Pradosham and Shivaratri Dates 2023

What is Pradosham?

Pradosham is a special Hindu festival day dedicated to worshipping Lord Shiva. It falls on the thirteenth day of each lunar fortnight, which is the waxing and waning period between the new moon and the full moon days. This day holds significance due to its ability to remove obstacles from one’s daily life and provide blessings for success in all areas. Pradosham also helps us stay focused on attaining spiritual goals such as moksha or liberation from earthly bondage. Additionally, it bestows prosperity upon those who observe it with diligence and reverence.

Benefits of Pradosham

In the Hindu calendar, Pradosham is a very significant day. Hindus celebrate this day in order to ask Lord Shiva for blessings. Lord Shiva is a Hindu deity who represents purity and the annihilation of all evil. On Pradosham, devotees offer prayers for mental and physical health, release from suffering, and removal of whatever impediments they may be encountered in life. People also carry out a number of rituals, such as taking a holy bath in a body of water or giving food to the needy. On this day, prayers are offered to Lord Shiva in the belief that he will bless his followers and grant them peace and pleasure.

What is Maha Shivratri?

Maha Shivratri is an annual Hindu festival that celebrates the marriage of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It usually falls in the month of February or March, depending on the lunar cycle. Its celebration typically involves a prayer service called puja held at night with devotees gathering to sing devotional hymns and chanting mantras devoted to Shiva. People also go to temples for special rituals throughout the day. Traditional offerings such as fruits and flowers are made to show appreciation for blessings received from Lord Shiva over the year. Many people keep a fast on this holy day, abstaining from food until nightfall as an act of devotion.

Benefits of Maha Shivratri

One of the most significant holidays for devoted Hindus is Maha Shivaratri. It honours and celebrates Lord Shiva, one of the Hindu trinity of gods that also consists of Brahma and Vishnu. Maha Shivaratri commemorates the occasion when Shiva wed Goddess Parvati in the form of a lingam, which stands for the divine union of two diametrically opposed forces. On this day, followers practise stringent fasts all night long in order to obtain his blessings and to offer prayers for world peace, material prosperity, and spiritual well-being.
