What Is A Solar Eclipse?

In Vedic astrology, a Solar Eclipse is considered when the father planet Sun gets under the influence of the shadow planet, Rahu and as a result of this condition, the Sun comes in a state of affliction. From a viewpoint of Science, a Solar Eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon. We can see this natural occurrence through our naked eyes but religiously this event is considered inauspicious because during this period the Sun, giver of energy and life, starts suffering under  the effect of Rahu. In the Solar system all the nine planets revolve around the Sun and on Earth the Sun’s light is the one who is responsible for sustaining life. It is the natural source of light for every inhabitant on Earth and the Earth’s natural satellite, the Moon also gets illuminated by the light of the Sun. This is the reason why the planet Sun is considered an equivalent to God, because it provides life to all the living beings.

When Earth and Moon are moving in their respective orbits sometimes such astronomical conditions occur when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth and then a Solar Eclipse occurs as the Moon blocks the light coming from the Sun and the Earth is covered in partial or complete darkness during the day, depending upon the type of eclipse that has taken place. The Solar Eclipse happens when the Sun, the Moon and the Earth fall into a straight line. The eclipse sometimes can be of a shorter duration or a longer one, as it depends on the distance between the Sun, the Moon, and Earth. However, this period ranges for a short amount of time and as an eclipse ends, the sunlight once again reaches the Earth’s surface.

What Type Of Solar Eclipse Is It? 

The 1st Solar Eclipse in April, 2023 was a hybrid Solar Eclipse and the 2nd one, which is set to occur on Saturday, October 14, 2023 will be an Annular Solar Eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the Sun for a viewer positioned on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s diameter is smaller than the Sun’s, blocking most of the Sun’s light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus or a ring. An annular eclipse is considered as a partial eclipse and can be visible from different parts of the world. Sadly, an eclipse is never visible everywhere as it is a visual treat for astronomical enthusiasts. 

According to Hindu Panchang, the Solar Eclipse falls on Amavasya Tithi, and the upcoming and the 2nd and the last Solar Eclipse of 2023 will come on Krishna Paksha Amavasya.

A Solar Eclipse, generally, can occur or take place in various forms. It appears in the form of complete solar eclipse which is also called Khagras solar eclipse and also in the form of partial solar eclipse which is also known as Khandagras Solar Eclipse. Besides this, Solar Eclipse can also be seen in the form of annular solar eclipse which is also known as Kankanakriti solar eclipse.

Solar Eclipse 2023: Sutak Period

Please note that the above mentioned time of the solar eclipse is given according to the Indian Standard Time. The 2nd solar eclipse of the year 2023 will be an annular eclipse but will not be visible in India. The Sutak period is only observed in the places where the eclipse is being seen or is visible, but since this 2nd and the last solar eclipse will not be visible in India, its Sutak period will not be observed and become redundant. So, the people of India can follow their routine activities normally, and don’t need to follow or observe any special rules and regulations. The places in which this solar eclipse will be visible, which are mentioned in the box above, will have an effective Sutak period, and it will be beneficial for those people to follow the rules and regulations related to the solar eclipse. 

What Is Sutak?

Sutak is referred to as a time period before the solar or the lunar eclipse when the Earth’s atmosphere is considered impure or contaminated by harmful energies, hence performing certain activities during the Sutak kaal is prohibited. Sutak kaal is taken very seriously in the Hindu religion and performing pious rituals such as praying to god or other religious activities are strictly prohibited. The Sutak period is calculated keeping the praharas in mind. 

The traditional system of praharas is the same as the system of muhurtas which is based on precise astronomical calculations. According to this system the day is divided into eight praharas (of three hours each) or thirty muhurtas (of 48 minutes each) commencing at Sunrise. The point to note here is that the Sutak period for Solar Eclipse  is calculated taking 4 prahars into consideration. Therefore the Sutak period for Solar Eclipse starts 12 hours before the actual eclipse starts. Sutak is however observed only when the eclipse is visible at a said place. Some of the prohibited activities during Sutak kaal are oil massage, eating any type of solid or liquid food, engaging in sexual acts, starting a new venture during that period, performing religious activities, or touching the idols of the gods and goddesses is prohibited. You can only chant mantras, etc.
