Saturn Yantra / Shani Yantra
Saturn yantra or Shani yantra may be used to increase strength of Saturn and gain benefits from it. Hence Saturn yantra may be used when Saturn is duly benefic and it may also be used for partly benefic and partly malefic Saturn in many cases. However, Saturn yantra is generally not used for highly malefic Saturn. An exception to this rule may be in case when Saturn is a converted malefic in a horoscope. This concept has been discussed in the article ‘How do yantras Work’.
In general, Saturn yantra seems to do the same job that Blue Sapphire may do. Though the broader results provided by Saturn yantra and Blue Sapphire may be similar; there are differences. These differences have been discussed in the article ‘How do yantras Work’.
As Saturn gains extra strength through Shani yantra; the native may witness better results related to general as well as specific significances of Saturn; provided Saturn is duly or partly benefic in his horoscope or it is a converted malefic. Taking an example, suppose Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Scorpio along with malefic Rahu and Jupiter.
Saturn rules the fourth and fifth house in this horoscope, it is benefic and it is afflicted by two malefic planets. Hence it may turn into a partly malefic planet. In this case, Saturn yantra may help the native achieve better results by supplying more energy to Saturn. As the native establishes Saturn yantra and he starts attending to it regularly; he may witness better and better results. In the present case; the native may witness better results related to money, wealth, finances, education, mother, wealth, vehicles, properties, children, love life and spiritual growth among other things.
Though Shani yantra may produce similar or better results than Blue Sapphire; the latter is still much more preferred by most astrologer. This is because of the reason that a native wearing Blue Sapphire doesn’t need to do anything in order to get such benefits through it; apart from wearing it. On the other hand, a native using Saturn yantra may need to pray to it on daily basis in order to benefit from it.
To have an idea; in order to witness similar benefits as those given by a 4 carat Blue Sapphire of good quality, the native may need to chant about 1500 to 2000 Veda mantras or Beej mantras of Saturn on daily basis. Since the process is time consuming; most natives may choose to go with Blue Sapphire instead of Saturn yantra. However, if a native is not able to afford Blue Sapphire; Shani yantra may do the job in such case, though it may require effort from native’s end.
In order for Saturn yantra to render proper benefits to a native; it should first be purified, energized and programmed for the native through Vedic procedures. Looking at the process; Shani yantra is purified in the first step. Through Vedic procedures; any type of negative energy attached to this yantra is removed during this step. Since many people may have left their energy/aura imprints on Saturn yantra before you buy it; these imprints need to be removed.
In the second step; this yantra is energized and programmed for you. For this; your as well as your father’s name may be used. Hence the yantra is prepared and energized specifically for you; with the chant of Saturn mantras. In general; 11,000 Veda mantras or Beej mantras of Saturn are used to energize this yantra and they are more than sufficient to energize it. If the number of mantras is reduced a lot; the process of energization may not be carried out properly and the native may not benefit from Shani yantra in the best possible way.
Once you receive your purified, energized and programmed Saturn yantra; the next step is to establish it in your house, office, wallet or pocket; depending on the size of Saturn yantra you have chosen. The most commonly used size of this yantra is fit for establishing it in your house or office. For best results, you should establish Saturn yantra on a Saturday and you should establish it in the place of worship in your house or office; in case you have chosen a bigger size. If you’ve chosen a smaller size, you can keep it in your pocket or wallet.
During the time your Saturn yantra reaches you and you establish it; you can keep it at any clean place, like in a cupboard. After taking bath on a Saturday morning (7 AM to 11 AM), take your yantra and go the place you want to establish it. Place the yantra there, sprinkle some holy water or unboiled milk on your Shani yantra, chant 108 Beej mantras of Saturn, pray to Saturn and ask for the best possible results. Your Saturn yantra has been established. In case you need to keep it in your pocket; place it somewhere clean after taking bath; complete the aforementioned steps and then put it in your pocket.
In order to receive sufficient energy through this yantra, you need to attend to it on daily basis. Every day after taking bath or preparing yourself for the day, go to the place where your Saturn yantra has been placed. Focus on it, chant 108 or more mantras of Saturn and then request your specific wishes from this yantra. In case you are carrying this yantra in your pocket, simply hold it in your hands after bath, focus on it, chant 108 or more mantras of Saturn and request your wishes from this yantra. Attending to your Saturn yantra on regular basis establishes proper connection between you and the yantra; which helps you get optimum benefits through it.
