Shani Jayanti 2024

As per the north Indian Purnima calendar, Shani Jayanti 2024 is conducted on Amavasya tithi during the Jyestha month. And according to the South Indian calendar, Shani Jayanti is observed in Vaishaka month on Amavasya tithi. These months differ in both types of calendars and Shani Jayanti is observed on the same day. 

On the day of Shani Jayanti, vat savitri vray is also observed by married women and unmarried girls during jyestha Amavasya in most of the north Indian states. Some devotees keep fasting or upvas on Shani Jayanti to please Lord Shani and devotees also visit the Shani temples to get the blessings of Lord Shani. 

It is also said that Lord Shani is the God of justice who always does fair justice to his devotees. If devotees are blessed by Lord Shani they will get good fortune and good luck. But if some people are not blessed by Lord Shani, they will have to tolerate the difficulties and troubles even after doing hard work in their life. 

To worship and please Lord Shani, you can organize havan, pooja, and yagya on the day of Shani Jayanti. The pandit performs the two most important ceremonies during Shani Jayanti Shani tailabhishekam and Shani Shanti puja. 

The reason to perform these ceremonies is to reduce the effects of Shani dosha, which means sade sati if someone is going through these in his horoscope. The other names of Shani jayanti 2024 are Shanishchara jayanti and Sani jayanti.

Story Of Celebrating Shani Jayanti 2024

Lord Shani Dev was born at that time when Devi Chaya was worshipping and meditating with Lord Shiva in severe penance, that is why he was born dark. Lord Surya used to belittle Chaaya because he doubted her purity due to Lord Shani’s dark skin.

According to legend, Lord Shani once went furious at Lord Surya’s taunts and cast a scorching glare onto him, causing him to burn and change the colour of his skin to black. Lord Shiva then treated Lord Surya and revealed the truth about Chaaya and Lord Shani’s conception. Lord Shiva also gave Lord Shani tremendous power and authority to punish people for their wrongdoing and evil activities.
