Bhai Dooj 2022: The big day is approaching. Bhai Dooj honours the relationship between a brother and a sister. Bhai Dooj is observed during Diwali with the sister applying a mixture of honey, curd, and ghee to the brother’s forehead and chanting a special mantra that denotes that he is protected from all kinds of evil.
On the other hand, Bhai Dooj, another form of sibling love and protection, will be observed this year on October 26. Every year during Diwali, siblings wait for Bhai Dooj to draw a protective line around each other.
Because of the solar eclipse on Diwali’s next day, people are confused about when Govardhan Puja and Bhaiya Dooj will take place. So, this year, Govardhan and Bhaiya Dooj are celebrated on the same day, the 26th of October. The unique aspect of Bhaiya Dooj is that, for the first time in 50 years, a special coincidence occurs on Bhaiya Dooj, which will strengthen the bond between brother and sister.
Govardhan Puja is a widely celebrated Hindu festival that marks the occasion of Lord Krishna’s triumph over Indra, the King of the Devas. It is celebrated on the fourth day of five-day festivities that begin with Dhanteras and ends with Bhai Dooj Tika. pic.twitter.com/hh9aH3ra6K
