Also known as Krishna's tears, rudraksha beads are the dried stones of the fruit of the Elaeocarpus ganitrus tree. The stones are associated with the Hindu deity Shiva & are commonly worn for protection & for chanting mantras such as Om Namah Shivaya. The Rudraksha bead acts like a protective guard that safeguards its wearer from negative energies. It is believed to help relieve stress, lack of concentration, pain, anxiety & depression. Rudraksha is helpful for balancing vata & kapha doshas.
