Pradosh also known as Pradosham is an auspicious day celebrated on the 13th lunar day (Trayodashi Tithi) in both fortnights of Lunar calendar – the Shukla Paksha (waxing moon phase) and Krishna Paksha (Waning moon phase).
The word pradosham means eliminating sins and hence on this day devotees worship Lord Shiva to get rid of all the sins they have committed and achieve Mohska or Salvation.
The day is dedicated to worship of Lord Shiva and is mainly celebrated in South India. On the day of Pradosm, there is a 3 hour auspicious period when the worship of Lord Shiva gives the best results. That auspicious time starts 1.5 hours before the sunset and lasts for 1.5 hours after the sunset.
On the day of Pradosh, especially during Pradosh Puja Time, devotees observe a fast and worship Lord Shiva. Devotees also wear rudraksha, apply Vibhuti and perform Abisheka of Lord Shiva with Sandal paste and Bilva leaves and apply Fragrance and Diya to Lord along with Naivaedyaas (Food offerings).
When Pradosh falls on Monday it is known as Soma Pradosh, when it falls on Tuesday, it is known as Bhauma Pradosh, when it falls on Thursday, it is known as Guru Pradosh and when it falls on Saturday it is known as Shani Pradosh.
