It is undoubtedly Lord Shiva that is worshipped while performing Rudra Homam. Some performers of Rudra Homam create elaborate decorations with the idol of Lord Shiva established near the homakund. The idol is decorated with flowers and garlands and a pooja performed before the Rudra Homam is performed.
The primary purpose of performing Rudra Homam is to seek Lord Shiva’s blessings for longer life. You pray that death, which is inevitable, is delayed till you are prepared for it. In that sense, premature death is sought to be averted through performing the Rudra Homam. As you grow older you can perform this on each of your birthdays.
