    Generally there are specific mantras for offerings, including what you're offering, etc. But while that's going on, another priest, or a group of people will often chant rudram off to the side. Kind of like 'in the background', so it creates an inner vibration around the entire place.

    When I did the Rudrabhishekam in our temple (that was some 50 years ago), it came after the puja; but I think my grandfather did it before the puja. I do not know what is the scripturally suggested sequence, if there is any.
