  • Nothing should be cut, peeled, splashed or exposed during the eclipse.
  • During the eclipse, a lot of negativity spreads all around, so wash and put Kush or Tulsi leaves or Doob in all the water pots, milk and curd in the house and after the eclipse is over, the Doob should be removed and thrown away.
  • During this, the temple of God should be covered even in the house. 
  • When the eclipse starts, take out some grains and any old worn cloth and keep it aside and when the eclipse ends then donate that cloth and grain with respect to a cleaning worker. This will give you auspicious results.
