Man is always tying to become something else and is in a ceaseless mode of comparison, conflict and contradiction which automatically leads to failure of expectations. The Vedas teach us to experience the true bliss in life, which springs forth when one does not get engrossed in conflict and is aware of his auspicious and blissful nature. The Rudropanishad also gives this truth of being everything and nothing at the same time transporting u to an auspicious and joyous level and elevating our vibrations to match that of divine beings. Rudra in his benign form also represents Vishnu-the protector. Once the terrific attitude is subdued and absorbed within itself, Rudra calms down to the consciousness of Vishnu and Shiva protecting and spreading joy. This being the case, the one who chants or listens to this divine vibrations get automatically transported to a satvic and benign mode, and makes all those around happy by spreading his state of joy. He is free of sorrow and in a permanently joyous state beyond suffering.
