Significance of Lord Shiva`s Rudrabhishek

Lord Shiva is also known as Rudra and Rudrabhishek is the ritual bath of the Shiv Lingam. It is one of the most significant and popular ceremonies to please Lord Shiva and is seen as the greatest spiritual puja in all the Vedic scriptures. Performing this puja bestows one with health, wealth and happiness and offers protection against enemies, negativity and evil.


Procedure to perform Rudrabhishek

Shiv Lingam is washed by water along with the continuous chanting of the Rudra Sukhta, a Vedic mantra. Other items like cow milk, coconut water, rice, powdered sugar, ghee, curd, honey, sugarcane juice etc are also needed.


Vedic Sadhaks perform the Rudrabhishek which begins with Lakshmi Ganesh Puja in the morning. After this, Shivling abhishek is carried out throughout the day using the above mentioned items. Later, flowers especially lotus flowers are used to decorate the Shivling and apart from flowers, leaves of the Bilva Patra tree are also used for decoration purpose. After all these rituals, aarti of 108 diyas is performed at the end and prasad is distributed among the Sadhaks and devotees who attended the puja.
