The term 'Rudra' refers to the fierce form of Lord Shiva. Rudra Yagna is performed to worship Shiva, and is the most sacred and powerful among all the Maha Yagna. The Rudra consists of Deiva Yagna (worship of Shiva and Other deities), and Manushya yagna (performed with many devotees seeking the grace of the God.)
It is performed to wash away all the sins and afflictions,to maintain peace, prosperity and happiness, and family togetherness.
