Shani-Deva Lord Shani Deva

Shani dasha or period is inevitable in every one’s life.Legend goes that even devas are not spared by shani [only exceptions being clever Ganapathy and powerful Anjaneya]

So if you or any of your relatives/friends are going through this difficult period [ of 7.5 years or sade sathi] , then use the following proven rituals to reduce the adverse impacts and lead a peaceful life:

1.  Shani Mantra

Please make it a point to recite this short shani mantra for 108 times every day.If not having time, atleast do 8 times daily to tide through this testing period in life.

Neelanjana Samabhasam                                                                          Raviputhram Yamagrajam                                                                                Chaya Marthanda Sambhootham                                                                  Tham Namamy Shanaishyaram.

2. Hanuman Chalisa

Hanuman is supposed to be “Chiran jeevi” or the one with infinite life on earth.While he was on his way to Lanka to find Seetha Devi , he has seen “Navagrahas” being captured and tied together by Ravana.Navagrahas knew that only Anjaneya has the power to release them from the clutches of  evil king Ravana.They worshipped Hanuman and requested him to free them from lanka.Hanuman immediately realised the presence of Shani bhagavan amongst the Navagrahas and asked him “If i release you , you will look at me and i will be under your spell for 7.5 years”.For this Shani replied that he will not do that and even spare those who worship Anjaneya from the ill effects of shani dasha.So recite “Hanuman Chalisa” on Tuesday,Thursday&Saturday.If not possible on all 3 days atleast on Tuesday.Visit Hanuman temple on every Saturday during your Shani Dasha period.

3. Mrityunjaya Mantra

If your Shani Dhasha effect is very severe (which can be known from your “Janma Kundali” or ” Horoscope ” ) then to protect you from the fear of untimely accidents / deceases recite “Mrityunjaya Mantra” atleast once before starting your day:

Om Thryambakam Yajamahe                                                                 Sugandhim PushtiVardhanam                                                                         Urvarukamiva Bandhanath                                                                             Mrithyor Mooshiyamamrith.

4. Navagraha Mantra

Chanting of  “Eka sloka Navagraha Stotram” (Short mantra for all 9 grahas) is also good to ward off adverse effects of  grahas which are not in a favourable position in your horoscope.Go to my previous post for more details- click here.

5. Donation ( Daanam)

During Shani dasha period try to do donation of  the following at a temple or to poor people:

Black cloth, Gingely Oil,Blanket,Iron Articles,Black Cow,Buffallo,Black Gram (Urudh Dal)

Provide  “Anna Danam” (free food) on Saturdays to Orphanage or Beggars.

6. Shani Temple Darshan

Visiting Navagraha temple and doing shani pooja on Saturday is one of the most commonly suggested remedy during Shani Dasha.If possible visit the following famous and powerful shani temples :

Shani Shingnapur ( in Maharashtra for North India)                                 Sabarimala Ayyappa Temple ( in Kerala for South India )

7. Shiva Bhajan

Nothing is complete with out the prayer for Lord Shiva.Shiva when pleased through prayers can protect you from Graha Dosha.Read my post on Lord Shiva here.

8. More Remedies

a) Put an piece of iron or iron coin into flowing water (River / Sea) on     Saturday and prey.

b) Wear a Blue Sapphire (Indra Neelam) stone in a ring or as Jewellery in such a way that when you go out it  is exposed to sun light .

[Note : Do a trial by wearing this for 7 days.If you are experiencing adverse effects , remove it]

c) Wear a clean (non rusty) iron ring or Jewelery.

9) A Not-to-Do List

During  Shani Dasha you will be tempted to do many things which may look  harmless in the beginning, but with your bad Shani positioning it can become serious issues. So during this period try to avoid the following :

Being a witness in any legal agreements , Participating in  Adventure Sports (like Bungie Jumping , Water Rafting , F1 Car Race etc.) , Arguments at work place or during driving (Road rage), Non punctuality at work place, Carelessness , Travelling alone (especially at night time)

10. Business

During this period indulge / invest only in business or activities which will start giving returns after long term (7-8 years).Starting construction of a new house is also advised during this period.

Navagraha Ganapathy

Hindus all over the world follow birth charts based on NavaGrahas (9 planets).Modern science may not agree with this but also cannot prove against it too.It is said that the position of these 9 planets at the time of birth , determines the characteristics and fate of a person’s life.It may be hard to digest in the millennium years, but look at this possibility :

We all know that gravitational force exists.We also are aware of the low and high tides in the sea(Caused by the gravitational pull of moon on earth).Imagine the same invisible pull and push forces which exist between earth and the other planets.Ancient sagas found that these web of magnetic forces which navagrahas (9 planets) exerts on earth is significant enough to cause changes in the brain pattern of a newborn baby.Based on this effects, billions of permutations and combinations of the planetary positions were analysed and based on that the science of astrology came into existence.

To ward off the ill effects and improve the positive energy by favorable planetary positions you can chant the following sloka for Navagrahas :

Aarogyam pradadathuno Dinakara / Chandro yasho nirmalam

Bhoomim Bhoomisutha Sudhaamshu Thanaya / Prajyam Gurur gourava

Kavya komala Vagvila samathulam / Mandho mudam sarvada

Rahur bahu balam virodha shamanam / Kethur kulasonnayathim

After chanting this sloka for 1 0r 8 /16/64/108 times chant the following for 8 times :

Oam Navagrahaya Namaha

There is no harm in creating a positive electromagnetic force , which envelops you invisibly all the times.By chanting this mantra your negative effects due to bad “dasha” or planetary positions will be significantly reduced.Agree that fate/karma cannot be changed but definitly the ill effects can be diluted by devotion to god (Enegy beyond our definition).This mantra will help you to remove “grahadoshams” and serve as a quick fix for all of us with nil or little time to spare.
