Raksha Bandhan Colouring Pages

The story behind the Raksha Bandhan.

Hindus commemorate the tie between brothers and sisters on Raksha Bandhan, also known as “the bond of protection.” On the full moon of the Shravana month, it is observed. rakhi, or holy thread, is tied by the sister to her brother’s wrist to commemorate the event.
In exchange, the brother promises to take care of his sister and gives her gift. The Swets are traded.

Rakhi was frequently used by women throughout Indian history to request protection from men who were neither their brothers nor fellow Hindus.
When Rani Karnavati of Chittaur was threatened by Bahadur Shah of Gujarat, she sent rakhi to the Mughal Emperor Humayun.

A continuing military operation to rescue her was abandoned by Humayun.

In order to demonstrate solidarity, the rakhi may also be fastened on other noteworthy dates, as was done during the Indian independence movement.
The Demon King Bali, according to tradition, was a great follower of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu left his home in Vaikuntha to take on the responsibility of protecting his domain. Lord was wished back to his home by the goddess Lakshmi. In order to find safety till her husband returned, she traveled to Bali dressed as a Brahmin woman.

Lakshmi tied the holy thread to the King at the Shravan Poornima festivities. When questioned, she identified herself and explained her purpose for being there. The monarch was moved and gave everything he had to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. Because of Bali’s devotion to the Lord, the event is also known as Baleva. It is stated that ever since then, it has become customary to invite sisters to the Raksha Bandhan celebration on Shravan Poornima.

This day is observed as Nariyal Poornima throughout western India, as well as in some areas of Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Goa. As a sign of devotion to Lord Varuna, the water god, a coconut offering (nariyal) is made to the sea on this day. The beginning of the fishing season is marked by Nariyal Poornima, and as fishing is their main source of income, they make a sacrifice to Lord Varuna in hopes of harvesting an abundance of fish from the sea.

This day is observed as Kajari Purnima in central India’s Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Jharkand, and Bihar. For farmers and mothers who have been blessed with sons, it is a significant day. The first day following Shravana Amavasya is when the Kajari festival preparations begin. Women who have sons undergo a variety of rites from this ninth day, known as Kajari Navami, to Kajri Poornima, or the day of the full moon.
