Raksha Bandhan is a Sanskrit word, where ‘Raksha’ means ‘Protection’ and ‘Bandhan’ means ‘to tie’, it basically means ‘to tie the knot of protection’. It is advisable to tie the sacred thread on the auspicious time. The best time to tie Rakhi is during Aparahan muhurat which is during the late afternoon. If Aparahna time is not available then Pradosh time is also suitable to perform rituals related to Raksha Bandhan.
