Rakhi Bandhan 2023

Raksha Bandhan 2023: According to the Hindu calendar, this year the Raksha Bandhan festival will be celebrated on 30th August. However, on the day of Raksha Bandhan, it is important to keep in mind that the rakhi should not be tied during Bhadra period. In fact, Bhadra period is considered inauspicious. Therefore, it is advisable to tie the rakhi on the auspicious timing when sisters should tie the rakhi on their brothers’ wrists.

Astrologer Dr. Anish Vyasa has explained that the full moon phase will begin on 30th August 2023 at 10:59 AM, which will last until 7:04 AM the next day. On this day, the Bhadra period will occur from 10:59 AM to 9:02 PM. This Bhadra period will be inauspicious for Earthly matters. Therefore, you can tie the rakhi after 9:02 PM until 12:28 AM, post-midnight. In the scriptures, celebrating Shravani Parva during Bhadra period is also advised against, and the Bhadra period on this day will continue until 9:02 PM. It is recommended to tie the rakhi after this time for a more suitable occasion. There are variations in the panchang regarding the timing of the full moon.

Raksha Bandhan 2023

The astrologer explained that according to the Hindu calendar, Raksha Bandhan is celebrated every year on the full moon day of the month of Sawan (July-August). This festival of the sacred bond between brothers and sisters is celebrated with enthusiasm throughout India. Sisters tie the sacred thread of Rakhi on their brothers’ wrists and wish them a long life, while brothers take a vow to protect their sisters. According to religious scriptures, Raksha Bandhan should not be celebrated during the Bhadra period. It is believed that tying Rakhi during the Bhadra period is not auspicious.

According to a mythological story, Ravana, the king of Lanka, was tied a Rakhi by his sister during the Bhadra period, and in the same year, Lord Rama defeated Ravana. Due to this story, Rakhi is never tied during the Bhadra period.

Significance of Raksha Bandhan 2023:

The astrologer explained that there are several legends associated with the festival of Raksha Bandhan. One such legend is that of Lord Indra and his wife Sachi. This story is mentioned in the Bhavishya Purana. When the demon king Bali attacked the gods, Indra’s wife Sachi was greatly troubled. She sought help from Lord Vishnu, who gave her a thread and instructed her to tie it around Indra’s wrist. By doing so, they emerged victorious in the battle. Another story from the Mahabharata era is connected to Raksha Bandhan.

During the fight with Shishupala, when Lord Sri Krishna’s left hand started bleeding, Draupadi tore a piece of her saree and tied it around Krishna’s finger. It is believed that since then, Krishna considered Draupadi as his sister, and he protected her honor during the episode of her disrobing. This tradition of Raksha Bandhan has continued since then, celebrating the bond between brothers and sisters on the full moon day of the Shravana month.
