New Rakhi’s 🥰💎🔮👼🏼📿 Lucky Dip Rakhi Bracelets (The Universe will know which one you need the most!) 🙏🏼🤩📿📿 The word Raksha means protection, whilst Bandhan is the verb to tie. Traditionally, during the festival sisters tie a rakhi, a bracelet made of interwoven red and gold threads, around their brothers' wrists to celebrate their relationship.

Today the festival has developed with others joining in the festivities:

Priests tie rakhis around the wrists of congregation members.
Rakhis are often shared between close friends.
Women tie rakhis around the wrists of the prime minister.
Rakhis are tied around the wrists of soldiers.

Meaning of the rakhi

It is believed that when a woman ties a rakhi around the hand of a man it becomes obligatory for him to honour his religious duty and protect her.

Traditional stories state that rakhis are blessed with sacred verses and are encompassed by them.

Sometimes rakhis are consecrated in rice and grass before they are given, and they are traditionally tied by people familiar with the Vedas.

Following these customs the rakhi is believed to remove sin from one hand and provide safety to the other. The protection offered by a rakhi is believed to remain for a year. Customs and practices

As the rakhi is tied, a prayer is offered asking for happiness and prosperity.

Today rakhis are often decorated with multi-coloured silk thread, and often adorned with stones and beads.

Once the rakhi has been tied a mantra is chanted either in Sanskrit or Punjabi.

At the end of the ceremony the sister places a sweet in her mouth. Following this her brother gives her a small monetary gift of appreciation.

This festival has evolved over the years to encompass the importance of many people in Hindu society, yet foremost it continues to honour and uphold the relationship between a sister and brother.

It is a significant festival in the Hindu calendar, followed eight days later by Janamashtami.
