Samba, May 18
An impressive Shobha Yatra was taken out on the occasion of Shani Jayanti with full religious fervour and gaiety here today. According to press release, a large number of devotees participated in the Shoba Yatra. The Shoba Yatra started from Geeta Bhawan Samba, passed through Chohatta Chowk, Hari Singh Chowk, Main Bazaar, Bus Stand and thereafter culminated again at Geeta Bhawan Samba where a big congregation was held. Shani’s gravitational power is more than that of the Earth’s. Therefore, when we think good or bad thoughts and make plans, they reach Shani by the strength of his power. In astrological terms, the bad influence is considered as unlucky.
But the result of good deeds will be good. Therefore, we must understand God Shani as a friend and not as foe. And for bad deeds, he is Sade Saathi, disaster and an enemy. The people en route greeted the Shoba Yatra by showering flowers and the participants enjoyed the trance while chanting the Bhajans in praise of Shani Ji Maharaj.
