What is ‘Shri Rudram’?

Shri Rudram is a powerful hymn and a prayer that is recited to revere and to worship the Supreme, Lord Shiva. Sri Rudram finds its mention in the Krishna Yajurveda's Taittiriya Samhita. This mantra or hymn comprises of two chapters which are mentioned in the 4th Kanda (book) of the Krishna Yajurveda's Taittiriya Samhita. These two chapters are ‘Namakam’ and ‘Chamakam’.

The uniqueness of this stotra or hymn is that it is dedicated to the all-pervading forms of Lord Shiva which is the ‘Rudra-Shiva’ which means worshipping the Lord in His Rudra (terrifying, angry and destructive) form while, also worshipping Him in His Shiva form which is calm, auspicious and serene.

What is Sri Rudram Namakam Chamakam?

The Namakam Chamakam as mentioned above is two chapters of ‘Shri Rudram’.The Namakam forms the fifth chapter and Chamakam is the seventh chapter of the main stotra in the 4th book of Krishna Yajurveda's Taittiriya Samhita. The fifth chapter of the Sri Rudram Namakam Chamakam is known as ‘Namakam’ like the word Nama, Namo or Namah are often used at the end of every verse.

Namakam is a prayer in which the devotee worships Lord Shiva in His Rudra forms by calling out the various names of those forms invoking Him to take the benevolent form. The devotees also ask Him to take the auspicious form and seek forgiveness for their sins. The word ‘Namah’ is a Sanskrit word which refers to paying ‘homage’ or venerating or salutation to Lord Shiva. The literal meaning of the word ‘Namah’ is formed by joining two words where the word ‘Na’ means ‘no’ or ‘not’ and the word ‘Ma’ refers to mine, thus the literal translation of Namah is ‘not mine’. The word ‘Namah’ thus is often used to show humbleness and one’s expression of submitting self to the Supreme power, Lord Shiva.

Shri Rudram Chamakam

The seventh chapter of the 4th Kanda (book) of Taittiriya Samhita is named as ‘Chamakam’ as the word Cha may or Chame is used in the end of every verse. The word ‘Cha may’ literally means ‘and me’. In Namakam we generally recognize and venerate the Rudra form of Lord Shiva by The Rudram Chamakam is generally recited soon after Rudra Namakam. Let us now understand the Chamakam meaning or the Rudram Chamakam meaning. In Sri Rudram Chamakam, the devotees ask Lord Shiva to bless them abundantly with boons by saying ‘Cha may’ where ‘Cha’ means ‘and’, and the word ‘may kalpatam’ means (be granted unto me).

After offering prayers to Rudra and recognizing Him in the Namakam, Chamakam is immediately recited. In Chamakam, the devotees offer prayers to the Lord asking Him to bless them with 347 boons specifically. Chamakam specifies human happiness and states a list of highest demands that an individual can ask for from the Lord. It talks about various desires and how to ask for them and equally receive them from the Lord. The core of Chamakam is steadily planted in the desires which are worldly which finally leads to the fulfilment of wishes that are divine.

How to chant full Rudram Namakam Chamakam?

It generally takes about 40 minutes to recite the complete Shri Rudram including the Namakam and Chamakam. Also, there is a specific way of reciting or chanting this hymn.

  • After one round of Rudram is recited or chanted, you must recite one Anuvaka of Chamakam.
  • When one recites the Rudram eleven times and then immediately recites one Anuvaka of Chamakam it is addressed as ‘Ekadasa Rudram’.
  • Doing so accounts for one unit of Rudra Homam.
  • When Ekadasa Rudram is done eleven times, it is known as one ‘Laghu Rudram’.
  • When the Laghu Rudra is further chanted, completing eleven rounds it makes one Maha Rudram and
  • When the Maha Rudram is recited for eleven rounds, it makes one Athi Rudram.
  • While performing the “Ati Rudram Yagna”, every day one ‘Maharudram’ is recited and thus in eleven days, the Athirudra Mahayagnam is completed.
