Generally, for Chandra Grahan 9 hours before the Grahan is referred to as Chandra Grahan Sutak (Inauspicious Time during Lunar Eclipse). This Chandra Grahan is a Sampurna Chandra Grahan (Total Lunar Eclipse), and in India it will be visible with naked eye. In India, the entire eclipse will not be visible.

Chandra Grahan Sutak, 8 November 2022

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 8 November 2022 Grahan, temples will remain closed as this Grahan is followed.

On 8 November 2022, Sutak begins at sunrise as this is Grasthodaya Chandra Grahanam. For children, old people and Pregnant women, Sutak begins at 8 AM and ends with Chandra Grahan Mokshakaal (6.19 PM, 8 November 2022). For Pregnant women, old people, patients and kids, there is no restriction from taking medicine and food as per the schedule given by the doctors.
