Importance and Significance of Pradhosha Vrata

An auspicious day dedicated to Lord Shiva, Pradosham falls on the 13th day (Trayodashi) of the lunar fortnight (Paksha). Pradosham Vratam occurs during the two different phases of the moon (waxing and waning) as per the traditional Hindu lunar calendar. A Pradosham falling on a Monday is called Soma Pradosh or Chandra Pradosh, on a Tuesday is known as Bhauma Pradosh, and on a Saturday is called Shani Pradosh. Among all the Pradosham vrats, the Soma Pradosh and Shani Pradosh are the most significant one observed by most devotees. The fast is observed from sunrise until sunset and is considered to be highly beneficial. To know more on the meaning and importance of Pradosham Vratam, continue glancing through the lines herein. 

Pradhosha Vrata Significance 

According to the Shiva Puranas, observing a fast on Pradosham Vratam is regarded as highly auspicious and beneficial. One would be blessed with wealth, children, happiness and honor. While the fast is undertaken by all Shiva devotees, but all women who have been longing for a son specially observe this. Also, praying to Lord Shiva during the course of the fast is said to liberate the devotee from all his previous and present sins and evil deeds committed. According to one legend, Lord Shiva is believed to have drunk the Halahala poison during Pradosham. This poison was mixed with the Ocean of Milk (Samudra Manthan). 

Another myth relates the importance of observing this vrat with the divine couple, Lord Shiva and Parvati. On the Trayodashi day during the evening twilight, the couple is said to be in a propitious and favorable mood. Hence, all prayers and grants demanded by a sincere and loyal devotee are easily fulfilled. Additionally, Bael or Bilva leaves are offered to the Lord during this twilight period as it is regarded to be very fortunate. Hence, all stern Shiva devotees observe both the fasts that occur on two Pradosha days in a month. Such devotees consume only water during their fast and break their fast by eating Prasad after the evening prayers only. 

Furthermore, they eat cooked food only from the next morning. Some devotees follow another method for fasting during Pradhosham Vratam. These eat fruits while observing the vrat and resume with eating cooked food on the same day after the evening prayers. Therefore, the strictness followed during the Pradosha fasting totally relies on the devotee. Nonetheless, there are devotees who do not observe a vrat on this day but offer prayers and worship Shiva either at home or in temples.

Kali Chaudas or Narak Chaturdashi Puja Procedure and Story

Narak Chaturdashi is a Hindu festival that is celebrated a day prior to Diwali, i.e. on Choti Diwali. It celebrates Lord Krishna’s victory over demon Narakasura. This festival is also known as Kali Chaudas or Roop Chaudas.





In some Indian regions and cultures, it is believed that it was Goddess Kali who killed the Rakshasa Narakasura. Thus it is celebrated as Kali Chaudas.

The Story of Kali Chaudas

Once there was a demon named Narakasur who was the son of Bhumi Mata (Mother Earth). Due to his several superhuman powers, he grew arrogant and troubled all the three worlds. The helpless gods sought the help of Lord Krishna. Sri Krishna ascended the divine vehicle Garuda along with his wife Satyabhama and reached the fort of Narakasur. He destroyed the demon Mura who was guarding the fort. Later Satyabhama killed Narakasur since he had the boon that he could only be killed by a woman. The day of Kali Chaudas marks the victory of good over evil. On this day it is believed that Ma Durga takes the form of Kalratri and vanquishes all the demons and evil forces.

Kali Chaudas Puja Procedure

Narak Chaturdashi is one of the prominent festivals that is celebrated on the 2nd day Of Diwali. The process of Narak Chaturdashi Pooja is as follows:-

Take wooden chowki and place a red cloth at the place of the Pooja.
Place the picture of Lord Ganesh & Goddess Laxmi on the Chowki.
Take a plate and put a red cloth first over it and then place a few silver coins on the same.
Now, take a big plate, make swastika in the middle, put 11 diyas around and place a Diya with 4 faces in the middle of the plate.
Now add sugar in the 11 diyas, or you can add makhana, kheel or murmura as well.
Next important step is to light the 4 faced Diya first and then light other 11 diyas.
Now take roli and place tilak on Goddess Laxmi & Saraswati and Lord Ganesha with the combination of red colour and rice.
Now put a combination of roli and rice in all diyas and then perform Ganesh Laxmi Panchopchar Puja.
The next step is to light another diya and put it in the front of Goddess Laxmi’s picture.
Light agarbatti & dhoop and place flowers & sweets in front of the Goddess Laxmi’s picture.
Now barring the 7 diyas and one main 4 faced diya, take rest of the diyas and place them on the main entrance of the house.
Recite Laxmi Mantra “Shreem Swaha” for bare minimum 108 times and thank Lord Ganesh & Goddess Laxmi for their blessings.
