Lord Hanuman & Lord Shani

As per the various ancient stories, Lord Rama, a progeny of the Sun and a gem of the 'Raghukul' was exiled due to the anguish of Lord Shani. The golden city of Ravana was turned into ashes just because he had insulted Lord Shani. According to an ancient story Ravana invaded over Lord Shani’s territory, since he was overambitious for attaining immortality. He had imprisoned Lord Shani.

As per the law of Brahma, Lord Shani remained in Ravana’s imprisonment till Lord Hanuman reached Lanka, in search of ‘Maa’ Sita. When fire was set on the tail of Hanuman ji and with the help of his tail, he set Lanka on fire. He found Lord Shani in the basement of Ravana’s palace. At the humble request of Lord Shani, Shree Hanuman ji made him free from confinement. Consequently, Lord Shani starred at Lanka through his slayer aspect and it was ruined away within no time, leaving behind none; from Ravana’s family. Lanka was ruined away to ashes and Shree Hanuman received the help of Lord Shani in his attempt to ruin away Lanka. Since Lord Shani got pleased with Hanuman, he asked him for service. At this, Shree Hanuman got a promise from Lord Shani that he may not trouble those people who are the devotees of Lord Hanuman.

A lot many stories from our ancient books justify of keeping up the words given by Lord Shani to Shree Hanuman ji.
As few Epics say, Pandavas were made to dwell in the forest due to the fatal effects of Lord Shani. Their troubles could come to an end, only after prospecting Lord Hanuman and the grace bestowed by him. Even King ‘Nal’ happened to undergo lot many troubles. His troubles could finally come to an end with a result of the devotion of Lord Hanuman.
