It is believed that Raksha Bandhan rituals should not be done during Bhadra. Bhadra is considered inauspicious for all auspicious works, any religious rituals and hence tying rakhi should be avoided during this time. The mythological story behind this is that it was during the Bhadra period that Shroopknakha had tied the Rakhi to Ravana and that year, Ravana, along with his sons, lost the war and was killed by Lord Rama. It is also written in some Hindu scriptures that Lord Shiva performs ‘Tandava’ during Bhadra and hence no auspicious work should be done during this period.
