    Brief about Sani Pradosham:

    Pradosham is an auspicious 3-hour period, 1.5 hours before and after the sunset, and is observed bi-monthly on the 13th day of every fortnight. When a Pradosham falls on a Saturday, it is called as Sani Pradosham.

    Significance of Sani Pradosham:

    Saturday is the day dedicated to Lord Shani (Planet Saturn). He is often related to karma and troubles based on his position in your birth chart. Everyone fears him for the adverse effects he could bring to our lives. To appease the Lord and avoid such ill effects, people usually keep fasting for Lord Shani on Saturdays. When a Pradosham falls on a Saturday, worshiping both Lord Shiva and Shani on that day adds more divinity.

    Ideal Time of performing the Pooja on this day:

    The ideal time for performing the Pooja is the Pradosham time window, 1.5 hours before and 1.5 hours after sunset.

    How are our sins get resolved by doing worship on this day?

    Lord Shiva is the deity of Shani or Saturn. Shiva is the chief of transformation and destruction, while Shani is the Lord of justice. Shani would destroy the fame, credentials of a person obtained through false ways, and restore honesty and faith in a person, which shall transform them into a better person. This transformation is the ultimate way to reach Lord Shiva.

    Benefits of Observing Sani Pradosham Vrat:

    Observing Vrat (fasting) on Sani Pradosham for Lord Shiva and Shani can bestow you with the following blessings:

    This day is considered ideal for the worship of Lord Shiva and Nandi (Bull).
    Lord Saturn, the planet of Karma rules Saturday, and worshiping him and offering your prayers to Lord Shiva on a Sani Pradosham is believed to resolve your sins and karmic effects.
