According to mythology, Tulsi originated from the nectar that was spilled on the earth at the time of Samudra Manthan. Tulsi is also used to avoid the bad effects of eclipse during the eclipse period. Yes, keeping Tulsi leaf in the house will not allow the negative energy coming from the sky or the universe during the eclipse to enter the house and there will be positive energy in the house. Also, the grace of mother Lakshmi will always be on you, because Tulsi Ji is considered to be the form of mother Lakshmi.
Let us tell you that the first lunar eclipse of the year 2021 is happening tomorrow i.e. on 26th May. Incidentally, on this day, there is also Vaishakh Purnima and Buddha Purnima. According to astrology, the first lunar eclipse of the current year will be in the Taurus and Anuradha Nakshatra. This will be the status of a full lunar eclipse, which will take place in many countries of the world including India. However, in India, this eclipse will be visible in the eastern part at the time of termination as subachaya.
Sutak takes place 9 hours before lunar eclipse, during which all auspicious works are forbidden. According to astrology, bad effects of lunar eclipse can be avoided by using Tulsi. In this case, let us know how to use basil to avoid eclipse.
Keeping Tulsi leaf removes negative energy:
To avoid the bad effects of eclipse, basil leaves should be kept in the house before the sutak period. Sutak period starts 9 hours before the eclipse and it ends after the eclipse period ends. Basil is used to purify an object during an eclipse.
According to scientific science, tell you mercury is present in Tulsi, mercury has no effect on any kind of rays. Significantly, during the lunar eclipse, para-violet rays come out, which are harmful for health. Due to the quality of mercury, keeping the basil leaf in the food makes it inactive. In such a situation, do not forget to keep basil leaves at these places during the eclipse.
Things to eat:
According to astrology, during the eclipse, keep some leaves of Tulsi in the kitchen. At the time of eclipse, the negative energy coming from the sky and the universe becomes inactive as soon as it comes near Tulsi. Also, do not forget to keep basil leaves in the kitchen where you keep the same amount of vegetables, fruits, and ration.
In the temple:
According to religious beliefs, the eclipse period is considered inauspicious, during this time one should not do pooja recitation nor should one see God. Therefore, before the time of sutak period, close the doors of the house temples and keep some tulsi leaves in the temple. Also, before offering bhog to God, keep a basil leaf in it as well.
To get auspicious results:
Before sutak period, take out any old worn clothes and put some grains and some basil leaves in it. After the eclipse period, donate the cloth along with the grain to a cleaning worker or a needy person. By doing this, you get auspicious results.
Pour basil leaves in a water tank:
Keep in mind that before the Sutak period, where you have collected water or put some basil leaves in the water tank. Because bathing after sutak period is considered auspicious, having tulsi leaf in water does not affect the negative powers.
Pregnant women should be more alert:
According to astrology, pregnant women should apply sandalwood and basil paste on the entire body after the end of sutak period. By doing this, the baby born in the womb is protected. Also, pregnant women are advised to be more alert during the eclipse.
Keep basil leaves in the vault as well:
Before the Sutak period, keep the basil leaf vault or even where you keep the money and the jewelry. Doing so does not negatively impact your wealth material.
