Specifically the solar eclipse answer is this question speaks of immortality.

What are the beliefs related to lunar and solar eclipses?

And the huge head of the Danava, cut off by the discus and resembling a mountain peak, then rose up to the sky and began to utter dreadful cries. And the Danava's headless trunk, falling upon the ground and rolling thereon, made the Earth tremble with her mountains, forests and islands.

    What exact rituals are you talking about? Many Hindus still follow many rules related to eclipses. Like not eating during that period, bathing before and after the eclipse, doing mantra japa during the period etc. – Rickross Jan 31 '20 at 5:58
  • @Rickross, especially not watching the eclipse (although i am guilty of it) – mar Jan 31 '20 at 7:48
  • Solar eclipse sacrifices and rituals were performed by earlier Mayans of America. There is amavasya/no moon every month on which special rules are to be followed within Hinduism. – user16530 Jan 31 '20 at 8:47
