Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed Shani Jayanti , Vat Savitri Fast and Somvati Amavasya… ( 3rd June 2019 )
Today is a beautiful day to expiate one’s karmic debts by doing charitable activities… doing charity on the name of your ancestors helps in cleansing their blockages and also blessed you with good fortune in return…
Today is Shani Jayanti … offer food and money to someone in need or a beggar today. since it is also Shani Dev’s birth anniversary , it is also a beautiful time to appease him by offering him black sesame seeds, black urad daal , mustard oil , iron utensil or nail, black cloth etc…
chanting Shanti mantra expiates the negative impact of Saturn if one is suffering from Saturn Saadesaati ( seven and half year period of Saturn transit) or Saturn Dhaiyya ( 2 and half year period) . the mantra to appease Saturn is as follows:
Both the aforesaid mantra should be chanted 108 times each… offerings to Shani Dev is done late in the evening.. light mustard oil diva in front of Shani dev and chant the aforesaid mantra also offering him the aforesaid offerings..
light a diya ( earthen lamp) beneath a Peepal tree tonight seeking blessings and protection… repeat it for seven saturdays to remove blockages from your life..
Today is also Somvati Amavasya i.e. an Amavasya tithe / date falling on a Monday the day of Lord Shiva ( the Lord of Nirvana) .. the significance of this day is its extremely Nirvanic auspiciousness… Although the main Mauni Amavasya falls on the month of Magna ( January) , serious seekers do follow silence on this day i.e. Maun means silence.. Since this is an amavasya falling on Monday, it is very auspicious to follow silent fasting and offering prayers to one’s ancestors…..
This is a very powerful day to expiate one’s negative karma that one is born with in this life time..
In the morning , it is very auspicious to take holy dip in the Hole rivers and in doing Tarpan ( water with sesame seeds is offered to them in the morning) for your ancestors helps in expiating their blockages and brings them Moksha (Divine Bliss) … In the evening , light an earthen lamp filled with mustard oil in the open terrace or balcony of your house . keep a handful of rice grains and put this earthen lamp on top if it.. the light should be facing South direction. when you light this lamp , sink of your ancestors and seek their blessings..
Doing charity today on the name of one’s ancestors helps in cleansing their karmic debts and also in building your good fortune.
Today is also Vat Savitri fast which is followed in the northern India where married women take fast for the wellbeing of their husbands and for the well being of their children.. offering food to needy people and seeking blessings of Goddess Savitri . The story of Satyawaan and Savitri is read and blessings of Yamraj is also sought. women seek blessings from ‘Vat’ tree where it is believed that all the three Gods , Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh resides.. they tie the Holy thread around the tree praying for wellbeing of their husband and children.
overall its a beautiful day to follow charitable activities.. also mediating today and sending healing light to all the ancestors and to all the sentient beings of the earth cleanses one of deep karmic debts and also brings love and light in his/her life..
Have a beautiful day…!…
