The Significance of Daily Rudrabhishekam
“अलंकारप्रियो विष्णु: – अभिषेकप्रिय: शिव:”.
“Alankaarapriyo Vishnu, Abhishekapriyah Shivah”
Daily Shiva-Linga Abhishekam is a Vedic ritual at the Vydic Yagnya Center, performed by our Vedic pundits, with utmost devotion under the supervision of Pundit Samavedula. The registered sponsor’s name is part of this daily Abhishekam.
Abhishekam is the ritualistic bathing ceremony of Lord Siva with sacred substances, namely: Milk (Water element; the sense of taste); Curd (Earth element; the sense of touch); Ghee (Fire element; the sense of sight); Honey (Ether element; the sense of hearing); Sugar (Air element; the sense of smell).
These five, when mixed become ‘Panchamrutams’ (five nectars) and are the five internal and external elements. Panchamrita Abhishekam harmonizes our body’s energy with the world, tuning it to the vibration of the orchestra of life, the ocean of life itself!
Performing the Shiva Linga Abhishekam and Puja is worshipping Lord Shiva in his Rudra form, (representation of the Universe). He is the remover of all sins and afflictions and helps in the attainment of peace, prosperity, and happiness.
Bathing of the Shiva Lingam symbolizes the removal of impurities (false self or ego) from our mind, the ego being the source of all life’s hardships: “Stilling the fluctuations of the mind” (Chitta, Vritti, Nirodhana). This purification ritual also symbolizes the elimination of our material interests that distract us from our spiritual path.
Sponsoring such Lord Shiva Puja and Abhishekam brings success, harmony, peace, and abundance in all the five main areas of life: health and well-being, work/career, finances/wealth, friends/family, ease of life.
