Hi All: I would like to learn and start chanting the Rudram. I plan to do so by reading the english translated version of alongside listening to the CD, so that I can recite along and learn. I have two doubts: 1) Can women chant the Rudram, or is it generally considered inappropriate? 2) Are there only special occasions for which this should be chanted, or can I chant it every week (say on a Tuesday) 3) Also, do you know how long it takes to chant the entire Rudram at a stretch? Any thoughts or suggestions on the above questions would be very appreciated. Thanks!
