According to ancient Indian mythology, the Dumagong Tripurasura gullum has been puffing, and Lord Shiva has wanted to give this dumpling a special weapon called Manohara Aghora. Lord Shiva produced this weapon with the help of all gums and mastered the task of clearing out the dumaglion. In the course of this victory, floods came out of the sight of Shiva - and from these tears arose the Rudrakshas (tears of Shiva).
Rudra = Lord Shiva
Aksha = Eyes
Rudrakshas are common in Nepal, India and Malaysia.
