Shani Puja (शनि पूजा)
Shani Puja is done to appease planet Saturn. Grah Shanti Shani Pooja (Worship of Saturn) is sought for mental peace and to get rid of various diseases. Saturn is regarded as an emaciated God with long physique, big teeth and tawny eyes. It is believed that Shani can make a person, a king or a beggar according to the native's deeds (karmas).
Significance of Shani:
Shani (Saturn) is an indicator of longevity, misery, sorrow, old age and death, discipline, restriction, responsibility, delays, ambition, leadership and authority, humility, integrity, wisdom born of experience. Saturn is regarded as a planet of darkness which rules over the dark side of human nature, such as the conscience (awareness of right and wrong). Saturn is regarded to be both a giver as well as destroyer. A person who sincerely prays to Shani is blessed not only with removal of the problems and worries, but a life that one desires.
Shani Puja is done on Saturday or Shanivar. The bhakt should worship a murti of Sani Bhagavan made of iron. If murti is not available, offer prayer in mind – or by meditating on a painting or picture of Shani.
