Bhai Dooj date 2019, wishes, images, quotes: The five-day grand Diwali festivities, began with Dhanteras, will culminate with Bhai Dooj on Tuesday. Bhai Dooj is also known as Bhai Phota or Bhau Bheej. Bhai Dooj is observing on the second day after the new moon or Shukla Paksha in the Hindu lunar month of Kartik. Hindu lunar month of Kartik generally falls between the months of October and November. This year, Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on October 29. On this auspicious occasion, sisters pray for their brothers’ long life and well being.
Behind the occasion of Bhai Dooj, there are two popular legends. According to one of these two legends, Lord Krishna after killing Narakasur went to meet sister Subhadra. Subhadra greeted Lord Krishna by applying vermilion tilak on his forehead and performed aarti. The second legend, however, states Yamaraj, the God of death, visited his sister the Yamuna.
The Yamuna greeted Yamaraj by applying vermilion tilak on his forehead. Yamaraj then gave her a boon if anyone, who celebrates Bhai Dooj with her and takes bath in the river Yamuna, would never go to hell.
