    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).

    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).

    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.

    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.
