Pradosham is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Shiva. Pradosham Vrat dates in November 2013 are November 1 and November 15 and November 30. 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).
The Pradosham on November 30 falls on Saturday and is therefore 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.
