“Moon signifies Mind and lack of light on Moon would make Six Inner Enemies (desire, anger, attachment, greed, jealousy and ego) more active; hence disturbing the mind. If it’s not guarded then the contemplated negative thoughts could manifest into undesirable actions resulting into negative Karma. It’s better to absorb the Mind into sacred activities and contemplate on God which would help to you conquer the Six Inner Enemies”
What Is a Lunar Eclipse?
Earth orbits the Sun and the Moon orbits the Earth. Whenever, the Earth lines up directly between the Sun and the Moon, it blocks the light from Sun to Moon. Here Earth’s shadow falls upon the Moon. This is called Lunar Eclipse. Hence, a lunar eclipse can occur only the night of a Full Moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon’s location relative to its orbital nodes.
What is Partial Lunar Eclipse?
A Partial Lunar Eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon, but they are not precisely aligned; only part of the Moon’s visible surface moves into the Earth’s shadow.
What are Umbra and Penumbra?
The Umbra (Latin for “shadow”) is the innermost and darkest part of a shadow, where the Sun is completely blocked by the occluding body. An observer in the umbra experiences a Total Eclipse. The Penumbra (Latin for “almost”) is the region in which only a portion of the Sun is obscured by the occluding body. An observer in the penumbra experiences a Partial Eclipse
What is Sutak?
Sutak is certain duration of time before Solar and Lunar Eclipse. Duration of Sutak depends upon the observable Sunrise & Sunset of the place at the time of eclipse. At average, it is observed for 12 hours before Solar Eclipse and for 9 hours before Lunar Eclipse.
What happens during Sutak and Eclipse?
It’s said that the earth’s energy mistakes the eclipse as a full cycle of the Moon. It’s believed that during Sutak the atmosphere starts getting contaminated with harmful energies of North Node & South Nodes of the Moon (called Rahu & Ketu in Vedic Astrology respectively). During Sutak Biorhythmic, Gravitational, Physiological, Emotional and Neurological fluctuations start taking place and last till end of Eclipse. Also, logically speaking, the cooked food goes through the phases of its deterioration much more rapidly in a subtle way than it does on a normal day.

In other words as in point 3, Mind is connected with the Moon; the Body is connected with the Earth and the Sun is connected with both. The time when all three come in alignment, it is believed to be good time for spiritual practices. It is not a good time to eat or indulge in pleasures. It is a good time to conserve energy. So, from the ancient times it is said that you should not eat during the eclipse, and you should meditate. Eclipses are more useful for spiritual practices. This is the best way to spend time during an eclipse as the meditation and contemplation can go much be deeper
It is highly recommend to chant Mantra chanted during the Eclipse time as this gives 10000 times more effects
Highly recommended Mantra to chant during Eclipse is “Om Namo Narayanaya Namo Namaha”
“The mind is the Moon, the intelligence is the Sun;
see that they do not suffer from Eclipse.
Then, you are safe.
Do not worry when something happens in the outer sky;
worry, when the shadow of some dark desire,
some foul passion, some monstrous emotion,
some fell intention, casts its evil gloom over your inner sky.
See that the splendour of the Lord,
the cool rays of His Grace are not dimmed in the recesses of your heart.
