Moon, the symbol of purity, tranquility and calmness is considered highly reverend. As per Vedic Astrology, Moon is worshipped because of its fluctuating nature and its effects. He is widely portrayed holding a lotus while seated in a beautiful chariot pulled by ten white horses or an antelope. Literally ‘chandra’ means ‘bright and shining’ in Sanskrit, thus Chandra God illuminates the dark sky and enlightens the being. He is also known as the God of vegetation and fertility.
Significance of Chandra:
Chandra or Moon God is adored for its powers to bestow life upon creatures and spreading the spark of coolness all around. Devotees worship the Moon God to get rid of all the worries and receive a positive ray of hope in their lives. He graces the worshipper with mental and physical peace and strengthens them to face the rough challenges. Worshipping the moon cures the problem of weak eyesight and brings a glow on the face. Being an indicator of feminine and motherly traits, couples pray to Lord Chandra for having a child.
Chandra in Vedic Astrology:
Moon God is said to be married to 27 Nakshatras, the daughters of Daksha. Chandra is the father of Budha (Mercury) and presides over Somvar (Monday). He is also one of the nine Navagrahas of Hindu Astrology. As per the Vedic Astrology, Chandra represents the mind, emotions, brain, imagination, beauty, mother, softness, and sensitivity. Soma rules Karkadaka rashi (Cancer) and is believed to be glorious if seen in Vrishabha rashi (Taurus) and not good in Vrishchika rashi (Scorpio). Chandra is most beneficial in 4th house of the horoscope.

The pious fasting of Karwa-Chauth, where married women fast for the long life of their husbands and maintain peace and prosperity among the family relations is considered a huge event. Numerous beliefs and sentiments have been attached to this festival, varying as per geographical relevance and traditions. The women perform the auspicious karwa chauth puja before breaking the fast and the following story is narrated.
Long time ago, in the city of Indraprasthapur there was a Brahmin named Vedsharma married to Leelavati. They both had seven sons and one daughter named Veeravati. Being the only sister of seven brothers she was highly pampered by everybody in the family.
As she got matured, she was married to a suitable Brahmin boy. After marriage, when Veeravati was with her parents, she observed Karwa Chauth fasting for the long life of her husband along with her sisters-in-laws. During the fasting of Karwa Chauth Veeravati couldn’t bear the hunger; and due to weakness she fainted and fell on the ground.
The brothers couldn’t bear the miserable condition of their little sister. They knew that Veeravati, a Pativrata, would not take any food unless she sights the moon even if it costs her life. All the brothers collectively made a plan to trick the sister to break her fast.
Two brothers went to the forest and burnt cow dung coal. The other two brothers went home and informed his sister that the moon has risen. Veeravati believed that the moon has risen and made offerings to the fake moon. When Veeravati sat for her meal she could feel all sorts of bad omen and she immediately got the news that the king was dead.
Goddess Parvati informed her that the king had died because the queen had broken her fast by watching a false moon. However, when the queen asked her for forgiveness, the goddess granted her the boon that the king would be revived but would be ill.
When she reached the palace, she found the king lying unconscious with hundreds of needles inserted in his body. Each day, the queen managed to remove one needle from the king’s body. She faithfully served his husband and adored Goddess Parvati for the wellness of his husband. Next year, on the day of Karwa Chauth, only one needle remained embedded in the body of the unconscious king.
The queen observed a strict fast that day and when she went to the market to buy the karwa for the puja, her maid removed the remaining needle from the king’s body. The king regained consciousness, and mistook the maid for his queen. When the real queen returned to the palace, she was made to serve as a maid.
However, Veeravati was true to her faith and religiously observed the Karwa Chauth vrat. Once when the king was going to some other kingdom, he asked the real queen (now turned maid) if she wanted anything. The queen asked for a pair of identical dolls. The king obliged and the queen kept singing a song ” Roli ki Goli ho gayi… Goli ki Roli ho gayi (the queen has turned into a maid and the maid has turned into a queen).
On being asked by the king as to why did she keep repeating that song, Veeravati narrated the entire story. The king repented and restored the queen to her royal status. It was only the queen’s devotion and her faith that won her husband’s affection and the blessings of Goddess Parvati.

An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when one object in the sky moves into the shadow of another. In case of Lunar Eclipse, moon becomes partly or fully invisible due to the Earth blocking sun rays to it and casting shadow on it. It takes place on Purnima (full moon night) only, yet it’s not necessary to have eclipse on all Purnima.
Researchers have proven that at the time of eclipse the level of Raja- Tama component increases and the Sattva component decreases. They may have detrimental effects on the beings as the negative energies become quite dominant then the positive energies.
Why one should not eat during eclipse time?
No cooked food should be consumed during the stages of lunar eclipse because the food turns poisonous; when it is affected by the ultra violet rays during lunar or solar eclipse. Therefore the Hindus follow the tradition of keeping a kusha (a grass serving as non- conductor of electrical waves) and tulsi leaves (anti-bacterial) on cooked food and generally observe fasting.
Why to take bath after the eclipse?
One should take bath in the holy Ganges, sacred rivers, and ponds or even at home as a symbol of cleanliness and purity. It is believed that after eclipse the water exposed to the process becomes totally pure- like of river Ganga. Thus having a bath with pure water cleanses our body and soul.
Why to give charity during eclipse time?
As mentioned before, the effect of negative energies become dominant so to get rid of its effect, the noble deed of charity is good to the weaker section of the society. People may donate food, clothes, coins, lands, and copper or silver or good metal, as per their choice.
Why is it advised not to see the eclipse?
One should not see the eclipse with naked eyes as the Ultraviolet rays can seriously damage the eyes. We may turn blind or face damaging impact on the retina of the eye.
Message from the Lunar eclipse:
The blocking of the Moon’s reflection of the Sun’s light by the Earth suggests that our material viewpoint stands in the way of our “seeing the light”. It serves as a reminder that we need to realize how we are held in the dark by virtue of our perspective. Thus this is an excellent time to let go of the past and welcome the positive thoughts and behaviours.
(The lunar eclipse on September 28, 2015 is a total eclipse. This event is visible from Europe, Africa, the Americas, the eastern Pacific and western Asia.)
Moon, the symbol of purity, tranquility and calmness is considered highly reverend. Celebrating the appearance of moon after Amavasya (New moon day) and adoring it is referred as Chandra Darshan. Devotees fast for the entire day and usually break their fast after viewing the moon.
- On this day the Moon holds special significance as it is difficult to spot it, being in the same horizon as Sun.
- The God of Moon is considered highly important as per Vedic astrology; and is also worshipped because of its fluctuating trait.
- Moon is a symbol of femininity, happiness, beauty, memory and wisdom; true signs to be worshipped.
- Chandra Darshan is also attached with the attainment of salvation and attaining blessings for self and family.
- All our senses are controlled by the mind and the mind is ruled by the moon. Thus adoring the moon keeps the mind and senses in control.
- Worshipping the moon cures the problem of weak eyesight and brings a glow on the face.
