Rudraksha signifies Lord Shiva as Rudra stands for Lord Shiva and Aksha for Shiva’s tears. It is believed that Lord Shiva did penance for a thousand years and after getting tired of keeping his eyes closed for such a long time, he opened them and that is when a few teardrops fell to the ground and it is from these tears, Rudraksha beads were formed.
