Rudraksha is a symbol of faith

Rudraksha is a symbol of faith and is considered a sacred tree. Garlands of its fruit are also worn. It is widely believed that Rudraksha originated from the water drops in the eyes of Lord Shankar. Rudraksha is the boon of Shiva, which was revealed by Lord Shankar to overcome the physical sorrows of the world. Wearing Rudraksha gives positive energy. Rudraksha is also put on for chanting mantras. Its seeds are mainly used as ornaments and garlands in India and Nepal. Rudraksha is mainly found in the Himalayan regions. Rudraksha is also found in sufficient quantity in the forests of Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Arunachal Pradesh, Bengal, Haridwar, Garhwal and Dehradun.
