On Raksha Bandhan, the sisters wake up early in the morning and prepare for the Rakhi festival. One must put the Rakhi in a thaali with a small diya, akshat (rice mixed with turmeric), kumkum, sweets. First, pray with your entire family in front of God and perform small pooja and later, carry out the rakhi celebrations. Post the ritual, brothers treat their sisters to gifts and sweets in return.
Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in the month of Shravana during a full moon day or Purnima, as per the Hindu Panchang (calendar). The auspicious timing for tying rakhi is between 06.15 AM to 05.31 PM on the same date. The best time to tie rakhi is during Aparahna or late afternoon.
Significance of Raksha Bandhan: The day is important as it signifies the bond between a brother and a sister and the undying love that they have for one another. The day stands for the love a brother has for his sister, and the lengths to which he would go to protect her. The tying of the Rakhi is considered sacred as it stands for the promise a brother makes to his sister that he will protect her at all cost.
