Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD
Rudra is prana shakti, the vibrant life force. Rudra shakti and prana shakti are identical. This shakti pulls us out of inertia, making us vibrant and energetic. Rudra shakti fills the entire universe. That is why the world made of matter and physical energy is able to retain its existence. All forms of change -- creation, maintenance, and annihilation -- are propelled by rudra shakti. A direct experience of this truck opens the floodgate of enlightenment and the lack of it serves as the ground for bondage.
Although these 16 mantras together constitute the indivisible core of Rudra Yoga, each mantra in its own right constitutes an independent and complete practice. Prayoga shastra, the applied section of Tantra vidya, gives detailed guidelines on how to arrange many more sets of mantras within and around these 16 mantras of Shata Rudriya.
