Shani Trayodashi: Significance

According to legends, devotees who fast on this day are said to receive special blessings such as a healthy, affluent, and prosperous life. They are also purified of their past and present misdeeds. On this day, Lord Shiva killed Asuras and Devas who requested help during the Pradosh Kaal. He was there, accompanied by his sacred bull Nandi. As a result, the trayodashi tithi is now associated with Lord Shiva and Nandi’s worship.

Shani Trayodashi: Katha

In ancient times, there was a man named Seth. There was every kind of comfort in Sethji’s house, but Seth and Sethani were always unhappy due to the absence of children. After much deliberation, Sethji handed over his work to the servants and himself went on a pilgrimage with Sethani. On coming out of his city, he found a sage who was sitting in meditation. Sethji thought why not take the blessings of the sage and travel further. Seth and Sethani sat next to the monk.

When the monk opened his eyes, he came to know that Seth and Sethani have been waiting for blessings for a long time. The monk told Seth and Sethani that I know your sorrow. If you observe Shani Pradosh fast, you will get child happiness.

The monk also told the method of Pradosh fast to Seth-Sethani and asked to recite the following worship of Lord Shiva while fasting.

हे रुद्रदेव शिव नमस्कार। शिवशंकर जगगुरु नमस्कार।। हे नीलकंठ सुर नमस्कार। शशि मौलि चन्द्र सुख नमस्कार।। हे उमाकांत सुधि नमस्कार। उग्रत्व रूप मन नमस्कार।। ईशान ईश प्रभु नमस्कार। विश्‍वेश्वर प्रभु शिव नमस्कार।।

Taking the blessings of both the sages, they left for the pilgrimage. After returning from the pilgrimage, Seth and Sethani performed Shani Pradosh Vrat together, which led to the birth of a beautiful son in their home and their life filled with happiness.
