Raksha Bandhan 2018 (Subh Muhurat)
Raksha Bandhan, also Rakshabandhan or simply Rakhi, is an Indian and Nepalese festival center around the tying of a thread, Rakhi on the wrist as a form of bond and ritual safety. The festive Hindu and Jain ritual are one principally between brothers and sisters, observed both before and after she gets married thereby marking her continued relationship with her natal home and brothers. Differing versions of the rite have been traditionally performed in northern India, western India, Nepal and some Hindu, Jain and Sikh emigrants from the India subcontinent since the 19th-century. It is alternately referred to as Salun, Silono, and Rakri.
Raksha Bandhan is observed on the last day of the Hindu lunar calendar month of Shraavana, which typically falls in August. On this day, sisters of all ages tie a cotton bracelet or amulet, called the Rakhi around the wrists of their brothers, ritually affirming the bond and support of her brothers, receiving a gift from them in return, and traditionally investing the brothers with a share of the responsibility of their potential care The expression “Raksha Bandhan,” Sanskrit, literally, “the bond of protection, obligation, or care,” is now principally applied to this ritual. It has also applied to a similar ritual in which a domestic priest ties string bracelets on the wrists of his patrons and receives gifts of money.
An auspicious time for tying rakhi in Raksha Bandhan:-
MORNING = 05.59 am to 17.25 am
Raksha Bandhan 2018 is being celebrated on Sunday, August 26th. On this day all the sisters will bind their own brothers to Rakhi Like every Rakshabandan, this auspicious Muhurta has been extracted by the Pandits for tying rakhi at this time too. According to the assumptions, Rakhi should be tied in the afternoon of Raksha Bandhan . If the sister can not tie Rakhi during this time, then Rakhi can be tied in the evening. At the same time, rakhi binding is considered inauspicious during the Bhadra period.
