As per Hindu Astrology, Shani Dev or Shani Maharaj is one of the feared planets. Out of the Nav Grahas, Shani Deva is the most dangerous and highly observed lord. Also popular as the God of Justice, Shani Dev is the portent of retribution and bad luck. He occupies the 7th position in the nine planets and hence, governs the world.
About Lord Shani and Shani Mantra Jaap
Shani, the origin of which is Sanaischara, in Sanskrit means slow mover. He is the son of Surya Dev and Chhaya, and the brother of the God of Death, Yama. As per the Hindu calendar, Shanivara or Saturday is dedicated to Lord Shani. It is believed that Lord Shani is Lord Vishnu’s incarnation who carries the responsibility for giving people the fruits as per their Karma in the present life.
According to Vedic astrology, the positions of the planets help in determining the future of any individual. And hence, if any individual is born under the Saturn planet or Shani, he/she is believed to be at higher risk of facing failures, accidents, health issues, and wealth issues. And to defend against such bad luck or evil, Hindus are recommended to perform the Shani Mantra Jaap on daily basis. This helps in reducing the impact of bad luck during the Sadasati phase which lasts for 7.5 years. Lord Shani takes nearly 2 to 2.5 years to pass through every zodiac sign and this phase is termed Dhaiya. And when any horoscope is tormented by Dhaiya or Lord Shani the individuals belonging to that horoscope experience issues like delays in marriage, promotions or having kids, disputes in families and professional life, unwanted struggles, etc. In some extreme conditions, they might also face death. And to escape from such adverse effects, the individuals need to recite the Shani mantras steadily.
