Nepal Rudraksha Vs. Java Rudraksha


Rudraksha meaning - The eye of Rudra [Shiva] is considered to be the most potent manifestation of the cosmic force. Hence Rudraksha is the object of veneration and also the source to reach the higher self. Rudraksha is often beleived to symbolize the link between the earth and the heaven. These beads are the seeds of Rudraksha fruit obtained from Rudraksha trees. The Rudraksha tree is botanically known as ELAEOCARPUS GANITRUS ROXB. It's English name is UTRASUM BEAD TREE.

Rudraksha trees are mostly found in South Eastern Asian Islands of Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Bali, Iran, Timor (Indonesia) and parts of South Asian Kingdom of Nepal. Around 70% of Rudraksha trees are found in Indonesia, 25% in Nepal & 5% in India. Considered a major stress reliever, reducing circulatory problems and of course the best beads, as the berry ( Elaeocarpus Ganitrus ) was 1st spotted in Indonesia and is now grown in Nepal & Hardwar, Sr Lanka, Malaysia.

Similarity in Inner Structure :

Rudraksha beads found in Indonesia (Called Java beads) & those from Nepal are similar in the following manners -:

These features are not found in Rudraksha trees in Haridwar or India / Srilanka, where the beads are found to have no natural hole, and also a limited variety of mukhis is produced in these trees like 1 Mukhi Half Moon, 2 Mukhi, 3 Mukhis only and very few beads of 4,5,6,7 and 8 Mukhis, and none higher than this.

Testimonials Received :

I found that I actually felt a strong impact from the Java bead which surprised me as it was smaller. The energy from Nepal bead was also very apparent but different, kind of like the same note, but of different octave who know music.Also interesting was energy in both cases felt very similar to that from my red coral. Which is of course for Mars just as the 3 Mukhi is also ! So it all fits. Also, the difference in type of effect is quite noticeable as compared to the 7 and 14. This experience has given me faith that the difference in Mukhis really does matter and that I am not losing anything if I go with the Java beads instead of the Nepal beads. I will say that the Nepal bead is more impressive visually, and I can not rule out that my energy system became attuned to the Java Rudraksha energy type from the Mala I already wear thereby biasing me to feel the Java energy more strongly than the Nepal.

Differences in Outer Structure :

Nepal beads are larger in size, thorny with several projections and having deep clear mukhis. The mukhi lines are embedded deep in the outer surface. Sizes may vary from 14mm-40mm with average size 20mm.

Java Rudraksha are much smaller in size with smoother surface and mukhi lines visible as white lines from one to the other very close to the surface and not etched deep. Sizes vary from 2mm-20mm, with average size 12mm.

Differences in Properties :

  • Scientifically there is no difference between the 2 varieties as they have same internal structure.
  • It is possible that due to lesser surface area and lesser projections, effects with Java beads could be visible after a slightly longer duration than Nepal beads. The effects cannot be measured using any instrument.
  • However, testimonials and feedbacks received from clients using Java vs. Nepal beads are almost similar. Both have reported excellent results. So, seems spiritually there is no difference.

All Jap Malas and Rudraksha bead malas ranging in size from 2mm-14mm (Normal & Chikna Variety) come from Indonesia only. These have been worn since times immemorial for health, spirituality, peace andfor mantra japa.

Differences in Prices :

The prices of Rudraksha beads are based on demand and supply. Since supply is limited due to lack of organized farming, the prices vary by demand. At present due to awareness, the prices of Nepal beads has shown increase every season. Java beads were not promoted as such, so their prices are much reasonable at present.
