Raksha Bandhan 2023: Celebrating the Bond of Love and Protection

Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a significant Hindu festival that holds a special place in the hearts of brothers and sisters. Celebrated on the last day of the Sawan or Shravana month, on the auspicious full moon day, this festival signifies the strong bond of love and protection between siblings.

This year, according to the Drik Panchang, Raksha Bandhan falls on Wednesday, August 30. However, due to Bhadra Kaal, the celebration can also be observed on August 31. The shubh muhurat for tying the Rakhi and performing the associated rituals is after 9:01 pm on August 30. For those who couldn’t participate on the night of August 30, the ceremonies can be conducted before 07:05 AM on August 31.

The Essence of Raksha Bandhan

On this cherished day, sisters tie a sacred thread, known as the ‘rakhi,’ on their brothers’ wrists. This act symbolizes their love and care for their brothers’ well-being and longevity. In return, brothers express their affection by offering gifts and pledging to stand by their sisters through thick and thin.
