The book “Saturn: Maladies and Remedies” is a different kind of book on astrology. Its distinction lies in its being a practical guide book rather than a theoretical treatise. Its objective is to offer treatment rather then merely pronouncing diagnosis. Many human beings who suffer from the wrath of Saturn in their lives, continue to grope in the dark, not knowing how to overcome the spell of the profoundly mysterious Saturn, dreadfully known as Shani’s Sadhe Sati or evil perioudsa of Saturn.
The above human condition can be surely improved upon by the panacea-like package of remedies offered in the book in the shape of Dashrath Krit Shani Stotra, Shani Stavraj, Shani Bajrapanjar Kavach, Mahakal Shani Mrityunjaya Stotra, Shani Sahastranaam Stotra, Shani ki Pataal Kriya, Hanumadvadavanal Strotra, Sankatmochan Hanumat Stotra, Hanuman Bahuk, Tantra prayog, Shanivar Vrat Katha, a great remedy, Pashupatastra Device, Donation for Saturn as superb remedy and Remedies through ‘Lal-Kitab’ etc.
The remedies of manby kinds including the Veidc Mantras, classical stotras anusthan along with the remedies of Saturn through ‘Lal Kitab’ are presented here in their full splendour, with minute details and specifications as to how to put the remedy to the maximum benefits without inviting any harm.
This book, brought out by the renowned duo in the field o astrology, Mrs. Mridula Trivedi and Mr. T. P. Trivedi is a culmination of their recent campaign to unravel the mysteries of Saturn through such books as ‘Saturn: The kind Maker’, ‘Secrets of Saturn’, ‘Reunderstanding Saturn’. Having dealt with both theoretical and diagnostic aspects on the wrath of Saturn, the way was paved for zeroing in the practical and remedial aspects of Saturn’s wrath, which gets manifested in several maladies.
The book is a must for a Saturn-afflicted person, who can find here a variety of remedies to choose form, according to the gravity of the malady personal aptitude and convenience.
One of the main values of astrology lies in overcoming adverse trends through what are called as remedial measures. These remedial measures are scattered in the vast literature on astrology and Mantra Shastra. Mrs. Mridula Trivedi deals with this area of knowledge with reference to Saturn in her book Shani Shaman (Saturn Maladies and Remedies) She gives details of different ways to overcome the results attributed to both transit and natal Saturn, drawing extensively from classical authorites.
The volume is a welcome addition to the literature available on remedial measures.
Astrology is both a holistic and humane science. It is to achieve these two values of holism and humaneness that the book Saturn Maladies and Remedies is being presented. We have attempted to explore and unravel the various aspect of both malefic and benefic effects of Saturn on the birth charts of natives through our books “Saturn The King Maker”, “Secrets of Saturn”, “Reunderstanding Saturn” and “Shani Shaman (in Hindi)”. In these books we focused on one planet and its list pact on human life. Although this offered an opportunity to go in depth with an eye on detail. The underlying purpose in these earlier works on Saturn was foretelling and diagnosing the impact of Saturn. But mere diagnosis is short of completeness or holism. It was, therefore, in the fitness of things as well as in the true holistic spirit of astrology that the series of books that was devoted to the diagnostic aspects finds its completion in the present book which is therapeutically in nature, elaborating on treatment and healing.
As to the humane side of the book, it may be pertinent to recall the lesson of the parable used by the Buddha in which he says that the most essential need of the person who is suffering from the excruciating pain caused by the arrow is to take out the pierced arrow and try to heal up the wound rather than knowing minutely about the size and shape of the arrow. The person afflicted by the maladies caused by Saturn can be helped in true sense only by being presented with a package of curative devices and measures that assuage the pain and injury due to Saturn.
The book is divided into 23 chapters that delineate the various kinds of misery, ailment and misfortune as maladies caused Saturn and presents a vast varieties of reliable remedies in the form of Dashrath Krit Shani Stotra, Shani Stavan, Pippladrishi krit Shani Stotra, Shani Stavraj, Shani Bajrapanjar Kavach, Mahakal Shani Mrityunjaya Stotra, Shani Kavach, Shani Sahastranam Stotra, Shani Ki Pataal Kriya, Hanumat Mantra Aradhana, Langoolastra Shatrunjaya Hanumat Stotra, Hanumadvadvanal Stotra, Sankatmochan Hanumat Stotra, Hanumat Panchratna Stotra, Hanuman Bahuk, Yantra Prayog, Amriteshwar Mantra Prayog, Shanivar Vrat Katha, Pashupatastra Device. Donation for Saturn and ‘Lal-Kitab’.
We know that astrology can predict and diagnose diseases by a thorough analysis of the horoscope and can help mankind by suggesting preventive rneasures But what happens when a man is already under the adverse influence of planets like Saturn. In this situation the influence has already set in, now what is required is no further diagnosis, but treatment, curative measures or therapeutics. A major part of Medical Astrology centers around diagnosing Karmic diseases that are direct results of our evil Karmas in the present or past birth and that are revealed by the constellation of planets in our horoscopes. But it should also suggest cure instead of confining itself to diagnosis.
Granted that the correlation between the planets and diseases is quite conclusive, what does one do when he is in the thick of the adverse influence except softening the onslaught of the wrathful planet by a heartfelt penance, soulful prayer and a host of well-tested curative devices that have done wonders.
The present book is attempted with a pious urge to complete the curative aspects of Medical Astrology on the one hand and provide to the Saturn afflicted individuals solace and confidence to be able to overcome the critical period and bring a turn-around in their life by the grace of Saturn.
