Bhai Dooj 2020: Bhai Dooj Tilak Shubh Muhurat, rituals to be followed |


Bhai Dooj is celebrated on Kartik Krishna Dwitiya falling at Aprahan. It falls on the second day of the New Moon according to Hindu calendar. This day is considered auspicious even according to constellations.
It is said that Lord Krishna visited her beloved sister Subhadra while returning back after killing Narkasur, the demon. Subhadra welcomed him by applying vermillion (Kumkum) tika on his forehead as a mark of victory and blessings. This day is also well known as Yama Dwitiya.
Story is taken back to the reunion of Yama with his sister Varni after long period of time. Varni prepared feast, decorated her house for her brother’s welcome and in return gift he gave her word that this day will be remembered forever and celebrated to signify the bonds of brothers and sisters.
Though Bhai Dooj Pooja is very simple, we think it reaps better results if you keep certain things in consideration. I suggest you to use sandal and betel nuts along with vermillion in the bhai dooj thali. Though most of you conduct pooja using ‘Baajot’ as asana for brother but I advise you to make a square with rice grains and use it as asana for brother.
Once you apply tika or tilak on his forehead, it is advisable to give black grams, betel leaf or betel nut in brother’s hand before performing the Aarti. I urge you to pray Moon early in the morning this day and also recite 10 names of Yamraj. People who do not have brother can surely worship the Moon. I also recommend you to light an oil lamp in the south direction of your house. It creates an atmosphere of love and harmony in the relationship of brothers and sisters and also increases their lifespan.
This year, Bhai dooj Aparahna time would be 1.10 PM to 3:20 PM and it is the best Muhurat to conduct the puja. The planet Venus will enter its Libra zodiac at night. The Sankranti of Scorpio is also starting from 6:54 AM. Rahu-Kaal will remain from 8:04 AM to 9:24AM on this day. Bhai Dooj should not be celebrated at this time. Bhai Dooj is not just mere festival but it is holy pledge of love and protection.
