Bhai Dooj has been celebrated in India since ancient times. On this day, there is a law to worship Yamraj; it is said that worshipping Yamdev on this day solves all of the hardships that brothers face.
According to the scriptures, similar to Bhai Dooj celebrated two days after Deepawali, when sisters ask for a long life of their brothers, on Holi Bhai Dooj, sisters apply tilak on the forehead of their brothers and wish God to eliminate all the troubles in their brothers' lives.
How To Do Tilak On This Day?
After performing bathing and other activities early in the morning, wear clean clothes and worship Lord Ganesha and Lord Vishnu on Holi Bhai Dooj. Read Bhai Dooj's story or 'katha' and pray to him for your brother's long life. Then, adorn the aarti plate to tilak the brother.
On the plate, place roli, akshat, diya, sweets and betel nut (supari). Request the brother to sit on a small rectangular wooden table. Apply tilak and then akshat on the forehead and do aarti to him. Then, feed him sweets and give him a betel nut.
Brothers will then take blessings from their sisters by touching her feet. Don't forget to give a small gift to your sister as a token of love and sweeten her mouth with sweets. Sisters are suggested to feed their brothers first with delicacies and then send them home.
