Raksha Bandhan


Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a Hindu holiday that celebrates the purity and sacredness of the sibling bond. On this day, siblings pledge to always look out for and support one another. “Raksha Bandhan” literally translates to “safety bond.”

Raksha Bandhan is celebrated by Hindus on Purnima, a full moon day in the Sawan month. Sisters tie Rakhi around their brothers’ wrists, wishing them a wealthy, joyful, and rewarding life. Recently, brothers have begun putting Rakhis on the hands of their sisters, and sisters have been tying the holy band around one other’s wrists with the same commitment to cherish and care for one another.

Raksha Bandhan falls on August 30, Wednesday this year. After 9:01 p.m., the shubh muhurat to tie Rakhi and perform the Raksha Bandhan ceremony will commence.
