Ponnaiah Lalithakala Academy - "Pradoshotsava" A Dance and Music Festival - Applications - October 2017

"Pradoshotsava"
A Dance and Music Festival.
Venue : Padmini Rao Paramparaa Kalakshetra
“Pradosha” is a bimonthly occasion on the thirteenth day of every fortnight in Hindu calendar. It is closely connected with the worship of Hindu god Shiva. The auspicious 3 hour period, 1.5 hours before and after the sunset is one of the optimum time for worship of Lord Shiva. The fast or vow performed during the period is called "Pradosha vrata". During pradosha, Nandi (the sacred bull of Shiva) in all the Shiva temples in South India is worshipped.

The Legend goes this way, The devas, celestial deities approached Shiva in the most propitious moments of Pradosha to get relief from asuras - Danavas and Daityas. They ran around Kailasha, Siva's abode hitherto on a Triyodashi evening and was aided by Nandi, Shiva's sacred bull. Shiva aided them in killing the asuras - the practise of worshipping Shiva on Traiyodashi along with Nandi emerged and continues in Shiva temples. "Pradosha vrata" (vow) is performed on Pradosha with sacred ritual steps following the tradition.

On this day every fortnight, PLA will organize a Dance and Music Festival, Starting from January 2018.
