Planet Shani is the son of Lord Sun. Shani is known as the most dreaded planet and a stern teacher. It is believed that Shani can make a person either a king or a beggar according to its placement in horoscope. Shani plays an important role in everyone’s life both in failures and successes.
If Shani is well placed in anyone’s horoscope then that person achieves good health, success in career, healthy and harmonious domestic life.
And if Shani’s placement is bad then it destroys consciousness, builds negativity, creates health issues, makes married life unsuccessful and it creates hurdles for any achievement and growth both in personal and professional level.
The person who has malefic Shani in horoscope faces troubles and difficulties for the entire life. In this circumstance Shani Puja is highly recommended to minimize its ill influences and to strengthen the positive sides for bringing fortune and success in life.
Puja procedures are: Avahaan mantra, Sankalp Puja, Prayers of all Gods and Goddesses, Navagrah mantra chanting, Lord Shiv and Hanuman Puja, Hanuman Chalisa Japa, Shani Abhishek, Shani Chalisa Japa, Shani Mantra chanting for 23000 times, oil offering and other offerings. And the Homa requires Cow ghee, sugar, honey, sweets, Sandalwood, Navagrah Samidha and the final ritual is Purnahuti and prasad distribution.
