त्रिपुरवधार्थमहं निमीलिताक्षोऽभवम् ।
तेभ्यो जलबिन्दवो भूमौ पतितास्ते रुद्राक्षा जाताः ।
सर्वानुग्रहार्थाय तेषां नामोच्चारणमात्रेण
दशगोप्रदानफलं दर्शनस्पर्शनाभ्यां द्विगुणं
फलमत ऊर्ध्वं वक्तुं न शक्नोमि ।
tripuravadhārthamahaṃ nimīlitākṣo’bhavam ।
tebhyo jalabindavo bhūmau patitāste rudrākṣā jātāḥ ।
sarvānugrahārthāya teṣāṃ nāmoccāraṇamātreṇa
daśagopradānaphalaṃ darśanasparśanābhyāṃ dviguṇaṃ
phalamata ūrdhvaṃ vaktuṃ na śaknomi ।
I closed my eyes for the sake of destroying the Tripura Asuras. From My eyes thus closed, drops of water fell on the earth. These drops of tears turned into Rudrakshas. By the mere utterance of the name of Rudraksha, one acquires the enriching benefit of giving ten cows in charity. By seeing and touching it, one attains double that benefit. I am unable to praise it any more.

The people desirous of the worldly pleasures as well as the salvation, should wear Rudrdksa according to their Varnas. The devotees of Siva, particularly, in order to please Siva and Parvati, should wear Rudraksha.(13) Rudraksa has been prescribed for the removal of sins. Therefore one should wear this Rudraksa which fulfills all the desires. O Goddess, a person having a great devotion and faith, for the achievement of all the desired objects, getting freed from laziness, should wear Rudraksa(82). The one who always applies the holy ashes and also wears Rudrdksa rosary, he becomes dear to lord Siva. With the influence of wearing the same, one achieves worldly pleasure and salvation.(89)

An account of The SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam, the ultimate poorna Avatar personal experience of Rudraksha.
My gurus put glittering jewels along with the rudraksha and I straight away picked the rudraksha! I will tell you this one incident, only then you will understand the concept of God as deity:
My guru Kuppammal (Mata Vibhudananda Puri) was having the whole guru parampara deity – given from Arunagiri Yogishwara’s time. When Isakki Swami was about to leave the body, he was not able to do puja everyday, so he handed it over to Kuppammal and she was doing puja for it everyday. One day she asked me to clean the deity. I cleaned all the rudraksha and kept everything separate. She came and asked where everything was – the Rudraksha and other jewels on the deity.
I said, “I cleaned everything and kept it aside.”
She said, “Our ancestors gave this to us. So we don’t know whether the deity is god decorated with rudraksha or the rudraksha is god put on a stand called deity so we should never do this game of separation! as they gave it, put it together, tie it and keep it and do puja!”

Rudraksha: The Energy Beads

Empower yourself with Rudraksha, the true bio-jewellery which is one of the most sacred manifestations of Paramashiva.
_The Origin Of Rudraksha_
Omnipresent Lord Siva continued gazing towards the demon Tripural for his annihilation for the thousands of years without blinking the eyelids.
Tears started dropping from both the eyes and fell on the ground which produced the great Rudraksa trees. The drop of tears transformed into the tree out of mercy for the devotees.
_Why To Wear Rudraksha?_
One who wears Rudraksa with pearl, coral, crystal, silver, lapis lazuli (cat’s eye), gold, undoubtedly attains the nature of Rudra.
