What is Bhai Dooj - History of Bhai Dooj

On the day of Bhai Dooj, sisters apply tilak on their brother’s forehead and offer them Aarti and sweets. The brother, on the other hand presents awesome gifts to their loving sisters. There are several stories that describe the origin of the festival. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna, after slaying Narkasura demon, visited his sister Subhadra on the occasion of Bhai Dooj, who applied Tilak on his forehead.

There is another story which says Lord Yama, the God of deaths visited his sister Yamuna on the occasion of Bhai Dooj and Yamuna applied Tilak on his forehead. The festival is also known as Yamdwitiya and it is said that Yamuna offered delicious food made by her to Lord Yama. And thus, there is a tradition of brothers visiting their sisters on this day and it is believed that on this day sisters should prepare meal for their brothers. The meal prepared by the sisters is for the long life of their loving brothers. And it is believed that after applying Tilak, the brothers will never go to hell after their death.
