Rudraksha Tree Spiritual symbolic of Good Luck and Protection

Fruits, Rudraksha Beads fallen from Rudraksha Tree

Rudraksha Beads have two three or more pods connected forming a single bead. 
 The search for more information on Rudraksha , of course Google! led me into new findings with my curiosity. The Rudraksha beads are considered auspicious and holy in Hinduism and Buddhism and have been used since ages by sages sadhus and sanyasis and now as protectors and reciting mantras meditation. Elaeocarpus ganitrus used to prepare malas and bracelets.  The rudraksha tree grows blue colored berries fruits that have the seeds.
Easily growing the auspicious tree bears fruits after three to four years. Rudraksha have very spiritual significance and used as strong protection from evil eye and negative energies. The facets or divisions are called 'Mukhis', the faces of 'Lord Shiva' and the eyes that protect.
The bead has a tiny opening in center where it is beaded with thread to make malas/ necklaces or bracelets for meditation and repetitive prayers, 'japa'. The beads when exposed to strong chemicals or harsh soaps might crack and break hence it is better to avoid such things coming in contact with Rudrksha malas. Flowing water from these beads, bathing helps dissolve negative energy.
Another important Rudraksha fact is that the beads of holy significance have been promoted as one of the most costliest used beads.The eyes or faces or number of pods in each seed is proportionate to the price of these beads.
The blue berries also resemble Shiva and it is believed in Hinduism and Buddhism that those wearing Rudraksha beads have his eyes,  his protective eyes on them. It is also believed that this produces stability and peace of mind and allows one to focus and be in the present, good from emotional problems and anxieties.
One more wonderful information I found was that Rudrakhsa beads also help one to find out whether the water is pure and the food is pure. Wikepedia mentions that moving the beads over water or food, if they move clockwise the food and water is good if not it is contaminated, what a way to check out!so negative energy around a person or object it will move anti clockwise.
The beads sure are costly and need to be threaded in cotton thread or silk, sometimes the malas are made in metal, silver or gold but chances of beads cracking of beaded too tight are more. Also better to remove Rudraksha malas when bathing and exposing to extreme chemical conditions and environment, after all they are dried seed pods and under pressure, abrasion or central pressure they crack.
