    Meaning of the word Rudra
    Every Hindu knows that Shiva is called Rudra. But very few know the meaning of this word.
    Recently I was fortunate to have its meaning quoted from Shivapurana 6-9-14 as given below:

    Rur duhkham duhkha hetum va
    tad dravayati yah prubhuh
    rudra ityucyate tasmat
    Sivah paramakaranam.

    Meaning - rur is sorrow or the reason for getting sorrow. The lord who destroys that is called
    rudrah who is shiva.
