This solar eclipse will be witnessed during the period between 4.08 am to 9.18 am on 6 January. So here are the things which you need to do after the eclipse. Read on.

    Things You Must Do After The Solar Eclipse

    1. Donations are very dear to Surya Dev. He loves those who help the needy. Hence, one must make donations as per one's capabilities. You can distribute clothes, food and books to poor children. Going to old-age homes and offering clothes is another option. You can even donate blankets and shawls.

    2. Sun is often said to be a fatherly God. Hence, the more we respect our parents the more he is pleased. Similarly, offering something to old people really pleases him along with those the real-life parents there.

    3. Another reason for donations being so significant on this day is that solar eclipse occurs on Amavasya tithi. This tithi is especially considered for making donations to the priests. You can donate items of use to them.

    4. Clean all the idols kept in your puja room with water after adding Gangajal in it.

    5. Sprinkle Gangajal in the house to remove all forms of negativity.

    6. Do not forget to take bath after the eclipse. Women must take a head bath.Taking a bath is necessary from two perspectives:

    • The first is that the eclipse is considered an inauspicious event. It can harm one's eyes, their health and even stored food etc., not just because of biological but also because of astrological reasons. Astrologically speaking, it affects different zodiacs differently. Hence, in order to remove the after-effects and the negative energy of the eclipse, one must take a head bath.

    • The second reason behind it is that a bath after an eclipse removes negativity that might have occurred in the house. Because of this, some people even perform a puja. Though a holy bath is what should be preferred more. However, taking a head bath at home after the eclipse must not be skipped if you cannot go for a holy bath.
