    Dear members and aasthikas,
    As mentioned by me in the beginning, I start the next part of Sri Rudram, the CHAMAKAM now. This is usually chanted immediately after Namakam.
    While Namakam is a prayer to Rudra to forget about his avenging fierce, fearful and horrendous form and turn himself into a peaceful form and do good to us, Chamakam on the other hand lists out the blessings to be got from a prayer to Rudra and prays Him to regulate and bless our life for a moment forgetting his anger. This also has eleven parts.
    After praying and identifying Lord Siva(Rudra) with everything in Rudram in the Namakam,Chamakam is usually recited immediately after ,in which the devotee asks Him to give him everything,347 things to be precise.The article"cha" and the verb,"kalpatham"mean (and, & be granted unto me). Chamakam gices the idea of human happiness and defines the desires to be asked to be granted.
    In this post the first and second Anuvaakas(sections) are given.
    Please read on.
