Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in Shravan month during full moon day or Purnima day. Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. The festival is usually observed in India, Nepal, and other parts of the Indian subcontinent. The word ‘Raksha’ means protection, while ‘Bandhan’ means bond or relationship.
During Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a sacred thread, known as Rakhi, on the wrist of their brothers as a symbol of their love, respect, and protection. In return, brothers pledge to protect their sisters from any harm and offer them gifts and sweets.
Raksha Bandhan usually falls on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana, which usually falls in August. The festival is also celebrated by people from other religions and communities who share a similar bond of love and protection.
Apart from celebrating the bond between brothers and sisters, Raksha Bandhan also symbolizes the unity and harmony among different communities and the importance of protecting each other from any harm.
