Rudraksha beads are a
plant product, containing carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and trace elements
in combined form. The percentage compositions of their gaseous elements were
determined by C-H-N Analyzer and by Gaschromatography. The result shows that
Rudraksha beads consist of 50.031 % carbon, 0.95% nitrogen, 17.897% hydrogen
and 30.53% oxygen.
is a large evergreen broad-leaved tree. Its scientific name being Elaeocarpus
ganitrus, the family is tiliaceae. Altitude-wise, its habitat starts from
sea-coast and goes up to 2,000 meters. Geographically it is found growing
naturally and abundantly in tropical and subtropical areas. The trees are
perennial in habitat. The trees are almost 50ft to 200ft in height.
It has ovoid, conical
and elongate flowers, nearly 1 to 2 cm in diameter. Its fruit is globose and
drupaceous having a fleshy exterior and is light green in color. Rudraksha
beads are covered by an outer shell which is blue in color and is hard and
tubercle on the inside. On each Rudraksha seed vertical lines are seen running
down its surface. These lines are called mukhi or "the clefts or furrows
on the surface" and determine the type of mukhi Rudraksha. For instance
Seeds with one vertical line are one mukhi Rudraksha, those with two lines are
two mukhi and so on. Rudraksha beads contain 50.031 % carbon, 0.95% nitrogen,
17.897% hydrogen and 30.53% oxygen. It takes 15 to 16 years for Rudraksha to
mature and bear fruits. It is kept in water for a number of days and then
Rudraksha is taken out after peeling off the pulp.
to old mythology " Siva Purana" that the favourites of Lord Siva ,
Rudraksha trees grow in Gouda Land which in present era is the area of the
Gangetic Plain on the southern border area of Asia to the foothills of great
Himalaya and middle area of Nepal.
scriptures talk about different circumstances leading to the creation of
"Rudra". All the epics are centered on Lord Shiva, the god of eternal
cycle of creation and destruction. Lord Shiva is also known by the name
"Rudra". According to Shiva puran, 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.
Later the merits of
Rudraksha were evidenced in the late 1960s by a group of scientists lead by Dr.
Subas Rai PHD Institute of Technology University in Banaras India. Dr. Roy's
research boosted that as scripted in the scriptures, Rudraksha indeed possess
Powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties confirmed that
the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electro-magnetic
properties. Many schools of yogic thoughts advocates for the religious,
scientific and spiritual significance of Rudraksha.
in the recent year
scientific studies have been taken in India to determine the degree and
mechanism of the healing powers of Rudraksha. In prestigious Indian Institute
of Technology, Banaras, India, Dr. Subhas Rai published one of the best known
research papers about Rudraksh.
The research of Dr.
Subhas Rai on Rudraksha confirmed that this beads have dominant
electromagnetic, paramagnetic and inductive properties. These properties
describe the healing powers of Rudraksha bead. While wearing the Rudraksh Beads,
Blood circulation and heart beats automatically induce a magnetic field through
body and mainly the heart region. When heart starts beating above or below
normal rates then a balancing force is exerted on the heart to control it. This
phenomenon helps to make sure for ideal blood circulation in the body.
Due to having the
polarity and intensity of induced magnetic field, the Rudraksha beads transmit
slight electrical and inductive impulses with conflicting polarity and
intensity. Hence when it is put over the heart it controls the heart beats. So
it is clear that the beneficial effects of Rudraksha bead have been proved
