Shani Jayanti 2018

A TO Z INDIA - - Inside -

Shani Jayanti is marked as birth an­niver­sary of Lord Shani. Shani Jayanti is also known as Shani Amavasya. Lord Shani is son of Lord Suryadev and rules planet Saturn and week­day Satur­day.

Shani Jayanti is ob­served on Amavasya Tithi dur­ing Jyeshtha month ac­cord­ing to North In­dian Purn­i­mant cal­en­dar. Ac­cord­ing to South In­dian Amavasyant cal­en­dar Shani Jayanti falls on Amavasya Tithi dur­ing Vaishakha month. It is name of Lu­nar month which dif­fers and in both type of cal­en­dars Shani Jayanti falls on the same day.

Shani Jayanti co­in­cides with Vat Sav­itri Vrat which is ob­served dur­ing Jyeshtha Amavasya in most North In­dian states. On Shani Jayanti devo­tees keep fast or Up­vaas to pro­pi­ti­ate Lord Shani and visit Shani tem­ples to seek bless­ing of Lord Shani. It is be­lieved that Lord Shani be­lieves in fair jus­tice and if ap­peased blesses His devo­tee with good luck and for­tune. Peo­ple, who don’t have bless­ing of Lord Shani, toil for years with­out get­ting any re­ward for their hard work in life.

Shani Jayanti is very ap­pro­pri­ate day to per­form Hawan, Ho­mam and Yagya to ap­pease Lord Shani. Shani Tail­ab­hishekam and Shani Shanti Puja are the most im­por­tant cer­e­monies per­formed dur­ing Shani Jayanti. Above cer­e­monies are per­formed to lessen the ef­fect of Shani Dosha, which is pop­u­larly known as Sade Sati, in the Horo­scope.

Shani Jayanti is also known as Shan­ishchara Jayanti and Sani Jayan­thi.
