Tradition and Rituals of Raksha Bandhan
India is a land of traditions, culture and festivals. There are many festivals celebrated in India’s different regions; and Raksha Bandhan is one of them, which is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm. And now in other countries, people also celebrate this holy festival. Raksha Bandhan is the festival of brother and sister; and celebrated for the eternal bond of love between them. Raksha Bandhan is commonly known as “rakhi” as the rakhi thread is the important part of the festival and celebrated by tying this sacred thread on brother’s wrist by his sister. Raksha means ‘Protection’ and Bandhan means ‘Bond’ so this refers to “tying the knot of protection”.
On this auspicious day a sister ties rakhi on her brother’s wrist just to protect him from evil influences and the brother is supposed to act as a shield to protect his sister at the time of troubles or difficulties. It is an untold vow shared among siblings.
When and How Raksha Bandhan is Celebrated?
Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on full moon day of the month Shravana according to traditional Hindu calendar or falls on the month July or August every year, because of the full moon day it is also called as Rakhi Purnima. This year rakhi is falling on 18th august 2016; and those who will be staying far from their brothers they can send traditional rakhi with gifts online to India.

The custom or ritual of this festival is the day starts with taking bath and then the sister prepares the Pooja Thali with Roli, Kumkum, Akshat (rice grains), Diya, sweets and the Raksha Sutra. Then she puts Tilak on her brother’s forehead and throws rice grains or Akshat over the head and then she does Aarti by rotating the Pooja Thali with a lighted Diya in a clockwise direction in front of her brother’s face; of course with a safe distance.
And then she ties the rakhi thread on her brother’s right wrist and prays for his wellness and longevity; and takes his blessings by touching her elder brother’s feet and adores her younger sibling. Then the brother takes a vow to protect her from every problem in life; and then he gives gift or money to his sister as good omen and then both offers sweets to each other.
