Pradosham

Pradosham is a significant day to worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. It falls on the the 13th day (Trayodasi) of lunar (moon) cycle and hence falls two times in a month, once in the waxing period and once in the waning period.

Pradhosha time is especially meant for praying Lord Shiva. It is believed that praying during that time to Lord Shiva with all sincerity will free us from out sins and gives moksha finally (hence the name Pradhosha).

Since Monday is dedicated to Shiva, the Pradosha falling on Monday is referred as Soma Pradosham and is considered highly auspicious. Pradosha falling on Saturday during the waning phase of moon is also auspicious. It is believed that all the Devas & Gods are assembled in the Shiva temples during Pradosham time. Further, the first pradosham was on a Saturday & hence "Sani Pradosham" is even more auspicious

A very powerful mantra of Lord Shiva is the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and its meaning

Om Tryamlakam Yajamahe
Sugandhim Pustivardhanam
Urva rukamiva Bandhanan
Mrtyor muksheeya Ma amritat

Om. We worship The Three-Eyed Lord Shiva who is fragrant and who increasingly nourishes the devotees.

By worshipping him may we be liberated from death for the sake of immortality just as the ripe cucumber easily separates itself from the binding stalk.
