Shani Jayanti is an important day for Hinduism. Shani Jayanti is celebrated on the new moon day of the Jyeshta month of the Hindu calendar. Shani is a Hindu god who is known as the god of justice. Shani Dev Lord Surya is one of the three children - Yama, Yamuna and Shani.
Shani Dev was born from the womb of Chhaya, the wife of Lord Surya. Shani Dev was a devotee of Lord Shiva and it was Lord Shiva who gave him a boon that you will have the best place among the nine planets. Human beings or even gods will be afraid of your name.
Shani Dev is the most attention-grabbing deity due to his influences. They are friends as well as enemies. If they are considered to be antidote, inauspicious and painful, then they are also the provider of salvation. Those who behave inappropriately punish them and those who engage in good deeds, bless them with prosperity.
The justice of Shani Dev is famous all over the world. Shani Dev is known by many names like Mandagami, Surchaputra and Shanishwar. It is said that Shani Dev had punished King Harishchandra a lot. Because King Harishchandra was proud of giving his charity. Due to which King Harishchandra had to be sold in the married market and had to work as a watchman in the crematorium. King Nal and Damayanti also had to wander from place to place as a punishment for their sins due to the influence of Shani.
According to astrologers, it is considered necessary to worship Shani Dev on the day of Shani Jayanti, for those people who are going on Shani's half-century. It is believed that by worshiping and donating on this day, Shani pacifies and removes the sufferings of the affected person.
