Significance of Sani Trayodasi
Sani expressed his gratitude for his release by Hanuman from Ravana's prison at the time of Lanka Dahanam. He also requested forgiveness for his misbehavior when He tried to effect him in his Zodiac. To heal his wounds caused by Hanuman , Saturn desires abhisekam with sesame seed oil. Therefore for those who perform oil abhisekam to Saturn on Sani Trayodasi the radiation of Saturn will be cooled down and Sani will bless them.
