God is not pleased by sycophancy. Ravana was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. But he was slain by God himself in Ramavatara, because Ravana aspired for other's woman. One should lead a life as God desires. Speaking truth, not hurting others, not yearning nor accepting bribe (unearned moneys), not stealing also are directive principles. It is because of the clients' inability to do such rituals, we engage priests to do the recitation on our behalf. It is always better for the person himself to perform remedial measures than engaging a priest nor undertaking on somebody's behalf. At times, when the close relative is too young (like an infant) or he has odd schedules at his job, it becomes necessary for the wife to do remedial measures on his behalf. Engaging priests is also on the similar lines. It should be seen that the priest is of good character. One should engage priest who is well versed in the mantras (as beeja mantras, particularly should not go wrong, no matter how many thousand times they are recited) and should have proper pronunciation. My friend, you must of heard of Namaskara mantras (also known as Navagraha mantras) and these can be recited in any dress and at any time as these do not contain any gayatri or beeja mantras. Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa has said, "If you go to God one step, he will come to you ten steps." Please shun away laziness nor do daiva dushana.
Prayer (japa, tapa, dhyana, shanti, pooja etc.,) is not a mere exercise to condition the mind. It has external influence also. In my humble practice as an astrologer as well as in my personal life, I have witnessed the power of prayer on several occasions. By observing certain austerity measures, (if one is already initiated into Gayatri mantra), any one can undertake shanti for any planets using beeja mantras or any other mantra s. But beeja mantras should NEVER go wrong at all and it requires lot of concentration. For instance, the beeja mantra is recited for sukra 20,000 times. There are other mantra s that can be used for conducting shanti - Gayatri mantra, Avahana mantra (as in Navagraha sukta of Rigveda). It is always better to be self reliant. It is not necessary that one should take the help of priests all the time. Remember, God does not have special preferences! Only your devotion (bhakti) is required, and not how much you spend. I insist that you should select some suitable mantras and recite yourself! There is nothing to be afraid of. Propitiation to planets is not black magic. In case of your inability to do on your own, you will have to engage a vedic pandit for conducting shanti. For shanti kriya, the active participation of the person concerned is important. As such, it is advisable to conduct shanti in the place where the person is. One should take care to engage a good priest who has excellent pronunciation and dedication. My learned clients, particularly from US, UK and Gulf countries approach me for conducting such shanti japa as they may not find a suitable person. After recitation of the beeja mantra, 10% of the same mantra is used to conduct tarpana. For conducting japa, the person is informed the dates on which these are conducted and he is required to conduct himself in suitable religious manner - abstinence from non-vegetarian food, alcoholic drinks and familial life. He is not supposed to attend the parties, cinema but recite the mantras of his choice for the same planet. Earlier, I used to conduct shanti kriya for planets. But, due to heavy work and paucity of time, I am not able to offer this service. I may please be excused.

I was wondering if have you been blessed to see good success with this for your clients? Can you just tell me how the recitation works, is it somehow said specifically for me in my name, and do you need a photo from me ( I have one but it is not recent)? I just hope to be educated by you first, and I am thinking seriously about this and will decide after hear from you.
Mantras and shanti kriya are the points of dispute. There are prayers in every religion. Muslims gather in masses and conduct prayers for the rain. Christians conduct mass healing prayers. Large number of miracles through such prayer meetings are from Philippines. A committee consisting of qualified doctors as well as missionaries conducted investigation and found that not all 1000 miracles did happen. It is not that all of them were faked but they found medical explanations. There was no concrete proof that prayers work. In an experiment one group was let known that they were being prayed for. These people showed speedy recovery. In the other group the patients participated in such prayers and the recovery rate was even good. In the third group there was no recovery at all - though they too were being prayed for! This means the person for whom the prayers (shanti, worship, pooja etc.,) are conducted should be able to receive the benefits. By prayers what we seek is a miracle - a concession. It is up to Him either to grant or not. Even after putting our wish list to God, we better give Him a free hand - Thy will be done. In Hindu worship, the pooja ends with ". श्रीमन्नारायणेति समर्पयामि" We do not put a demand but surrender to God.
Did I see success with my clients, that is to say, did God answer my prayers when I did several thousand recitations. Yes and No. There were astounding success - the man did not die, marriage did not end up in divorce, the couple were blessed with a child. There were miserable failures: one man did not get a good job nor he got married! But all the shantis were conducted in the same fashion with ardent faith, devotion, without mistakes and with great concern. I am not an agent of God. I pray only when I am told. Other than that when I do pooja I (and all the worshippers) pray for the whole world दैवीस्स्वस्तिरस्तुनः। स्वस्तिर्मानुषेभ्यः। ऊर्ध्वं जिगातु भेषजं। शं न्नो अस्तु द्विपदे। शं चतुष्पदे। ओं शांतिः शांतिः शांतिः॥ and चतुस्सागर पर्यंतं गोब्राह्मणेभ्यः शुभं भवतु। All Hindus do the same in all temples with mantra pushpa. Many Brothers and Pastors drive out evils in the name of Jesus. Muslims saints drive away Shaitan in the name of Bismillah. God works through me and it does not mean I can recommend your case to God. I pray on your behalf. John, the Baptist said of his contemporary Jesus that he was fit enough to touch Jesus' feet. When the disciples told Jesus that the disciples of John were driving away devils in the same fashion, Jesus said that they were doing good deeds and they should not be troubled! They are several others who do shanti pooja and I do not claim any superiority over them.
Being a well wisher or a paid servant is different. It is always good for the person himself to do these things. This should be first priority. I get a handful of coins if I pursue you to have shanti conducted by me alone! But my purpose of life will be defeated. I should make you independent. You should do these remedial measures yourself. You should be able to pray, you should be your well wisher, you should try to improve your life. That is why I tell my clients to search for a person in the locality, in a nearby temple so that they can participate in such pooja, shanti etc., If it is not possible for them to find a person then only I will take up shanti kriya for them.
These are done for the particular person. Just like in a registered document, the sankalpa (decision) before the recitation/pooja declares that on this day, for this purpose, on behalf of such a person born in such a gotra, by name and star etc, No photograph is required. On the days when the remedial measures are being done, (it would be nearly one week) you should participate. That means you too should be reciting any mantra of your choice or do pooja and abstain from meat, drinks, parties etc., Why only purohits, why shanti by certain mumbo- jumbo mantras in a dead language, some will ask. I should say, go to the top of your house, look around, you will see rituals in far away Brazil, in ancient Egypt, and in all sects and religions since 75000 years. The world is highly democratic (and also volatile), you can talk anything against Hindus and get away with it! Did I say 75000 years? Discovery of a caveman in Siberia during March 2013, has revised age of mankind from 40000 to 75000.
Hinduism is very ancient and highly evolved religion. Our ancients found that the rhythm in mantras are equally important. One research scholar in former Soviet Union subjected his patients to 12th chapter of Bhagawad geeta and without informing his patients fed directly to the brain with electrodes. They never heard anything nor did they know what it was. Yet, they showed speedy recovery! I do not refer to pseudo-scientific papers or hearsays. After some years, in the same university the speedy curing was attributed to the rhythm in the music and same effects were achieved by recitation of numbers! In another recorded experiment in the US, the patients were divided into three groups - one group was of non-believers, the other two groups were of believers. Only one group of believers was told that they were being prayed for, they too participated in prayers by some 100 people in the nearby local church, while one group of believers and the non-believers were told that they were being prayed for. There was no speedy recovery in the group of believers who were not told of prayers and the non-believers. There was remarkable speed in recovery process in case of believers who participated in prayers. Belief in Almighty adds to you strength and gives the entry to the other dimension. If you believe in God, you are saved.
Incidentally, recent statistics in April, 2013 showed that mental illness in religious persons are more! The followers of cults and modern schools showed traits of mental illness but the followers of well established religions like Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Jainism or Buddhism etc., did not show this tendency. The conventional religions have many clusters of ideas and are able to support you when you are in distress, which is not the case with the modern schools. They are half baked, raw and ill formed, they simply put a pyramid, a Buddha some air into your spiritual yearning. You have lived for long time successfully and they teach you 'Heart of Living' than the Heart of Loving! Did not He run away from cyclone hit area, afraid of his own life that one more cyclone was on its way? (it is just a gossip). Due to our firm faith to the God incarnate ('there is glow of innocence in his eyes'), we refuse to believe the reports of PTI and UNI news agencies. Even those who read these things, simply bury the current affairs into old history sheets! The more Sri Mad Acharya constructs palatial buildings on leased or grabbed lands (it does not matter), the more funds he gets to grow, even from the UN! Keep away from such schools and also from the babas who claim to solve your problems in 48 hours with some ashes or those mathematicians who swallowed silver Ganesh idol in their young age, still stuck up in their guts!
Like human beings the religions are also subjected to evolution. Hinduism practiced untouchability towards another sect born in the same nation while cows, monkeys and snakes were their Gods. They did not see God in the fellow human being. Mahatma Gandhi brought dignity to lower classes and put an end to this horrible religious practice, as Buddhism stopped slaughtering of animals in yagas. In India women were second class citizens - though every Brahmin recites Gayatri mantra. Thanks to British, they brought democracy and equal rights to India. Abraham Lincoln who abolished slavery is not a Brahmin. The established religions are also riddled with paradoxes yet, in individual plane they are far more better than modern cults. उद्धारेत् आत्मन्त्मानां | As the great thinker Sri Jiddu Krishna Murti puts it - discover your own religion based on all religious thoughts.
Coming to the point, I recommend the mantras for shani. Since Saturn is the 8th lord, it is better for you to recite the beeja mantras. Go slow, get the exact pronunciation. There is voice file also to help you. Daily recite either the gayatri or beeja mantra for Saturn everyday 108 times. You require a strong dose and so normal other mantras like namaskara etc., do not have much effect. Hanumanji when prayed gives you much needed courage, drives away evil sprits. It is also better to recite some simple mantras for sun also as he is posited in the 8th house. Do you really require additional support of a shanti right now? No, with above remedial measures you can continue. The situation is not worse. But when there is transit of Saturn over moon sign contact priests of good nature in local temples so that you can participate in shanti kriya.
