Pregnancy and Eclipse: Scientific Reasons behind Pregnant Care during Surya Grahan, Chandra Grahan

There will be some effects from solar eclipse & lunar eclipse on pregnant women and their pregnancy. As per Hinduism and some other cultures in the world, pregnant women should take prior care during Grahan. But it also has some scientific reasons. Dr. Aprana Saxena has researched on some pregnant rats that are affected with the radioactive rays during the time of Sampoorn Surya Grahan (Total Solar Eclipse).

Why Pregnancy of a woman is affected – Why should a pregnant woman should take care during Grahan or Eclipse?

Dr. Aparna Saxena has found that some of the rats which were examined by her were delivered small-sized babies, some other affected rats had undergone abortion and some other rats delivered disabled and abnormal babies. It has to be noted that some of the affected rats delivered baby rats which have ruptured bone marrow.

Not only animals and human, Grahan also affects plants. Some researches said that Onion and Sorghum plants were affected by the Eclipse. According to the research of Dr. S.P. Goswami and Usha Goswami, Sea animals are also affected with the rays during Grahan. During the time of Grahan, X- rays are released from Sun and Moon. The X- rays can affect the licing world. This phenomenon is referred as ‘Cosmic radiation.

These scientific researches prove that the rituals and aachars followed by a pregnant woman during Grahanam have scientific evidences. It also proves that Hinduism is not an only a religion but the healthy way of human living and the existence of the world.

  4. hi firstly if u believe in god u wont bring scientific research in that, thats why we believe . never the less we have scientifc proof of our religion which are auspicious sights with specific items that are written in our religious books almost evry place and chapter can be sighted in india and items such as the kindom of ayodhya d burnt lanka of demon ravana still exists the bridge hanuman built with limestone exist d himalayan mountain and i can list hundreds on my own i havent seen it myself but i believe and someday i will go to india to pay respect. we can pray to a form or no form once our prayers are meant for god they will be well recieve it is up to u i c god in evrything especially natural sun moon sea earth. i worship idols wen i go to temple and i dont have to my prayers are not for the clay in front of me but for wat it represents it represents my lord and with out it i can still prayers and connect whereva wheneva. as i told someone i witness many miracles in trinidad with murtis but if u dont believe dont waste time wit it just pray to any form of god u believe in i believe my prayers n ur r goin in the same placed to God. ihope that answers ur question.

  5. we hindus are so fortunate to know what forms the lord took to set examples for humans to live a righteous life. we have books and tons of eveidence we have spirituals sights such as the bridge in india ayodhya lankha and the list goes on. i am a hindu i live in trinidad in the caribbean among many creed and races i believe in one god that takes various forms hence the different devis and devas and also explains jesus allah etc. it does mean we worship idols but we express our pride and love by having them to show how beautiful forms God took when he was on earth. i witnessed sindoor falling from the forehead of a durga murti and i am 21 i was younger then i also fed a ganesh murti milk i barely touch the spoon n there were no leaks i almost didnt believe that part but i know anything is posible because god whoever he is he exist. form or formless we can pray in whateva way we feel the connection so i wont judge anyones form of prayer. i worship the sum moon earth idols i go church n pray too i pray at sea for kartik i prayer wheneva whereva once i could speak to God in my way he is the creator my prayers will be well recieved and so will urs no matter where u are.

  7. The whole article is total bullshit!

    There’re a whole lot of lies in it to justify superstitious beliefs.

    Btw, who’re these so-called doctors, Dr. Aparna Sexana, S.P. Goswami & Usha Goswami, whose so-called research is being used by this site to justify superstition. Have they got their research results “peer-reviewed”? Have they written any articles on their research in any scientific journals?

    If indeed its true then the news about their researches should have been published in all national dailies by now. I do not think I’ve come across any such news anywhere.

    More importantly, proponents of Hinduism have this dubious habit of using words like “science” & “scientific causes” to justify long-held blind beliefs.

    Only fools will fall for them!

  8. hai…
    i am 3 months pregnant. i take precaution from 5.00 pm to 10.30 pm during lunar eclips on december 10 2011.but after 10.30 pm i took bath with out knowing the actual duration of eclips.i am so fear please tell me is there any ill affects will cause are not? my native place is india.is there any problem for me.

  9. Indians are so freaking stupid you can find it at the end of the first paragraph where it says that it proves that Hinduism is not only ….. It didn’t prove anything it didn’t even prove whether or not those researches are valid any ways what can expect from an Indian.

  10. let us know the dates, by if any chance is there any surya grahan , chandra grahan in the year 2012. Do let us know by calender dates.

  11. people living in this 21st century are superstitious about solar and lunar eclipse and the effect on a pregnant women,the people who are delivering the dos and dont during eclipses,i am sure dont have any prove,but are so confident about their believes.

  12. dear sir,

    my wife is pregnant( 4 month) i want to know is that grahan will effect,what are the precaution we have to take during that,what is time in india,how long we two have to take care,can u tell me total period

  13. If given in Universal Time i.e. GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). We need to calculate local time according to it..

  14. Surya or chandra grahan is on universal times right? If they say at 1:10pm then that means wherever you are and it’s 1:10pm then you follow that time.

  15. Hi I am pregnant and live in Australia. Could you confirm me the timing of Surya Grahan for 4th of Jan 2011 as per Australian time.

  16. my family is from mexico. although we come form different countries are believes are almost similar. I’m pregnant and
    my due date is June 26,2010.Due to Mayan cultures, most pregnant women stay indoors and also use red ribbon around their belly. I’m young, but the stories told my grandma of moms who didn’t protect themselves during an eclipse is startling. Babies born with deformities on lip or face,and miscarriages. I am a little worried can you offer other tips on protection. thanks..

  17. @divya …not only in Hinduism, even roman Catholics have many superstitions associated with eclipses,both lunar and solar. recall movies like hell boy where Nazis believed that during eclipses the doors to hell and evil will be revealed to the mortals. though i don’t agree with dr.saxena’s research completely, i also think that all the advice should be taken with a pinch of salt! After all Hinduism,Christianity and in fact all centuries old religion have their pearls of wisdom after much research….. and i would here also take the opportunity to remind that all religions aim at unifying ppl,it is us who have compartmentalized the do’s and dont’s and made it religion specific.

  18. Finally, the last comment made some sense in this whole page. I was also wondering if any of Aparna Saxena’s rats gave birth to normal babies… If not, is she sure that she was giving the mommy rats a good diet? there are places in the world where people have not even heard of this myth of avoiding solar eclipses at the time of pregnancy… and if there was any truth in eclipse being harmful for the unborn baby, wouldn’t all the kids born in that region be deformed, as there are at least 2 eclipses every year…
    no one wants to take any risk with the pregnancy… so they just keep listening to all the superstitions associated with pregnancy… you know… the just in case philosophy…

  19. Who is Dr. Aparna Saxena, where is the link to her work ? Has this work been peer reviewed and accepted by any renowned medical body ?

  20. i am pregnant of only 3 months what should i do or not? i am getting feared for my baby and future. how can i sit for 3 or 4 hours without move..

  21. @Virender Kumar
    Hi Virender…
    if you could see this… plz reach out to me with your any kind of question regarding Hinduism… may be i could explain you everything… u have not provided any contact here.

    I’m not a Baba or guru… a young common man but have explored reasoning behind Hinduism to a greater extend and found it awesome…

    Regards

  22. During the chandra Graganam applicable for all region pregnant women or Hindu????????. shall pregnant women go outside traveling on the time of Grahanam?

  23. I want to know whether Chandra Grahan on December 31, 2009 is visible in South India. will it be affect eyes when we see with naked eyes.

  24. Good information about Pregnant women and Eclipse. Pregnant care is must take during Grahan. There is no loss with performing these rituals or traditions or whatever we say.

  25. Hi Naveen,

    I want to know why Hindus do Vigraharadhana. What is the chief purpose behind worshipping Murtis. Is there any scientific reason apart from ritualistic predictions.

  26. I am a hindu from Pakistan. I can not concentrate on my relegion because I am living in Pakistan a Muslim Country, but even then I love my country. People mostly hate hindus arround our country except those who share life with us. We are facing a lot of troubles with respect to religious guidance. I mostly recite Guru Giranth Saheb and am satisfied with its spiritual effects. But when some one asks about our religion, I am confused to give then solid and basic answers of our preeching. Even though I dont remember that ever I had done moorty pooja and I dont like it when god is omny present. If all our lords Devis and Devatas are there, why we cant concentrate on them with any biased physical appearance and why do we preech or worship idols?
