Why Raksha Bandhan is celebrated
According to Vedic scriptures, Rakshika is known as Raksha Bandhan. Some people call Raksha Bandhan as Rakhi in informal language. The term "Raksha Bandhan" refers to protecting and promising to always protect somebody.

The auspiciousness of this festival increases when it falls on full moon day in Shravana maasa. This day is a new beginning for the truth to win over sin, morality to defeat immorality and humanity to win over animosity. The person who wants to defeat his enemies or rivals should worship the lord Varuna.

In South India, Hindus, Muslims, Sikh and Christians offer coconuts and flowers at the sea coast on this day. Coconut is considered as a form of lord Shiva because coconut also has three eyes like lord Shiva.

Other Sanskaras Associated with the Thread
There is a tradition of tying kalawa (thread) in every ritual performed in Hindu tradition. This thread is tied during Upnayan Sanskara of a child until the last sanskara performed. This thread of Raksha Bandhan is the symbol of emotional attachment. It is a bond of affection and faith. The sanskaras performed by tying a thread in Hindu tradition are Upnayan sanskara, marriage and Raksha Bandhan.

Since ancient times, there is a tradition of tying a protection thread round the trees. Women tie thread, offer roli, akshat, sandal, and worship the Banyan tree with incense sticks for the longevity of their husband. It is also believed that if you tie a thread around the Myrobalan tree, your family will prosper.

It is believed that the thread of Raksha Bandhan provides brothers with the power to protect their sisters. The symbol of Shravana, Rakhi gradually became popular in Rajasthan and other states and is known by different names like son, sona and sarmann etc.

Mantra of Raksha Bandhan
Sisters should chant the following mantra while tying the thread for the longevity of their brothers:

“Om Yen Badho Bali Raja, Danvendro Mahabalah!
Ten Tavam Prati Badhnami, Rakshe Ma Chal Ma Chal !!"
