure trove for health benefits.

Rudraksh is classified depending on the number of lines or clefts or furrows found on the bead. The rudrakshas are also named based on the same. With 1 line, rudraksha is called Ek Mukhi, while the more popular one with 5 lines is Pancha Mukhi.

The beads have lines varying between 1 to 21 and, in the rarest cases, 27. As the number of lines in the beads goes up, so does their rarity. But the Ek Mukhi rudraksha also falls among the rarest. The most commonly found beads have four, five, or six lines.
