Known as the land of festivals, a number of festivals are celebrated throughout the year in India as a true representation of its rich and diverse culture and traditions.

These festivals are as diverse as the country’s scenic landscapes and as lively as the people residing there. The true spirit of India is expressed in these festivities where people pay homage to their gods and goddesses.

Different festivals pertain to different occasions. Some of them celebrate different seasons, the harvest of crops, while others celebrate occasions of religious nature - like the birth of saints and divine beings.

Most of these festivals are common to most parts of the country while some are specific to certain regions. One of the most famous festivals celebrated in India is Raksha Bandhan.

Raksha and Bandhan and the Month of Shravana

Mostly celebrated in Northern India, Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Shravana. It is the fifth month of the Hindu calendar which starts near the end of July and ends in the third week of August.

This month is of great importance in the region as it usually brings with it the southwest monsoons. Most Hindus fast in this month on Mondays to Lord Shiva, and on Tuesdays to their goddess Parvati.

Shravana is considered as a holy month because a number of other religious festivals, besides Raksha Bandhan, such as Krishna Janmashtami (birth of Lord Krishna), Nag Panchami (worshipping the snake god Naga), Salono (quite similar to Raksha Bandhan but is celebrated as a distinct festival) and Shravani Mela (pilgrims bringing holy water about hundred kilometers on foot from the river Ganges) also fall in this month.

A Tradition that Transcends Religion

The festival of Raksha Bandhan isn’t just limited to Hinduism. In fact, it’s celebrated in a few other religions as well such as Jainism and Sikhism.

The Jain community ties rakhi on the legs of the wooden bench on which Jain saints usually sit, as they believe the Jain saints to be the saviors of the religion and thus express their gratitude and loyalty towards them by tying the rakhi. The Jain saints also distribute sacred threads amongst their devotees. On the other hand, the Sikh community, much like the Hindus, celebrate the brother-sister bond where the sister ties a rakhi around her brother’s wrist and offers a gift to him in the form of money or sweets. The brother, in return, promises to look out for her.

Origin of Raksha Bandhan

The word Raksha means protection, and Bandhan refers to the verb “to tie”. The history of Raksha Bandhan dates back in Hindu mythology. The story of Lord Krishna and his sister, Draupadi. Krishna cut his finger while handling sugarcane. Draupadi tore a piece of her sari and tied it around Krishna’s finger to stop the bleeding. Seeing this act of love and care from his sister, Krishna vowed to protect and help her whenever she needed it.

Hence came the tradition of sisters tying a sacred thread called rakhi around the wrists of their brothers. This symbolizes the affection and bonding between a brother and a sister.

Customs and Traditions

On this festive occasion the sister performs a special prayer for her brother called “Aarti”, applies “tilak” (made up of dried rice flour dyed red) on his forehead and ties the sacred thread rakhi around his wrist. She prays for his wellbeing, prosperity, and health and in return, the brother offers her a gift and vows to protect her for life.

This festival symbolizes the sacred relationship of eternal love between a brother and her sister and it is not necessary for them to be biologically related. It can also be celebrated among distant relatives like cousins, sister, and sister in law, aunt and nephew as well.

This year, the festival of Raksha Bandhan will likely fall on Thursday, 15th August. It is celebrated throughout the country with great zeal and zest. People begin preparations for it about a month in advance. Ladies begin to shop for rakhis and everybody tends to look for the most elegant, fabulous one.
