Rudraksha originated from the tear of Lord Shiva. According to Devi Bhagvata Purana, Maya, an asura, performed severe penance along with Taraka and Vidhyunmali to achieve immortality. Finally they got a boon that they could be killed only by Shiva's single arrow, when that single arrow burns the three cities they live.
Maya, who was destined to be the architect of Demonic race, built three flying cities, each moving with respect to each other in such a manner that they converge in a single line only during a day of Pushya Nakshatra, a conjunction which happens once in millions of years. Taraka's fort was made of iron, Vidhyunmali's was made of copper and Maya's was made of gold.
Very soon, the auras took over the entire Universe. Devas were subdued. Divas prayed to Shiva to fight for them and set them free from the reign of Asuras. Shiva acceded to their prayer and asked them to wait for an opportune moment.
At the end of the stipulated time period, Shiva fashioned his weapons and accessories for war from various cosmic elements. The moment the three aerial cities converged, Shiva mounted on his chariot and with Brahma as the charioteer, he sped upwards. He took out his bow, and hit the converged cities with a single arrow which was none other than Vishnu. The cosmic arrow destroyed the three cities.
