How this course works

Śrī Rudram consists of eleven sub-divisions called anuvākas. This hymn is a source of inspiration for the famous genre of nāmāvalis (name mantras). Even in the Vedas, one does not see a section like Śrī Rudram consisting of many names of the divine along with the word, namaḥ, salutation. The famous five-syllabled mantra namaśśivāya, is from this great hymn.

This course can be studied entirely as a self-paced course or in combination with the 1 year live program which starts at Śivarātri. Signs up for the live program are only possible once a year.

Course objectives:

At the end of this one year program, you will:

  • Learn the complete chanting of the Śrī Rudram along with all Vedic phonetic details. This is 11 Anuvākā-s or paragraphs along with a 12th closing paragraph.
  • Learn the significance of this mantra in your life and an overall meaning of each section.
