Pradosh Vrat: Significance

Pradosh Vrat is observed to honour and commemorate Lord Shiva and the holy day when the lord himself consumed poison during Samudra Manthan to save the people and earth and all its creations. During Samudra Manthan when the devas and asuras churned the ocean to look for the Amrit, the first thing that came out of the ocean was Halahala or poison.

The day, when Lord Shiva drank the poison, began to be known as the day of Pradosh.

Pradosh Vrat has great importance in Hinduism. On this day devotees observe fast with a pure heart and worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is believed that all the wishes of those who keep Pradosh Vrat for the whole day are fulfilled.
