There is a false esoterism surrounding Rudraksha, people say only the 'qualified' and the most austere could wear this.
Truth is totally the opposite, Rudraksha could be worn by anyone of all age categories and all backgrounds.
However, Lord Shiva's mercy alone qualifies people to wear Rudraksha and no amount of human effort could do that.
Rudraksha as per Hindu scriptures is said to be created from the Third Eye of Lord Shiva resulting from his severe penance of 1000 years.
Whoever wears Rudraksha will be considered a part of 'Shiva Kutumbam' (Shiva's family), a family's chief will do everything for the benefit of his family members and shield his family from all sorts of trouble. Lord Shiva exactly does this to those wearing Rudraksha.
People needn't fear with some saying that one is required to maintain a spiritual recluse to wear a Rudraksha. People can go about living their lives, a simple prayer of 'Om Namah Shivaya' would suffice.
