Powerful Remedy for this Eclipse Season

Write the mantra “Om Dum Durgaye Namah” 11 times daily using a dark blue ink pen. While writing the mantra mentally repeat the mantra in your mind. This process of writing a mantra is called Likhita Japa. Fear is the theme of this eclipse season, Goddess Durga is revered for her ability to dispel fear and offer protection, making this practice especially relevant and potent.

Here are some tips to make the most of this powerful ritual

  2. Opt for a dedicated notebook for this purpose, ideally one that’s new and hasn’t been used for other writings.
  3. If available, an ink pen is preferred.
  4. Begin each mantra writing session by honiring Lord Ganesha. This can be done by either silently reciting “Om Gam Ganapataye Namah” or by writing this mantra as the first entry in your notebook.
  5. Considering the eclipse’s connection with Rahu, which symbolizes foreign elements, you may also choose to write the mantra in a language that’s not your mother tongue. This is optional.
