    The periods from 4.30pm to 6.00pm on Thirayodhasi falling on waning moon days and waxing moon days are called Piradosha periods.

    It is a holy and auspicious period in which Lord Shiva performed his divine dance standing in between the horns of Nandi and gave Darshan to Devas. Hence, this period is called virtuous period.

    Q12: What is the meaning of Kalpa?

    'Kalpa' is the measurement of a very long period of time calculated by our ancient sages. Like a minute, hour, day, month or year, Kalpa denotes a very long period of time. We try to explain it below:

    According to human calculation, 430 crore human years are equal to Lord Brahma's one day (12 hours). If we add another 430 crore years, it adds up to make one day and one night (24 hours).

    Thirty Brahma days give one Brahma month and 12 Brahma months give one Brahma year.A period of 100 such Brahma years are called one Kalpa.

    Thus one KALPA is equal to 430,00,00,000 2 30 12 100 human years.
