The Festival of Rakhi

 

 

Rakhi is the bond of love that's shared between a brother and a sister. With one of the deepest and the noblest emotions shared between the siblings, Raksha Bandhan or rakhi is the day of bonding that's signified by tying the holy thread around the wrist of the brother. The Rakhi is a thread that's wrapped with sisterly love and sentiments of love, warmth and respect. Rakhi means 'a bond of protection' and signifies the promise of protection that the brother makes to his sister. The festival of Rakhi is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravan. Rakhis are generally made of silk with gold and silver threads and are beautifully embroidered with glitter and decorated with semi precious stones.

 

 

 

Rakhi 'the Social Bonding'

 

Rakhi is a festival that not only strengthens the bond of love between brothers and sisters but also brings friends and strangers closer. When a rakhi is tied on the wrists of close friends and neighbors it acts as a way to connect individuals on a new platform and brings them closer. It also helps in building the friendly feeling of brotherly love among friends and neighbors as well.

 

 

 

The Festival of Rakhi

 

In the parts of Northern India, Rakhi Purnima is also called Kajri Purnima or even Kajri Navami. This is the time when wheat or barley is sown and the goddess Bhagwati is worshipped. In the other parts of India like the western states the festival is called Nariyal Purnima or the Coconut Full Moon.

 

In southern India, Shravan Purnima is a very important religious occasion.Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is known by many names like Vish Tarak - the destroyer of venom, Punya Pradayak - the bestower of boons, and Pap Nashak - the destroyer of sins.

 

So come and share this beautiful bond with your friends, brothers and sisters and bask in this sibling feeling of Rakhi.
