I came across an interesting reading in Sankshipt Shiva Puran today,

As per Shiva puran,

1) a person who performs worship or temple darshan of Lord Shiva and Parvati on a day which is with conjunct with Ardra Nakshatra, he will get benefited immensely. Particularly if its with Margeshwara masa yukta Ardra Nakshatra , the person is treated equals to Lord Kartikeyas bhakti.

2) a person who perform Puja /Homam /Japa which is related to Pranava mantra or “OM” on Chaturdasi yukta Ardra Nakshatra gets immense punya, if it is surya sankranthi yukta Ardra Nakshatra it gives koti gun phala for single chant of mantra.

Ardra Nakshatra is the sixth Nakshatra among the 27 Nakshatras.

For the benefits of reader please find below Ardra Nakshatra 2013 date and time based on traditional Hindu calendar /Panchangam. {as per Indian Standard Time (IST)}
