Significance of early morning worship or meditation
Early morning is called Brahma Muhurtham, which means that it is the time to worship God. At that time, all the people are in deep sleep and nobody will disturb you. The atmosphere is sacred because the vibrations of mind involved in world matters are not emitted from the people since they are in deep sleep. Mind is also a form of energy. Mind disappears in deep sleep. The atmosphere is not polluted by the radiations of worldly feelings. At that time devotees awake and pray God. Their pure mental rays pervade all over the world and make the time sacred. Thus it becomes congenial and encouraging atmosphere.
After sunrise people awake and the materialistic mental radiations are emitted through their physical senses. The atmosphere is polluted. People will disturb you dragging you to materialistic discussions. Even by seeing face, you will be affected. If you see a devotee, you become sacred. The mind and body are inter-related. Since mind is energy and energy is matter, even if you see the body, the mind in that body is emitted out affecting you. Therefore, avoid even the vision of materialistic people, not to say about their touch, conversation and co-living.
After sunrise when you worship God, close your eyes to avoid such people. But, their mental radiations spread all over the cosmos and are inevitable. It is better to walk in the early morning while singing devotional songs. Morning walk is good for health. Apart from this, the mind desires dynamic condition of the body. The body was in static condition all over the night. Mind is always for a change. Satisfy the mind and you should not unnecessarily control the mind when it is not necessary.
You can pray God even without bath. Veda, Gita and the very first verse of Sandhyavandanam say that God can be worshipped irrespective of physical formalities. After some time body is tired and the mind needs rest. By that time, sunrise is over. Now you sit at a place and worship God closing your eyes. Thus the time has its own invisible effect on the spiritual effort. Sattvam is prominent in the early morning. Rajas is prominent in the day time. Tamas is prominent in the night. Therefore early morning is the divine time called as Brahma Muhurtham.

I've seen this a lot. As a kind even i was effected by this.
people think that a person who forms centre of attraction at any place/gathering is usually effected by 'evil eyes' of jealous people and his/her health is effected soon.
In modern linguistics it is 'casting an evil-eye' . Science explains it as the flow of negativity that affects the person or object towards which it is directed.
Every thought form is associated with energy, just as blessings and good thoughts have a positive auraabout them, so also negative emotions harness harmful or negative energy.Sources of these negative energies are, people who give way to:
Sense of discrimination/comparison : the feeling that other people are better than you, thereby leading to frustrations.
Spirit of vengeance/retaliation : people who curse spitefully seeing the prosperity of their rivals.These emotions may not manifest or surface out but their presence even at the subconscious level can be destructive.
Evil eye casting results in:
2. Lack of interest
3. Sudden illness
4. Prolonged illness (without any reason).
The Vedic perspective
The vedas have described four kinds of people
1. The Satpurushas: who help others without caring for their own well-being
2. The Samanyas: they help considering the position of the self
3. Manushya Rakshasas: who extract benefits by disturbing others welfare
4. People who harm others without any purpose
According to the vedas, people who belong to the last two categories(described above) are most likely to cast an evil eye.
Power of evil eye
The ominous power of Dhristi can be subtle or immense depending upon the depth of negative emotions. Stronger the emotions greater will be the energy released. This energy can work at the Material level : An evil-eye on other\'s possessions like wealth, property, and other accessories which consequently deplete the victims of their resources.
Physical and the psychological level : The \'hale and hearty\' suddenly succumb to ill-health, or happiness and peace of mind is lost. These are some of the nasty effects of evil eye
Witchcraft, black magicetc. are advanced manifestations of evil eye.
Traditional methods for getting rid of evil eye
Material level: Some fruits like lemon, watermelon and coconut have the capacity to absorb negative energy.
For eg. A new automobile is run over lemons before it starts its journey. Watermelons are hung at the gates of houses and babies are smeared with collyrium on the forehead and the cheek to ward off evil.
(maybe using pumpkins for halloween has something to do with this)
Physical level: Burning camphor, when brought near any person burns out all the negativity around the person. It is necessary that the mind get tuned (in order to absorb the negative energy) to these media (lemons, coconuts, collyrium) of evil eye so that they serve the desired purpose.
The evil that is cast due to black magic or witchcraft needs more powerful remedies

About Tirumala temple, Ayyappa Deeksha and Saturn Remedy
The sacred temple of Sri BALAJI is located on the seventh peak of the Tirupati Hills. The world famous temple of Sri Venkateswara has gained unique sanctity among the Hindus. Rig Veda and Asthadasa Puranas mention that Lord Venkateshwara is the bestower of many boons and of the unending benefits of a pilgrimage to Tirumala. The temple has a self manifested idol of Vishnu. For washing away oneâ€™s sins in Kalayuga, having a darshan of Lord Venkateshwara of the 7 hills is necessary.
The Pallavas of Kancheepuram, the Cholas of Thanjavur, the Pandyas of Madurai, and the kings and chieftains of Vijayanagar (14th - 15th century AD) were great devotees of the Lord. The rulers of Vijayanagar dynasty made great contributions to the temple Sri Krishnadevaraya had statues of himself and his consorts installed at the portals of the temple, and these statues can be seen to this day.
The temple of Balaji is one of richest Temple. Thousands of pilgrims all over the world, donate money, gold and gifts. Thousands visit the Temple everyday and on important religious occasions, lakhs of pilgrims pay homage at the Sanctum Sanctorum of the Temple.
All the great dynasties of rulers of the southern peninsula have paid homage to Lord Sri Venkateswara in this ancient shrine. The Pallavas of Kancheepuram, the Cholas of Thanjavur, the Pandyas of Madurai, and the kings and chieftains of Vijayanagar (14th - 15th century AD) were devotees of the Lord. It was during the rule of the Vijayanagar dynasty that the contributions to the temple increased. Sri Krishnadevaraya had statues of himself and his consorts installed at the portals of the temple, and these statues can be seen to this day.
Lord Venkateswara or Balaji is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu himself. It is believed that he came to reside on the southern bank of Swami Pushkarni, a tank, which passes by Tirumala.
The seven hills around Tirumala-Tirupati are also known as Sapthagiri after the seven hoods of Sheshnag â€“ the cosmic serpent. The temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatadri.
According one legend, as Saint Ramanuja born in 11th Century AD climbed the seven hills of Tirupati, Lord Srinivas- another name for Lord Venkateswara- appeared before him and gave him his blessings. And after that he is believed to have been blessed to live till the age of 120 years to spread the gospel of Sri Venkateswara.
The daily program starts with \'Suprabhatam\' (awakening the Lord) at 2:30 in the morning and end with the \'Ekanta Seva\' (putting the Lord to sleep) at one in the night
Saturn Remedy at TIRUMALA TIRUPATHI
Lord Balaji of Tirumala Tirupathi is the Parihara Kshetram, place of Remedy, for those afflicted by Saturn or under the influence of Saturn.
Saturn is known as â€˜Shanai shchara\' , (slow moving , in Sanskrit). Sani is the son of Sun and Chaya devi (shadow) and half brother of Yama. Saturn is identified with metal Iron, Tree is The Prosopis Spicigera (Sami Tree) - known as Vanni, Flower is karungkuvalai. The Vehicle known as Vahana is Crow and Animals are Dogs, Buffalos, monkeys. Sani is of black colour and wears black/blue clothes, and the direction denoted is West. Taste is Astringant. Athi Devata is Yama. Sani owns Makara and Kumba Rasis. Saturn is planet of Justice and implements the Law of Karma and Dharma. Blue Sapphire is the gem for Saturn. Element Is Air. In Numerology, number 8 is ruled by Saturn.
Saturn is a planet of Justice, Truth, and hard work. Sani considers own father, Sun, as greatest enemy. Saturn is linked with Black Magic, Loneliness, and Separation. Saturn deals with reality and sufferings. Saturn causes Cancer disease.
Purana says Sani is opened with half his eyes and Sani is a great devotee of Lord Krishna. Let us see the connections between Sani Graha and Lord Srinivasar of Tirumala.
Lord Srinivasa took his avatar in Purattasi when Sani is said to reduce his negative power during this month as he is pleased with the Pithru Kaaryams and Deva Kaaryams are peformed. worshipping Vishnu, Fasting on Purattasi Saturday would please Sani graha.
During the Month of Purattasi, Pithru kaaryam are performed as Mahalaya Paksha Tarpanam with water and Gingelly seeds to please Pithrus who descent to earth to their ordained rites from their descendants as Kanya Rasi represent South (dakshinayanam)since Pitru Loka is in southern Hemisphere.
On Mahalaya Amavasya day, Hindus worship and give offerings to Ancestors. Doing oneâ€™s duty to Pitrus is very important, or else, this will result in Pitru dosham, giving great sufferings - mentally retarded children are born to people with Pitru dosham. Sani is pleased during this period when food is offered to Ancestors in Different forms as Sun is Pitru karagha and father of Sani graha.
Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) Avatar star is Sravanam which is in Makara Rasi owned by Saturn. Makara Rasi also denotes Earth in element and denotes our Karma Bhumi.
On First Seva of Suprabhatam, the very first opening of golden Door of Moolavar is done by a Golla (cow herder-Edayan) in the presence of Priests from Jeer Mutt. This honour of giving first darshan to a shepherd is for his community services to Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) when he was in penance in the Hills. Cowherds, gesture to them on first seva are the indications of Sanis karagathvam.
Sage Bhrigu, who went on a mission to find out the most Satvic Nature among Trio, having failed to see this quality with Brahma and Sivan, came to Lord Vishnu and finding him in Yoga Nidhra without bothering him, kicked upon Lord chest which is the abode of Lakshmi. Sri Vishnu apologised to Bhrigu for hurting his feet which hit the hard chest and hence massaged the feet of sage. By this act of the Lord, Goddess Lakshmi felt humiliated and Insulted and left the Vaikuntam to the Earth. Disgrace, Insults Humiliation, thus arised are due to Sanis karagathvam.
Lord Srinivasar was wandering the Earth without food and shelter in search of Goddess Lakshmi..He finally reached Sheshadhri and took shelter in an Ant-hill to Meditate. Desperation,wandering without food,disappointment are Sanis karagam.
Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) Stayed in an Ant-Hill Under a Tamarind tree at Seshachalam and came out only to protect Cow and Calf (Brahma and Shiva) when a Shepherd tried to hit them, Emperuman Received the Blow on his Head and bleeded. Hence Golden Kireetam Presented by Akasa Raja is adorned on Fridays to Heal this injury. Ant Hill, Tamarind Tree and compassion in receiving the blow are due to Sani.
Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) Borrowed money from Kuberan for his marriage with Padmavathi by signing a Promissory note to pay with interest duly prepared by Brahma, witness signed by Siva and a peepal tree known as Ashwathm. Kubera is mentioned in Vedas as â€˜Chief of spirit of darkness and described as Dwarf, with pot-belly, humpback, deformed ugly body with eight teeth, three legs and one small eye and a normal one. He is the Custodian of Nava nidhis of wealth to souls and half brother of Ravana. Permanent Debt, Mortgage and Financier, Ugly Description shows the influence of Sani graha.
Due to Own Sankalpam, Lord Srinivasar is away from his consort Padmavathi and stands alone in Tirumala while Thayar is in Thiruchanur Separately. Similarly Tirumala Hill is isolated from outside influence and confined to Spirituality. Sani Denotes Isolation, Seperation, spirituality.
Tirumala is the only Hamlet in the world that has Four Dams for the tiny Town spread within a radius of 3 KM. All Four Dams were constructed on Holy Theerthams to meet the water Needs of town. Sani denotes Dams, Irrigation, Reservoir that retard/ slow/Regulate/reduce the Flow of Water.
Tirumala is the largest Collection Center in the World for Human Hair and Hair is Sanis karagathvam.
Thirumala Tirupathi Devasthaanam (TTD) renders many Social Scheme like Free Food to all Devotees, Free accommodation, Free transport services, Carrying Luggage freely from downhill for devotees climbing hill on foot, Yearly One Lac Free Marriages, Rehabilitation centers for Blind, Deaf, Orphan Children, Old Aged Homes for Destitutes, Free medical treatment for poor, Free distribution of spectacles for old people, Hospitals, schools and colleges for socially backward and downtrodden people children are few to be mentioned. This Coincides with the Social outlook of Sani graha caring for poorer, aged, handicapped and people of ill-health besides the socially backward section.
Dhruvabera(moolavar) idol does not conform to any agamic rule as Lord is above all rules with self manifested â€˜svayambhooâ€™ with his eyes are in â€˜sama drishtiâ€™ showing divine grace to devotees. Lord subjected himself to undergo â€˜Self Testâ€™ to Re-establish through Sri Ramanuja Muni that He is None other than Sriman Narayanan himself when doubts were raised then by few section. Also Uthsavar Malayappa swami is â€˜svayambhoo murtiâ€™ (self manifested) when this idol was located in a place called â€˜malayappan konaiâ€™ in hill. So he is called as â€˜malai kuniya Ninra Perumalâ€. This Matches the guna of Sani in â€˜self testingâ€™ for TRUTH through Sanyasi as Truth and sages are denoted by Sani graha.
Sani graha in this Kaliyuga subjects us to undergo law of karma and makes us accept reality and finally leads us to the path of Dharma
Those horoscopes afflicted by Sunâ€“Sani conjunction or aspect, or exalted Sun aspecting exalted Saturn or a debilitated Saturn or under the influence of Saturn due to Dasa, Bukhthi, Sade Satti, Janma Sani or Astama Sani are advised a visit to Tirumala on Saturday preferably in Purattasi and on kaisika Dvadasi day to worship Ugra Srinivasar with Prayaga Chakra in hand with his consorts when he is taken out on procession before Sun rise in wee hours would help them overcome difficulties.
People are encouraged to visit Tirumala on the day of Ekadasi in the month of Vaikunta, at which time all pilgrims in the abode of God will be forgiven of all their sins. They also would definitely attain salvation
