Although Lord Shiva is pleased even with a little sadhana, there are some mantras which bring instant results. One such mantra is the Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya mantra. The mantra may look short but it does wonders. Among Lord Shiva’s forms, Rudra is very
easy to please. Chanting Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya is conducive for getting promotions in jobs. It can also be chanted to boost business or start-up, attract clients and increase sales. Those who are fighting court cases gain victory.


The mantra is like a wish-fulfilling tree which fulfills all legitimate desires of the chanter. It has healing powers and can cure chronic disorders. Students can secure flying colours through repeated mantra chanting. This does not mean one stops studying. The mantra is ideal for dancers, as Nataraj the lord of dance is the manifestation of Rudra.

The Best Mantra for Solving Marital Issues

in loving service to Lord Shiva develop a bond with the Lord. The only condition is that one should chant the mantra with faith and love for the deity.

However the Om Namaha Shivaya mantra is subtler. You can watch our video Benefits of Om Namah Shivaya Chanting | Om Namah Shivaya Mantra Benefits to know more.

Understanding the Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya Mantra

To understand the power of the mantra, Let us break the mantra into four parts- ‘Om’, ‘Namo’, ‘Bhagavate’, and ‘Rudraya’. The first part of the mantra is Om. Om is the cosmic sound. The positive vibrations due to Om chanting build immunity and concentration. ‘Namo’ means the act of bowing down. Chanting Namo increases humility and helps in personality development. Lord Shiva loves humble people.


If your goal is to become the eternal servant of Lord Shiva, you can chant the mantra thinking yourself to be a part of the Shiva Parivar.

Invoke Lord Rudra with a heart full of love and trust. He will definitely listen to you. For this to happen, it is essential to be
desireless. The mantra is like a treasure chest and the key to it is a selfless heart. If your mind is filled with greed, lust and anger, you can never assess the full potential of the mantra.


The mantra has the power to open the doors of Kailash where you will eternally serve the lord as His daughter/son. This is a proven fact. ‘Bhagavate’ addresses Lord Rudra as the
Ultimate Reality. Finally ‘Rudraya’ glorifies Lord Rudra, a form of Lord Shiva. Lord Rudra destroys the universe and he is fierce by nature. While chanting the mantra, it therefore becomes essential to drink lots of water, else repeated chanting of the mantra can heat up the body and damage internal organs.

A Pauranic Story about Lord Rudra

Now, I will briefly cover the story of Lord Rudra. At the start of creation, Brahma ordered the 4 Sanak kumaras to produce progeny but the brothers plainly denied his order. Brahma was enraged. His eyebrows tensed as a reflex. From the midst of his eyebrows appeared an infant who was none other than Rudra. The infant wept continuously. From the Sanskrit word Rudan which means crying, Lord Rudra got his name.


Lord Rudra resides in the senses, life force, heart, ether, wind, fire, water, earth, austerity, the moon and the sun. Now, many would want to know the difference between Shiva and Rudra. Rudra is the fierce form of Lord Shiva; he is limitless and knows no rules. On the other hand, Lord Shiva is benevolent and has a family. He is the giver of knowledge, liberation and gets easily pleased by his devotees. He is the conqueror of death and is hence known as Mrityunjaya.

Abodes of Lord Shiva

His eternal abodes are Varanasi and Kailash. He is the supreme deity and the topmost guru for the ascetics, yogis and for those who are inquisitive about the spiritual dimension. Lord Shiva is the totality while Rudra depicts a particular quality of Lord Shiva. Rudra responds immediately to a sincere sadhaka. Now, I shall cover the process of chanting Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya.

How to Chant the Shiva Mantra

Since it is Lord Shiva’s mantra, during Sadhana, eat vegetarian food and maintain celibacy. You can wake up at any time before 7:30 am. It is most auspicious to start chanting the mantra from a Shivaratri day.

In your pooja room, take a bath, wear clean clothes and sit on a woollen mat. On the altar keep an idol or photo of Lord Shiva. Just close your eyes and meditate on the form
of Rudra. You can take a subtler form of Lord Shiva as well. Think about Lord Shiva and take a sankalpa of chanting the mantra for 7, 21 or 41 days without missing a single day.


Express your desire and start chanting. Beginners can chant of 4 rounds of this mantra. While chanting, imagine a slate and you are writing the mantra ‘Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya’ on it. Practice this meditation until the mantra flows naturally. For beginners, this process might seem intimidating. Naturally you will face a lot of distractions. Simply bring your mind back to the slate and continue writing.

You may be taken away by some thought and would not realize how time flew. This is not effective chanting. Increase your will-power by slowly and gradually increasing the time for sadhana. This is a very powerful technique to obtain perfection very soon.
