The lunar eclipse has the energy to manifest in desires in the world. The Moon with all its Maya when eclipsed my Ketu creates a very powerful energy. Any mantra done during an eclipse is very powerful.
There also two deities that can be worshipped during an eclipse, to grant complete protection and blessing.
- Shri Narasimha
- Devi Bagulamukhi
There are only two who can not be eclipsed at all. Their energy is of extremely powerful Mars, as one the mother of Mars and other the Avatar of Mars.
So we will worship Shri Narasimha as Vishnu Avatar can be worshipped by anyone and does not require many rules as in the case of Mahavidya Bagulamukhi Devi.
During the time of the eclipse is very beneficial to chant the Narasimha Mantra. The mantra done during this time is very powerful and grants a lot of blessings and protection to the Native.
Chant the following mantra during the eclipse time:
ॐ क्ष्रौं नमो भगवते नृसिंहाये। om kṣrauṁ namo bhagavate nṛsiṁhāye |
