20 August 2015 is Supodan Varna Shashthi (Supaudan Shiva Poojan). It is observed on Sashti in bright half in Shravan month.
Supoudana Varna Shashti is observed on the following day of Nag Panchami. Supodan Vrata is dedicated to worship Lord Shiva.
During the Supoudan Puja, Lord Shiva puja is performed with Shodashopachars (16 types of pujas and rituals) and Ashtottharas. After the puja is done, pulses and rice are offered to Lord Shiva.
