INR 5,601


Pradosh Vrat Katha is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Pradosh means the dusk of the early night or evening tide. Thus Pradosh Puja and Vrat Katha are observed on the 13th day of each lunar fortnight. As the katha is done in the evening twilight, the katha is called Pradosh katha. The Skanda Purana also states the benefits of the Pradosh Vrat Katha and that those who practice it with unflinching faith and devotion are bound to possess wealth, health, happiness.

Pradosha Vrata on every Trayodashi tithi (i.e. 13th Lunar day falling in Krishna and Shukla Pakshas) during Sandhya Kaala (ie. During or after sunset).

The Lord of 13th Trayodashi Tithi is Kaama Deva whereas the Lord of the succeeding Tithi i.e. 14th Chaturdashi is Lord Rudra (Shiva) himself. The 14th day of the dark half of every month is called Shivaratri or Masa shivaratri. The one in the month of Magh (Feb-Mar) is called Maha shivaratri, since it is the greatest of all.

There are five types of Pradosh:
1. Nitya Pradosh: The evening time on all days, between just 3 ghatis (72 minutes) before sunset and the time when the stars rise or become visible in the sky.
2. Paksha Pradosh: Sandhya (evening) time of Shukla Paksha Chaturthi (4th Lunar day after New Moon) every month.
3. Maasa Pradosh: Sandhya Krishna Paksha Trayodashi (13th Lunar day after Full Moon) every month.
4. Maha Pradosh: Sandhya time of Krishna Paksha Trayodashi which falls on a Saturday.
5. Pralaya Pradosh: The time when the entire universe gets annihilated of merged with Lord Shiva. Pradosh Vrat is observed on every 13th Lunar day after full and new Moon, by the wife and husband jointly with the hope of being free from, miseries or for gaining material prosperity.
