Raksha Bandhan is the thin thread of tradition that forever binds you and your brother in a secure bond of love and joy. One of the most profound emotions shared between a brother and sister, Raksha Bandhan, or Rakhi as it is called, is one of the most important festivals celebrated in India. The thread that the sister ties around her brother’s wrist is a special bond of protection, a vow that the brother takes to protect his sister from any harm that can befall her. Ancient Vedic traditions described Raksha Bandhan signifies that the strong must protect the weak from all that’s evil.
The market is flooded with the various types of Rakhi a good month before the festival. All rakhi serve only one purpose: to strengthen the bond of love between a brother and a sister. But have you ever thought of buying a Vedic Rakhi for your brother? Did you know that a Vedic Rakhi, apart from adorning your brother’s wrist, can also have various beneficial effects on his life because of the sacred stones and beads used in them?
