Rudrabhishekam pooja is done to worship lord Shiva in Rudra form. Rudra Suktham is chanted while performing the Abhishekam to the Shiva lingam. Lord Shiva is also known as Bholenath as he gets very easily pleased by the prayers of his devotes.
In this pooja Shiva lingam is bathed with panchamritam and water. All the eleven forms of Rudra are worshiped by using 11 types of abhishekam, Rudra vilva archana, shiva astotra and 11 types of namaskarams are performed.
After the Pooja is completed the Kalasha water which was kept for the pooja are used to perform abhishekam for both the swamy and the Devotee.
