or the welfare and growth of the nation, a massive Shani Telabhishek and Pujan programme will take place at Shree Siddh Shakti Peeth Shani Dham, Asola, Fatehpur Beri on the occasion of Shani Amavasya , i.e. 14 th July, 2007. The Puja will will non-stop continue till the mid night of 14th July. This will be followed by the Maha Aarti, Bhasmabishek, Panchamrit Bath, Gangajalabhishek and Telabhishek of Lord Shani Dev by Shanicharanuragi Sant Shiromani Daati Madan Maharaj Rajasthani ji. Lakhs of people are expected to perform the Shani Puja on this auspicious occassion. Preparations for this big occasion are taking place in Shree Shani Dham from several months. Arrangements for medical and other facilities, besides the police and administrative arrangements are also made to meet any discomfort to the devotees. Keeping in view the scorching heat, drinking water has also been arranged for the devotees.

Shani is the Supreme adjudicator of all the celestial planets, and immediately a day after the Shani Amavasya, i.e on 15th July, the Shani will transit to the Leo . this will effect Sadhe Sati, Dhaiyya and Mahadasha related impacts on people belonging to several Rashies (Moon Signs).

Each transit of Shani effects Seven signs (Rashies) simultaneously. Similarly, this time people belonging to Mesha (Aries), Kark (Cancer), Sinh (Leo), Kanya (Virgo), Tula (Libra), Makar (Capricorn) and Kumbh (Acquarius) signs will be effected by the transit of Shani. Sadhe Sati, Dhaiyya and Mahadasha related impacts on people belonging to these Rashies will start from 15 th July. Thus the Shani Amavasya is a rare opportunity to please the Shanidev a day before his transit. According to the Peethadheeshwar of the Shri Siddh Shakti Peeth Shani Dham, Shanicharanuragi Sant Shiromani Daati Madan Maharaj Rajasthaniji, prayers and Telabhishek of Shanidev on Shani Amavasya and Shani Jayanti pleases him and fulfills ones all desires and ambitions. This also emancipates one from the planetary position born difficulties and troubles. Since this transit of Shanidev is going to effect several signs, thus if the people belonging to the effect bearing signs in particular, perform the Shani Puja on this Shani Amavasya, they will be bestowed with the boundless grace of Shanidev, and the impact of Shani's transit on their sign will turn positive.

According to Daati, Shani Amavasya is also the revered occasion to please the ancestors. Prayer to Shanidev on this day fulfills ones desires and extinguishes the adverse impact of planetary positions, Dasha, Mahadasha etc. Observation of fast, recital of Strot Mantra, Tailabhishek etc. rites on this date give multiple results. Similarly, rites are also being performed for adverse impacts of planetary positions, family feuds, downfall in business-jobs etc., mental and physical ailments, delay in marriage, sorrows of quarrelsome conjugal relations etc. The Telabhishek on this particular day is a divine opportunity to change ones life altogether.

According to Daati, the divine treatises have said that the entire world is commanded by planets and Shanidev is the chief controller of them. Shani is not a malefic planet, but the Supreme adjudicator of all the celestial planets. According to Daati, the Shanidev fulfills all the desires of his devotees, so that they may not have to bear the negative impacts of planets. Shanidev is the benefactor of Karma, Dharma, fate and Moksha. Shanidev is not a malefic, but a benefic planet. Thus, one should concentrate on his or her deed (Karma), instead of cursing the Shanidev. Shanidev never does any harm to anybody out of his own. Rather Shanidev keeps a record of deeds of everybody's deeds, and delivers justice according to it. Thus the Satkarma (right deeds) can deliver the boundless grace of Shanidev and can get the favorable impact of planets. That is why one should pray the Shanidev.

Shani Amavasya is the most favorable day to please Shanidev. More so, falling just a day before a major transit of Shanidev, it bears special significance. Peethadheeshwar of the Shri Siddh Shakti Peeth Shani Dham, Shanicharanuragi Sant Shiromani Daati Madan Maharaj Rajasthaniji performs special rites on each Shani Amavasya for the benefit of the people suffering from the negative impacts of Kaal Sarp Yoga, Dhaiyya and Sadhe Saati. Lakhs of people join him on each Shani Amavasya, and seek the blessings. You too should come and bring your near and dear ones.

Om Sham Shanishcharaya Namah.

u should face the West direction as Shani Dev is the ruler of west direction. East is the direction of Surya Dev.
