Camakapraśnaḥ

The Camakapraśnaḥ consists of eleven sub-divisions called anuvākas. This hymn is generally recited after Rudrapraśnaḥ in which we ask Īśvara for very specific blessings. Swami Dayananda Saraswati says “Suppose Bhagavān were to appear in front of you and ask what you want, you simply chant the Camakam!!”

Camakam therefore becomes a request to Īśvara in His own words, because it includes everything.
