About Raksha Bandhan
Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is the Hindu festival that celebrates brotherhood and love. “Raksha” in Sanskrit means “protection” & “Bandhan” means “to tie”. So Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi refers to a sacred piece of thread tied by the sisters on the brothers’ wrists. The Rakhi represents love and compassion. In return, brothers vow to keep their sisters safe and happy for years to come.
This age old tradition is still widely followed all around the world. Sisters tie a Rakhi on their Brothers, and in turn they shower their sisters with love and gifts on this day.
Shikhazuri Rakhis come in different colours, styles and designs, but their purpose remains the same – to protect their brothers from evil and pray for their long life. The Ganesha Rakhi is a beautiful choice for brothers of all ages, and bestows the blessings of this deity on him.
“Sisters and brothers are the truest, purest forms of love, family and friendship, knowing when to hold you and when to challenge you, but always being a part of you.” – Carol Ann Albright Eastman
