Rakshabandhan – A bond that signifies the deep love between siblings – brothers and sisters.

The bonding between a brother and a sister is simply unique and is beyond description. The festival of Rakhi is celebrated in the holy month of Shravana to cherish that bond. On this day, the sister ties a sacred thread on her brother’s wrist and brother vows to protect his sister against all odds.
Every year, siblings celebrate the festival of Rakhi with a lot of enthusiasm.

 

The origin of Raksha Bandhan can be traced back to the mythological times, which recounts many stories on how this custom came into being. The most famous legend relates to a war between the Gods and the Demons. The Gods lead by Lord Indra were on the verge of defeat.

 

At this point, Lord Indra approached his guru Brihaspati and sought his help. Guru Brihaspati advised him to tie a sacred thread powered by mantras on his wrist on Shravan Purnima. On that day, Indra’s wife Sachi tied the thread on his wrist and Gods won the battle. Since then it become a common custom in India for women to tie a thread on the wrists of soldiers going for war, with the hope that it will protect them and lead them to victory.

 

The Mahabharat too, has a story relating to Raksha Bandhan. During the Rajasuya yagna – after Shishupal’s death, Krishna was left with a bleeding finger and Draupadi tore a piece from her sari and tied it to Krishna’s wrist to staunch the flow of blood. Touched by the gesture, Krishna vowed to repay the debt to her. There is also a mention of Kunti tying a rakhi to her grandson Abhimanyu.

 

On this day, a sister ties a rakhi around the wrist of her brother in order to pray for his prosperity, health and well-being. The brother in return offers gifts and promises to protect his sister from any harm and under every circumstance.
