Lunar Eclipse From 5:51 AM – 7:22 AM (Winston-Salem, NC)
All Hindu temples are closed for prayers for the duration of the lunar eclipse on Jan 31. This is because, according to Hindu religion, the eclipse has a negative energy which will leave a negative impact.
It has been found that during an eclipse, heavenly bodies, particularly the sun and the moon, emit abnormal negative radiations. An idol, which has been ceremoniously and ritually installed, constantly emanated positive energy in clockwise direction from its being. During an eclipse, the clockwise cycle of the aura around the idol is somewhat disturbed. Therefore, the doors of the temple housing the main deity are closed to prevent and minimize these negative radiations that disturb divine energy.
