Pradosham May 2015 date – Monthly Shiva Pradosham Fasting dates in May 2015



Pradosham, also known as Pradosh Vrat, is an auspicious day associated with Shiva and Parvati. May 2015 Pradosham dates are May 1, May 15 and May 31. Pradosham occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning (Krishna Paksha) and waxing phase (Shukla Paksha) of the moon.

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.
