संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

ग्रस्तमाने रवौ स्नायात्

ग्रस्तमाने रवौ स्नायात् मुच्यमाने निशाकरः।
सूर्येन्दुग्रहणं यावत् तावत् कुर्याज्जपादिकम्॥
न स्वपेन्न च भुञ्जीत स्नात्वा भुञ्जीत मुक्तयोः॥
grastamāne ravau snāyāt mucyamāne niśākaraḥ|
sūryendugrahaṇaṁ yāvat tāvat kuryājjapādikam||
na svapenna ca bhuñjīta snātvā bhuñjīta muktayoḥ||
One should bathe [also] after the start of the solar eclipse, and after the completion of the lunar eclipse.
As long as the eclipse is on, one must do maximum japam
Neither should one sleep nor should one eat, [during the eclipse], and after bathing at the end of the eclipse only must one eat
