The abhisheka of any type must be offered with the recitation of Rudradhyayamantra for full benefit. Done so, beatitude seeks and stays with the sevarthi. Do it at once and get the benefit forthwith. Another factor now demands attention and implementation. According to scriptural canons, the entitlement of benefit is restricted only to those who are Rudras. If the sevarthi is not Rudra and does not possess that virtue, he must be rest contented to give up the hope of getting any merit. But the Vedic sages have made certain provisions to make the desiring theist to avail the benefit, though the sastras unmistakably enunciated - Na Vishnurvishnu marchayet - na rudro rudra marchayet - "If one is not a Vaishnava, he cannot worship Vishnu, and likewise if one is not Saiva, he cannot worship Siva. They laid down 'a procedure to make man Siva or Vishnu by following a certain procedure. If the sevarthi wears on his forehead Tripundranamam, he becomes Vaishnava, and ash marks similarly makes him Saiva. So, by putting on the ash marks along with wearing of Rudraksha mala, he can offer abhisheka to Lord. Siva.

Putting on those and chanting certain mantras like Mahanyasa and Laghunyasa, anyone can perform the abhisheka ritual. If these are followed scrupulously, Siva feels pleased immensely and grants boon to the satisfaction of the devotees.
