Raksha bandhan, the pious ritual of brothers and sisters, fall in the full moon in August every year. Apparently it is a decorative string that looks beautiful when it is tied on the wrist. The decorative dial tied with satin thread is actually a symbol of the love, respect, faith and dedication of the bond of sister and brothers. Rakhis are generally made on the day of festival itself. Generally sisters and brothers start a day with bathing in fresh water and adorn themselves in new clothes.
To start the ritual you should first offer some offerings, sweets, fragrance and traditional goodies. Tying the Rakhi is symbolic to the fact that you are having faith in the bond and relationship with your brother. The thread tying ceremony is preceded by offering aarti. The duty of brothers is to respond to the call of faith and extend his hand for tying the rakhi.
Traditions also say that the brother should bestow the sister with small gifts and money with their blessings.
There are several types of rakhi that are often selected by the sisters for their beloved brothers. Take a look.
