Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Rudrāṃśa (रुद्रांश) refers to a “devotee of Rudra”, according to the Netratantroddyota commentary on the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 4.5cd-6, while describing the purification process of the initiand]—“[...] All this is to be done with sacrificial offerings into fire with the root mantra, three, etc., times. The penance should have a homa of one-hundred offerings. At the end of that, he should then meditate on the achievement of becoming twice-born and [his place as a] devotee of Rudra (rudrāṃśa-āpatti). [...]”.
