Chandra Grahan Sutak, 16|17 July 2019

Since the Chandra Grahanam is visible, we need to perform Chandra Grahana Sutak. Usually, after the Shuddha Moksha Kaala, one should see the Chandra Bimba and perform Mokshakala Snana. After that, Nitya Bhojana Shraddhi Karma should be performed. And this time, we need to follow any ritual related to Chandra Grahan as it is Sampurna Chandra Grahan (Total Lunar Eclipse) which we can see with naked eye.

Since, in India this grahan is visible with full clarity, we need to perform ‘Pattu’ & ‘Vidupu’ Grahana Shanti Snana i.e. take bath before and after the eclipse.

Performing Japa, Shanti pooja, etc during Chandra Grahanam is the highly meritorious deed. Temples will be closed during the Chandra Grahan, after Grahana moksha kalam, grahana shanti poojas and Samprokshana are performed to open the temples. For 16 July 2019 Grahan, temples will remain closed as this Grahan is followed.

On 16 July 2019, Sutak begins at 4.31 PM in the afternoon. For children, old people and Pregnant women, Sutak begins at 1.32 in the night and ends with Chandra Grahan Mokshakaal (4.30 AM, 17 July 2019).
