Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a celebration that honours sibling relationships.
On this day, sisters tie their brothers’ wrists in a rakhi or an amulet. This represents the brother’s duty to look out for his sister at all times.
On August 11, 2022, Rakhi will be observed this year. The event is observed in the month of Shravana (on a full moon day), which usually falls in August, according to the Hindu lunar calendar.
The Purnima (full moon day) tithi for this year will run from 10.38 am on August 11 till 7.05 am on August 12.
Raksha Bandhan rites should not be carried out during Bhadra, which is a bad omen and should be avoided for all auspicious activities, according to drikpanchang.com. The Bhadra time will end this year at 8.51 p.m.
According to the Hindu division of the day, Aparahna, or late afternoon, is the ideal time to tie a rakhi. Pradosh time is ideal for ceremonies if Aparahna time is not available.
This year, the Raksha Bandhan 2022 thread ceremony’s Pardosh timings will run for 22 minutes, beginning at 8:51 p.m. and ending at 9:13 p.m.
