Putter: Bhat Introduces Rare Rudraksha Tree in Coast

Puttur: Bhat Introduces Rare Rudraksha Tree in Coast 

Daijiworld Media Network- Puttur (SR/VA)

Puttur, Sep 24:  Professor Shyam Bhat of Yenepoya Dental College, Mangalore has introduced the rare Rudraksha trees in the coastal region by growing it himself at his residence in Kabaka village, here.

Right from the vedic period the Rudraksha trees which have special  medicinal properties is found mostly in the South- East Asian Islands of Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Bali, Iran, Java, Timor (Indonesia) and parts of South Asian Kingdom of Nepal, Haridwar and Koodala Sangama in Karnataka.

When Bhat was a professor at Manipal College of Dental Studies he had asked few Nepali students to get these plants from their place. He later thought of experimenting with it by growing it himself in his native place.  Bhat planted almost seven to eight Rudraksha plants in 1997 which have grown into huge trees now.

The tree grows 50 to 100 feet tall and the leaves which remain green throughout the year resemble the leaves of a Mango tree.

Shankar Bhat, son of professor Shyam Bhat is currently taking care of the Rudraksha trees.  Speaking to Daijiworld he said that the tree can be grown from Rudraksha seed as well but its a lengthy process as the seed takes two years to grow into a plant. He also said that the trees which his father had grown have benefited them to a great extent in the past four years.

There are several varieties of Rudrakshis such as Eka mukhi, Dwimukhi, trimukhi, chathurmuki, panchamukhi and so on. Ecah one has its own value and it can fetch over lac or crores of rupees as it is very uncommon and had international demand.

Shankar Bhat also informed that very soon he will create a website - which will give special information on the rudrakshis grown in the trees cultivated by his father.

Fantastic.. I have seen these rare rudrakshas... Mr. Bhat has got some rare one like, 11,13,14 etc. In the 14 Mukhi photo, we can see "OM" in sanskrit and Lord Ganesh face in it!!!.. This according to Shankar Bhat, is one of the most precious rudrakshas and is also called as "DEVAMANI".. Might cost some lakhs! Congratulation to the Bhat family for bringing such a divine Tree to our place..

Also he and his late wife have given this world a unique Veena Artist who is blind, Manipal Arunakumari..

I along with all our family members wish him and his brilliant daughter all the best in life.He is perhaps 78 years now. He has got q very good collection of Shaligramas also. The museum at Yenepoya Dental College done under his gudiance is one of the unique in the whole world!..

Some of Rudraksha plant brought from Nepal & sown under his direction are found in Alake near Vittal, Hosanagar in Shimoga Dist., besides his house in Puttur. He as good knowledge of this plant & the plants grown under his directions have yielded Rudrakshas. Great care was taken in getting these plants earlier. Besides he has a variety of collection of these Rudrakshas. Indeed a good news to coastal people.
