of Saturn in Vedic astrology

Clad in blue, with dark blue body, with four hands, son of Sun, a terrible appearance, peaceable disposition, seated on a bull, with a leisurely gait, carrying in his hands a Trident, bow and Mace, with a precious sapphire in the crown of the head, the giver of good with a gesture of his hand, Yes he reveals to us the Divine Lord Saturn his mercy forever and ever.
