Reason For Not Tying Rakhi In Bhadrakal
According to astrology, it is inauspicious to tie Rakhi in Bhadrakal. In astrology, no auspicious work is done in Bhadra and Rahukal because the result of work done at this time is inauspicious. It is a mythological belief that Rakhi was tied by Lankapati Ravan in Bhadrakal. Within a year Ravana was destroyed and he was killed. That is why sisters tie rakhi on the wrist of their brothers except for Bhadrakal.
It is believed that Bhadra is the sister of Sun’s son Shani Maharaja. At one time Lord Brahma had cursed Bhadra that any person who does auspicious work in Bhadra will have inauspicious results. For this reason, also Rakhi is not tied in Bhadrakal and also in Rahukal.
