Had been to Rishikesh last weekend and went and visited a few gem stores. They sold spatik malas, navrathan malas, etc. and also Rudraksh beads of many types. One particular Rudraksh at a State Government run shop caught my attention, the shopkeeper said this particular one is a “21 mukhi”and extremely rare. He said it is worth 30 lakhs!! I was stunned. 30 lakhs for a seed..Open to comments and views!
That depends upon the belief of the buyer.
Rishikesh is a abnormal seed…….
First, nice to see a rarity. I am surprised he let you pick it up and photograph it. Good.
Your question is bound to bring out believers and skeptics alike.
who is to say … let us not go all faint over it, but on the other hand let us not be sooooo skeptical as to miss an important piece of info…
P.S. there are sacred trees, sacred groves , sacred rivers, sacred places all over the world… in all cultures, all religions, so lets keep an open mind. Many books and PHD thesis and hence careers have been made on study of the sacred beliefs, even at such lofty places at the Harvard University.
