Shri Rudram, also known as Shatarudriyam or Rudropanishad, is one of the most revered mantras, found in most Vedas, for instance, in all 100 branches of Yajurveda. No wonder, then, that it is invariably chanted on all Vedic religious occasions.

Yet, despite its universality, its meaning is not generally taught, and much less understood. Some of us were fortunate to learn about its meaning directly from pujya Swami Dayanandaji. Later, this teaching was brought out as a book. I have been fascinated by it. I chant it often, of course, but more than that I aspired to apply its insights in my own life. My understanding of Shri Rudram was augmented by an excellent commentary on it, in Hindi, by Swami Maheshanandaji, the founder of Shankara Matha in Mt Abu. His public talks on Shri Rudram, in New Delhi in 1975, were also later transcribed into a textbook. I also taught it at the Arsha Vidya Center in 2008.

In this retreat, I decided to base the teaching on unfolding the meaning of the sacred mantras from Shri Rudram. I feel if it helped me in gaining clarity and attaining peace, it would equally apply to those who take the initiative to attend this retreat. I invite all, including householders like me, to join the retreat. The immersive dose of daily chanting followed by its meaning will be a good recipe for accelerating our journey toward a peaceful life.
