What to do to get benefits of Makar Sankranti 2024 Shani Niyama

Makar Sankranti 2024: There are a total of 12 Sankranti in a year, but Makar Sankranti is considered important. Makar Sankranti is celebrated on that day when the Sun enters Capricorn in the month of Pausha. This year Makar Sankranti is on 15 January 2024.

This is the day of conjunction of Sun and Saturn. It is believed that worshiping the Sun with black sesame seeds on this day provides relief from the wrath of Saturn. Also, reading the story of Lord Sun and Saturn on the occasion of Makar Sankranti brings happiness and prosperity in life. Let us know the story of Makar Sankranti.

Story of Makar Sankranti:

According to mythology, Lord Surya and Shani Dev were father and son, but their relationship was bitter. The reason for this was the behavior of Lord Surya towards Shani’s mother Chaya. When Shani was born, Lord Surya refused to accept him as his son after seeing his dark complexion. He separated Shani and his mother Chhaya and from then on they started living in a house called Kumbh. However, Chaya, hurt by the behavior of Lord Surya, cursed him with leprosy.

Lord Surya suffering from leprosy:

Lord Surya’s son Yamraj, born from his first wife Sangya, became distressed after seeing his father suffering from leprosy. Yamraj is the son of Lord Surya from his first wife Sangya. Yamraj freed Lord Surya from leprosy. When Lord Surya became completely healthy, he focused his attention completely on Capricorn. Due to this, Shani’s house got burnt and since then Shani and his mother Chhaya became suffering from leprosy.

Saturn welcomed the Sun with black moles:

Seeing the plight of his stepmother and brother Shani, Yamraj prayed to his father Surya to forgive them for their well-being. Then Surya went to meet Shani. When Shani saw his father coming, he looked towards his burnt house. Some sesame seeds were kept in a vessel inside. Shani welcomed his father with these moles.

Saturn gets new home ‘Makar’:

Lord Surya was pleased by Shani’s house and he granted Shani a new house named ‘Makar’. Pleased, Shani announced that whoever worshiped Surya on Makar Sankranti would be freed from the influence of Shani and his house would be filled with wealth and prosperity. Therefore, when the Sun enters the first house of its son i.e. Capricorn, it is called Makar Sankranti.
