      Dasaratha Shani Stotra


      Saturn enters the star constellation of Rohini once in every 30 years. This is one of the most dreaded transits of the kings and his kingdom. The scriptures say “Kings will die and kingdomes will fall when Shani enters Rohini”. Last time it entered Rohini on 22nd May 2001. On the night of 1st June 2001 the entire Royal family of Nepal was wiped out. It was followed by the death of the Indian Congress minister and Raja of Gwalior Sri Madhav Rao Scindia on 30th September 2001 in a plane crash. Then came the 9-11-2001 strike by Osama Bin Laden.


      It is said that during the reign of king Dasaratha when Shani was about to enter Rohini Nakshatra, king Dasaratha worshipped Shani and pleased with his prayers Saturn did not enter Rohini during the reign of king Dasharatha. Hence the Dasaratha Shani stotras are considered an excellent remedy for Saturn related troubles.


      The following is from Skanda Purana.


      Shani Shodasanama stotra


      Kona shanaischaro mandah chhayaa hridayanandanah
      Maargandaja sudhaasouri neelavastraan janadyutih
      Abrahmanah kroorakroora karmaatangi grahanaayakah
      Krishnodharmaanujah shantah shushkodara varapradah


      Apart from this reciting the following dashanama stotra of Shani by Dasharatha near a Pepal tree is also a highly recommended one.


      Shani Dasanaama Stotra
      Konastha pingalobabhruh
      Krishnoroudraantakoyamah
      Souri, shanaischaro mandah
      Pippaladishu sansthitah


      Dasaratha Shani Stotram


      Om. asya shree shanaishchara stotrasya
      dashratha rishi
      shanaish-charo-devata
      trishtup chandahah
      shanaish-chara preety-arthe jape viniyogah
      dasharatha uvacha


      Om. Sri Shani Stotra, Dasharatha is the Rishi (seer of the mantra). Shanaishchara is god (related to this hymn). Trishtup is metre. Enjoined is repetition (of this hymn) for the appeasement of Shanaishchara (Saturn).


      kono-antaka roudra-yama-tha babhruh

      nityam smrito yo harate cha peedam
      tasmai namah shree ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana (Saturn), who when regularly remembered as (the ten names listed in the first and second line of this verse) steals away the suffering (misfortune of the devotee).


      sura asurah kim purusha ragendra

      tasmai namah shree ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, by whose unfavourable position, gods, demons, celestial beings, celestial musicians, celestial masters of various wisdom-teachings and even celestial snakes succumb to sufferings.


      nara narendra pashavo mrigendra

      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, whose unfavourable position brings agony to laymen, emperors, common animals, huge animals, forest creatures, insects, flies and humming bees (irrespective of their status).

      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, whose unfavourable position brings about suffering to countries, citadels, forests, war-camps, houses and cities.


      tilairya-vair-masha gudanna danaih

      preenati mantrair-nijavasare cha
      tasmai namah shree ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, who is appeased by giving in charity things like sesame, paddy, black-gram, molasses, rice pudding, iron, blue cloth etc., and by chanting mantras on his own day (Saturday).


      prayaga-koole Yamuna tate cha
      sarasvati punya-jale guhayam
      yo yoginam dhyana-gatopi sookshmas
      tasmai namah shree ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, who manifests in subtle form before the yogis who meditate on him at any holy bank of prayag (confluence) of two rivers; Yamuna and Saraswati, or in a cave.


      anya-pradeshat swagriham pravishtas
      tadeeya-vare sa narah sukhe syat
      grihad gato yo na punah prayati
      tasmai namah sri ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, who bestows happiness to a person when He enters His own house (constellation); (though) when He leaves the house, does not return for a long time.


      srashta swayam-bhoor bhuvana trayasya
      trata hareesho harate pinakee
      ekas tridhah rig yajuh sama murtis
      tasmai namah sri ravi-nandanaya


      Prostrations to Sri Ravinandana, who is the creator of three worlds, who is the self-manifested being, who is Hari the protector and Pinakin (Siva, bearer of the three pointed spear or pinaka), the destroyer, all in one, as well as the embodiment of the three-fold Vedas; Rig, Yajus and Saman.


      konasthah pingala babruh
      krishno roudroantako yamah
      sourih shanaish-charo manday
      pippalandena sam stutah


      Thus, Pippalada praises Thee (by chanting your ten names as contained in lines 1-3).


      etani dasha-namani
      pratar-uthaya yah pathet
      shanaishchara-krita peeda
      na kadachid bhavishyati
      Harih Om


      He who chants these ten names, getting-up early in the morning, will never suffer from the pain caused by Saturn. Harih Om.
