Shani Amavasya, also known as Shani Jayanti, commemorates the birth of Lord Shani (Saturn).

Lord Shani is a deity who requires no introduction. However, he is often misunderstood. Many people fear him due to his reputation for delivering the consequences of our past-life karma, whether they are good or bad, with absolute fairness and strictness.

Saturn, the Karmic Imprint:

Lord Shani, also known as Saturn, is revered as the Lord of Karma. The stark truth is that we are born to settle our karmic debts, but we often lose sight of this purpose and become overly attached to worldly matters. In such instances, Saturn intervenes to awaken and shake us from our slumber. Although Saturn’s approach may not be pleasant, it is undeniably effective in fulfilling its duty.
