I used to study astrology -- (gave it up with Buddha Dharma, Buddha crushes the head of the serpent -- no need to worry for those who have established daily practice! :smile: )

If I had not released Suriya my head would have split into seven pieces. While yet I live, I should have had no happiness. (Therefore I released Suriya)."


until then, I never knew we had so many eclipses every year until I studied it!


Here's a history on the myths surrounding solar eclipses.
