This beautiful Rudraksha pendant in silver cap is from the sacred grounds of Gurudev Siddha Peeth Ashram.
Rudraksha beads are actually dried seeds of a large evergreen tree (Elaeocarpus Ganitrus). The word Rudraksha is a compound of two Sanskrit words; rudra is another name for Lord Shiva and aksha means ‘eye’.
