Natural Sources of Rudraksha Bead

Availability of Rudraksha Trees & Beads

Rudraksha is the seed of the fruit obtained from the evergreen tree which is naturally found in area surrounding Himalaya region in India and Nepal. Rudraksha trees are also found in Java, Sumatra, Bali, Myanmar(Burma) and Indonesia.

Rudraksha fruit is green in colour and circular in shape like berries. It can be found in different shapes and sizes with strips of lines called 'Mukh' or face. These lines or mukhi can be commonly between 1 to 21 or even more. This mukh is used to identify the purpose for which the Rudraksha bead can be used.

A Rudraksha fruit directly obtained from the tree is hard and can't be peeled off completely with hands, as its pulp sticks strongly with the fruit and if we use some sharp object to remove the pulp, Rudraksha seed can also get damaged. In order to get the seed with safety, Rudraksha fruit is kept in warm water for few days before it can be peeled off easily.

Originally Rudraksha beads weren't marketed as they are marketed today and were distributed by Sadhus, Monks to there disciples, followers.
