Atirudra MahaYagnam from March 1st to March 11th

Atirudra MahaYagnam from March 1st to March 11th

Shiva-Vishnu Temple, Livermore, CA, would like to reach out to the Hindu community in the Bay area and across the US and invite them to participate in the Atirudra Maha Yagnam and Sata Chandi Homam to be performed at the Livermore temple from March 1 through March 11, 2018. This is the first time an event of this magnitude is performed by Livermore Temple. Atirudram is a Mega 11 day event with participation by 121 priests and ritviks, many of them coming all the way from India. We therefore urge devotees to seize the opportunity at hand and participate all eleven days of the event.
What is the Ati Rudram? The four Vedas (Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva) are the roots of our religion and foundation for Sanatana Dharma. Rudram and Chamakam are contained in the Krishna Yajur Veda. Rudram is the most sacred means of worshipping Lord Siva. Eleven recitations of the Sri Rudram (Namakam) followed by one recitation of the Chamakam is called the Ekadasa Rudram. Eleven Ekadasa Rudram recitations make one Laghu Rudram. Eleven Laghu Rudram recitations make Maharudram and eleven Maharudram recitations constitute Ati Rudram!
