If there is anything that the knowledgeable of astrology fear most it is the Dasa or the period of Saturn. And no wonder, for even if Saturn is a benefic in one's horoscope, it does show some of its natural ill effects during the Dasa.
And if by chance it is a malefic in the horoscope then it could simply unbalance life and make one go through unimaginable and unforeseeable trials and tribulations during this nineteen year long period.
However it is not a lost case altogether if you are currently in the Dasa of Shani (Saturn period).
There are so many popular ways to make Saturn favourable. Many believe that there is no cure for it. Others resort to rituals through priests which could or could not work. Some believe that wearing iron rings or stones or giving away black cloth and mustard oil on Saturdays could negate the effect. Not that these methods are futile but the best way to counter the fury of Saturn is a Sadhana as prescribed by our Rishi.
Through these Sadhanas devised by the great Yogis, who were master astrologers as well, one could not just nullify Saturn's negative effect but also make it favourable so that it could benefic results in its Dasa. And know it that once one has appeased Saturn there there is no looking back for the person in terms of success and fame earned.
Saturn also rules over professionals like engineering, medicine, politics, police and army, explosives and industry. So any one related to these fields could also try Saturn Sadhana for more success.
Presented here is a wonderful Saturn Sadhana that has been tried with amazing results by Sadhaks over the ages. Lord Krishna himself made Arjun accomplish this Sadhana before the start of Mahabharat war and no wonder Arujun remained invincible in the battle.
Try this Sadhana on any Saturday. It has to be repeated on three consecutive Saturdays.
In the night of a Satuday after 10pm have a bath and wear black clothes. Sit in a black mat or blanket facing the South.
Cover a wooden seat with a black cloth and on it make a mound of black sesame seeds. On the mound place the Shani Yantra.
Then contemplate on the form of Lord Saturn chanting the following verse.
Om Shanno Deveerabhishtaya Aapo Bhavantu Peetaye Shanyorabhistrabhavantu Nah
After this make a mark of saffron on the Yantra and light a mustard oil lamp. Then pray to lord Saturn to free you of all obstacles, fears, problems, pains and afflictions. Then chant one round of Guru Mantra and pray to the Guru for success in the Sadhana.
Then with a Black Hakeek Rosary chant eleven rounds of the following Mantra.
Om Sham Shaneishcharaay Namah
Repeat this Sadhana on three consecutive Saturdays. Before Sadhana on each Saturday during the day give away black sesame seeds, black cloth, iron made objects and black lentils as gifts to a poor needy person.
After Sadhana drop the Sadhana articles in a river or pond. This is a very powerful and one of the best Sadhanas for appeasing Saturn and through it sure enough one could gain blessings and benefic effects of Saturday and achieve remarkable success even during the Dasa of the naturally malefic planet.
According to the science of astrology the nine planets determine the course of life for a human. There can be no doubt that heavenly bodies do have an effect on one's life and even modern science is accepting this fact today.
Among these nine planets two planets Rahu and Ketu are called shadow planets because they are not actual planets. This is why their existence can be very confusing for the common man.
But still their effect on life is definite. And what more they are natural malefics with very strong influence on the natal chart.
Together they also form very negative combination called Kaal Sarpa Yoga in which all other planets are placed between these two planets. The presence of such a combination can make one lead a very ordinary life even though one might be very talented and skilled.
The effect of Rahu can lead to obstruction in life. Where life could have been smooth it is left turbulent and uncertain.
But this does not mean that one should fear this planet. Many people believe that the negative effect of Rahu is very dangerous and it cannot be remedied. But this is not true. Through Sadhanas this negative planet can easily be controlled.
Rahu being malefic in one's natal chart or the negative influence of Rahu in one's life actually denotes lack of spiritual energy in life. This leads to a situation where one is constantly faced by difficulties, obstacles and problems which one is not able to overcome.
The effect of Rahu cannot be negated by worshipping it. The only way is to increase one's spiritual power.
The significance of soul or spiritual power in sun. It is by imbibing the power of the sun that Rahu's negative influence can be best neutralised.
The negative influence of the shadow planet can manifest in many forms - enemies, failure in life, loss of respect, poverty disease and tension.
All these can be removed from one's life through the following Sadhana which is based on Surya Vigyan (the science of tapping the energy of sun).
On a Sunday try this ritual every morning when the sun is rising. Have bath and wear clothes which are either red or white. No other colour must be chosen. Then sit facing East on a red mat.
Cover wooden seat with a red cloth and in a copper plate place theRahu Yantra. One need not light any incense or lamp for the Sadhana. All one needs to do is try the ritual with full devotion and concentration.
After this chant the following verse twenty one times.
