It is celebrated on the full moon day of Shukla Paksha of Shravan month which is also known as Shravan Poornima or Kjari Poonam. In the month of Shravan, the full moon date of Shukla Paksha will start at 10.38 am on Thursday, August 11. Purnima Tithi will last till 7:05 am on Friday, August 12.

Shubh Muhurat for Rakhi is between 08:51 pm to 09:12 pm on Thursday, August 11.

Astrologers say that since August 12 will also be Purnima Tithi, Rakhi can be tied at any time on that day. So, August 12 can be used to celebrate the event. On August 11, anyone who wishes to tie a rakhi can do so, but after Bhadra time. Shubh Muhurat for Rakhi on August 12 are as follows :

Abhijeet Muhurat will start from 11:59 am to 12:52 pm on Friday, August 12.

Tying the Rakhi, giving gifts, and performing aarti, are just a few of the lovely customs that accompany Raksha Bandhan. This is the time of year when families get closer and connections are stronger. The best thing about Hindu festivals is that they unite the entire family under one roof.

The festival is often observed between cousins and other distant relatives in addition to the family. The festival unites people from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, overcomes the boundaries of biological family, and stresses love and harmony via ritual. That is what makes Raksha Bandhan so beautiful.
