The festival of Bhai Dooj will be celebrated across the country on Monday, 16 November 2020. Bhai Dooj is celebrated every year on the second date of Kartik Shukla Paksha. On this day, sisters apply tilak on their foreheads, wishing for the brother’s long life and prosperity, by fasting, worshiping and story etc. In return, the brother gives a gift, taking a pledge to protect them. According to astrologers, on the auspicious time of Bhai Dooj, sisters should apply the vaccine to the brother’s forehead. It is believed that along with worshiping on the day of Bhai Dooj, the fast story must also be heard and read. It is said that by doing this, you get auspicious results.
Bhai Dooj Tilak’s auspicious time
Acharya SS Nagpal told that the festival of Bhayuduj is celebrated on the second date of Shukla Paksha in Kartik month. Bhai Dooj’s commentary is on auspicious time from 12:56 to 03:06.
Bhai Dooj story-
The name of Lord Surya Narayan’s wife was Chhaya. Yamraj and Yamuna were born from his womb. Yamuna loved Yamraj very much. She would plead with him to come and have food with favored friends. Yamraj, busy in his work, kept on talking. The day of Kartik Shukla arrived. Yamuna again invites Yamraj for food that day, committing him to come to his house.
Yamraj thought that I am going to defeat life. Nobody wants to call me home. It is my religion to follow the goodwill with which the sister is calling me. While coming to the sister’s house, Yamraj freed the creatures living in hell. Seeing Yamraj coming to his house, Yamuna was not happy with her. He took bath and worshiped and served food. Pleased with the hospitality offered by Yamuna, Yamraj ordered the sister to ask for the bride.
Yamuna said that Bhadra! You come to my house every year on this day. The sister like me, who should give a comment on this day with respect to her brother, do not fear her. Yamraj called Yamastu and gave the priceless clothes to Yamuna and went to Yamlok. The tradition of the festival was formed from this day itself. It is believed that those who accept hospitality do not fear Yama. That is why Bhaiyuduj is worshiped by Yamraj and Yamuna.
