संकट तें हनुमान छुड़ावै।मन क्रम बचन ध्यान जो लावै।।
Ravana, the ruler of Lanka, had become too powerful and crushed all the Devas bringing all the grahas (planets in soothsaying) under his influence. He kept these planets smothered underneath his foot. At the point when his oldest child, Indrajit, was going to be conceived he powerfully kept all the grahas in the favourable astrological position. The Devas were concerned that if Ravana’s child was brought into the world in an ideal visionary position, he will be strong. So they asked all the grahas (planets) to move from the ideal position. Nonetheless, they couldn’t escape from the trap of Ravana.
Shani consented to help gave he had the option to look upon Ravana’s face. There is a prevalent view that Shani Drishti, or Shani’s look, is just about as dangerous as his position. Shani is accepted to project a hostile stare and this causes a predicament. The Devas looked for Saint Narada’s assistance to dispense Shani’s Drishti on Ravana. Narada arrived at Ravana’s royal residence and saw Shani and different planets under the feet of Ravana. Narada praised Ravana’s victory over the grahas and suggested that he should stamp on their chest as this will be Ravana’s true symbol of victory and not on their back as he is doing now.
Ravana agreed to Narada’s observation and immediately got the planets turned around. As Shani turned around, his glance fell on Ravana’s face and thus kick-started his hardships. Ravana understood the ploy, got enraged and imprisoned Shani. He locked him up in a tiny dark cell that had no opening.
Following quite a long while, when Lord Hanuman showed up in Lanka – as a messenger from Shree Ram to Mata Sita, he heard Shani’s cry from a dull cell. Hanuman tore open the jail and protected Shani. Shani said thanks to Hanuman for protecting him and offered help as a trade-off. As a boon, Hanuman asked Shani not to trouble or cast an evil eye on his devotees. To which Shani agreed. From that day people started worshipping Hanuman to escape or nullify the effects of Shani’s Drishti.
