Getting Footwear Stolen is Auspicious
2. What is the Actual Meaning of Losing Footwear?
As our religious scriptures say, it is good when footwear being stolen at the temple of Lord Shiva. But this can be attributed only to the footwear made of leather. We know that Lord Shani is associated with feet and skin. So, Lord Shani resides in footwear made of leather. So it is said that the malefic effects of Planet Shani will be warded off if you lose your footwear. So a strong belief developed in people that it is always good to lose footwear.
