SIGNIFICANCE OF PRADOSHA KALA PUJA
As the name suggests, Pradosha has two meanings. The first literally means removal of sins and secondly, it’s the dusk time more commonly known as the Godhuli, a time of about 3hours. This time is divided into 90 minutes before the sunset and 90 minutes after the sunset which is known as the Pradosh Kaalam. By observing fasting and meditation with full devotion and dedication, all the demands are fulfilled by Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati. According to Shiva Purana, it is believed that during the Pradosh Kaal Lord Shiva with Ma Parvati perform a Holy Dance on Mount Kailash. Offering puja during this time gives an opportunity to eliminate all the negative Karma and helps us to fulfil all desires.
