Rudra Yagya on Full Moon Day

For Health & Prosperity on Thursday 23rd May 2024, Vaisakha Purnima

The term “Rudra” symbolically translates to “Fire emanating from the Earth’s core, spreading divine blessings worldwide”. Sri Rudram is an ancient Vedic chant in adoration of Lord Shiva, featuring a comprehensive list of the deity’s various names.

By reciting the Sri Rudram, Lord Shiva’s numerous characteristics and aspects are honored and worshipped. The benefits of chanting Rudram are immense, and it can be performed with or without the presence of a Vedic yajna ritual. When paired with a Vedic fire ceremony, it transforms into the Rudra Yajna.

Sri Rudram comprises two segments – Namakam and Chamakam. As part of the Yajur Veda, it is universally renowned for its capacity to remove all obstacles and difficulties. Namakam (Chapter 16 of the Yajurveda) and Chamakam (Chapter 18 of the Yajurveda) earn their names from the repetition of the words “Namo” and “Chame”, respectively.
