Saturn (Shani) - Puja and Havan

“Neelanjana samaabhasam ravi putram yamagrajam chaaya martanda sambhootam tam namaami shanaischaram”

The idol of the Saturn should be made using iron. Saturn should be perceived with the radiance of blue color and the four arms are bedecked with shoola, bow, arrow and one hand in a state of blessing posture, riding on a donkey.

Saturn (Shani) should be worshipped with the flowers and clothes of the colors of the idol and with fragrance, sticks, deepa, giving oblations, Dhupa, Guggul, etc. The metal of the idol of the planet and the food dear to him as signified by the planet are donated in charity with full devoutness for the alleviation of the affliction.

Maharishi Parashara said that the Mantra of Saturn should be recited twenty three thousand times. 

The type of wood to be used for Havan of Saturn is Shami. The Havana Samagri duly mixed with honey, ghee, curd or milk is offered as oblations into the sacred fire and amidst chanting of the Mantras for 108 or 28 times, the Havana should be performed.

After that Brahmins should be fed. Rice baked with sesame (Til) is a must for remedy of Saturn. After the worship Dakshina should be given as per shraddha of yajmana (person performing the Havan) and satisfaction of Brahmins.
