Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is a very popular ceremony in India and symbolizes the sacred bond between brothers and sisters. It is a relationship that cannot be explained, but it feels like an unusual relationship.
This relationship has a dedicated day in India, where the sister is called Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi, who binds the talisman or amulet, a sacred thread called Rakhi, on the wrist of the brother, and the brother promises to protect her at all times. The meaning comes from Raksha meaning protection and “Bandhan” meaning tie, hence the name of the festival. Raksha Bandhan.
In its purest sense, India’s festival of Rakhi celebrates the eternal love of a brother and sister relationship that is no longer limited to blood. In India, this festival is celebrated among cousins, sisters, aunts, nieces, and all other relationships. It is also a ritual associated with Salerno, in which sisters place barley buds behind their brother’s ears.
Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is one of the important festivals of Hinduism in India and other countries such as Nepal, Pakistan, and Mauritius. In our mythology, there is a story behind this sacred festival. And how this goes…
Once there was a battle between gods and demons. Considered the god of sky, rain, and thunderstorms, Lord Indra was fighting on behalf of God, fighting the demon lord Bali. The war was not over and it took a long time. This is when Lord Indra’s wife Sachi asked for the blessing of Lord Vishnu, who gave her a bracelet of holy thread that could be tied around her husband’s wrist.
The bracelet gave Sir Indra enough strength to successfully defeat the demon. Seeing the power of the sacred thread, every woman used this thread as a prayer and tied it to her husband’s wrist when fighting. This holy thread is now slowly becoming a sacred thread between brother and sister relationships.
On Raksha Bandhan Day, a sister binds a rakhi to her brother’s wrist and prays for his prosperity, health, and well-being. In return, the brother sends his sister many gifts and blessings, promising to protect her from any evil before her.
