Let us begin with a very fundamental question-
What is a rudraksha?
There is a variety of trees which is known as the Eliocarpus ganitrus, which grows high up in the Himalayas. This kind of tree has seeds which are used as rudraksha beads, since they have some powerful properties of their own, mainly to do with the energy system of the universe. Each bead has a different number of faces. A bead can have a single face or even up to fourteen faces. It depends on how many faces the rudraksha bead has, that its properties will be determined. These trees are found not found much anymore in India, due to the rapid rate of deforestation, but are still available in Nepal, Indonesia, Bhutan and Thailand.
It is an ancient practise to wear garlands made out of these beads because of their powerful properties. Stories and legends suggest that these were worn by ascetics and were used by them when meditating or chanting mantras. Needless to say, the seven faced rudraksha has seven corners and because of its number of faces, it is meant for certain functions. You can buy these beads online or from a trusted and authentic source. A 7 mukhi rudraksha price varies from somewhere between rupees 1000 to 1100.
