Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. Rudraksha beads represent Lord Shiva – the “eyes of Shiva” or “tears of Shiva” in Sanskrit. These beads have been worn by gurus and yogis since ancient times for their profound spiritual significance. Sacred Rudraksha beads are seeds from the Rudraksha tree and according to ancient Vedic texts, they are endowed with cosmic powers to elevate the soul and assist on the path of ascension. According to the ancient Vedas in Indian mythology, all mighty Lord Shiva cried tears of compassion for humanity and his tears became Rudraksha seeds to assist humanity in our healing.
