Rudra Abhishekam

e ancient Yajur Veda, Sri Rudram is renowned for its healing vibrations. it’s chanted to invoke Lord Shiva’s energy, intelligence and blessings. In Sri Rudram, the Cosmic sort of Shiva is described. Shiva drank the poison that emanated from the churning of the ocean of milk and wore the Ganga and therefore the moon his head to chill his head. Shiva has the fiery pineal eye. Constant Rudra Abhishekam cools this eye too.
The greatest and therefore the highest Abhishekam is to pour the waters of pure love on the Aatma Ling of the lotus of the guts. The external Abhishekam with various objects will help the expansion of devotion and adoration for Shiva and eventually cause internal Abhishekam with pure abundant flow of affection.
Abhishekam may be a a part of Shiva Pooja. Without Abhishekam, worship of Shiva is incomplete. During Shiva Abhishekam Purusha Suktam, Namakam, Chamakam, Maha Mrutyunjaya mantra etc., are chanted during a particular rhythm and order.
Rudra is that the Deity of anti-ageing. it’s the shape of Shiva’s rejuvenating energy which makes us younger day after day. Sri Rudram is additionally called the Namakam. In it there are 300 repetitions of the word ‘Namaha’. ‘Namaha’ in Sanskrit means ‘salutations’. it’s another interpretation, which is ‘Not Me’. Again, and again repeating the word ‘Not Me’ – Namaha – directly hits at the basis of the ego, which is that the sole culprit liable for all our problems. Our brain is meant to reply differently to different words. Whatever word we repeat in our inner space gets recorded in our brain and bio-memory and decides the circuit of brain signals. Repeating the word Namaha in your inner space breaks the unconscious a part of our mind where the basis explanation for all the health problems resides. Simply chanting the Sri Rudram with awareness can directly destroy the basis of all mental and physical health problems.
During the Rudrabhishekam, Chamakam is additionally chanted after Namakam. Chamakam may be a Vedic hymn chanted for health and prosperity. Chamakam may be a very auspicious chant and typically chanted on auspicious occasions like marriage, housewarming ceremony, etc.
When you do Abhishekam with bhava and devotion, your mind is concentrated. Your heart is crammed with the image of the Lord Shiva and divine thoughts. When there’s forgetfulness, you start to enjoy and taste the eternal bliss of Shiva. Recitation of Rudram or ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ Mantra purifies the mind and fills it with Sattva.
When you perform Rudra Abhishekam in your name, a special sankalpa mantra are going to be chanted in your name alongside your specific prayer. This sankalpa mantra will act as a bridge between you and therefore the energy and auspiciousness created for you by the Rudra Abhishekam. Through the sankalpa mantra, the effect and benefits of the Rudra Abhishekam are going to be directly transferred to you. Rudra Abhishekam will make healing happen in you, adding joy and peace and healthiness to you and your family.

Someone asked Adi Shankaracharya what is that one thing that can give you liberation as well as all material pleasures and achievements, Shankaracharya replied, “Shri Rudram.”

Shri Rudram consists of five major parts:

Ganapathi Puja : We pray to Ganapathi to remove any Obstacles.
Anganyas: is the process in which one invokes the deity within themselves before they can pray to the deity outside them. Before the Shri Rudram starts, the person performing the puja offers flowers to all the gods and then puts some on their own head. This act is done to recognize that there is the energy of Rudra in themselves. Only after the invocation of Rudra in oneself, one becomes eligible to perform the Rudra Puja.
Panchamritam Snanam: After Anganyas, the abhishekam (worship) of the Shiva Lingam is done with the panchamritam. The elements of the panchamritam represent the pancha-tattvas (the five elements of which the universe is made – space, air, fire, water, and earth). Shivalinga itself is the symbol of this existence, including all manifest and unmanifested universe.
All the tattvas in this existence are pacified by offering the five components of the panchamritam. These components are – milk, curd, jaggery, honey, and ghee. Offering a mixture of these five over a Shivalinga is symbolic of pacifying the five elements across the existence. It is the harmony within these five elements that allows peace to pervade. So, the Shri Rudram is not done for the benefit of self because worshiping a Shivalinga is like worshiping the entire existence.

Namakam: Namakam is recognizing the presence of Shiva tattva in everything. As per quantum physics, we are all made up of the same energy. This part of Rudram is done to recognize that the same energy pervades in everyone and everything. For example, obeisance is paid even to the bow and arrows of the Rudra. At one place, the chant mentions:
Vanchate Parivanchate, taskaranaye namo namaha
Here, the Rudra is worshiped in the form of thieves and smugglers. This is to recognize that Rudra, the energy that is omnipresent, is in the best of the best and the worst of the worst.

Chamakam: In this, we recognize that all of the things present in the existence are within us. So, that tattva or Rudra is present everywhere and everything that contains that energy is within me. And here we worship the presence of that Rudra within us.
Unless we worship Durga, worshiping of the Shiva is incomplete. Before starting the Rudram, one worships the Rudra within oneself. And after being the Rudra, we have to worship the goddess in her Durga form, who represents all the manifest universe.Since Vedic times, it has been known that Rudra Puja is the most powerful tool to bring peace in the environment. In all the Shankaracharya Parampara (the wisdom lineage of Shankaracharya), one thing that has been followed with utmost discipline and commitment, is common across all the paramparas, is the Monday Rudra Puja. All Shankaracharyas perform the Monday Rudra Puja in their own particular way. This is the reason that Adi Shankaracharya established four peethas (knowledge centers) in four corners of the country so that with these practices, there is prevalence of peace across the country and the world. To maintain the peace and harmony in nature, Shri Rudram is performed.
