Even females can worship lord shani
It’s surprising that a major class of the society considers females unworthy of worshipping Lord Shani. Incase someone asks them the reason thereof they are kept quiet. Some of them consider woman folk to be untouchable, where as some others consider them to be the weaker sex so that they are dread of the awful (horrible) form of Lord Shani. Instead of having faith and fidelity, their heart is shocked to look at Shani and they are badly horrified. It can harm them in many ways i.e. physically as well as mentally. However, such an idea is really fake, baseless and imaginary too. It has no traditional basis. So there exists no such reason; for which Lord Shani can’t be worshipped, adored or offered oil by the females.
Please, reflect upon it, our sages have considered them to be goddesses like and said, “Where their ladies are respected, the gods roam about there”. So how can such honoured persons can said to have been called impure. They are said to be the better half of the males. In case they are impure, how can man (male members) remain pure? In our classical books, it is mentioned very clearly that if a man performs any religious ceremony, without been accompanied by his wife, his pooja is not fructified. It can’t be a complete pooja. Even Lord Shiva, not accompanied by his Shakti (Maa Parvati) remains Shava (the dead one) because its the force (Shakti) that makes Lord Shiva to move or only shakti makes him 'Lord Shiva', the 'Eternal'.
Our ancient sages have never looked down upon females. They have rather considered them worthy of pooja and called them goddess like. Our classical books like Vedas, Puranas, Ramayana & Geeta etc. have never ever said them unworthy of worshipping. In all times they (females) have been worshipping Lord Shiva, Maa Durga and the saints and the gurus etc, so how can they be deprived of worshipping Lord Shani, who is the devotee of the Lord Shiva and Lord Hanuman, who is the devotee of Lord Ram.
