Rudralife: Sunday Pradosh (September 3 2017)
Pradosh is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is observed twice in the lunar month as per the Hindu calendar. A fast is observed on Trayodashi (13th day of Krishna Paksha – Amavasya) and Shukla Paksha (Purnima). It is open to any age and any gender. This day is auspicious because it celebrates the togetherness of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. Some people worship Nataraja the Lord of the divine dance. A fast may be observed for 24 hours or from sunrise to sunset. Pradosh is observed in the twilight. When Pradosh falls on a Sunday it is called Ravivaar Pradosh. The Sun is known for its resplendence, radiance and life nurturing warmth. Sunday is dedicated to this radiant deity and the 12 Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Surya. Wearing a 12 Mukhi Rudraksha on a Sunday Pradosh in between 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and worshipping Lord Shiva is known to bring in tremendous blessings to the wearer. The 12 Mukhi Rudraksha is the seat of self-esteem and power. The texts state that the wearer of the 12 Mukhi Rudraksha releases stress, anger, health issues and any other negativity easily thereby moving on to become a very good administrator. The ruling deities of this Rudraksha are the 12 Adityas and Vishnu. Metaphysically it is used to treat illnesses of skin, heart, eyes, nose and blood pressure. Wearing this Rudraksha and following the Ravivaar Pradosh is known to bring in longevity and peace of mind.
Prayers and puja are observed during this time. The Shivling is worshipped with Bilva leaves, milk, curd, and ghee. Devotees also listen to Pradosh Katha. The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra, Laghu Rudram, Shiva Tandav Stotram or just a simple Shiva Mantra can be chanted during this time. Water from Kalash and sacred ash are given to devotees. Ancient scriptures have stated that a person who lights a single lamp while wearing a Rudraksha on this day will be tremendously rewarded and blessed.
