Sri Shiva Pradosha Stotram


Sri Shiva Pradosha  Stotram

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Pradosha worship is done to Shiva   in the dusk of The Thrayodashi day  (The  13th  day  of both the Lunar  foretnights, It seems the devas worshipped Lord Shiva on this day at this time when Lord Shiva swallowed the Halahala  poison spit by the king of serpents  which was used as a rope to churn the  milky ocean and saved them. The Devas  then chanted  a prayer and praised him. It seems Lord Shiva   who was greatly pleased danced at this time in between the horns of his Vahana Nandi. It is believed that  any one worshipping Lord Shiva during Pradosham would be specially blessed  by him  and  would be granted  treasures and freedom from fear of death.
    It is my habit  to search for Stotras  to translate daily. Today I happened to  get this stotram   and the divine coincidence is today is Pradosham. Please read  this stotram today evening  and on all Pradosham days and get the blessing  of Lord Shiva,)
