Pradosh Vrat November 2017 – Shiva Pradosha Fasting Dates in November

Pradosh also referred as Pradosha Vrata is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Pradosh Vrat dates in November 2017 are November 1 and November 15.

The fasting occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning and waxing phase of the moon on the Trayodashi day (Thirteenth day after new moon and full moon). Pujas and rituals on Pradosham are performed during the twilight period – around 90 minutes before and 90 minutes after sunset.

Fasting from sunrise to sunset is an important aspect of Pradosha. The fast is broken after the evening prayers. The puja and worship are done in the evening. Most devotees spend the evening on the day in a Shiva temple.
