This year, Raksha Bandhan, or Rakhi, falls on August 30 and 31. Learn about the festival’s history, subh muhurat, importance, and festivities.
Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is an important Hindu holiday celebrating unbreakable and unique sibling relationships. The event is held on the yearly Poornima Tithi (full moon day) of Shravan Maas (Sawan month). On this day, brothers and sisters honor each other via various traditions. Brothers pledge to safeguard their sisters, love and cherish them, and shower them with presents they admire while sisters tie Rakhi on their brothers’ hands, place tilak on their foreheads, and pray for their prosperity and long lives. In current times, however, brothers also tie Rakhi to their sisters’ hands. Sisters also mark the occasion by tying Rakhi on each other’s wrists. If you and your siblings are celebrating the day, you should be well-versed in this event.
Raksha Bandhan 2023 Date and Shubh Muhurat: Rakhi 2023
Raksha Bandhan happens on August 30 and 31 this year. According to Drik Panchang, the two dates are due to Bhadra Kaal, during which no Raksha Bandhan rites should be performed. Rakhi can thus be tied on these two days. The Raksha Bandhan Bhadra Kaal concludes on August 30 at 9:01 p.m. As a result, you can begin performing rituals at this time. This year, the Raksha Bandhan Bhadra Poonch will take place on August 30 from 5:30 pm to 6:31 pm, while the Raksha Bandhan Bhadra Mukha will begin at 6:31 pm and finish at 8:11 pm. The Poornima Tithi (Full Moon) begins at 10:58 a.m. on August 30 and finishes at 7:05 a.m. on August 31.
Raksha Bandhan 2023 History and Significance: Rakhi 2023
Raksha Bandhan is extremely important to Hindus. One of the stories surrounding this occasion comes from the epic Mahabharata. According to legend, Lord Krishna sliced his finger on the Sudarshan Chakra by mistake. When Draupadi saw this, she tore a piece of material from her saree and wrapped it to the wound to stop the bleeding. Lord Krishna, moved by her action, pledged to protect her indefinitely. He kept his vow when Draupadi was publicly humiliated at Hastinapur’s royal court by the Kauravas’ attempt to embarrass her.
Rakhi has taken on symbolic significance in Hindu culture. It emphasises the importance of the sibling connection. In addition, the festival provides an opportunity for married ladies to return to their parents’ house for the ceremony.
