The festival of Rakhi is considered very special. This festival is considered special for siblings. Brothers and sisters celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm. There is a story behind this festival which we are going to tell you today.
Mythology - Once the war started between Lords and Demons, the demons started dominating. Lord Indra panicked and went to Guru Brihaspati and started narrating his agony. Indrani, Indra's wife, was listening to all this. She sanctified a silk thread with the power of mantras and tied it on her husband's wrist. It was the day of Shravan Purnima. Indra got the victory in this war. Since then it is believed that Indra got victory by wearing this silk thread.
Since then, on the day of Shravan Purnima, the practice of tying this thread is going on. It is said that this thread is believed to be fully capable of giving opulence, wealth, power, happiness and victory. By law and practice, on the full moon day in the morning, Hanuman Ji and ancestors should be remembered. After touching the feet, earthen lamps should be lit by offering water, roli, incense, flowers, rice, prasad, coconut, rakhi, Dakshina etc. It is said that all men and women of the house should tie a rakhi before the meal. Sisters apply tilak to their brother and give them coconut. Keep in mind that the Raksha thread should be tied.
