This is my SHANIDEV – my god
My life starts by you –
As a disciple and follower of shanidev – I want you all to know the greatness of kindest and biggest of all forces of universe ,those living on earth and those living there in sky.
The presence of shanidev can be tracked well lakhs of years ago when the earth was formed and SUN – who gives light to the world was at the top of his pride and was destroying the earth by his high degree of heat.
No one has the power or the courage to confront him and stop the carnage of the earth.
Even his wife CHHAYA was unable to see the face of her husband ,son shani and she couldn’t live in that condition.
Then the 3 lords Brahma ,Vishnu and Mahesh awaited and brought THE DAY –THE BIRTH OF THE JUDGE- THE KINDEST JUDGE.
THUS WAS BORN SHANIDEV ON THE DAY SATURDAY IN KUMBH RASHI .
NAME – SHANIDEV
MOTHERS NAME – CHHAYA
FATHERS NAME – SUN (SURYA)
BROTHER – YAMRAJ (GOD OF DEATH)
SISTER – YAMUNA AND 5 MORE – TOTAL 6
TIME – EVENING
FAVOURITE ELEMENTS- TIL , SARSO,UDAD ,LOHA,BLACK AND BLUE CLOTH

People take shanidev as a planet, but he is the biggest of all , he is the ultimate , he is the king , he is the only one.
Surya – when sun came , brought light to everyone
chandra- when comes gives white light and silence to the night

SHANIDEV – WHEN COMES ALL THIS PLANETS ENTER THEIR HOMES AFTER SEEING HIM
The day had come and was born shanidev on the auspicious day of Saturday , but the birth of shanidev didn’t please sun and he was not happy with the appearance of shanidev.
Sun who is beautiful and bright in colour and likes bright things was unpleased at the dark and black complexion of shanidev and cursed him that how he could be so dark.
Thus was laid the seed for the enemities between father and son.
Sun and shanidev are biggest enemies.
But mother CHHAYA – who by her name only depicts evening was also unable to live with the intensity of sun celebrated the birth of shanidev and life moved on along with other siblings.
Shanidev by nature was arrogant ,angry and a rigid person and would show this behaviour at every moment.
Days were passing and shanidev along with his brother and sisters was growing up and situation was getting bitter for the sun.
Lots of complain and fear was coming from all over – that shanidev has captured all the stars who didn’t obey him, has stopped the flow of waters –who didn’t obey him .
Each and every element was affected by shanidev and even the 3 lords were shaking with fear – and they also didn’t have the courage to displease shanidev.
As days passed and situation for father sun , mother chhaya and shanidev himself got difficult.
Sun couldn’t tolerate the aggressiveness and looks of shanidev , chhaya was unable to bear the intensity of sun and unkindess of father and others shown to her son shanidev and shanidev himself who was very restless and wanted to break all shakles of freedom was getting more rigid with anger.
MOTHER CHHAYA- unable to bear the intensity of her husband surya(sun) decided to leave for tapovan ,himalayas and by using her power created a mirage of herself SANDHYA –which looked alike her and placed her inplace of herself and moved to Himalayas.
As sandhya was a look alike – no one ever understood that it was not chhaya.
But the love and intensity of a mother can be seen and felt.
One day my shanidev was playing and got hungry in the meantime.
He went to maa chhaya- who was actually sandhya and asked for food.
Sandhya was preparing food and said NO- I WILL FIRST OFFER FOOD TO ALL LORDS AND GOD ,THEN ONLY I WILL GIVE U.
Shanidev got angry , rigid, arrogant and said – NO – FIRST GIVE ME , AND THEN TO ALL.
Sandhya denied and in anger shanidev kicked the stomach of sandhya.
Sandhya got angry and told that for this mischief shanidev u will be limb and you wont be able to walk properly-
This is due to this words said that shanidev has one leg short.
In anxiety shanidev ran to father surya and recited the whole situation.
Sun got very worried and ran immediately to the mirage – and asked to show her actual identity, as sun was aware that no mother can curse her son and also that son whom she loved so much.
The mirage sandhya got afraid by the anger of sun and came in her actual face ,and told that she was the mirage of MAA CHHAYA.
Sun said that since the curse cannot be taken back – but every curse is a blessing in disguise and henceforth not only in human beings ,nature ,god –every thing in the universe will be ruled by you .
But the incident left shanidev more angry and arrogant and he was becoming restless day by day.
One day shanidev as usual was going in a forest and was sitting under a tree named PEEPAL
And in the meantime sun was getting worried as he was unable to control his son., so he summoned and asked help from the biggest friend of shanidev ,lord hanuman.
Hanuman was sent to shanidev to try make him understand and tell him to come back to his father, but shanidev become angry and a tremendous fight held in between shanidev and hanuman.
In the process the body of shanidev got scratched and he was indulged in high pain and asked hanuman his friend for help.
Hanuman got moved and applied sarso(mustard and til oil) on shanidev’s body and he got instant relief from the pain.
Shanidev got pleased with the situation and said that in full universe it will be only hanuman who will never get effected my me and whoever will pray hanuman and apply chandan,chameli oil to hanuman on Saturdays will get my blessings.
Hence in this world and universe its only hanuman who is unaffected by shanidev and is seen as the best friend of shanidev.
Shanidev has helped hanuman many times, when hanuman put fire in ravaan’s golden empire lanka, it began to glow as it was made of gold, it was then hanuman asked help from shanidev and asked him to put his sight on lanka, shanidev helped and put his sight on lanka and whole empire became black .
So the greatness of shanidev was increasing day by day , but he remained restless.
Finally lord shiv gave blessings to shanidev and posted him on the throne of judgement and ruling the entire universe.
Shanidev gives fruits to a person according to his deeds and no one in this planet , universe –even gods have the courage to confront him or displease him.
He is the kindest of all and loves his followers like a son.
