Pradosha Stotram
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:38:05 PM »
Today is Pradosham. The thirteenth day after full moon or new moon. On the evening Pradosha Siva is said to dance between
the horns of Nandi, the bull. There are abhishekams, alankarams and arti for both Siva Lingam and Nandi. The prodasham falling
on a Saturday is more auspicious. Today is one such Sani (Saturday) pradosham. The following is the Stotraam that is
normally chanted in the Siva temples at the time of evening pradosha archana and arti.

In Indian Context is the Pradosham time ( i.e daily pradosham time ) is it between 4.30 - 6 p.m ? Can someone clarify the same ?
