Shani Mantra


Shani is one of the Navagrahas (the nine primary celestial beings in Hindu astrology) of Jyotisha (Hindu Astrology). Shani is embodied in the planet Saturn and is the Lord of Saturday. The mantra meaning is 'Oh Shani, I bow to thee'.

In Hindu Mythology, Shani is a Deva (male god) and son of Surya. He is the elder brother of Yama, the Hindu god of death, who in some scriptures corresponds to the deliverance of justice.

Shani is believed to gives us the results of our deeds during our lifetime through appropriate punishments and rewards whereas Yama delivers the results of one's deeds after death.

It is said that when Shani opened his eyes as a baby for the very first time, the sun went into an eclipse, which clearly denotes the impact of Shani on astrological charts.

He is known as the greatest teacher and well wisher for the righteous as well the greatest punisher for those who follow the path of evil, betrayal, backstabbing and unjust revenge.

Shani is also known as the lord of masses and his blessings are thus considered very important in an individual's horoscope for bestowing him with mass following and popularity.

Shani is depicted dark in colour, clothed in black; holding a sword, arrows and two daggers and mounted on a crow, his vahana (vehicle). As protector of property, Shani is able to repress the thieving tendencies of birds.

The period of Shani's punishments is referred to as Shani Dasha. The term is used to describe periods in our life when nothing seems to go right. It is said that worship of Shani will save one from some or all of these miseries.
