Saturn is Lame
There is a here say that Saturn is lame. It also has a story behind it. Pippladi had lost his father in his childhood. His father, who was leading an ascetic life on the banks of Yamuna river was tortured by Saturn. Pippladi’s father lost his life due to the constant attack of diseases and poverty. His mother made Shani the culprit of her husband’s demise. When, pipplad grew up, he came to know all the facts of his father by his mother. He was outrageous after knowing all the facts. He started searching shani. Once he found him on a Peepal tree. He attacked him with a weapon called (Brahm dand). Shani could not bear this attack so he started running in order to avoid it. Brahm dand made him run in three Lokas. Finally he broke his leg& made him lame. A lame Shani requested lord Shiva for his blessings. Lord Shiv made Pippaladi realize that Shani was his help mate and doing what He had been told. He is also instrumental to bring discipline in the Universe. Shani is not the cause of your father’s death, Pippaladi, after knowing this fact forgave Lord Shani.
