Three marks—underline, accent, and double accent—are used to show musical notation. The melody of this recitation consists of four notes. A central note—for example, C—is sung when there is no musical notation above or below a syllable. A lower note (B flat) is sung when a horizontal line appears below a syllable (for example, kavim). A single accent above a vowel (for example, namaśte) means a higher note (either C sharp or D). A double accent above a vowel (for example, namő) indicates holding the note for two beats and going up to a higher note (either C sharp or D) on the second beat.
The best way to learn to recite Shri Rudram is to listen to a recording or to someone who knows it while reading and reciting the words.
