Raksha Bandhan 2022: We celebrate Raksha Bandhan to celebrate the pious bond between a brother and sister. This event is observed on Sawan purnima every year, but this year it will be on August 11 and 12 both the days. Due to some uncertainty people are confused between today (11 August) and tomorrow (12th August). Let us clarify this question and tell you what is the auspicious time and what knowledgeable pundits have to say about it.
Which day is fortunate to tie Rakhi, August 11th or August 12th ?
According to the Panchang, the Sawan month’s full moon begins at 10:38 am on August 11th and lasts until 7:05 am on August 12. People are unsure of whether Raksha Bandhan should be observed on August 11th or August 12th, as the full moon dates fall on both days. According to astrologers, tying rakhi on August 12th will be fortunate because of Bhadra’s shadow on August 11th.
Shubh Muhrat for tying Rakhi
According to the Panchang, Bhadra Kaal will take place on August 11 from early morning to 8:51 p.m. Hindu traditions forbid performing auspicious tasks like Raksha Bandhan after sunset. As a result, some astrologers and ritualistic pundits believe that tying a rakhi on August 12 is auspicious. However, sisters cannot tie rakhi to their brothers on this day in Bhadrakal or at night. It will be lucky to tie or tie a rakhi before 7:05 in the morning, while this day is the full moon date only till 7.05 in the morning.
How to tie rakhi correct way
While tying Rakhi, the brother must sit facing the west. Place a lamp made of akshat, sandalwood, roli, and ghee in the Rakhi plate. Apply nthe Roli and Akshat vaccination to the brother’s forehead first. Perform their aarti after that. Then tie rakhi around your brother’s wrist and sweeten his mouth with some candy.
Mantra for rakhi tying
Yena bandho bali raja danavendro mahabala:
I bind you with it, protect you, don’t move, don’t move
While tying rakhi, the aforementioned mantra must be chanted. This mantra means that I tie you with the same Rakshasutra with which the great mighty demon king Bali was tied. It will protect you. O Protect! (Rakshasutra) You are not moving. Do not move.
