What is Shani graha?
Shani graham or Saturn planet is one of the nine most important celestial beings in Jyotisa or Hindu astrology. Shanidev is the ruling lord of Saturday, and hence the name Shanivaar, the hindi name for Saturday.
The word Shani is derived from Sanskrit verse shanaye kramati sa:, which means “one who moves very slowly”; and science also acknowledges, that Saturn planet takes 30 years to complete one rotation around the earth.
The term Sade Sati means the seven and a half year long period of Shani planet. People fear the name of sade sati in India. This period starts for a person when Saturn planet enters the zodiac sign, which falls immediately before the zodiac sign of moon (janam-rashi), for that person.
One school of astrology believed that this time is not very favourable for the individual, and he might have to undergo many troubles during this time.
But another school of astrology does not believe that and claims that this period might be challenging, but it is not as damaging also. On the other hand, for some people it may prove to be favourable, bringing a lot of success.
What is Shani Amavasya?
All hindu people, usually know this term amavasya. Amavasya means the no moon day, and that amavasya which falls on a Saturday, is called Shani amavasya. In Hinduism, the amavasya or no moon day is considered as an inauspicious day, and is the darkest day of the month. In similar line, Shani amavasya is also considered inauspicious, and people fear from Shani graham (the Shani planet). Three Shani amavasya fall in year 2010. Two of them have already past, one being on 13th February and the other on 12th July. The third and last Shani amavasya for the year 2010 is falling on 6th of November.
Most of the people have an impression that Shani graham always brings inauspiciousness. But this is a very big myth, says all the renowned astrologers. Shani dev is very happy, if he is worshipped with proper rules and regulations. Moreover, it should be understood, that Shani Dev gives us the results for our own deeds done during the life time; it would be punishment or reward would depend on our own deeds.
Worshipping Shani Dev:
People believing in astrology do several remedial poojas for Shani shanti pooja. People who are suffering from Kaal Sarp Dosa or Pitra Dosa do special worships to get the favour of Shani dev.
Especially on the day of Shani Amavasya, people collect in thousands, in the temples having Navagrahas to performing abhisheka to Shani Dev.
Shani Amavaysa is considered as a perfect day to offer oblations to one deceased forefathers.
There exist many theories describing the good and ill effects of Shani on one’s horoscope. Experts suggest that praying to Lord Hanuman is the best way to escape the ill effects. There is a legend that Lord Hanuman subdued Shani Dev, hence praying to Lord Hanuman can protect you from ill-effects of the Shani.
On coming shani amavasya on the 6th of November, there is a grand consecration (abhishek), and shani peeda shanti yagya (sacrifice meant for pacifying shanidev’s influence) in the most famous navgraha temple in the village of Khargon.
