RAKHI – RAKSHA BANDHAN
Aug 19 all-day

Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi (The Thread of Sibling Love) is a special occasion to celebrate this “Sibling Love” bonding by tying a holy thread around the wrist. This thread, which pulsates with sisterly love and sublime sentiments, is rightly called the Rakhi since it means “a bond of protection,” and Raksha Bandhan signifies that the strong must protect the weak from all that’s evil.

The ritual is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravan, on which sisters tie the sacred Rakhi string on their brothers’ right wrists, and pray for their long lives. Rakhis are ideally made of silk with gold and silver threads, beautifully crafted embroidered sequins, and studded with semi-precious stones.
