Pradosham November 2016 date – Pradosham Vrat and Fasting Dedicated to Shiva in November 2016

Pradosham  is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Shiva. Pradosham Vrat dates in November 2015 are November 12 and November 26. The fasting occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning and waxing phase of the moon on the Trayodashi day (Thirteenth day after new moon and full moon).

Both the Pradosham in November 2016 are on Saturday - therefore it is known as Shani Pradosham.

Fasting from sunrise to sunset is an important aspect of Pradosham. The fast is broken after the evening prayers. The puja and worship is done in the evening. Most devotees spend the evening on the day in a Shiva temple.

Pujas and rituals on Pradosham are performed during the twilight period – around 90 minutes before and 90 minutes after sunset.
