Meaning: (From TK Govinda Rao’s book)
I always (“santhatham” ) meditate (“chintayeham”) upon the slow moving Shani, the son (“Danujam”) of SURYA (sun - “Divakara”) and the courageous (“Dheera tharam”) one.
He causes fear (“bhayankaram”) in people plunged (“nimagna”) in the ocean of worldly life (“bhavam”) and is the harbinger of bad effects (“atikrura phaladam”) of one’s life. He grants unique auspicious rewards (“phaladam”) for devotees (“bhuta”) favoured (“paathra”) by Paramasiva’s (“bhavaneesha”) benevolent glances (“kataaksha”).
He who with a body(“deham”) of dark luster (“kanthi yukta”) like collyrium (“kalaanjana”), is the brother (“sahodaram”) of YAMA, the god of death (“kaala”).
He rides on the crow (“kaka”) as his vehicle (“vaaham”). He is decorated (“alankankrutam”) with a blue dress, garland (“malavruttam”) of blue flowers (“neelamsuka pushpa”), oranments (“ratna bhushana”) embedded with blue sapphire stones.
He delights (“muditham”) Guruguha. He is worshipped (“vinuta”) by Maalini Mantra.
He is the lord of the two Raasis: Capricorn (“Makara”) and Aquarius (“Kumbha”).
He has special liking (“priyam”) for the lamp (“deepa”) lit with sesame (“Tilataila”) and for rice (“anna”) cooked (“misri”) with sesame seeds.
He is an ocean (“saagaram”) of nectar (“sudha”) of compassion (“dayaa”) and He is is fearless (“nirbhayam”).
Whose knee (“Jaanum”) was disfigured (“paripeeditha”) by the staff (“danda”) of Kaala, the God of death.
He is like Kamadhenu, yielding all desires (“kaamithartha phalada”).
He is the fire (“chitra bhaanum”) capable of splitting (“bheda”) the time (“kala”) wheel (“chakra”) of life and one conceived (“kalpita”) as the son (“sunum”) of the goddess (“devi”) Chaayaa.
