Get The Blessings of Lord Shani with Shani Gayatri Mantra. Shani Dev is the son of Sun God (Surya) and his wife Chhaya. Planet Saturn is an embodiment of Shani Dev, and Saturday is the specific day in the week associated with the lord.
Shani is the Lord of discipline and control. He shows us the truth and keeps us honest. As the slowest moving planet, Saturn’s tedious eye keeps track of every action that is performed. He admits no shortcuts and no easy ways out of difficult situations.
With Saturn’s blessing, the limitations of the mind and body are confronted and renovated by persistence and patience. For spiritual growth to occur, the body and mind must be prepared.
This preparation process happens on all levels of being and is not completed until Shani has transformed everything transient and illusory into inner strength founded in truth.
Shani is also known as Krura-lochan, – ‘the evil-eyed one’. It is believed that Shani’s gaze can spell disaster even to the most influential and powerful.
Ancient Indian myth and folklore are replete with stories depicting the negative influences of this planet on the subject of his attention.
Of various stories that are mentioned in Hindu mythology about how Lord Ganesh got an elephant's head, one is attributed to Shani.
He is the devotee of Lord Shiva was meditating in the Himalayas to be close to his Lord.
When Parvati, Shiva’s consort, gave birth to Ganesh, she distributed sweets to Shiva’s ganas, – the hosts. The goddess Parvati asked Shani to see and bless the child.
Shani kept his head down and sought forgiveness from seeing the child, pleading that his gaze is inauspicious.
Parvati, being the great Lord’s consort, took no notice of this and asked him to bless the newborn. As soon as Shani lifted his head and looked at the child, the newborn’s head got blown.
As a God, Saturn is black in color, short in stature, and lame because of injured legs. Shani is the son of Surya and Chhaya, the Shadow Goddess. Manu and Yama are his brothers.
Shani’s vehicle is a vulture. Shani is the ruler of our destinies and keeps an eye on our deeds and depending on our Karmas we will be rewarded or punished by Shani.
