Sri Rudram Chamakam Homa

The Shri Rudram to which the Chamakam  is added by scriptural tradition is a Vedic stotra dedicated to Rudra, an earlieraspect or epithet of Lord Shiva. The Sri Rudram Chamakam homa provides relief from problems and fulfillment of wishes and is known to removes all doshas and difficulties. It is said that after killing the demon Bhasmasura with the help of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva performed the Tandava dance and then the Sri Rudra homa for the betterment of humanity. The place where this homa was performed is where the 'Sri Kalahasti; temple is located in Andhra Pradesh, India. This temple is famous for one of the Panchabhootha lingas known as 'Vayu' linga. Sri Rudram Chamakam consists of two parts. The first part is the Sri Rudram also known as Namakam because of the repeated use of the word “Namo” in it.The text describes the aspects or epithets of Rudra. The devotee asks the benevolent Lord Shiva to be invoked and not the terrible aspect and also for forgiveness of sins. Shri Rudram includes the famous Shaivite Panchakshara mantra 'Om Namah Shivaya' and the healing Mrutyunjaya Mantra.The second part, is known as Chamakam because of the repeated use of the words "Cha me" which literally means, "and to me (be this granted)". In this hymn, the devotee identifies himself as Lord Shiva himself and asks for fulfillment of wishes. Before each homa or puja is performed in Amma's Lalita Temple, a "sankalpa" is recited in Sanskrit, a divinely powerful language. During the sankalpa, the names of all the sponsors are recited. Amma assures us that when we are included in a sankalpa, we become spiritually connected to the power of the divine ceremony and receive its full benefits immediately, just as if we were physically present.
