Thirunallru Sthala varalaru, dosham and remedial measures
Shanaiswara Bhagavan waiting to aspect Nala,
noticed that he had not washed the back portion of his feet,
while preparing for his prayers. Deciding this was the opportune
time, he aspected Nala. Because of this, Nala lost his composure
and lost his kingdom to Pudkaran in a game of dice and sent his
children to their uncle's house. Nala departed to the forest
with his wife Damayanti. Saneeswaran created trouble even there
and made Nala desert his wife in the forest. The snake Karkotagan
bit Nala, making him lose his stature (was made to look ugly). He
took on the job of a charioteer with king Irudhupannan.
Damayanti, in the meantime reached the kingdom of her father, and
arranged a Swayamvara to locate Nala. Damyanti identified Nala,
the charioteer as her husband. Thanks to a boon from Karkodagan,
Nala regained his old form. In spite of being back with his wife,
Nala feeling very disturbed, sought the solace of sage Bharadwaja
and on his advice reached Thirunallar. He bathed in the Brahma
Thirtham of the temple, and when he entered the sanctum sanctorum
of the temple, Saneeswaran departed from him.
Saneeswaran resides in each Rasi for a period of 2
1/2 years. When Saneeswaran resides in the 12th, 1st and 2nd
house, it is 7 1/2 Naatu Sani ; when in the 4th house, it is
Arthashtama Sani; when in the 8th house, it is Ashtama Sani.
During these periods, he troubles the native.
Problems from Govt., peers, wife, children,
slowdown in business, loss of property, leprosy are caused by
transit of Sani.In a person's life, 7 1/2 Naatu Sani aspects
thrice, the first called Mangu Sani, the second called Pongu Sani
and the third called Marana Sani.
Saneeswaran is reputed to be both, a giver and
destroyer. A person who prays to Saneeswaran will be blessed with
not only riddance from the problems and worries faced, but a life
that one desires.
