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
