Rudraksha mala prayer beads near Kathmandu Nepal.

Do you ever find people wearing a rudraksha on their necks or around their wrists? While some wear it just as an accessory as it looks cool nowadays, we should also know the reality that those beads are full of spiritual energy and have their own added value. 

The value of the bead is determined by the various colours, shapes, sizes and the number of cuts, called “mukhis”. In therapeutic purposes, this helps to determine its significance.
