Dear all,


Pranams to lotus feet of swami for giving me this wonderful oppurtunity to act as his instrument to present this elite messages on rudram. I pray swami to give all good thought to present this email.


It is said that....


Chamakam Namakam caiva purusa suktam tathaiva ca |Nityam trayam prayunjano Brahmaloke mahiyate ||


He who ever recites Namakam and Chamakam along with Purusa suktam daily will be honoured in Brahmaloka


Rudram first anuvaka ends with one maha sloka


Namasthe asthu bhagavan visweswaraaya mahaadevaaya tryambakaaya,Tripuraanthakaayaa trikagni kaalaaya kaalaagni rudhraaya neelakantaaya,Mrutyumjayaaya sarveshwaraaya sadashivaaya sriman maha devaaya nama.Salutations to you God,Who is the lord of the universe,Who is the greatest among gods,Who has three eyes,Who destroyed the three cities,Who is master of the three fires,Who is the Rudura who burns the world,Who has a blue neck,Who won over the God of death,Who is Lord of everything,Who is ever peaceful,And who is the greatest God with goodness.Salutations again.

is one of the powerful slokas of shri rudram. I hope with the meanings and text, we have covered all the inherent meaning and tatparyam of first anuvaka. It is to be noted that first anuvaka is one of the longest anuvakas of rudram Let us try to recite and chant the anuvaka, listen to it carefully and learn it with the essence.


Let us now move to the text and meanings of second anuvaka.


The second anuvaaka consists of two sukthaas, is part of nature in all its glory as plants and medicinal herbs. He is requested to untie the bonds of the day-to-day life. This is chanted for destruction of enemies, possession of wealth, getting of kingdom andso on.

Here is the basic text and meaning of 2nd anuvaka:


Note: ca is pronounced as "cha" in the verses
