What is Lunar Eclipse or Chandra Grahana? We call it Chandra Grahana or Lunar Eclipse when the earth comes between the sun and the moon.    This will occur only when the sun, earth and the moon are aligned exactly, that will be always on a full moon (Pournami) day.

What is Vedaramba? This is a period after start of  which period, we must not take eat/drink any thing. This will be 9 hours prior to Chandra Grahana and 12 hours before Surya Grahana, respectively.

Why we are keeping Darba on all the items during Grahana? –   Darba is born from the body of Varaha devaru.   In Darba, there is sannidhana of Srihari, Brahma and Rudradevaru.  So, Darba is always pure.    During Grahana, all these items like milk, curds, vegetables, which are being kept will loose their power and becomes unusable.  But with the use of Darba being kept on these items, their shuddatwa will be maintained and one can use the same after Grahana also.

Kethugrasta Chandragrahana –  Who is Kethu? During  Samudra Mathana,  when Mohini roopi Srihari was distributing the amrutha, one daithya by name Svarbhanu,  came in a disguise and sat among the devate’s row.   Srihari gave him Amrutha also.  At that time Sun and Moon, {ಸೂರ್ಯಚಂದ್ರರು} on seeing that Swarbhanu has come in Devate’s row and taking amrutha, complained to Mohini, when Srihari through his Sudarshana removed the head of that daithya.  Actually that daithya had done penance asking for Amrutha to be falling to his mouth.  As such, Srihari had allowed Amrutha to be swallowed upto its mouth, but it didn’t enter beyond mouth, Srihari had removed his head.  As such, the head of the daithya was fixed to a snake’s body to become “Rahu”, and the other portion without head is called as “Kethu”.   To take a revenge on Surya Chandraru,  Rahu tries to swallow Surya and Kethu tries to swallow Moon during Surya Grahana and Chandra Grahana respectively.  That is why the eclipses are termed as Rahugrasta Suryagrahana and Kethugrasta Chandragrahana.

Clothes kept in Madi (ಮಡಿ) before Grahana are not to be used after Grahana. After Grahana, do snaana and clothes to be kept freshly.  “ಗ್ರಹಣಪೂರ್ವದಲ್ಲಿ ಒಣಗು ಹಾಕಿದ್ದ ಮಡಿ ಬಟ್ಟೆ ಗ್ರಹಣದ ನಂತರ ಬರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ.  ಮತ್ತೆ ಸ್ನಾನಾನಂತರ ಬೇರೆಯಾಗಿ ಒಣಗಿಹಾಕಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು.”

Rajaswala strees –

Even the Rajaswala ladies must observe Grahana snaana – But they must have water poured by somebody to a bucket and from that bucket they must take bath. They must not squeezout . They shall sit in the wet cloth itself and do dhyana.

Effect of Grahana :

Grahana will have different effects on different people. Based on respective rashees, different effects are there for each rashi.
Shubha Phala – Grahana may give you some good result for you
Mishra phala – As the name indicates it will be both Shubha+ ashubha
Ashubha Phala- Grahana may harm your progress.

But just hearing this don’t get panic.

There are so many suggestions for overcoming the Ashubha Phala which you can do –
Even if your Rashi is not having Ashubha Phala, please do all that is mentioned below to get maximum punya phala during Grahana

Even if your Rashi is not having Ashubha Phala, please do all that is mentioned below to get maximum punya phala during Grahana

Gents – Do more Gayathri Japa as much as possible,
Ladies Chant – Vijayarayara kavacha, Madhwanama, Keshavanama, etc
Gents – Do Gayatri Japa as much as possible, Do parayanha of Sarva moola, Sumadhwa Vijaya, Vayustuti, etc., Chant Vishnu Sahasra Naama /Harivayustuti/ Shanaishcharakrutha Narasimha Stotra, Navagraha Stotra

Do yathashakti daana – During Grahana we must do daanaas – Godaana, Suvarna Daana, Bhoodana, dhaanya dhaana (yathaashakthi.) Even though it is said that Silver/Gold Daana –  Don’t borrow and do the daana.  Whatever you have you can do daana – Even 1 Rupee with Yatashakthi will have the same punya as that of a Silver/gold/bhoodaana.

 Dos/Don’ts for during and before  &  after Grahana

  10. During Grahana period do as much japa as possible, do paarayana of Vayustuthi, Rayara Stotra, Sumadhwa Vijaya, etc (depending upon the time available).  Those who does not know Rayara Stotra,  and ladies atleast then can chant  –
