The LIST of Beneficial Actions (Do’s) and Precautions (Don’ts) to be following during this Eclipse:


  • If Pregnant, take due precautions for mother and child’s well-being.
  • It is best not to step outside during eclipse time, especially, if pregnant – because eclipses are considered to be harmful. Especially for the mother-to-be and the unborn child.
  • Do not expose yourself to the moon.
  • Keep a coconut in the mandir.
    Close the doors of your mandir, after placing a coconut inside.
    No Puja should be done during the eclipse.
    After the Eclipse – throw the coconut in flowing water.
  • Do not leave any food items outside.
  • In cooked items, add a tulsi leaf and then place it inside the fridge, etc.
  • Even in drinking water, add a tulsi leaf.
    – This prevents negative energies from accumulating into your food.
  • Half an hour before the Lunar Eclipse, take a cotton thread the length of your height and tape it on the wall.
  • If you lie down during the duration of the Eclipse, try and lie straight. Use a woollen cloth to lie on, do not use a cotton sheet.
  • Keep your windows and doors closed so that no harmful vibrations can enter your house.
  • This is an optimal day for clearing your baggage, being introspective, and pacifying your ancestors.
  • The Lunar Eclipse will impact your mind, emotions, desires, and feeling because the Moon is afflicted. It will make you feel emotionally weak.
  • It is best to meditate and chant mantras on this day.
  • Do NOT start anything new on Lunar Eclipse day.
  • The alignment of the Planets during the eclipse will be such that your more humane side will come to the fore.
  • Performing spiritual practices, contemplation, meditation, tarpanam for your ancestors, and chanting will bring multiple benefits.


Chanting these MANTRAS will be beneficial on this day:

  • “Om Namah Shivay”
  • “Vishnu Sahasranam”
  • “Om Namo Narayana”
  • The Gayatri Mantra

It is recommended to chant a mantra 108 times and then, further if you want, then chant in multiples of 108.

After the Eclipse, have a bath with your clothes on, as they too would have picked up the negative vibrations of the eclipse.

Clean your house and mandir/temple. Light a fire (a small one in your havan kund is ideal) – add a little camphor to it, and take it around your house.

Then go to the temple, pray and do some daan/charity. You must give something to the pujari/priest.
