THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF ECLIPSE
Sun & Moon both are sources of light on our planet & in our life also. During the Eclipse this light is covered by Dark Energy. That is why eclipse is considered In-Auspicious for any work, except Prayers.
If, Eclipse is Visible at your place then one has to follow Rituals for it. If it is Not-Visible at your place then you don’t need to follow Rituals, BUT INSTEAD, YOU CAN UTILISE THAT TIME FOR PRAYERS.
