The Origin

As per Hinduscriptures like Shiva Purana, SkandPurana etc. Lord Shiva is believed to be the creator of Rudraksha. The word ‘ Rudraksha’consists of two words ‘ Rudra and ‘Aksha’ . Rudra means lord Rudra or Shiva and the word Aksha means eyes or Ashru (tears). There is a story in Skanda Mahapurana which says that Rudraksha was created from the tears falling from the eyes of lord Shiva himself.

Identifying the purity

It is very difficult to identify the originality of Rudraksha. These days everything is commercialized and Rudraksha is not an exception people cut the lines of Rudrakshas and join these two Rudrakshas in order to look it like one. This is called one faced Rudraksha and the one faced rudraksha is very expensive. One faced Rudraksha, Gauri Shankar and Tridevrudraksha are prepared& sold in market to make money.

Some experts suggest that Rudraksha should be dropped in water, if the rudraksha is genuine it will sink in the water but this method is not foolproof as lead is filled in artificial Rudraksha to make it heavy. So the best alternative is to purchase Rudraksha from reputed sources.
