About RakshaBandhan 2020
Raksha Bandhan is known by the different names in different regions of India. The rituals may differ a little from region to region but generally carry the same aura. For the farmers, it is celebrated as “Kajri Purnima”. On this day, they started sowing wheat and pray to god for good crops and in the costal-regions of India this day is celebrated as “Narayali Purnima”. The day is devoted to the God Indra (God of rain), and the God Varuna (God of sea).
Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in Shravana month during full moon day or Purnima day.
The best time to tie Rakhi on Raksha Bandhan is during Aparahna which is late afternoon according to Hindu division of the day. If Aparahna time is not available then Pradosh time is also suitable to perform rituals related to Raksha Bandhan.
Raksha Bandhan rituals should not be done during Bhadra. Bhadra is malicious time which should be avoided for all auspicious work. Most Hindu religious texts, including Vratraj, advise to avoid Bhadra time to tie Rakhi during Raksha Bandhan festival.
