Every year, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, the bond between siblings is celebrated with zeal. Raksha Bandhan is one of the most important Hindu festivals. This ritual, popularly known as Rakhi, involves a sister tying a sacred thread around her brother’s wrist.
Raksha Bandhan is observed each year on the full moon in the Hindu month of Shravan, which falls on August 11 in 2022.
‘Raksha’ means security, and “Bandhan” means a bond, so the Hindu festival’s meaning is apparent. However, apart from its mythical and historical significance, the true significance of the occasion is discovered within the true bond between a brother and a sister. It is a pure symbol of love wherein the siblings promise to always be there for each other and to protect one another’s honour and glory.
Bhadra The clock ends at 8:51 p.m. on Thursday, August 11.
On Thursday, August 11, the Shubh Muhurat for Rakhi is between 08:51p.m and 09:12 p.m.
According to astrologers, because August 12 is also Purnima Tithe, Rakhi can be tied at any time on that day. As a result, August 12 can be used to commemorate the occasion. Anyone who wants to tie a rakhi on August 11 can do so, but only after Bhadra time. The following is the Shubh Muhurat for Rakhi on August 12:
On Friday, August 12, Abhijeet Muhurat will begin at 11:59 a.m. and end at 12:52 p.m.
On Friday, August 12, Shubh Choghadiya will be open from 12:52 p.m. to 02:05 p.m.
Rakhi tying, gift-giving, and aarti are just a few of the lovely customs that accompany Raksha Bandhan. This is the time of year when families come together and bonds are strengthened. The best aspect of Hindu festivals is that they bring the entire family together under one roof.
In addition to the immediate family, the festival is frequently observed by cousins and other distant relatives. The festival brings together people from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, transcends biological family boundaries, and emphasizes love and harmony through ritual. That is why Raksha Bandhan is so lovely.
