Parvat - "Swami, from where they have come?"

Shiva - "In the past time, I indulged in a deep penance of thousand years.

One day while on penance I felt the perplexity which made me little avid. Hence, I opened my eyes.

After opening my eyes, few water drops came from my eyes. They became my teardrops and a Rudraksha tree grown there from them.

I became emotionally attached to Rudraksha, and I distributed Rudraksha to the devotees of Lord Vishnu and in all the four realms.

On Bhuuptal (means planet earth ) I produced my lovable Rudraksha in Gaud nation.

The land includes Mathura, Ayodhya, Lanka, Malyachal, Sahagiri, and my Kashi. After that, I distributed the seeds of Rudraksha to other nations."
