How Shani Became Mandgati? – Story of the Reason for Shani Moving Slowly in Horoscope

One of the popular names of Shani is Mandgati – the slow-moving planet or navgraha. The reason for Shani moving slowly is associated with Sage Piplad. Shani moves very slowly in the horoscope (nearly 29 years to complete one revolution around the sun) when compared to other planets.

Sage Piplad had lost his father in his childhood. When he grew up, he discovered that the reason for the death of his father was Shani. His father was going through the bad phase of life caused by Shani.

Sage Piplad was a great ascetic who had the power to summon the Brahmadanda – stick of Lord Brahma. He released the Brahmadanda on Shani.

Fearing for his life, Shani began to run. He ran in the three worlds with the Brahmadanda in his hot pursuit.

Running for such long time got his feet injured and he was handicapped and not able to move fast. Shani then prayed to Shiva to find a solution to the problem.

Shiva appeared before Sage Piplad and told him that Shani does not do anything purposefully. He has n…

Hindus who strictly follow astrology and tradition do not eat certain kind of food on a particular day of a week. This list is based on North Indian astrological tradition.

Monday - Sugar is avoided on Monday. Somwar (Monday) is associated with Chandra – the moon good. Sugar is believed to be the food of Chandra and therefore it is avoided.

Tuesday - Ghee is avoided on Tuesday or Mangalwar. It is believed that it will cause health issues. Mangal, or Mars, is a fiery planet. So eating ghee on Tuesday is like fuel to fire.

Swami Akhandananda Thoughts

Spiritual life is not possible with an empty stomach, so real ‘religion’ in a country of chronic hunger is feeding the poor; then comes education and medical service.

Constant remembrance of God and unlimited reliance upon Him under all circumstances is Sadhana.

Is it easy to realize the self? Incarnations (Avatars) of God are God Himself, yet they themselves have to struggle so much, not to speak of others.

The divine soul is sleeping in everyone. It is to be roused. Everyone is always trying to express that Self.

When the Self is realized, you will feel its presence everywhere. This is Siddhi. The goal is to reach this state. Everybody must get back this realization, because it is our real nature.
Swami Akhandananda – a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna.


We desire a thing because of a feeling of incompleteness without it. But when we realise that what we ordinarily understand as "We" is nothing but the Absolute Bliss, the illusive pleasures after which the sens…
