Raksha Bandhan 2022 Date, Rakhi Shubh Muhurat And Puja Vidhi: According to the Hindu calendar, the festival of Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the Sawan Purnima date. On this day sisters tie rakshasutras on the wrists of all their brothers. The festival of Rakshabandhan is also known as Rakhi. This time some doubts have arisen regarding the festival of Rakhi. Actually, the festival of Rakshabandhan is celebrated on Sawan Purnima Tithi and Bhadra-free period. If Bhadra is engaged on the day of Rakshabandhan, tying Rakhi in it is inauspicious. Apart from this, Sawan Purnima date is on two days i.e. 11th and 12th August, due to which confusion has arisen regarding Rakhi. Pandits and some scholars of astrology are advising to celebrate on 11th and some to 12th August. In such a situation, let us know the special things of Rakshabandhan this year and when to celebrate the holy festival of Rakshabandhan.
The brother-sister relationship is one of the most beautiful relationships in the world. In this, there is selfless love for each other along with fights and squabbles.
This year Rakshabandhan is being celebrated for two days due to Bhadra. In most parts of the country, Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on Thursday, August 11 and in some places, the festival of Raksha Bandhan will also be celebrated on August 12. Bhadra is taking place as soon as Shravan Purnima date starts on August 11, due to which there is no Muhurta for tying Rakhi till noon. On this day it is auspicious to tie Rakhi in the evening. Because of this, in some places, Rakhi will be tied in the morning on 12th August in Bhadra-free Muhurta. The time of sunrise is decided on the basis of the place and so is the date. Where there is Sawan Purnima Tithi after sunrise, Rakhi will be tied on August 12. In such a situation, we are telling you about the auspicious time of Rakshabandhan on 11th August and 12th August.
