Surya Grahan Ritual and Fasting in Hinduism
If you observe a ritual fast during this grahan, be sure to follow it.
On this day, Hindu temples are closed in the morning. On this day, swimming in rivers, oceans, and other holy waterways is seen to be particularly fortunate.
During Surya Grahan, some Hindu groups often practice fasting (Upvaas). About nine hours before Surya Grahan kicks off, fasting begins. Along with taking a cold shower, they also sing Mrichunjaya and Ashtakshara mantras, which are prayers to Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. When Rahu is influencing Surya and Chandra, this occurs.
