Durlabh Sanyog- Shani Amavas and Surya Grahan- 10 June 2021

About Shanideva and his birth-

Shani deva is the god of justice. He delivers the justice to our karmas. He is also called Karma-phal data. We are fearful from Shani deva because he never ignores our bad karmas. He is the son of Lord Surya, born from Chhaya, the wife of Sun god, the shadow of his wife Sanjna or Sangya. So he is also called Chhayaputra.

The day of Jyeshtha Amavas is the day dedicated to Lord Shani as day of his birth. There was a solar eclipse on the day of Shanideva birth too. This is a rare combination occurring on 10th june 2021. So it is considered very auspicious for worship of Shani deva and praying for forgiveness for our bad karmas. He is dark complexioned because his mother Chhaya did severe Penance of Lord Shiv during pregnancy. Therefore, Lord Shani is also a great devotee of Lord Shiva. Crow is his vahana. He holds Trishool, bow and arrow in three of his hands and blesses the devotees by his one hand.

Name Shani means ‘gold’, while the name Shanaishchara means who walks slowly, as he takes approx. 29 years to complete circle around Sun, which the highest time taken among all navgrahas.

Why to worship on Shani Amavas?

  1. For getting rid of sufferings from Shani dasha, antardasha, shani dosha, Shani Sadesati and Dhaiyya.

Shani Dosha occurs when the Shani or Saturn, which is a malefic planet is placed in the shubh bhavas in one’s natal chart, or Surya, Chandra or Mangala is placed in 10th or 11th houses in the horoscope.

People who are born with Chandra in Dhanu, Makara or Kumbha, presently their sadesati is running. While people born with their Chandra in Mithuna rashi or Tula Rashi, presently have their dhaiyya running.

2. This day is marked for Pitri Devas worship also and removes Pitri Dosha.

3. Shanideva is significator of profession (karma). Worshipping on this day helps one to come out of financial problems and debts and results in career development and business improvement.

4. He is badhakesh (planet of obstacles) for Mesha (Aries) and Vrisha (Taurus) signs, so whichever area of life in your chart is controlled by Mesha and Vrisha rashis, Shani will put obstacles in that area of life. To removes these obstacles, one should worship Shanideva on this day.

5. Lord Sun never liked him and used to always neglect him. Because Shanideva was born with dark complexion and the day Lord Shani was born (Amavas), his father Lord Surya was eclipsed for the first time. So once when Lord Surya insulted Shanideva, he got furious. He casted cruel gaze on Surya. His mere gaze burnt Surya to black complexion. At that time, Lord Shiva healed Surya. Shanideva’s drishti is well known to cause misery. His mere seeing the baby Ganesha, got Ganesha beheaded. Which later was revived by Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu as per the story. So worshipping lord Shiva on this day, protects and heals one from Shani drishti effects.

6. Shanideva protects from evil eye, black magic and psychic attacks.

7. Devotees get rid of diseases and any threat to longivity. Because Shanideva is Ayush Karaka and significator of three trik bhavas 6th, 8th and 12th houses in horoscope. Therefore, protecting from rhin, rog, shatru (debts, diseases, enemies).

8. If anybody has been cheated or being treated badly by someone, he should pray to lord Shani for the Justice.
