Bhaiya Dooj/Bhai Dooj, Bhau-Beej/Bhai Phonta is a festival which is celebrated among Hindus of India, Nepal and other countries on the second lunar day of the Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight) of the Kartika month of Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar. This is one of the Hindu festivals that celebrates the brother-sister relationship. It is celebrated by the Hindus twice a year – one during Diwali and the other during the Holi festival.
According to the one legend, Lord Krishna visited his sister, Subhadra after killing demon Narkasur. Her sister gave a warm welcome to him and made the occasion really special through flowers and sweets. Subhadra also applied the ceremonial “tilak” on the forehead of her brother, Krishna and hence the festival of “Bhai Dooj” was born from there.
This day holds special significance into the lives of a brother and a sister. It is an auspicious occasion that celebrates the strong bonding between siblings.
Sisters pray to God for the well-being and longevity of their brothers against all the evils and bad fortune. In return, brothers follow their responsibilities of caring and loving their sisters.
On this auspicious occasion of Bhai Dooj, Team Blossom Inc wishes that may God make your lives easy, harmonious and keep all troubles away.
