This time the festival of Raksha Bandhan 2020 is coming on the fifth and last Monday of Savan and on the day of bathing Poornima fast. Raksha Bandhan festival will be celebrated on the last Monday 3 August of the month of Savan.
Why: Raksha Bandhan
There are stories behind celebrating this festival. If we look at its beginnings, it is not a festival of brotherhood, but a Raksha Bandhan of victory. According to the Bhavishya Purana, the story which is found is as follows.
After a long time, there was a war between the gods and the Asuras. War continued for 12 years and finally, the Asuras conquered the gods and conquered the three worlds including the throne of Devraj Indra. Indra then approached the planet Jupiter, the guru of the gods and sought advice. Brihaspati asked him to do defense legislation with chanting.
Guru Brihaspati started the Raksha Vidhan Sanskar on the full moon day of Shravan month. During this Raksha Vidhan, Raksha Patali was strengthened by chanting. After the puja, this bundle was fastened by Devraj Indra’s wife Shachi, also known as Indrani, on the right hand of Devraj Indra of this defense bundle. It was through this power that Devraj managed to defeat Indra and regain his lost kingdom.
Presently this festival is synonymous with love of sister and brother, it can be said that this is a festival to deepen the sacred relationship of brother and sister. On the one hand, while the sister gives a promise to fulfill her obligation towards the brother and sister, on the other hand, the sister also fasts for the brother’s long life.
The Rakhi sister who binds on the wrist of the brother on this day is not just a thread or thread of silk, but also the power of sister-brother’s unbreakable and sacred love and the power of protection is contained in that ordinary thread.
