Raksha Bandhan 2022: What This Festival Has in Store for You?

Raksha Bandhan, commonly known as Rakhi, is one of India's most well-known festivals. The pious festival symbolizes the strong bond of love and protection between the brother and sister. Are you interested to know what Raksha Bandhan 2022 will be like for you? If yes, read on right away.

Raksha Bandhan is truly one of the most loved and notable festivals in our beautiful country, India. This festival is symbolic of a brother and sister's deep love. On this auspicious day, every brother promises to protect his sister against all odds, and every sister at the same time wishes for all things good for her brother. The festival of Rakhi is celebrated in every household on the Purnima of Shukla Paksha in the Shravan month; hence, it is a very auspicious day astrologically.

When Will Raksha Bandhan 2022 Be Celebrated?

When it comes to Raksha Bandhan, the sisters should not tie the Rakhis on their brothers' wrists during the Bhadra Kaal as it is considered to be very inauspicious.  Strangely this year, the Bhadra Kaal is present almost during the entire Poornima Tithi, due to which, people will have limited Shubh Muhurat or auspicious time for the rituals.

Our Shastras clearly explain that no auspicious work should be done during Bhadra Kaal as there are many tales around it. One of the mythological stories is that Bhadra Mata is the daughter of Lord Sun or Surya Dev and the sister of Lord Shani or Shani Dev. Lord Brahma once cursed her that no auspicious task like marriage, Mundan, or any other rituals would be done during her period. Another famous story is that of Ravana. His sister tied a Rakhi during the Bhadra Kaal, after which he got destroyed.

Let's get to know the Muhurta.

  • Shravan Shukla Paksha Poornima (Starts)- 11th August 2022, 10:38 AM (IST)
  • Shravan Shukla Paksha Purnima (Ends)- 12th August 2022, 07:05 AM (IST)
  • Bhadra Kaal (to be avoided)- 11th August 2022, 10:38 AM to 08:51 PM (IST)

Therefore,

  • Shubh Muhurta for Raksha Bandhan- 11th August 2022, 08:51 PM to 09:13 PM (IST)

Is Raksha Bandhan on 11th August 2022 or 12th August?

This year, there is a bit of confusion around the date of this pious festival. While some people believe that it is 11th August, others believe that it is on 12th August. This is because the Purnima Tithi with Bhadra is a bone of contention.

The Shravan Purnima, or full moon, falls on 11th August. The Purnima Tithi will start at 10:38 AM on 11th August 2022 and end at 07:05 AM on 12th August 2022. However, the Bhadra Kaal is also going to occur with the full moon and will happen during the first half of Purnima, and this is not the right time to tie a Rakhi. The Bhadra Kaal will end at 08:51 PM on 11th August. This is why the auspicious time for Raksha Bandhan will start on the evening of 11th August and go on till 12th August.

As the Purnima Tithi of Shravan will begin at 10:38 AM on 11th August, Udaya Tithi is not on 11th August but on 12th August. Moreover, there is no Bhadra Kaal on 12th August. Therefore, some people are talking about celebrating Raksha Bandhan on this day. Due to the presence of Bhadra, the auspicious time is very less this Raksha Bandhan. It would be best to celebrate the Raksha Bandhan festival after Bhadra on 11th August, during the auspicious time.
