THE SIGNIFICANCE OF RUDRAKSHA, AMLA AND
Once, while describing about the importance of Rudraksha to the sages, Vyasa said--- One whowears a Rudraksha rosary is supreme among all human beings. The mere sight of such a holy
man absolves people of their sin. A Rudraksha bead bears features of a Linga and yoni on its
surface. One should not wear a rudraksha on which above mentioned features are absent.
Similarly two joint beads should never be worn. All the mantras become doubly powerful when
chanted with the help of rudraksha-rosary.During Satya Yuga, there lived a mighty demon
named Tripurasur. He had conquered the deities and was capable of moving in the space. The
deities sought help of Lord Shiva, who killed Tripurasur by the sight of his third-eye. In theprocess, few drops of sweat, emanating from Shiva's body fell down on the earth. These sweat
drops got transformed into a large Rudraksha-tree.
