When is Diwali 2022?

In 2022, Amavasya is falling on the 24th of October & 25th of October. However, on the 25th of October, Amavasya Tithi is ending just a day before a “Pradosh-Kaal”, in this case, the festival of lights or Diwali is going to be celebrated during “Pradosh-Kaal” on the 24th of October.

So, on the 24th of October in “Nishit-Kaal” there will be Amavasya. Therefore, this year Diwali festival will be on the 24th of October 2022. As per the astrological Calculations, Chhoti Diwali or “Narak-Chaturdashi” will also be celebrated on 24th October 2022.

What special coincidence is occurring in Deepawali?

On October 23, Trayodashi Tithi will fall on Sunday and will last up to 06:04 pm. Just after the same, Chaturdashi Tithi will arrive. On the 24th of October, Chaturdashi Tithi will probably end at 05:28 pm & Amavasya-Tithi will begin. This Amavasya-Tithi will remain on the 25th of October and last up to 04:19 pm.

When the moon comes in between the Sun & the earth & the shadow of our moon falls upon the earth, then during this time, we will observe a Solar Eclipse when actually viewed from our earth. This probably happens on the Amavasya days.

The impact of Solar Eclipse 2022

On the day of October 25th, just a day after the biggest Hindu festival of the year i.e., Diwali, 2022’s last solar eclipse will take place.

Just a day after Deepawali which is on the 25th of October the world is going to witness its last Solar Eclipse of 2022. However, this will be a partial eclipse and be visible from various nations, including most areas of India. Along with the scientific reasons behind the Solar Eclipse, there are a few cultural implications also for the Indians and also for those who follow varieties of rituals & beliefs or are associated with them in some sense. Astrologically, 2022’s last Solar-Eclipse is supposed to happen during Diwali Festival and may affect various Zodiac Signs in multiple ways.

Visibility of the Solar Eclipse

This is the partial Solar Eclipse or better known as Aanshik Surya Grahan and during this time a part of the Sun is obscured. On the other hand, during the total Eclipse, the disk of our Sun is entirely obscured by our Moon. The visibility of the Solar Eclipse will be observed by many regions covering North-Eastern areas of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Western Asia, the North Indian Ocean, and the North Atlantic Ocean. In our country that is in India, the ending of the Solar Eclipse will not be clearly visible and takes place after Sunset.

The obscuration of our Sun by the Moon will be between 40-50% in approximation during the time of the maximum eclipse in the north-western areas of our country and in other regions, the total percentage coverage will be somewhat less than mentioned values.

Sutak of This Solar Eclipse

The Sutak of 2022’s last solar eclipse will begin at 6:03 am i.e., 12 hours earlier and will have a significant impact on the Sanatan Dharma. The eclipse will be being at 4.23 pm & will last till the time of 6.19 pm. Therefore, during the time of the Solar Eclipse, the doors of temples will be closed as well as just after the solar eclipse, the Ganga bath, recitation, donation, chanting, etc. are performed. No one is allowed to drink anything except the pregnant woman & patient, and the pregnant woman should not use/wield a knife. The magnitude of the Solar Eclipse will be around 36%

Let’s focus on what special care should be adopted for this Solar Eclipse

There are multiple religious beliefs associated with the solar eclipse, and as per the same there are a few things that need to be taken care of:

• As per religious beliefs, solar eclipse duration is considered truly auspicious, it is the reason why eating food should be avoided. In the absence of light, it is believed that bacteria movements become more active and faster during this time, thus causing food to deteriorate. All the children, old members, and pregnant women are allowed to take the Satvik Food during the time of Solar Eclipse.

• You are advised to not eat any leftover food just after the solar eclipse, as food gets spoiled without Sun’s rays and causes multiple digestive issues in the digestive system. It is the reason why difficult-to-digest food like garlic, onion, meat, fish, etc. should be avoided and should not be consumed.

• In case you want to protect the drinking water from the after effects of the solar eclipse, put some basil leaves in the bucket.

• Also, if you want to eat something after the eclipse then add 4-5 basil leaves prior to the solar eclipse and this will keep your food out of danger from the drastic effects of the eclipse.

• You should either close the door of the temple or put curtains in the temple of your house. As per Hindu Mythology, God should perform this to get away from the effects of solar Eclipse.
