Bhai Dooj 2021 English: The festival of Bhai Dooj is celebrated on the second day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Kartik.  The festival of Bhai Dooj is celebrated in the same way as Rakshabandhan, the only difference is that in this, tilak is applied not on the wrist of the brother but on the forehead.  The festival of Bhai Dooj 2021 is celebrated on the next day of Govardhan Puja.  This year the festival of Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on 6th November, Saturday, 2021.  Let us know why any festival should not be celebrated here? 

Mythology of Bhai Dooj 

According to the legend of Bhai Dooj, Yamraj was called several times by his sister Yamuna to meet him, but Yama could not go.  When he came to meet his sister one day, his sister was very happy and he fed Yamraj with great love and respect and prayed for his happiness by applying tilak like all sisters pray to God for the happiness of their brother.  Pleased, Yamraj asked sister Yamuna to ask for a boon. 

Bhai Dooj 2021 English: Then Yamuna asked that in the same way you should come to my house every year on the second day of Shukla Paksha of Kartik month.  Since then it has become such a belief that on this day any brother who goes to his sister’s house and eats food in her house and gets tilak done by sister, then he will not be afraid of Yama and premature death.  Yamraj accepted his boon and since then this festival started being celebrated. 

This day became a sign of mutual love and relation between brother and sister and since then this day became famous as Yama Dwitiya and it is believed that on this day it is very auspicious for brother to have food at sister’s house and on this day in Yamuna river.  Taking a bath is also very important.  This story of Bhai Dooj has now taken the form of a festival, but it has nothing to do with our holy scriptures, Vedas and Gita ji far and wide.  It was a promise/promise based on the mutual love of a brother and sister.  Which all the brothers and sisters have started doing today. 

Yam worship superior or God worship? 

It is said in Padma Purana that a person who takes bath in Yamuna after worshiping Yama on the second day of Kartik Shukla Paksha does not see Yamlok, that is, he attains liberation.  (Uttarakhandam 122-91/92 Undo).  If by simply taking a bath in the river one could attain heaven and get freedom from going to hell, then those living beings who already live in water would have been liberated before humans.  Bathing in the holy river Ganga and bathing in the holy Gita, which is not mentioned in the holy Gita, resulted in arbitrary conduct (worship) by abandoning the scriptures.  Which is said to be useless in Holy Gita Ji Adhyay 16 Shlok 23, 24. 

No fear of premature death 

A devotee of Satbhakti does not have the fear of death because he knows in advance that at the time of death, God himself will come to receive him and not the messengers of Yama.  The seeker of a true saint fearlessly waits for death because he gets this spiritual knowledge that if he will do devotion to the Supreme God by staying in limit till the end of his life, then Purna Brahm Paramatma will take that seeker to Satlok (where there is no birth and death).

Let us tell you here that worship should be done to one God and not to other gods.  The benefit of worshiping the Supreme God/Purna Parmatma is indescribable.  Whereas in Holy Gita Adhyay 9 Shlok 20, 21, it is said that those who worship me for the fulfillment of their desires (sakam) according to the scriptures described in the three Vedas, on the basis of their deeds, they rejoice in the great heaven and then come in birth and death.  That is, even if the sacrifice is scriptural, their only benefit is worldly enjoyment, heaven-hell and eighty-four lakh junis.  Unless the three mantras (Om and Tat and Sat symbolic) are not received from a complete saint. 

Only a complete saint can give salvation

Sanad Gita and the five Vedas are the basis of worship of the holy Sanatan Dharma.  In the Holy Gita, the giver of Gita is telling Arjuna that whatever action he performs, he will give the same result.  It is the law of the Lord that whatever action a creature does, it will definitely get its fruit.  This law remains in force till the seeker does not get the guide of the Tatvdarshi Saint Purna Parmatma.  The kind of action a living being does, he gets the same result. Birth and death and the enjoyment of the work done is definitely received (Proof Gita Adhyay 2 Shlok 12, Adhyay 4 Shlok 5).

Until the complete saint who tells the true sadhna of the Supreme God, sins cannot be destroyed (forgiveness), because by the worship of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Brahm (Kshar Purush/Kaal) and Parabrahm (Akshar Purush), sins can be destroyed.  (forgiveness), one has to bear the fruits of both sin and virtue.  If that creature, according to the knowledge of the Gita, does spiritual practice of the Supreme God by taking shelter of a complete saint, then he will go to Satlok, which is called complete salvation, because then he does not come in birth and death.  On the basis of past merits, a saint is again found.  That creature then crosses after doing good deeds. 

Bhai Dooj 2021: Our ignorance is the mother of all festivals 

On the day of Bhai Dooj, the main action is to give food, clothes, jewelery etc. to the sister according to her wishes and to give good food to the brother by the sister.  This is a fast which is mainly conducted with the aim of keeping the sacred affection of brother and sister as strong as possible. 

According to Bharat Ratna Mahamahopadhyay Dr. P.V. Kane, the celebration of fraternal dwitiya is an independent act, but it was probably mixed in the three days of Diwali because it gives an opportunity of great happiness and joy, which increases the clocks of Diwali.  Brothers and sisters meet each other, remembering the joys and sorrows of childhood.  The color of righteousness has also been added to this act. 

That is, the description of the practice of celebrating this festival of Bhai Dooj is not mentioned in our scriptures.  We all pray to God for the well being of our family, members, relatives, friends, neighbors and ourselves.  No sister or brother can do what God can do for a particular person.  Tatvdarshi Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj ji tells in his satsang, “This is the world of Kaal, here the messengers of Yama keep ambushing that when the time of the person is over, then capture him and take him to the court of Dharmaraja.  There is no need to celebrate anything here, but one should prepare to leave from here by doing true devotion.  This people is not fit to live in”. 

Know what is the purpose of celebrating Bhai Dooj? 

The purpose of sister on this day is related to the wish of brother’s prosperity and happiness.  This action by sister Yamuna and brother Yamraj has become an arbitrary practice.  A sister served the brother who came home, fed him good food and the brother asked the sister to ask for something, you started doing this after hearing this story.  But do you know that God is above Yamuna and Yamraj. 

Bhai Dooj 2021 English:  If both of these were God, then God must have described their worship and the method followed by them in the Vedas, but it is not so.  The real protector of both brother and sister is Purna Parmatma.  The Supreme God Himself comes to this earth of death.  He imparts his knowledge through couplets and proverbs and behaves like famous poets. 

• Evidence Rigveda Mandal No. 09 Sukta 96 Mantra 18 

ऋषिमना य ऋषिकृत स्वर्षा सहस्त्राणीथ: पदवी: कवीनाम् ।

तृतीयम् धाम महिष: सिषा सन्त् सोम: विराजमानु राजति स्टुप ।। 

That is, the one who is the Supreme God, assumes the title of famous poets and manifests his knowledge through proverbs and speeches, that God himself comes to this world of death physically after walking from his third abode of liberation i.e. Satlok and makes his philosophy known to the public.  presents itself. 

Supreme God Kabir 

There are descriptions of the qualities of God in the holy scriptures and Sukshveda, in which it has been told that the Supreme God can destroy all the sins of his seeker and also protects his seeker in every way.

The real protector of every living being is Purna Parmatma, whose name is KavirDev, also known as Kabir Saheb.  Kabir saheb ji comes in all the four ages.  In Kaliyuga, the name of the Supreme God is KavirDev.  For proof see Atharvaveda Kand No.04 Anuvak No.  01 Mantra No.07 

God says that: 

सतयुग में सतसुकृत कह टेरा

त्रेता नाम मुनिंद्र मेरा ,

द्वापर में करुणामय कहाया

कलयुग नाम कबीर धराया। 

God comes to this earth by different names in all the four Yugas and in Kali Yuga by His real name Kabir tells the living beings in this world of death the true knowledge and method of attaining their eternal place and complete salvation. 

Sadhana against scripture is the reason for the downfall 

In Holy Gita Adhyay 9 Shlok 23, 24 it is said that those who worship other deities are also worshiping Me (the one who lives in Kaal’s trap).  But this worship of them is illegal (meaning it is against the scriptures, meaning that other gods should not be worshipped) because I am the enjoyer and master of all the sacrifices.  Those devotees do not know Me very well (they do not recognize Kaal).  That is why they fall down, that is, hell and suffer the sufferings of eighty-four lakhs of Junis. 

As it is said in Gita Adhyay 3 Shlok 14-15 that the one who is honored in all the sacrifices, the one to whom the sacrifice is offered, that Supreme God (Sarva Gatam Brahm) is Purna Brahm.  He makes all the living beings get salvation by making Karmadhar.  But until the complete saint is not attained, the enjoyment (anand) of all the sacrifices is experienced only by Kaal (in the form of mind), that is why he is saying that I am the enjoyer and master of all the sacrifices.  Until human beings do not recognize the Supreme Soul, Kaal keeps them entrapped in the form of festivals by making arbitrary, Lokveda based, mythological, scriptural worships of other gods and goddesses. 

The basic aim of human life is self-welfare, which is possible only through scripture-friendly spiritual practice.  At present, all the pious devotees are behaving arbitrarily by abandoning the laws of social science.  In Gita Adhyay 4 Shlok 34, a reference has been made to a Tatvdarshi Saint.  Only by doing spiritual practice according to the scriptural method of the same Purna Parmatma, the seeker attains supreme peace and Satlok, that is, attains complete salvation.  Dear readers!  You are requested not to refuse hypocritical worship (festivals etc.) to do Satbhakti, take initiation from Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj and understand Satgyan.
