The Rudraksha bead has a top portion from where the line originated this is called Brahma. The middle portion having the largest diameter that is known as Vishnu and the bottom portion where the lines end is known as Shiva.

The percentage compositions of their gaseous elements were determined by C-H-N Analyzer and by Gas chromatography.

It is found in tropical and subtropical areas & grows naturally & abundantly, Altitude-wise, its habitat starts from sea-coast and goes up to 2,000 meters. The height of these trees are almost 50ft to 200ft. As per the ancient text, Shiva Purana, Rudraksha trees grows in the area of the Gangetic Plain on the southern border area of Asia to the foothills of great Himalaya and middle area of Nepal.

Thus, starting from Manila, passing through Myanmar, plains as well as low hills, its habitat extends to Bengal, Assam and adjoining north-eastern states, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal .In present era Rudraksha trees are basically localized in Nepal and the southern part of Asia. Although Rudraksha are grown and found in Nepal but these are mainly localized to eastern part of Nepal due to climatic suitability.

The main trunk of Rudraksha tree is cylindrical and section is circular as other common trees. It naturally grows in a shape of pyramid over the crown region. It has nearly 36 sister species, including Rudraksha. Farming of Rudraksha is a difficult process due to its slow sprouting. It takes 1 to 2 years to grow the fruits, depending on the humidity of soil. The greyish white bark & rough texture has very tiny vertical lenticels and horizontal furrows. The leaves are seen green but are dull coriaceous below. The diameter of the flowers is approx. 1 to 2 cm.

In this period they start noticing lessening of stress and pain. In time they develop mental clarity and focus and thereafter results like good relationships, good communication skills and attraction of positive outcomes start manifesting. However this time duration may be more for some people who are less sensitive or have deeper routed issues that take time to clear.

Nepal and Java Rudraksha

Mostly found in South Eastern Asian Islands of Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Bali, Iran, Timor (Indonesia) and parts of South Asian Kingdom of Nepal, Rudraksha beads are considered as the most potent healing beads and belong to the Tree family Elaeocarpus Ganitrus. Around 70% of the Rudraksha trees are found in Indonesia, 25% in Nepal and 5% in India. They were first spotted in Indonesia and now grow in Nepal, Haridwar, Srilanka and Malaysia.

Nepal beads are larger in size and thorny with several projections and have deep clear mukhis. Size of Nepal beads vary from 14mm- 40mm with average size 24 mm whereas Java beads are much smaller in size with smoother surface and mukhi lines are visible as white lines from one hole to the other very close to the surface and not etched very deep. Sizes of Java beads vary from 4 mm-25 mm, with average size 12 mm.

Both varieties of Nepal and Java beads range from 1 to 21 mukhi inclusive of Ganesh, Gauri Shankar, Savar and Trijuti Rudraksha. In both varieties, the number of seeds inside is equal to the no. of mukhi lines on them. So 2 mukhi Rudraksha has 2 seeds, 8 mukhi will have 8 seeds, 14 mukhi will have 14 seeds and so on.

Natural Hole: Both have natural hole which is a hollow cavity in the center of the bead that can be easily cleared manually without drilling.

Effect wise, both varieties work on balancing chakras and healing mind, mind and spirit in all aspects. While some people love the Nepal beads for their beauty, some find the Java beads convenient to wear on a daily basis. Nepal beads start resonating with the body in a period of 4-5 days, while Java beads take about 8-10 days to align with body due to smaller surface area. But as they worn regularly on body, they both show similar healing properties on a longer duration of time.

At Chakra Yog, we follow strict selection procedure wherein each bead is tested for genuineness, completeness of mukhis, health, high quality, energy levels and uniformity. Beads go through energizing rituals using Vedic mantras. Light sandal paste and sandal oil is applied to them in this process. The energized beads combination is then ready to be shipped to the client.

On the other side, Rudraksha trees in Haridwar or South India/ Srilanka are not similar to those of Indonesia & Nepal. Beads there are found to have no natural hole, and also have very limited variety of mukhis which range from 1 mukhi to 8 mukhi as visible in outer structure. Internally they show only one seed and thus are not attributed to be True Rudraksha beads.

Differences in properties

The effects of Nepal beads can be seen much faster as they have clear surface area. However testimonials and feedbacks received from clients using Nepal as well as Java beads are quiet similar. Both have reported excellent results. So, all depends on the faith of the wearer. All japa malas and the rudraksha bead malas ranging in size from 2mm-14mm (normal and chikna variety) come from Indonesia only. These have been worn since times immemorial for health, spirituality, peace and for mantra japa.
