This year people are really confused about when to celebrate Rakhi, whether on August 30 or 31.
If you are one of them, you arrived at the right destination!
Ideally, Rakhi is tied on the 'Purnima' of the Shravan month. However, due to 'Bhadra' nakshatra on the same day, there is a little change.
On August 30 i.e. Purnima, the 'Bhadra' nakshatra --believed to be inauspicious as per Hindu mythology, will begin at 10:59 in the morning and will continue till 8:58pm.
Therefore, Rakhi will not be tied between 10:59 am to 8:48 pm on August 30.
Khajrana Ganesh Temple Indore priest Ashok Bhatt confirmed that the auspicious time to tie rakhi is after 9:02 pm on August 30, minutes after the 'Bhadra' ends.
The 'muhrat' will continue till 7am on August 31.
