According to legend, Shani is a devotee of Lord Shiva. As mentioned in the "Navagraha Pidahara Sthothram" of "Brahmanda Purana", anybody who chants the following sthothra is relieved from all the ill effects of Shani.
Suryaputhro Deerghadeho Vishaalaakshah Shivapriyah |Mandachaarah Prasannathmaa peedam harathu me Shanih
||सूर्य पुत्रो दीर्घ देहो विशालाक्षः शिवप्रियः।मन्दचारः प्रसन्नात्मा पीडां हरतु मे शनिः ॥
The Shaneeswara Mantra In Tamil:
Sangadangal Theerpai Shanibhagavane
Mangalam Ponga Manam Vaitharul
VaiSacharavindri Saaga neriyilIcchagam
Vaazha Innarul Thaa Thaa
According to the Vedic astrology, in order to get protection against the bad effects of Saturn's transit, the following are the possible remedies during the important transits of Saturn - Kanta Sani (When Saturn transits through the eighth house from the natal moon sign), Sade-sati (when Saturn transits through the twelfth, first and second houses from the natal moon sign) -

  • Worship Mother Goddess Kali during Dark Moon
  • Worship Vishnu in the form of Lord Krishna and keep chanting 'Om Namo Narayanaya', 'Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare..'
  • Pray to Sree Hanumanji in His Supreme Cosmic Form, which is the Form in which He shook Shani Bhagavan off of His back and the form in which He received divine blessings and instructions from Surya, the Sun God.

A common mantra for drawing the support of Shani Bhagavan is: Om Sham Shanaischaryaye Namah.
The following is another mantra for propitiating Shani:
Neelaanjan samaabhaasam raviputram yamaagrajam,
Chaayaa-maartandam-sambhootam, Tam namaami Shanaishcharam.

Some devotees chant 'Om Sham Shanaischaryaye Namah' 108 times daily. Also, if reading vedic textures are practised then it is suggested to recite Saturn's shloka from Navagraha Sukta: 'Om Shanno Devirabhishtaya Aapo Bhavantu Peetaye Shanyorbhisravantumah Shanaishcharaaya Namah.'

  1. Perform thilabhishekam on sanitrayodasi, sanijayanthi (pushya masam bahula astami) and saniamavasya days.
  2. Donate black till to a Brahmin (1 kg 900 grams)
  3. Feeding till and jaggery mix to black cow (kapila govu) .
  4. Fasting on Saturdays (only liquids) 6 a.m to 6 p.m (sravana masam must)
  5. Feeding to crows (mornings)
  6. Feeding to physically disabled people.
  7. Navagraha pradakshinas(19 rounds)/walking, jogging.
  8. Visit famous sanitemples (once in 2 1/2 years) Mandapalli, Sanisingnapur, Tirunallar, Narsingole, Venkathala and Veerannapalem (parchur mandalam, prakasam district).
  9. Light two lamps in front of your main door after sunset every day with till oil.
  10. Recite dasaradha maharaja krutha sani sthothram.
  11. Jyestadevi, saneeshwara swamyvarla kalyanam (sravana purnimaday).
  12. Sanijapam 19000, with moolamantram, punarcharana, havanan, danam.
  13. Sanaichara vratham, homam on Saturdays in sravana masam.
  14. Sanaichara dheeksha: sravana sudda vidiya to sravana bahula sashti.
  15. Chanting: 'rama nama', Hanuman chalisa, Durga sthuthi.
  16. Prayers and devotion to Hanuman, Sri Durga Devi, Vinayaka.
  17. Offering curd rice mixed with cumin seeds to god and feeding them to crows.
  18. Feed an orphan child
  19. Feed fish to long hair ca
  20. One nice remedy is to please LORD SHANI DEVA. King Nala"s story is said to please LORD SATURN. "I WILL NOT TOUCH ANY ONE, WHO LISTENS TO THE STORY OF KING NALA AND DHAMAYANTHI," said Lord Saturn.

    Very interesting to read the rituals. Normally i don't like to follow any rituals because no one explains it properly. You ahve given us along list of things to do during the SHaneeswaran period. I read it couple of times. Some of them are really good for our health and society.
    Walking, jogging, fasting and feeding poor people are all good. Donate to orphans what a great idea. Our forefathers made us to do these kind of rituals to benefit the society.
    Tahnks again. Now I am slowly understanding the meaning of these rituals. God Bless!!!!!

    Dear coffeelover,
    i saw ur comment now only. The main point in any ritual is helping others in some form. if your consiousness feels right, that is the true worship.

    Dear Tamilarasi,
    As i said earlier in my posts, God expects our true love only. HE never let you down. Your daughter will have pleasant Shani period. Don't worry. God will definitely respond to your prayer.
