A word of caution to those who wants to learn and chant 'Sri Rudram':
One should consider Vedic chanting, a very sensitive subject matter.
If not properly chanted, it may even yield negative results.
Unlike a sloka or stotram, for a Mantra, it needs special attention to its technicalities.
Please check the help option within the app to learn more on technicalities for a vedic mantram recital. Since this is so, It is best advised and recommended to initially start learning any Vedic Hymn from an adept GURU and then to follow further practice with the help of any tools such as this app.
Know what Chamaka prashna is :
'Chamakam' is a Vedic hymn that forms a part of Yajur Veda, which is usually recited immediately after 'Shri Rudram'.
Chamakam mantram asks the Supreme lord Shiva for fulfillment of wishes. The repeated phrase, cha me literally means, "and to me [be this granted]", accompanied by a list of desirables which are primarily necessary appurtenances for Vedic sacrifices.
There is a famous saying that goes like this ...
** " camakaṁ namakaṁ caiva pauruṣasūktaṁ tathaiva ca
nityaṁ trayaṁ prayuñjāno brahmaloke mahīyate " **
Meaning -- He whoever recites Namakam and Chamakam along with Purusa Sooktam on a daily basis, will be honoured in Brahmaloka.
When Rudram as such is referred, it means both the Namakam and Chamakam part together only.Namakam includes the salutations and Chamakam includes our prayers, each forming 11 anuvakas to resemble the 11 forms of Rudra.
May Lord Shiva Bless all.
Om Namah Shivaya.
