During Shiva worship, Nandi worship and other Shaiva rituals, the recitation of Rudradhyaya has been essential in both Shrauta and Smarta traditions. Any person reading and reciting traditionally a particular branch of the Vedas should also necessarily recite the particular Rudradhyaya as assigned to that particular branch.
Till today only Rudradhyaya related to the Shakala Samhita of the Rigveda was available. For the first time a Rudradhyaya from Rigveda of Shankhayana Shakha, which has been preserved and recited by the Nagara brahmanas of Baaswara district, in southern Rajasthan is being published.
This edition of Rudradhyaya is superior in many aspects than the ones available earlier as this gives an exposure to the most superior form and tradition of recitation.
