Chant these Shani Mantras on Saturdays

Most people dread the effects of Shani or Saturn in their natal chart. They think that it could turn their life upside down and do more harm than good. Those who believe in astrology would often hear the term "Saade Saati Shani". It refers to the effects of Shani for seven-and-a-half years!

Saturday or Shanivar is named after him. But is there a need to fear the presence of Shani? What can one do to seek his blessings?

But before that, know who Shani Dev is.


Who is Shani Dev?

According to some legends, Shani Dev is the son of the Sun God (Surya Dev) and Chhaya (shadow). He delivers justice and punishes the wrongdoers. In short, he rewards people based on their Karma. He doesn't spare anyone who does wrong in some way or the other. He is one among the nine heavenly bodies (addressed as Nav Grahas) in astrology. Each of the Graha has a specific influence on a person's life. And hence, the significance. 


How can one reduce the effects of Shani?

Devotees of Lord Hanuman visit temples on Saturdays to keep themselves protected from the effects of Shani. According to a legend, Shani Devta was once rescued by Hanuman. Hence, as a token of gratitude, he wouldn't influence Hanuman's devotees. But what else can a person do to have the least adverse impact of Shani Devta?

Chant these mantras with dedication to please Shani Dev but remember one thing - only sincere devotion and faith deliver results. Hence, do things voluntarily and firmly believe that your efforts will bear fruits.
