Raksha Bandhan 2022 on 11th or 12th August? Know the confirmed date and auspicious time
Raksha Bandhan 2022 Date: While siblings gear up for the festival of Raksha Bandhan, there is a lot of confusion regarding the date of the festival this year. The festival of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of Sawan month. According to the Hindu calendar, this time Rakhi is falling on August 11. But due to the shadow of Bhadra Kaal on this day – an inauspicious time – some people have opted to celebrate the festival of Rakhi on 12th August. If you are also confused about the date, let us tell you about the auspicious time and date of the festival.
Rakshabandhan 2022: Date and auspicious time
The full moon date of Sawan month will start from 10.39 am on 11th August and will end on 12th August at 7.05 am. In such a situation, the festival of Rakhi will be celebrated on August 11. But again on this day Bhadra Kaal will start in the morning and will end at 8.51 pm. So technically Rakhi can be tied after that, which is why many people celebrate on 12th August. This is because, in Hinduism, it is believed that no auspicious work is done after sunset. Therefore, many sisters would not like to tie Rakhi on the night of 11th August. Many will celebrate the 12th. But remember, you have to tie rakhi on the wrist of your brothers before 7.05 am on the 12th. “Traditionalists should celebrate on the morning of 12th as Raksha Bandhan is always celebrated on the full moon day. Purnima Tithi begins when the full moon starts at the time of sunrise; And the 11th, technically it is not a full moon date,” says astrologer Anupam V Kapil.
Tie Rakhi on 11th August at this time
According to astrology, Bhadra will remain for the whole day on August 11, so tying Rakhi during this time is not considered auspicious. But it is said that Rakhi can be tied at the time of Poonch Bhadra. Poonch Bhadra will start from 5:17 pm on 11th August and will run till 6.18 pm. It will be auspicious to tie rakhi during this time.
