Rakshabandhan festival was celebrated on 31 August

Bhadra will remain whole day with full moon date starting on 30th, Rakhi cannot be tied during Bhadra period

Haldwani. Raksha Bandhan, the festival of affection between brother and sister, will be celebrated on 31 August. This time due to Bhadra, people are confused about celebrating Raksha Bandhan for two days on 30 and 31. In such a situation, astrologers have told August 31 itself to be auspicious for tying Rakhi, removing the confusion.
Most of the people have doubt about which day to celebrate Rakshabandhan this time. According to pundits, this time Raksha Bandhan will be under the shadow of Bhadra. That’s why calls are coming to clarify the date on which day to celebrate the festival. Astrologers say that this time on August 30, Bhadra is starting on the full moon, which will last for two minutes at nine o’clock in the night.
Rakhi is not tied during Bhadrakal and at night. In such a situation, Rakshabandhan will be celebrated only on 31st according to the religion and decision of Indus.
Sister can tie rakhi to brother on full moon date for five minutes at seven in the morning of August 31. This festival of brother-sister love should be celebrated only after observing a special Muhurta, which is on 31st.
According to Jyotishacharya, the full moon of Sawan will last from 10:58 am on August 30 to 7:58 am on August 31. Purnima Tithi is a full day on August 30, but Bhadra will also take place as Purnima begins. Which will last for two minutes at nine in the night. That’s why it would be appropriate to celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan on Udayakalin Purnima i.e. 31st.
According to Acharya Dr. Bijendra Prasad Mamgain, State Spokesperson of Uttarakhand Vidwat Sabha, Uttarakhand’s 140 years old Mahidhar Kirti Panchang has clearly mentioned to celebrate Rakshabandhan for the whole day on 31st. Rakhi cannot be tied in Bhadra for the whole day on 30th. In such a situation, it is best to tie Rakhi on 31st. At seven o’clock in the morning, the full moon date will be there for five minutes, but there will be no Bhadra. If tying Rakhi on Uday Tithi or the beginning of the festival, then it is considered for the whole day.
