    Hindu Rituals during Lunar Eclipse

    Usually during a lunar eclipse, a fast (Upvaas) is observed by certain communities in Hindu religion. The fast begins about 9 hours before the beginning of the lunar eclipse.

    As per traditional Hindu lunar calendar, June 15th is Paush Poornima and the famous Magh Mela begins at Allahabad (Sangam in Prayag).

    People also take a bath in cold water and chant mantras dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Shiva like the Ashtakshara Mantra or Mrityunjaya Mantra. This is done whenever there is a Solar or Lunar eclipse. Pregnant women chant the Santana Gopala Mantra.
