Lord Shiva is worshipped across the world in one or the other form. Known by various names such as Shankar, Mahadev, Bholenath, Rudra and so on, Lord Shiva is also known as a destroyer (of evil). The name Rudra, in the Vedas, is signified as a violent storm and the destroyer of all sorrows. It focuses on the aggressive side of Mahadev over his gentle side.
Lord Shiva as we all know stands for being forgiving and merciless, calm and aggressive, creator and destroyer! One of the mythological significance states that Bholenath is called Rudra because of Rudra Tandav nrithya.
The second mythological story states that Lord Brahma requested Mahadev to create interesting beings as he had created enough ordinary beings and wanted to see something extraordinary. Lord Shiva obliged the request and created 11 immortal beings. They were named as Kapaali, Pingala, Bhima, Virupaksha, Vilohitaa, Ajesha, Shavasana, Shasta, Shambu, Chanda, and Dhruva.
It was the creation of the 11 Rudras that bestowed the name Rudra upon God Shankar.
Rudra is a part of 33 key deities in Veda. The son of Kashyap and Aditi – 12 Aditya – 8 Vastu – 2 Ashvini – 11 Rudra. There are a total of 33 Koti types of devatas in Veda.
It is also said that Lord Rama performed the Rudrabhishek Puja at Rameshwaram before killing Ravana.
Rudrabhishekam Puja is an abhishekam for Shiva which is a holy bath of Shivling, worshipped in the form of Lingam, found in temples and at different places across India.
Rudrabhishekam Puja is considered as the most ultimate Puja of Lord Shiva to gain Shankara’s blessings as Abhishekam is considered as the favourite of the Lord.
Rudrabhishek Puja can be performed regularly and for various reasons. Some people even have reservations whether it can be performed in the evenings or not. The answer is yes, the Puja can be performed during the evenings as well. In fact, during Ardra Nakshatra which comes in the month of Thiruvathira (December-January), Abhishekam is performed throughout the night.
Lord Shiva is worshipped on all days of the week, but Monday is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is considered beneficial to worship Lord Shiva on Monday to get rid of all the troubles.
The mythological story behind the full moon reveals that Chandra, the Moon-god, had married 27 daughters of King Daksha who represented 27 nakshatras in the sky. Though he had married to all 27, he gave special and more attention to Rohini, which had upset his other wives. King Daksha was notified by his daughters, and he warned Chandra Dev several times, but despite repeated warnings, Moon God continued showering attention on Rohini.
Consequently, King Daksha cursed the Moon Lord, and the effects started to appear on the Moon. Chandra gradually shrank in size and started losing his glow. Subsequently, Chandra Dev started worshipping Mahadev religiously, and Lord Shiva blessed Chandra Dev to regain his powers and beauty gradually.
Hence, a full moon appears once in approximately 15 days and performing the Rudrabhishek Puja on Full moon is considered beneficial.
Shravan Month, Shivratri / Pradosh (13th day of Panchanga), and Amavashya are considered the most virtuous for the Puja.
