Sanaischara (shani)  ashtotharam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Sani  also called Sanaischara(slow moving-it is not saneeswara as he is not a god) or Mandha  is the son of Sun God and Chaya   Devi  (who was  the shadow of the wife of Sun God).  He is the brother of Yama , the God of death. During a step brotherly quarrel, Yama  broke a leg of Sani  which made  him move slowly.   As soon as Sani was born, Sun God became not visible   due to eclipse., He is supposed to a well wisher  , honest and one awarding very  great  punishment on those whom he does not like .He is supposed to be the Lord of the common people .He is supposed to be of very dark colour, wearing dark black cloth   armed with sword and arrows   and rides  on a crow.  He remains in a rasi for 30 montha (two and half years) . The period when he is in  the 12thhouse, own house and the second house is  considered as  a very   bad period for all people. It is called Sade sathi in the north and Ezharai sani in the south. His occupying the 8th ouse   is extremely bad period in a persons life.Unable to tolerate   the suffering  some  people even turn mad. Its remaining in tenth house   , fourth house . ninth house    are also bad .Our Puranas  tell several stories of  how  Sani troubled people . As very large number of extremely trouble some  periods are due to Sani and so  he   is worshipped in several temples. THirunallar   in Tamil Nadu  , SAni Singanapur in Mahasrashtra , SAni temple in deonar , Titwala  , Kuchanoor  , Madira   are all famous.  Lighting Gingelly lamp before him on Saturdays  , offering him Gingelly rice , Giving  a  full copper pot  of Gingely oil  to a Brahmin , Chanting  several prayers   etc  are  some methods to get rid  of problem due to Saturn.He also would get pleased if we worship  , Hanuman, Lord Ayyappa or  Venkidachalapathy of Thirupathi.)
