Pradosh Vrat – 6th April 2020

Pradosh is considered to be one of the most powerful vrats, (fasts), according to ancient Hindu wisdom, where it is believed that Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati grant all heartfelt wishes to their devotees on this day.

 

This auspicious day is observed by worshiping Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. According to the Hindu calendar, the Pradosh rituals begin at sandhya kala (twilight) at dusk between 5.45pm – 6.45pm, an hour before sunset. On this day Shiva is worshiped with mantra chanting and abhishek (bathing ritual), as a way to express respect and gratitude.

 

FASTING RULES

Believed to be a day of success, well-being, welfare and happiness and it is said, that all propitious work should be done on this day.

 

The most important feature of the day is to pray to a Shivling and offer milk abhishek (bath) with white flowers, while chanting.

 

The Pradosh Vrat begins from the morning, which marks the beginning of the Pradosh day. According to Hindu calenders and beliefs, this ritual starts when the sun rises in the morning. So, the vrats starts and is continued through the whole day and night, one can only break the fast, when the next morning comes and you prepare fresh food to start your next day. Some devotees believe in fasting from sunrise to sunset, and as the sun sets, Lord Shiva’s shrine is celebrated and all the rituals are followed throughout the night.
