Shani Jayanti – A Day of Dosha Removal, Luck & Fortune

Shani Amavasya – Auspicious Day of the Lord Shanidev

Shani Jayanti according to the Hindu calendar is celebrated on Vaishakh Vadya Chaturdasi Amavasya. Lord Shani – Son of Surya and Chhaya, is also known as ‘Shanishwara‘ (The Supreme).

Shani Jayanthi 2024 is on June 06th, Thursday.

As per Hindu Mythology, Shani Jayanti marks the birthday of Lord Shani. Saturn (Shani) is one of the nine planets of the solar system. It exerts great influence on an individual according to their horoscope. The negative effects of Shani can be difficult to sustain. Its influence is higher when a person is going through the period of Shani Sade Sati, Shani Dhaiya, Mahadasha, or Shani Antardasha.

Shani Jayanti holds special significance for individuals whose horoscopes are inflicted by Shani Graha. It is carried out to protect the individuals from various dosha present in their horoscope due to the positioning of Shani.

In Sanskrit ‘Shanishwara’ comes from ‘Shanishchara’ which means ‘slow mover’. Lord Shani is the most sought out among nine Graha or planets. Shani Jayanti coincides with Savitri Vrat which is also observed during Jyeshtha Amavasya. A prayer to Lord Shani will mitigate the hardships one will have to face during bad times.

On Shani, Jayanti devotees keep fast or Upvaas to propitiate Lord Shani and visit Shani dev’s temples to seek the blessing of Lord Shani.

Shani Jayanti is a very appropriate day to perform Hawan, Homam, and Yagya to appease Lord Shani. Shani Tailabhishekam (oil bathing of Shani deva) and Shani Shanti Puja are the most important ceremonies performed during Shani Jayanti.

The above ceremonies are performed to lessen the effect of Shani Dosha, which is popularly known as Sade Sati, in one’s Kundali (birth horoscope).
