On Wednesday, the fifth and last day of Yamapanchak, sisters married their brothers.
Although there is no obstacle to wearing Bhaitika Tika all day today, the time of Abhijit Muhurat at 10:51 am is the best time to seek Sait.
It is a religious and social tradition that on this day, sisters give their brothers food such as okhar, katus, mar masala and selroti after applying tika, and brothers also show their respect by giving clothes and dakshina to their sisters as symbols of good fortune.
After sisters vaccinate their brothers, brothers also vaccinate their sisters. Prof. Dr. Devmani Bhattarai, a theologian and a member of the Nepal Panchang Adjudicatory Development Committee, informed that there is a classical belief that by worshiping one’s sisters one gets good fortune and prosperity.
Even those who are not able to go home and get tika, they go to Ranipokhari to get tika. For those who do not have sisters, Balgopaleshwar temple in the middle of Ranipokhari in Kathmandu was opened this time as well. Balagopaleshwar Temple opens only on this day once a year.
