Chinmaya Mission Pittsburgh cordially invites you to participate in
Ekadasa Sri Rudra Abhisekam Sahita & Sri Rudra Homam via live stream
“RUDRA” is one of the names of Lord Siva. Sri Rudram talks about the glory of Siva.“Sri Rudram is a vedic hymn describing Lord Siva’s several aspects, viz. His omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence etc. Sri Rudram finds a place as the 4th Prashna in the 4th Khanda of Krishna Yajur Samhita. It is a Maha Mantra. It consists of 164 mantras. Their recital for a stipulated time yields good results and wards off all bad happenings. It is said that regular chanting of it leads to Jnana. The Kaivalyopanishad also echoes this fact. The Anusasanika Parva of Mahabharata mentions that Lord Krishna recited it several times and explained its great power and efficacy.
Rudram has got two portions called Namakkam and Chamakkam each containing eleven chapters or Anuvakas. There are two important and well known Mantras in Sri Rudram, Panchakshari Mantra and Mrithunjaya Mantra.
