Story Behind Bhai Dooj

Bhai Dooj is also known as ‘Yama Dwitiya’ as it is  believed that on this day, Yamaraj, the Lord of Death, visits his sister Yami, who puts the auspicious Tika on the forehead of Lord Yama and prays for his happiness and well being.



Another story behind Bhai Dooj is on this day, Lord Krishna, after assassinating the Narakasura demon, goes to his sister Subhadra who greets him with the beautiful holy lamp, colourful flowers and lots of sweet, and puts the sacred protective Tika on her brother’s forehead.

Bhai Dooj Celebration

Upon the arrival of the Bhai Dooj festival , sisters welcome their siblings for an extravagant dinner mostly including their most loved dishes or desserts. The entire service connotes the obligation of a sibling to secure his sister, and in addition a sister’s gifts for her sibling.



Conveying forward the function in conventional style, sisters perform aarti for their sibling and apply a red tika on the sibling’s temple. This tika service on the event of Bhai Dooj connotes the sister’s sincerest supplications for the long and upbeat existence of her sibling. Consequently siblings favor their sisters and treat them likewise with blessings or money.
