Raksha Bandhan aslo has special importance in the crucial festivals of Hinduism. Year after year, on the full moon day of sawan month, this festival is commemorated all over the world including India. This time around this festival will be observed on 3rd August 2020.

The special thing about this festival is that on this day the last Monday of the month of Sawan is also close at hand so that this festival will be even more appealing. The holy festival of Raksha Bandhan is dedicated to the untiring love and affection of brothers and sisters.

On this day, the sister ties a sutra on the brother’s wrist and in return presents the sibling with the vow of taking care her.


In present time, the festival of Rakhi is viewed as being connected only with brother and sister. However, many legends mention that in primeval times, sagas used to tie up a sutra on their king’s wrist as a pledge of safe keeping.

In this matter Pandit Sunil Sharma stated that the festival of Raksha Bandhan is not just a festival of brothers and sisters. Whereas it is a festival of protection from the word of Rakhi that is Raksha Sutra.

Many people still see it as a promise of safety. You too must have seen that whenever there are any religious rituals, Yagya etc. In the house, temple, etc., after the aarti, the thread is tied on the wrist of everyone by the Pandit which is also known as Mouli.
