History of the Mantra

According to the Rig Veda, there 11 Rudras. They are:
  • Kapaali
  • Pingala
  • Bhima
  • Virupaksha
  • Vilohitaa
  • Ajesha
  • Shavasana
  • Shasta
  • Shambu
  • Chanda
  • Dhruva.
No force in the Universe can escape the wrath of Rudra .It is believed that Rudra does not differentiate between demigods and asuras if destruction is necessary.
In one story, Kamadeva, the God of Love, was one such deity to face the fury of Rudra. When Kamadeva tried to disrupt Lord Shiva's meditation, he was burned down to ashes.
This story depicts the power of Rudra who can even destroy love if it becomes a distraction from the necessary pursuits.
Disciples of Lord Shiva chant the mantra in the month of Shravan. Especially on the Mondays that fall in the month of Shravan. They fast on Mondays and the fast is popularly known as Shravan Somwar (Monday of Shravan.)
