Story behind Raksha Bandhan

Pandit Jagannath Guruji mentions that there are a few interesting stories related to Raksha Bandhan in the shashtras, of which the most popular is that of king Bali and goddess Lakshmi. It so happened once that king Bali imprisoned many of the deities and gods in the ‘Patal Lok’ and goddess Lakshmi had to reach out to him. She tied a Rakhi on his wrist in lieu of which the king agreed to set all gods and deities free from prison. He, however, imposed a condition that all those being set free would have to spend at least four months every year in the prison.

How to celebrate

When asked about the rituals, Pandit Jagannath Guruji said that the first thing to do is arrange a plate full of holy red powder (roli), sandal, rice grains, curd, rakhi, sweets and ghee. The plate should first be kept in the puja room. The brothers need to sit facing either east or north direction, following which the sisters can start with putting the holy red powder on their forehead, following which they can tie the rakhi and wish for his long life by offering him the sweets. Also, one should not forget to cover the head with a piece of cloth while performing the rituals. Once the rakhi is tied, the siblings should seek the blessings of their parents and exchange gifts.
