“Pradosham is a day when Shiva himself liberates people from bad karma. It is the day that he took upon himself the karma, which is symbolized through his taking the poison himself. The poison is the karma of people, so people will lead a karma free life which is disease-free and problem-free life. This particular one is called Maha Pradosham or the great Pradosham because it happens on a Saturday. And Saturday is considered very auspicious for Shiva.”
~ Dr. Pillai
The upcoming August month is going to bring you an uncommon opportunity to clear karma, improve your inner strength, transform, and recreate your life. This month on Aug. 30th, we have Surya (Sun) Pradosham powertime, which can dissolve your bad karma and help improve your inner strength, and establish your identity.
Significance & Story of Pradosham
One of the greatest findings of the ancient Vedic seers is that during a 13th Moon, you can dissolve bad karma by observing Pradosham and praying to Shiva. The 13th Moon that falls on a Saturday is called Sani (Saturn) Pradosham, and it is special because, as per the scriptures, the original Pradosham occurred on a Saturday.
Saturn is the planet of karma and transformation. Saturn also signifies our career and health. Invoking Shiva, the overlord of Saturn, through Pradosham ceremonies can help tap into the positive traits of Saturn, which is hardworking, persevering, and being well-organized to shine in your career/profession. The blessings of Shiva on Sani Pradosham can clear karma and open up new avenues in your career/profession to recreate and transform your life.
Siddhas say that you can live your life purpose only when your karma has been removed. When that happens, an intense blossoming occurs, and both the material and spiritual worlds can open up for you. Participating in Pradosham ceremonies provide a great opportunity to build a road to prosperity and true happiness.
Vedic astrology says that the Sun is your soul and your inner strength. Connecting with the karma cleansing energy of Shiva, who is the overlord of the Sun, can help tap into the energies of Surya, or Sun, Pradosham to give a boost to your inner strength and break free from the karmic limitations dimming your brilliance. The blessings of Shiva on Surya Pradosham day can help you become ambitious, boost your creative ability, and nurture your soul’s energy to manifest results.
Shiva, Parvati, and Skanda (Muruga) together are propitiated in the form of Somaskandar. This form of Shiva was meditated upon by Vishnu. Great saints explain that invoking this form of Shiva is experiencing Satchitanandam. The term Satchitanandam is the combination of three words Sat+Chit+Anandam. Sat means existence, represented by Shiva. Chit means power (Shakti), represented by the Goddess. When these two are together, one gets to experience joy, which is represented by their son, Skanda (Muruga). Thus, invoking this form of Shiva in the Fire Lab is believed to clear negativities and grant ultimate bliss, happiness, and progress in life
As per sacred texts, performing Abishekam to Shiva with 12 sacred offerings can bestow the following blessings:
As per temple legend, the Nandi present here saved Saint Thirumaaligai from an attack of the king’s men by growing to an enormous size and defending him. It is also believed that Parvati got relieved from the curse of being a cow after performing penance at this temple. Performing Milk Hydration ceremony here is believed to grant blessings of unity between couples, long and happy married life, and boon of progeny
As per Powerspot legend, the Navagraha (9 Planets) got relief from their curse here. According to Powerspot belief, performing Pooja to Surya (Sun God) is believed to protect you from adverse planetary effects, mitigate the adverse impact of Sun Dasa (major planetary period) and Bhukti (minor planetary period) and help attain all-around success

What Will I Receive?
You will receive the sacred grey ash powder from the homa, which will be blessed in the rituals. Keep this on your meditation altar and wear it on your forehead during meditation or at other times to expand the Divine blessings into your life.
Dr. Pillai explains this:
The ritual is the carbonization of thoughts. Carbon is our information bearing atoms. The carbon residue (ash) given out as Prasad is to be placed on the third eye area of the participants and carries the blessings of the archetypes invoked.
Please Note: The shipment of your Prasad starts from Chennai, Tamil Nadu a week after the entire set of rituals is performed. For international shipping, please allow 2 – 4 weeks for delivery.
