Eclipse is a very good time for Meditation & Chanting

When the Sun, Moon and Earth are in one line, there is a different cosmic energy pattern that happens and it is called “Eclipse”. It is a celestial phenomenon. This time is very good for meditation and chanting.

当太阳, 月亮,和地球合为一线时, 会发生另一种宇宙能模式, 称为月蚀 ( Eclipse) 这是一个星体现象。 这段时间非常适合进行静心和唱诵。

The mind is connected with the moon, the body is connected with the Earth and the Sun is connected with both. The time when all three come in alignment is good for spiritual practices. It is not a good time to eat, or indulge in pleasures. It is a good time to conserve energy. So, from the ancient times it is said that you should not eat during the eclipse, and you should meditate.

心智与月亮相连, 身体与地球相连, 而太阳与两者相连。 在这三者同相连时段, 对于灵性的修持非常有益。
这不是一个吃食或沉迷于享乐的好时机。 这是一个储存能量的好时机。 因此, 从远古时代开始就有这样的说法。 在月蚀期间不宜进食, 而应该进行静心。

Eclipse is a very good time for mantra chanting and meditation. Chanting mantras at the time of eclipse is much more powerful. This is the ancient saying.

月蚀是一个唱诵和静心的最好时机。 古语说法, 在月蚀时唱诵的咒语是更加强大的。

One or two hours before an eclipse, stop eating so that the food gets digested well and during the eclipse time you have an empty stomach, and on empty stomach chanting and mantras are done for maximum result.

在月蚀之前一两个小时停止进食, 以使食物得到很好的消化。 在月蚀期间保持空腹。 空腹唱诵和持咒可达到最大的效果。

Eclipse is a very auspicious time for saadhaks; it is not a bad time. It is a bad time for enjoyment and for pleasures. And when you chant 108 times during this period it is equivalent to 10,000 times or more! So meditation and chanting are highly recommended during this period.

月蚀对于萨达克斯 (saadhaks)不是一个不好时段反之是非常吉祥的时段。 而对于享受和娱乐却不是好时段。 当你在此期间唱诵108 次是相当于10,000 次或更多。 因此, 强烈的建议在此期间进行静心和唱诵经典。

When we are in activity, our mind is always focused in the front of the body. Close your eyes now, you’ll feel your mind is in front because the mind goes through the eyes to look at the world, and through the ears. During activity the mind is mostly focused in the frontal part of the body. For relaxing, we take our mind to the background. You will see suddenly there is something different happening. This is necessary, from time to time.

当我们进行活动时, 我们的心智总是集中在身体的前面。 现在, 闭上你的眼睛, 你会感觉到你的心智在前面,因为心智会通过耳朵及眼睛观察世界。 在活动过程中, 心智主要集中在身体的前额叶部分。 为了放松身心, 我们将心智放在背景。 你会突然发现发生了一些不同的事情。 这是时不时都需要的。
