About Laghu Rudra:
Rudra is one of the names of the Supreme Lord Shiva for His form which is described in the ancient Hindu texts as the most furious and violent one of the otherwise calm and blissful Lord. 'Rud' stands for sorrow and 'ra' means destroy; Rudra is the Stotra/hymn dedicated to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is the Supreme Lord; He is the provider of worldly desires, inner peace, spiritual ascension and fulfilment of material aspects. Rudra is the destroyer of all sorrows. Rudram Namakam and Chamakam is one of the greatest of all Vedic hymns and is the oldest listing of various names of Lord Shiva. Taken from the mid portion of the Taittiriya Krishna Yajur Veda, it is in two parts, that is Namakam and Chamakam The Rudram Namakam or Namakam, sings the glory of Lord Shiva and invokes His benevolence and constitutes 11 chapters, it is also called Sri Rudram. Rudram is chanted for destroying all sins and for removal of all difficulties and Doshas and for overall benefits. Chamakam are sacred hymns recited for fulfilment of all desires and attainment of liberation. The excellent prayer of Rudram grants knowledge and intelligence to the seeker, good health and longevity to the sick, power and strength to the weak, prosperity and opulence to the poor and removes all miseries and difficulties which are some of the Laghu Rudra benefits.
