Shani Mantras – Solving The Shani Dosha Problem

Shani Mantras

Shani mantras play an important role in mitigating the effects of Shani dosha. Lord Shani or the God of planet Saturn has negative effects on one’s horoscope. Saturn is a malefic planet in Vedic astrology. However, only in some positions in some houses, Shani has a positive impact.

Lord Shani of the Saturn plays a pivotal role in everyone’s life in the form of Shani dosha.

Shani dosha occurs when the Saturn planet is placed in a bad position in one’s birth chart. Saturn may jointly be present with Mars, Rahu or Ketu, thus causing Shani dosha. This planet also takes the longest duration to go around the sun. Thus, it spends a lot of time dwelling in each zodiac’s house. Shani is present for about 7 and a half years in people’s lives. During this period (known as Saade Sati), Shani creates havoc in one’s life.

The consequences of Shani dosha can also cause delays or obstacles in major life events and work, financial problems, delay in marriage, family and relationship problems, health problems, lack of confidence and the like.

Chant the following Maha mantra to invoke the blessing s of Lord Shani. Reciting this mantra regularly will provide relief from Shani dosha.

However, there are also a number of ways by which Shani dosha can be remedied. This includes fasting, making donations, carrying out charitable activities, fasting and reciting certain powerful mantras regularly.
