When to observe shivrAtri ?

Shivratri varatam is observed in the night of the kR^iShNa paxa chaturdashi day (fourteenth moon day in its darkening phase - one day before New moon day).

The following dates are given as per Indian Standard Time (IST). If you are living in India (or the same time zone) the date given in the left of this table is applicable. If you are living in any other time zone you might have to calculate for which date the above mentioned two conditions satisfy (chaturdashi & night) for your local time to observe this vratam. For this convenience the time for which the chaturdashi titi is present is given by the side (in IST). namaH shivAya
