Sani Pradosham: Saturday -- July 2, 2016

Below are photographs of Sani Pradosham observed at Arunachaleswarar Temple on Saturday, July 2, 2016. 

Saturday is dedicated to Lord Saniswaran, one of the nine celestial Gods (Navagrahas). The planet Saturn is considered an agent of Karma who delivers many difficult trials in our lives in order to help refine and evolve our souls. 

 It is thought that on the day of Sani Pradosham Lord Siva has more influence over Saturn and can cause him to release some of our karmic bonds.

It seems that each pradosham there are more people at the Temple.

Nice blog. Very informative and nice collection of images. Sani Pradosham is the powerful pradosham among all prodoshams. On this auspicious day perform Sani Pradosha Pooja for getting the blessings of Lord Shiva and Lord Shani.
