Time to Avoid for Performing the Rakhi Customs on Raksha Bandhan

Do not tie rakhi to your brother in the Bhadrakal or Rahukal as it is considered inauspicious. Try to closely follow the auspicious timing mentioned to perform the rakhi customs and traditions.

For rakhi pooja, decorate your rakhi thali with roli-chawal, betel nut leaf, oil-diya, coconut, sweets, and rakhi set. Chant out the rakhi mantra, perform the pooja, and tie the rakhi on your sibling’s wrist.

The rakhi mantra:

“ येन बद्धो बलि: राजा दानवेंद्रो महाबल:.
तेन त्वामपि बध्नामि रक्षे मा चल मा चल.”

May you have a divine and blessed Raksha Bandhan!!!
