Eclipse has a deep impact on the human body. It is said to alter many things in the behavior of the person. It is for this reason that our ancestors gave a lot of importance to many rituals during eclipse. However, most of the things are not known to many people and they simply watch it as an astronomical event.
You must remember that nothing in this world happens without a reason. If the Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse did not have any impact on planet Earth, then they would not occur at all. Whether we like it or not, every thing that happens around the Earth will have an impact on human beings and animals and plants.
Normally, the Kundalinee Energy is not aroused in a human being and it lies in a dormant state. In most people, it is very less to create any significant impact. This is due to the blockage in the Surya and Chandra Nadi. The Sushamna Nadi is not at all opened in most human beings. However, during Eclipse, a strange thing happens due to the alignment of the Sun , Moon and Earth. Both the Surya Nadi and Chandra Nadi work in a proper rhythm and there will be energy flow in the Sushumna Nadi. This leads to a higher meditative state and is considered very good for chanting mantras.
You should make the best use of Eclipse by chanting mantras. It is said that chanting mantras during eclipse will yield 1000 times the result when compared to normal days. You can complete the entire cycle of mantra chanting during any eclipse.
