Shani Jayanti (Shanishwara Jayanti) is the first appearance day of Lord Shani Dev. Shani Dev is considered as an important among Navagrahas, Nine celestial Gods in Hinduism. In 2022, Shani Jayanti date is May 30.
Shani Jayanti falls on Amavasya in Jyeshta Month (Jyeshta Amavasya) as per North Indian Hindi calendars. It falls on Amavasya in Vaishakh Month (Vaishakha Amavasya) in Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati and Marathi calendars.
Shani Dosha is considered an important aspect in one’s birth chart. Sade Saati Shani, Ashtama Shani and Ardhashtama Shani are some other aspects related to Shani in anyone’s Janma Kundali.
To pacify or to reduce the impact of Shani Dosha on one’s life, Shani Amavasya (Shani Jayanti) is a great opportunity. Those who perform Shani Japam, Shani Homam, Shani Thailabhishekam or any other Shani Dosha Nivarana Pooja would get rid of Shani Dosha.
Shani Dham at Shingnapur in Maharashtra, Thirunallar Saniswaran Temple in Tamil Nadu, Mandapalli Shanishwara Temple in Andhra Pradesh and Vargal Shanishwara Devasthanam in Telangana are the best places to visit Lord Shani on Shani Jayanti day.
