A Hindu holiday called Raksha bandhan is observed in India. This festival is considered a symbol of love and bond between brother and sister and is celebrated on the full moon day of Shukla Paksha of Shravan month, which falls in July or August.
On the day of Raksha Bandhan, the sister ties a special thread or rakhi on the wrist of her brother, which they see as a symbol that means that their brother takes responsibility for their safety.In addition to giving their sisters gifts, brothers also wish them good fortune in life.
Why is Raksha Bandhan celebrated?
Rakshabandhan, a significant festival observed in the Indian subcontinent, is regarded as a representation of the love and ties that bind brothers and sisters. This festival is celebrated on the full moon day of the Shukla Paksha of the month of Shravan, which falls in July or August.
The name Raksha Bandhan is made up of two words – “Raksha” and “Bandhan”. “Raksha” means protection or protection, while “bandhan” means bondage or ritual of bondage. In this festival, the sister wishes her brother a long and safe life and the brother gives her gifts which mean affection and respect.
There is a story in the story of Rakhi that Lord Krishna had cut his succulent kadai for his friend Draupadi and tied her in bondage, which caused wounds in her hands. Because of this, this holiday is regarded as a representation of the protective and loving relationship between brothers and sisters.
On the day of Rakshabandhan, a sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s wrist, creating a special mutual bond. After this the brother gives a gift to his sister and both wish each other happiness and blessings.This festival’s main goals are to encourage the increasing sentiments of morality in the family and to promote brotherhood.
When is the auspicious time for Raksha Bandhan?
There is a lot of confusion about when Rakhi 2023 will be celebrated. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on full moon day and this time full moon will start on 30 August 2023 at 10:45 am so you can tie rakhi from then.
But at about the same time i.e. around 11:00 in the morning Bhadra will also start and this Bhadra will end at 9:03 in the night. Now people will not celebrate Rakhi on August 30 because tying Rakhi in Bhadra is not considered auspicious.
Now let’s talk about the next day i.e. 31st August 2023, then the full moon date will end on 31st August at 7:05 am and till 7:05 am on 31st August, there is an auspicious time for this. That is, if you want to celebrate the festival of Rakhi, then you can make it from 9:00 pm on August 30 to 7:05 am on August 31, and this is the auspicious time for it.
Now with so much confusion, it is obvious that no one will celebrate Rakhi after 9:00 pm on 30th August. That’s why this Rakhi will be celebrated on 31 August 2023 in most places in India. If you want to tie it in an auspicious time, then tie it on your brother’s hand before 7:05 am on August 31.
