You may not know that this reason for the solar eclipse and lunar eclipse is different from science!

An interesting reason for the Solar and Lunar Eclipse is related to the Samudra Manthan, in which Lord Vishnu played a trick with the demons by taking the form of Mohini.

These eclipses take place every few months. In science, these are considered astronomical phenomena, and people eagerly wait to see these eclipses. Many institutions make special arrangements to see these eclipses. In Hinduism and astrology, these eclipses are said to be inauspicious. Due to this, auspicious work is not done during the eclipse. At the same time, some rules have to be followed during the eclipse. Many people know about the Scientific Reason for Eclipse, but there is another reason behind it that is very interesting.

The last lunar eclipse of the year is going to take place on 19 November 2021. At the same time, 15 days after this, the last solar eclipse of the year will take place on 4 December 2021. Since this is a partial lunar eclipse, its Sutak period will not be valid. But the special thing about this eclipse is that it will be the longest partial lunar eclipse of this century. This eclipse will start around 11:30 in the morning and will last till 05:33 in the evening.

Know the auspicious muharata for marriages in November and December

It is believed that when the nectar came out during the churning of the ocean, Lord Vishnu in the guise of Mohini first spoke of giving nectar to the gods and then to the demons. The demons who were fascinated by his form agreed, but the demon named Swarbhanu understood the trick of Lord Vishnu and changed his form and sat with the gods. The Moon and the Sun sitting in the line of the deities recognized him and told Lord Vishnu about it.

Then Lord Vishnu got angry and severed the torso and head of the demon with the Sudarshan Chakra. Since the demon had drunk a few drops of nectar, he does not die and becomes angry and takes the sun and the moon as his grasp. In this way, they stop appearing for some time. Since during this time, the deities are in pain to free themselves from the demon, hence solar and lunar eclipses are considered inauspicious in religion and astrology. The head of this demon is called Rahu and the trunk is called Ketu.
