Mala used for Counting (Chanting) Mantras associated with Shani Bhagvan

Mala (rosary) used for counting (chanting) mantras dedicated to Shani Bhagvan is usually made Black Hakik stone (agate stone). Black is the color associated with Shani. Those suffering from bad position of Shani in horoscope and Sade Sati get relief by chanting Shani mantras using Mala made of Black Hakik stone.

Another mala that is used for chanting mantra is the mala made from Vajainti stone. This is also recommended for chanting Shani mantras.
Those people who follow and believe in astrology are of the view that for getting good benefit of mantras one should use malas associated with the particular deity.
Thus for Shani mantras the first choice is Black Hakik Stone mala.

Teachings on Human Goal Kama – in Upanishad Ganga Serial

Wise Words – Dr S Radhakrishnan

The Absolute which is the Real beyond all darkness is superior to the division of spirit and matter. It is omniscient, omnipresent and almighty. It manifests itself in the three forms (Trimurti), Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva – the maker, the preserver and the destroyer.
Each person can tread the path which appeals to him, for the different forms of Godhead are the manifestations of the One Supreme who is the Formless behind all forms.
Until the end of religion, the realization of the Supreme, the ascent from the vanity of time is attained, we will have opportunities for making progress towards the goal. In this journey towards the end we will be governed by the law of karma.
This life is one stage in the path of perfection. Even as the present life is the result of our past deeds, we can shape our future by our efforts in this life. The world is under a moral government. The good will ultimately triumph.
Dr S Radhakrishnan
