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!
