In this post you can find happy raksha bandhan images for your brother & sister. Here we are post some historical & religious of this festival (Raksha Bandhan).
Although the role of love and duty between brothers and sisters in India is not a single day, but due to the historical and religious importance of Raksha Bandhan, this day has become so important. This festival, which has been going on for years, is still celebrated with great enthusiasm.
Celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu Shravan month (July-August), this festival is a symbol of brother’s love for sister. On Rakshabandhan, sisters tie rakhi on the right wrist of their brothers, tilak them and take a pledge to protect themselves from them. However, the scope of Raksha Bandhan is much more than this. The tying of Rakhi is no more an activity between brother and sister. Rakhi is also being tied to protect the country, protect the environment, protect interests, etc.
Historical importance of raksha bandhan (history)
The history of Rakshabandhan is in Hindu mythology. The context of Rakshabandhan is found in the legend named Vamanavatar. The story goes like this – King Bali tried to take possession of heaven after performing a yajna, then Devraj Indra prayed to Lord Vishnu. Vishnu ji came to be a Vamana Brahmin to ask for alms from King Bali.
Despite the Guru’s refusal, Bali donated three steps of land. Lord Vamana measured the sky, the underworld and the earth in three steps and sent King Bali to the abyss. On the strength of his devotion, he took a promise from Vishnu to be in front of him at all times. Lakshmi ji got worried about this. On the advice of Narad ji, Lakshmi ji went to Bali and tied the rakshasutra and made him her brother. In return she brought Vishnu with her. That day was the full moon date of the month of Shravan.
There are many references to the importance of Rakhi in history. Maharani Karmavati of Mewar had sent Rakhi to Mughal King Humayun and requested for protection. Despite being a Muslim, Humayun kept the shame of Rakhi.
It is said that Sikandar’s wife had tied a rakhi to her husband’s Hindu enemy Puru and made him her brother and took a vow not to kill Sikandar during the war. Puru gave life to Sikandar by honoring the promise he made to his sister by wearing a rakhi tied in his hand during the war.
Rakhi (Raksha Bandhan) in Mahabharata
The festival of Raksha bandhan is also mentioned in Mahabharata. When Yudhishthira asked Lord Krishna how I could overcome all the troubles, Krishna advised to celebrate the festival of Rakhi to protect him and his army.
Krishna’s index finger was hurt while killing Shishupala, so Draupadi tore her sari and tied a rag on his finger to stop the bleeding. This was also the full moon day of Shravan month. Krishna had repaid this debt by saving his shame at the time of chirharan. In the festival of Raksha Bandhan, there is a sense of mutual protection and cooperation of each other.
