There is a special set of mantras in the Vedas, "Rudra Sukta (Rudri)", which is recited by Bramhan/pundits (priests) while they offer a holy bath to the Shiva-lingam, with the waters of sacred rivers like the Ganges, cow milk, curd (yoghurt), ghee, honey and sugar powder. This ritual, known as "Rudrabhisheka", is an important part of Shiva-puja.

Rudrabhishekam is performed to Lord Shiva. legend goes thaat Lord Shri Rama performed Rudrabhishekam at Rameshwaram before crossing the sea to reach lanka. This abhishekam is performed to wash away one's sin and bring home prosperity and happiness in the family.

Pradosham is the one of the favourite days for Lord Shiva and this Rudrabhishekam can be performed on this day. Or alternatively Monday's is also considered to be auspicious day for Lord Shiva.

Rudrabhishekam to be accompanied by the recital of Namakam and Chamakam and can be performed at any Shiva Temple or at one's Own house rather than a rented House
