Pradosh Vrat march 2020

The time after sunset and before the night is Pradosh Kaal. The Pradosha Vrat is a sacred Hindu fasting for the worship of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. The Pradosh Puja takes place in the evening on the Trayodashi of both Lunar fortnights i.e. in Hindu month Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha. In general, these are the 13th day or tithi, or lunar days, from the Amavasya (New Moon) and Full Moon (Poornima).

Pradosh Vrat comes twice every month and it falls on the Trayodashi date of every month. This month, it is falling on Saturday 7th March. Therefore, it would be called Shani Pradosh.

Pradosh Vrat is important if you wish to get the blessings of Lord Shiva. This fast is appropriate and the most fruit giving. On this day, if you worship Lord Shiva in the evening by law, you will also get the blessings of staying healthy and Lord Bholenath will fulfill all the wishes of the devotees.

Pradosh Vrat on the first Saturday of March is even more special because it is falling under the Pushya Nakshatra.

This combination is considered rare. Pradosh and Pushya Nakshatra come every month, but on Saturday, the combination of Pradosh and Pushya Nakshatra and Saubhagya Yoga is formed once in a few years, this time on 7th March.
