Four Saturdays in the Purattasi Month is considered very auspicious and that days special prayers are offered to Lord Venkateswara, Navagrahas (Nine Planets) and Lord Shani Bhagwan. According to Vedas, Lord Venkateswara’s divine presence had appeared on the earth in this month and He returned to Vaikundam (heavenly abode of Lord Vishnu) also in the month. Another version says that Lord Shani Bhagwan loses his powers in Purattasi month. So, the adverse aspects of Planet Shani or Saturn cannot create any trouble or problems.
Sage Narada wanted to know how devotees can worship Lord Venkateswara after his arrival to Vaikundam. Lord vishnu replied that people who observe fast and pray to Him on Saturdays in Purattasi month can eliminate poverty caused by Lord Shani during Purattasi month.
Usually, Saturday worship are auspicious for getting free from evil influences of Shani, it is easy way to please him on this day. Since, Lord Shani loses his powers in Purattasi month; he will not come in the way of worship dedicated to Lord Venkateswara. So, it’s easy to get blessings and grace from Lord in this month.
