A brief description on Rudra Yagna and its efficacies or benefits are mentioned below:
Yagna is the action done for the benefit of mankind. Yagna is a life sustaining force as enunciated by Lord Krishna in Gita. Yagna is worship of God through three faculties: (Manasa, Vacha, Karmana). Manasa by meditating on Lord Shiva, Vacha by chanting the Mantras, Karmana by offering havan samagri in to yagnakunda with devotion and faith.
This Yagna is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Rudra Yagna is the most sacred and powerful among all the Maha Yagnas. It is a very rare that a Yagna of this significance and magnitude can be witnessed.
Equally rare is the opportunity for the people to actually participate in the worship here in Dharmakshetra.
