Pradosham February 2014 date – Monthly Pradosham Fasting for Shiva in February 2014

Pradosham is dedicated to Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is observed on the 13th day of a fortnight in a Hindu calendar. February 2014 Pradosham dates are February 12 (Wednesday) and February 27 (Friday). Pradosham occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning (Krishna Paksha) and waxing phase (Shukla Paksha) of the moon.

Please note that the Pradosham on February 27, 2014 is highly meritorious as Mahashivratri Coincides with Pradosham.

The popular belief is that Shiva and Parvati are in a very generous and happy moon during the period and therefore fulfills the wishes of the devotees.

The Pradosham period is in the evening from 1.5 hours before sunset and 1 hour after sunset. The fast which began at sunrise is broken during the period.
