Any reference in the Hindu scriptures (Vedas, Agamas, shastras, etc.) on why temples should remain closed during an eclipse (grahana)?

  • Good question. As such i feel.there is no.need to close temples. In fact religious and spiritual activities should be e.encouraged that time – Rakesh Joshi Nov 4 '17 at 1:03
  • Well, it could be down to custom as well but it would be great to know. I personally think there are good reason for closure due to the upsetting of the light rays on the energy around us - there are researches done on these already. – Ravi C Nov 4 '17 at 2:00
  • What.research ? You mean.this time.is not good for spiritual or religious stuff ? – Rakesh Joshi Nov 4 '17 at 2:03
  • We cannot explain everything yet in this world is my personal belief. The university of reading for instance has been conducting researches on climatic changes during eclipses. Other researches have been conducted on animal behavioral changes during phenomenon. The list is available just see any academia listing. – Ravi C Nov 4 '17 at 2:15
  • If you dont have explanation its okay but don't please brand it as a research. Just the point is how its related to worship or spirituality – Rakesh Joshi Nov 4 '17 at 2:16
