Pradosham March 2015 date – Monthly Shiva Pradosh Fasting dates in March 2015



Pradosham is an auspicious day associated with Shiva and Parvati. March 2015 Pradosham dates are March 2 and March 18. Pradosham occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning (Krishna Paksha) and waxing phase (Shukla Paksha) of the moon.

The pradosham fasting on March 18 is highly auspicious as it falls on Monday.

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.

Most devotees make it a point to be present at a Shiva temple or offer prayers at home.
