Hinduism - What Is A Gauri-Shankar Rudraksha?


 A specific kind of rudraksha, a bead fashioned from the dried seed of the Shiva-honoring tree Elaeocarpus ganitrus.

Shiva's worshippers often wear rudrakshas strung into garlands (bhakta).

When two seeds grow together organically, the GauriShankar rudraksha is created.

Despite the fact that the Gauri-Shankar is not as uncommon as some other beads, it is unique enough to attract a high price.

The GauriShankar is seen as a natural manifestation of the celestial pair, Parvati (Gauri) and Shiva (Shiva) (Shankar).

Shiva as wisdom and Parvati as Shakti or strength embody the whole presence of god in both its everlasting and dynamic aspects.
