Raksha Bandhan: The bond of protection

Observed on the full-moon day during Shravana (July-August), the 5th month in the Hindu lunar calendar. This year, it will be celebrated on the 22nd of August. A cultural tradition of India, the festival celebrates not just the relationship between siblings and cousins but also a chosen tie between two people that transcend family, religion and class.

Customarily, the sister ties a threaded amulet on this auspicious day, known as a ‘Rakhi,’ around her brother’s wrist. She then applies tilak on his forehead and performs aarti to pray for her brother’s health and well-being. Thus, the Rakhi symbolizes the brother’s oath to protect his sister throughout her life and the sister’s prayers and blessings for her brother’s protection and well-being. In return, the brother gives a gift, a token of affection and a commitment to her well-being.

Fun Facts:

  • Tikka is a mark made on the forehead with sacred ‘roli’ or red powder, the red signifying strength.
  • Tikka is put on the forehead between the brows, the site of the Ajna Chakra. Ajna means perception, ‘to be aware of’ or intuitive.
  • There is a growing trend of rakhi being tied between sisters, in families without male siblings, to honor the sentiment of looking out for each other.

The White Mulberry honors this festival with an offering of gift boxes and baskets, and hopes to fulfill the needs of the ritual, with an assortment of additional personalized services to convey the thought and care of loved ones.
