Religious Importance of Planet Saturn
Lord Shani is believed to be the son of Lord Sun and Chhaya. According to Vedic beliefs, Lord Sun got married to Devi Sangya, daughter of Deva Vishwakarma. After some time, they were blessed with two children: Yama and Yami. As Lord Sun exhibits extreme vibrance, Lady Sangya was unable to bear it for a long time. She left behind Devi Chhaya, her counterpart, for serving the God and herself left for tenacity, so that she could gain strength for enduring the heat of Lord Sun. After some time, Devi Chhaya gave birth to Shani Dev.
Seeing the appearance of Lord Shani, Surya Deva refused to accept him as his son and also berated Shani’s mother Chhaya. Getting furious with this, Lord Shani inflicted his bad influence on him. Later, Trinity Gods (Tridev) appointed him as Karmaphal Data Shani, so that he can deliver judgement to all living beings of different worlds according to their deeds, whether good or bad.
One time, Dashanan Ravana wished for a child who would remain immortal and invincible, whom he named as Meghnath. So, with his knowledge and power, Ravana captured all the planets and imprisoned them in the 11th House of Meghnath’s Kundli. If this wish of Ravana had been fulfilled, it would have been impossible for anyone to kill Meghnath. So, Shanidev put his one leg in the 12th House of Meghnath’s Kundli to avoid this from happening. When Ravana found out about this, he got angry and attacked the leg of Lord Shani. It is believed that since then he started moving slowly and also became the punisher (Dandadhikari) of bad and evil.
