Sri Rudram is a powerful stotram of Lord Shiva, describing the destructive aspect of the Lord. It helps us understand what to seek from God, while seeking forgiveness for sins committed, and asking for the fulfillment of wishes.  Sri Rudram Laghunyasam alone with Namakam and Chamakam is a Vedic chant from Krishnya YajurVeda, Trittriya Samhita.

By chanting the Namakam, the devotee takes refuge in Rudra by acknowledging his ferocity, and asks the benevolent aspect of Lord Shiva to be invoked by worshiping his  various attributes. While chanting Chamakam, the devotee asks for the fulfilment of wishes of all beings in all walks of life, including Moksha which is the ultimate goal.

Laghunyasam, a part of Sri Rudram is chanted before Namakam and Chamakam to get purified, and become fully divine, while absorbing the Lord’s nature into our own self before worshipping  As such, we divinize ourselves first, become God, and then we worship God. This is the purification ritual done before Sri Rudram  Namakam and Chamakam chanting.

Other reasons To Chant Sri Rudram Laghunyasam 

  1. Body, mind, intellect and sense organs get polluted everyday, so we require a chant to purify them. 
  2. A healthy body and mind are essential for focus, to become one with God while chanting the Namakam and Chamakam. 
  3. The chanting invokes all the elements, the planets and deities as powers that exists within us and asks for nourishment of our health or any others health

As we chant Laghunyāsam, we lightly place our hands on each area of the body that we wish to nourish doing Kara Nyasa and Anga Nyasa, to enhance our awareness and healing. Laghunyasa means ‘lightly placed’.

Sri Rudram Laghunyasam Chanting

Sri Rudram Laghunyasam Chant consists of 7 sections. They are mentioned below and explained in the later sections

Sri Rudram Laghunyasam
  1. Lord Shiva is meditated upon with all his attributes as Eka rupa Ishvara and Vishwaroopa Ishvara.
  2. We pray and ask for protection for all our organs by invoking the respective deities  of each organ, and also for a general protection around us.
  3. We ask for health, and long life by linking body, senses, mind, prana and awareness. We are also reminded of that infinite Consciousness that connects us all.
  4. Here, with this chant, we understand who received Sri Rudram and how it should be chanted and receive Lord Shiva’s blessing for chanting of Sri Rudram.
  5. We chant and do KARA NYASA  and ANGA NYASA for establishing divinity in the hands, fingers and body parts
  6. Two Dhanya sloka’s in which Lord Shiva is meditated upon as Nirguna Brahman.  Following this is Lord Ganapathi Dhyanam to remove any obstacles while chanting Sri Rudram Namakam and Chamakam
  7. Lastly we ask for blessings from Lord Shiva.

1. Lord Shiva is Meditated with HIS Attributes

Lord Shiva with attributes

ōṃ athātmānagṃ śivātmānag śrī rudrarūpa-ndhyāyēt ॥

suddhasphaṭika saṅkāśaṃ trinetraṃ pañca vaktrakam |
gaṅgādharaṃ daśabhujaṃ sarvābharaṇa bhūṣitam

nīlagrīvaṃ śaśāṅkāṅkaṃ nāga yaṅñopa vītinam |
vyāghra carmottarīyaṃ ca vareṇyamabhaya pradam

kamaṇḍal-vakṣa sūtrāṇāṃ dhāriṇaṃ śūlapāṇinam |
jvalantaṃ piṅgaḷajaṭā śikhā muddyota dhāriṇam

sarva vyāpina-mīśānaṃ rudraṃ vai viśvarūpiṇam |
evaṃ dhyātvā dvijaḥ samyak tato yajanamārabhe

Here Lord Shiva is meditated upon in three different forms, Eka roopa Ishvara and Viswa roopa Ishvara and in the end as Nirguna Brahman. Depending upon the maturity of the devotee. All the three stages of Lord Shiva are meditated in Sri Rudram Laghunyasam, now let’s see the meaning of these Slokas.

The first line of the sloka says that we should meditate on the Sri Rudra form of Lord Shiva who is the embodiment of propitious and Ananda.

In the form of Eka roopa Ishvara , we look upon Lord Shiva as a person having crystal like fair complexion ‘Suddhaspatika Sankasam’, and having three eyes, ‘Trinetram’ the left eye signifying the sun, the right eye is the moon and the  third eye is the fire (Agni).  The third eye represents knowledge.

Lord Shiva is ‘Pancavaktrakam’, having five heads.  Four heads facing the four sides and the fifth head looking upwards.  The fifth head facing south of Lord Shiva is portrayed as Dakshinamurthy, the ultimate Guru conveying the supreme self-knowledge for all spiritual seekers.

śuddhasphaṭika saṅkāśaṃ trinetraṃ pañca vaktrakam |
gaṅgādharaṃ daśabhujaṃ sarvābharaṇa bhūṣitam

Lord Shiva is also holding River Ganga on this jatta and controlled and blessed the flow of Ganga to the universe and hence called Gangadaram. Ganga also represents self-knowledge. Dasabhujam, represents the ten arms of Lord Shiva spreading in all the ten directions, four cardinal and four ordinal directions and then up and down.  Lord Shiva wears lustrous ornaments in the form of  snakes! on his body, hence called Sarva bharana Bhushitam

nīlagrīvaṃ śaśāṅkāṅkaṃ nāga yaṅñopa vītinam |
vyāghra carmottarīyaṃ ca vareṇyamabhaya pradam

Lord Shiva while swallowing the poison to save the world held it in his throat and hence became blue necked, Nilagrivam. He also wore the curved moon on his head and hence called Sasankankam.  The moon represents the time principle through which we determine the time cycle from its movement, showcasing that the Lord is beyond time and has complete control over it.

nāga yaṅñopa vītinam – He is wearing another snake as sacred thread and vyāghra carmottarīyaṃ ca, a tiger skin as his dress. vareṇyam abhaya pradam  He is of the nature of Ananda, who is the goal of all the devotees and the one who removes fear and protects all.

kamaṇḍal-vakṣa sūtrāṇāṃ dhāriṇaṃ śūlapāṇinam |
jvalantaṃ piṅgaḷajaṭā śikhā muddyota dhāriṇam

Lord Shiva represents sanyasi Parampara with Kamandalu and aksha mala.  HE has also got ‘sulapaninam’ the weapon to destroy all the asuras. ‘Jvalantam Pingalajatta śikhā muddyota dhāriṇam’ He is the ONE who is bright and radiant and who has kept Ganga Jalam in his golden yellow colour Jata, his matted hair.

vṛṣa skandha samārūḍham umā dehārtha dhāriṇam |
amṛtenāplutaṃ śāntaṃ divyabhoga samanvitam

Lord Shiva riding on a bull is pure as amrutham and this is indicated by abhisekam, HE is of the nature of Ananda and is also known as Ardhanarishvara, the Lord who has Uma devi as the second half of HIS body. He is seated on a divine Simhasanam in the Himalayas with all the riches. 

Having seen Lord Shiva as Eka roopa,. Now Sri Rudram Laghunyasam sloka gives the second aspect, that is Vishwa roopa Ishvara.

digdevatā samāyuktaṃ surāsura namaskṛtam |
nityaṃ ca śāśvataṃ śuddhaṃ dhruva-makṣara-mavyayam

Lord Shiva is surrounded by devatas from all directions and is worshipped by all devas and asuras. He is one who is Eternal, Changeless, Pure, Motionless, Tranquil and without any Blemish.

sarva vyāpina-mīśānaṃ rudraṃ vai viśvarūpiṇam |
evaṃ dhyātvā dvijaḥ samyak tato yajanamārabhe

Lord Shiva is not only located in Kailasa but he is all-pervading in the whole cosmos as Viswaroopa Ishvara. Through these slokas, one has to meditate on Lord Shiva with all his attributes and then Rudra pooja has to be performed.

6. DHYANAM (Nirguna Brahma Dhyanam)

Now that we have done Eka roopa and Vishwaroopa chanting in the beginning six slokas of Sri Rudram Laghunayasam, now we are going to Nirguna Brahman dhyanam, we are praising Lord Shiva as formless, attribute less, the absolute Nirguna Brahman, here we look upon Shiva as the very creation itself.

āpātāḷa-nabhaḥsthalānta-bhuvana-brahmāṇḍa-māvisphurat-

Akasha Lingam

The Sky, Akasha in its curvature form looks like a Lingam, and it houses all the 14 lokas of Brahmanda. Lord Shiva is seen as this Akasha Lingam. Abhisheka to this Linga is done by the Full Moon rays emitting water called amruta jalam that pervades the whole cosmos on full moon day.

Worship this absolute and ultimate Lord Shiva while doing Abhishekam and chanting Sri Rudram and pray to that Changeless, Nirguna Lord Shiva for obtaining all the purusharthas (dharma, artha, kama, moksha).

brahmāṇḍa vyāptadehā bhasita himarucā bhāsamānā bhujaṅgaiḥ

Ekadasha Rudras

This all-pervading Lord Shiva is worshiped in 11 different forms (Ekadasha Rudra), who are all smeared with Vibhutis, have snake as their ornaments, whose necks are dark in colour due to drinking poison, having moons on their heads, they are armed with bows and arrows to destroy the asuras, they are three eyed and are wearing rudraksha malas and they remove fears and grant peace to all the devotees.

The glories of all these 11 Rudra’s are mentioned in Sri Rudram Namakam and may all these Rudra’s bless us with happiness and  with all the four Purushastras. (artha, kama, dharma and moksha)

After chanting Sri Rudram Laghunyasam and Namakam, we chant Chamakam and express all our desires (material and spiritual) while asking for any purusharthas. (Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha).

SRI MAHAGANAPATHI DHYANAM
