Raksha Bandhan is a celebration of the everlasting bond between brothers and sisters. On this day, sisters tie rakhi around their brothers’ wrists and pray for their long life. Simultaneously, the brothers swear to safeguard the sister.
Raksha Bandhan 2022 – The Raksha Bandhan celebration celebrates the unshakable affection of brother and sister. Every year during the full moon of the month of Sawan, this celebration is held. This year’s celebration will be held on Purnima Tithi for two days, on August 11th and 12th. People are confused about which day will be auspicious to celebrate Rakhi festival and when is the optimum time to tie Rakshasutra due to the two-day full moon date.
According to the Hindu calendar, the Sawan month’s full moon will begin at 10:38 a.m. on August 11th and will last until 07:5 a.m. on August 12th. People are unsure if Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on August 11th or August 12th under this circumstance. According to astrologers, due to the shadow of the Bhadra period on August 11, some individuals will celebrate Raksha Bandhan on August 12.
Bhadrakal is open from 8 a.m. to 8:51 p.m. on August 11. Any auspicious labour is banned after sunset, according to Hindu beliefs. As a result, sisters cannot bind rakhi to their brothers in Bhadrakal or at night. As a result, some believe that celebrating Raksha Bandhan solely on August 12th is auspicious.
Raksha Bandhan is celebrated every year on the full moon date of the month of Sawan in Hindu texts. It will be held on August 12th this year. Raksha Bandhan is seen as a symbol of brother-sister love. On this day, sisters tie a protective thread around their brother’s wrist and pray to God for their progress and long life; the brother then swears to always protect his sister. Some unique mantras must be performed during Raksha Bandhan Rakhi, according to Hindu faith. It is stated that repeating these mantras at that time produces extraordinary outcomes.
