Shani Dosh Nivaran Puja: Myths and Stories 

Shani dosh nivaran puja is a remedy for those who are suffering from the maha Dasha of Saturn (Shani) planet. Among the planets, Saturn is the cruelest planet as this is the justice in the planetary systems. Vedic astrology says that Saturn is the symbol of justice, discipline, and effort. 

A helpful Saturn will bring prosperity, gains, wealth, fame, etc but if this is situated at a specific position in your horoscope, this will lead to poverty, problems, misery, and also prison. A malefic Saturn can impact to – 

  • Misery and Poverty
  • Wrong decisions

During the transit or antardasha and mahadasha according to the horoscope, malefic Saturn effects will be more difficult. Many pandits are advised to wear blue sapphire (Neelam) to eliminate the bad effects of this planet but this is a tale. Such kinds of stones can not help completely and wearing them depends on some factors like planet position in Kundali and aspects of Saturn or connection with houses. 

What is Shani Dosh?

Shani dosh is the term to show the position of planet Saturn in an individual horoscope in that he is unfortunate. This has several forms. As Shani dev drives at a slow pace, so the negative effects of Shani take a long time. In this reference, Shani dhaiyya, Sade sathi is termed as Shani dosh. 

When Shani is situated in the Aries zodiac, this is believed to be unfavorable which is called Shani dosh. Beyond this, even if Saturn is in an enemy zodiac sign, this causes problems for the person. And if it is with Surya and not falling, Shani Dosh might be there under these circumstances.
