Have you ever thought about significance of wearing jewelry? What positive effects it can bring in general to our body or mind?
If we look back in history, then we can see various types of jewelry that have been worn by people of ancient times. And a question arises that they worn it not only for aesthetic appeal but also for imbibing something divine from these pieces.
Because as we know people of different civilisations had a better intuition than we have now and also were more informed about the nature of divinity.
So, today I would like to continue telling you about India and about healing and spiritual effects of wearing such kind of pieces. History of Indian Jewellery is as old as the history of the country itself.
It is well-know fact that Indian people attach much importance to jewelry. What’s more the jewelry design is so versatile in India that it varies from state to state. The sheer number of items forming the jewelry of an Indian woman is numerous, ranging from earrings and necklaces to pieces for adorning the hair, hip, feet, and feet.
The first spiritual piece we start our post is “Rudraksha”
A rudraksha, Sanskrit: rudrākṣa (“Rudra’s Tear Drops”) is the seed of the Eliocarpus ganitrus tree and plays an important role in a spiritual seeker’s life.These treees usually grow usually at a certain altitude in the mountains – mainly in the Himalayan region.Unfortunately, most of these trees were used to make railway sleepers, so there are very few of them remaining in India. Today, they are mostly found in Nepal, Burma, Thailand or Indonesia. They are there in some parts of the Western Ghats in South India, but the best quality ones come from a certain altitude in Himalayas because somehow the soil, atmosphere, and everything influences it. These seeds have a very unique vibration.
Rudraksha beads are a plant product, containing carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and trace elements in combined form. The percentage compositions of their gaseous elements were determined by C-H-N Analyzer and by Gaschromatography. The result shows that Rudraksha beads consist of 50.031 % carbon, 0.95% nitrogen, 17.897% hydrogen and 30.53% oxygen.
One legend says that Lord Shiva (the god of eternal cycle of creation and destruction) who is also known by the name “Rudra” According to Shiva puran, once lord Shiva went into deep meditation for a long period for the well-being of all living beings. After waking from the state of meditation, he opened his eyes and instantly tear drops fell on the earth. On reaching the ground, tear drops took the form of a seed which later grew into Rudraksha tree.
Lord Shiva is always portrayed wearing rosary of Rudraksha beads on his head, arms and hands. With this came the religious, spiritual, physical and materialistic significance of Rudraksha. This further brought it to lead the path to spiritual enlightenment and liberation. Thereafter came the use of holy Rudraksha beads by Shiva devotees.

Dr. Roy’s research boosted that as scripted in the scriptures, Rudraksha indeed possess Powerful Electromagnetic, Paramagnetic and Inductive Properties confirmed that the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electro-magnetic properties.
