Lord Shiva - The Most Benevolent Of All that Bestows Good Fortune
Rudra, as mentioned in the Rig Vedas is the most ancient form of Lord Shiva. Rudra has been conceptualised as someone who is wild, roars and howls. He is a hunter by profession and in Sanskrit language this name signifies wild. He has a dreadful manifestation and therefore his devotees fear his wrath. Much later, Rudra has been descriptively evolved and the Upanishads refer him as Shiva, the most benevolent of all. Rudra is personified as a short tempered one who is quick to release his weapons against those who infuriate him. He provides good luck and heals devotees in times of need. In ancient literature, He is said to exude youthful vibrancy, is malevolent and scary. His complexion is tawny (yellowish brown), radiant and glowing like the sun. He has very strong limbs and beautiful features with striking lips. He wears attractive jewellery and his braided locks, knotted in a pile on top of the head like a crown, are bedecked with rudraksh (sacred beads) and crescent moon. He is equipped with a powerful bow from which a steady flow of arrows are emitted to destroy the enemy.
Sage Satapatha in his treatise ‘Maharnava Karma Vipaka’ listed four types of abhisheka procedures compatible with Vedic and scriptural lore and abhisheka is the Lord’s favourite form of worship. These are Rudram, Ekadasa Rudram, Maha Rudram and Athi Rudram – each being more powerful than the preceding one.
Namaka recited once along with recital of Chamaka once constitutes one Rudram.
11 recitations of Namakam + 1 Anuvaka of Chamakam is called Ekadasa Rudram i.e. after chanting the Namakam, the first anuvaka of Chamakam is chanted afterwards, then another round of Namakam is chanted followed by the second Anuvaka of Chamakam, and so on until the 11th chanting of Namakam is followed by the 11th Anuvaka of Chamakam.
· 11 rounds of Ekadasa Rudram chanting is one Laghu Rudram
· 11 rounds of Laghu Rudram chanting is one Maha Rudram (1,331 times of chanting)
