SOLAR ECLIPSE DO’S and DON’TS:
In India, people usually prefer to stay indoors and not consume any food items during the time of the Grahan or eclipse. Also, Darbha grass or Tulsi leaves are put in eatables and water to prevent the ill effects of the Grahan. Many believe in taking a bath after the eclipse is over and changing into new clothes.
Chanting mantras dedicated to the sun god is another practice followed by many households in the country.
Especially, pregnant women are asked to stay indoors and chant the Santana Gopala Mantra.
Many refrain from drinking water during the time period of the eclipse.
Also, the preparation of food or eating is prohibited during the Grahan. Commencing any auspicious task is avoided by many as well.
(Take Note: The eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time. It will cause permanent damage to the eyes leading to blindness even when the moon covers most portion of the Sun.)
