Raksha Bandhan - A Sanctified Celebration Of Kinship

25 April 2016

The denomination “Raksha Bandhan” is derived from the clerical Sanskrit language signifying “Tie of Safeguard” (“Raksha” meaning Safeguard and “Bandhan” meaning Tie). One of the most favored and sacred festivals of India, “Raksha Bandhan” is a pious commemoration of the ingrained nexus between a brother and a sister of the same blood, of the same family or of the same lineage. Patronage of historical anecdotes and gradual escalation of the communication between the two opposite sexes have further favored the welcome evolution of this commemoration in lauding the nurtured linkage between a man and a woman having no kinship connection but bonded from heart by the chaste fraternal feel. At this blessed conviviality a blood or “feel” sister decorates the right wrist of her blood or “feel” brother with a dappled and divine cord esteemed by Hinduism as Rakhi. This seraphic string fundamentally binds a brother with the vow of endorsing his sister in her every venture and cardinally urges a sister to yearn to God for her brother’s prosperity and peace. An essentially hallowed carousal, the fete of “Raksha Bandhan” is a gifted spectrum of India in evincing to the rest of the world the certitude and chastity of the “Bhai-Behen” (Brother-Sister) nexus shared by Indian men and women.

Glorified with a defined heritage of mind-riveting mythological tales and heart-filling historical yarns, the veneration of “Raksha Bandhan” is a 6000 years old one initiating at the time-period, when existed Indian sub-continent’s most plentiful and thriving civilization----the Indus Valley Civilization. Celebrated annually during the mid of August month, the particular stint of the festival of “Rakhi” arrives in accordance with the Hindu religious almanac as when comes “Shravan Purnima” or the day with a full moon night in the month of August. The bout of this distinctive “Shravan Purnima” traces its significance in Indian mythology where it has been expressed that it was during this holy spell that Goddess Lakshmi tied the pietistic band of Rakhi to the Vishnu-devotee demon king Bali at his palace. This exquisite and enticing mythological fable is also the nurturer of the revered Indian tradition of inviting one’s sister to one’s house during the heyday of Rakhi. Further, the cherished ritual of promising to pay heed to one’s sister’s well-being and emphasizing to God for one’s brother’s health and fortune also inherits its genesis from the enthralling mythological legend of Lord Yama---the God of Death and his sister Goddess Yamuna---the Goddess of the river Yamuna. The parable stresses that while blessing his own sister with her wish of tying Rakhi every year on her brother’s hand, God Yama also voiced out that every brother, who will show full devotion to the commitment of Rakhi, will be blessed with the boon of eternity. The cause of selecting a colorful cotton band as the celestial band of Rakhi is again encompassed in the mytho-historical epic of Mahabharata where it has been showcased that the Mahabharata princess Draupadi tore a part of her sari for bandaging a cut finger of Lord Krishna. This narrative of princess Draupadi and Lord Krishna is taken by Indians as the laying stone of the development of “Raksha Bandhan” festival in India and they also trace the origin of the virtuous Rakhi vows in this affecting tale which teaches to brothers and sisters, just how to protect each other during the most needy times of any one of the two. The sublime yellow or orange hue of the Rakhi cord also encircles a clerical definition as these two are the colors of Rakhi used by Goddess ‘Yamuna’ and Goddess ‘Laxmi’ to bedeck the wrists of their own brothers.

The celebration of the divine bash of Rakhi is essentially emblazed by dulcet Indian rituals. On the prime day of “Raksha Bandhan”, both the sister and the brother deck up themselves in the ethnic Indian garbs of Sari or Salwar Kameez and Pyajama Kurta or Punjabi Pyjama. They meet up, generally at parents’ house or at the house of the brother in the welcome presence of their parents, grandparents and other important elderly relatives. The brother and sister then sit face-to-face and the sister, at first, performs the beatific custom of “Aarti” wherein she revolves, with all the piety, for three times, a metal plate garnished with sweets, an enlightened candle or lamp and the blessed cord of Rakhi. “Aarti” is followed by the blessed praxis of “Tilak” at which, the sister graces her brother’s forehead with a colorful mark of vermillion and rice titled by Hindus as the “Tilak”. The prime observance of “Raksha Bandhan” follows the ritual of “Tilak”. After tying the Rakhi, if the brother is an elder one, then the sister touches her brother’s feet and avows to pray for the fortune and felicity of her brother for lifetime and the brother in return blesses his sister with the oath of being there for her in her every need during his lifetime. With the same sublime vows of each, if the sister is the elder one then the brother touches her feet with affirmation of adherence to her and the sister blesses him with heart-rendered heed for him. A candied ending to these solemn practices is made by realizing the sweet protocol of “Mooh Mitha” through which the brother-sister duet feed each other by their own hands a bite or two of sweets. The winsome episode of bestowing one’s brother with titillating presents and correspondingly showering the loving sister with fetching gifts is also an informal but prime affair of this heyday. Such enticing is the veneration of one of the most austere and ornate festivals of India - “Raksha Bandhan”.

The aforementioned praxes being the cardinal elements of the celebration of “Raksha Bandhan”, some riveting evolutions have made their way in this exquisite commemoration as time has moved on. For instance, the Rakhi or “Rakhadi” (as is known in Indian Colloquial Language), in the past, used to be of simple orange and yellow knitted strings---which has, with the pace of time, changed into Rakhis made of fluffy cotton, 'zari' paper, tinsel, beads etc, Rakhis like Rakhi with Cartoon Characters (for baby brothers), Musical Rakhi, Rakhi with Metal Chain, Rakhi with plating of Gold/Silver/Diamond, Bracelet Rakhi (a typical bracelet designed in the pattern of a Rakhi), Rudraksha Rakhi (made of the “Rudraksha” seed) and myriad of such engagingly innovative “Rakhadis”. Similarly, welcome changes have also got introduced in electing Rakhi special souvenirs for one’s brother or one’s sister. Whereas in the past, “Raksha Bandhan” gifts encompassed mainly garments and jewelries, modern day preferences of brothers and sisters range from cosmetics, perfumes, watches, auto gears, DVDs, books, Rakhi exclusive Greetings Cards with touchy phrases inscribed within, tempting chocolate assortments and so on. Variations have further arrived in the pattern of time-spending among “Bhais and “Behens” (Indian term for brothers and sisters) during the spell of “Raksha Bandhan”. During old times, quality time-spending signified the brother and sister enjoying a home-cooked savory meal and chatting and reminiscing revered childhood memories at the cozy comfort of home. But the modern generation bro-sis duets opt for, after the proper realization of the “Raksha Bandhan” ceremony, going out for shopping, movie-watching, eating out and outdoor merry-making. Thus has changed the dynamics of the traditionally trig “Raksha Bandhan” conviviality in India, with the fundamental fervor of coherence and caring remaining same and certain throughout the times.

Celebrated with utmost earnestness and deep-felt zeal mainly in the states of Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Orissa, the carousal of Rakhi is, however, recognized with much sincerity and devotion throughout India. A virtuous garb of the ethereal and eternal fraternal feel thriving among human race’s two opposite genders, covers the whole India during the pious bout of “Raksha Bandhan”.

Rakhi Purnima - A Blessed Spell Not-To-Be Hindered By Barriers Of Time And Distance

22 April 2016

The revelry of Rakhi (the virtuous tie) is one of the most cherished and awaited ceremonies of the Hindu society. A recognition of both the innate bond between biological brothers and sisters and of the mental bond of kinship among two unrelated man and woman, the conviviality of Rakhi is celebrated with all the exuberance and gaiety by Hindus in India and as well as across the world where they have put up. This consecrated occasion cardinally celebrates the devout nexus that is shared by a man and a woman of the same blood. Inherently crafted as a fete to venerate the relationship of blood brothers and sisters, the fete of Rakhi also endorses the dulcet linkage of fraternity between a man and a woman, who are connected to each other as brother and sister not by blood, but by heart. This essence of the carousal, titled as ‘Raksha Bandhan’ by the Hindus in India and throughout the world, demonstrates to the world the eternity and piety of the fraternal connection shared by the two opposite sexes of mankind.

The prime time of the chaste gala of “Raksha Bandhan” arrives annually on the day Hinduism terms as “Shravan Purnima” i.e. a mid-August day accompanied by a full moon night. In addition to the chaste deed of “Raksha Bandhan” i.e. tying of the blessed and chromatic string of Rakhi on the right wrist of the brother by his blood or soul sister, this day is further sequenced with some more aesthetic traditions of Hinduism like “Aarti’, “Tilak” and “Mooh Mitha”. The holy praxis of “Aarti” requires the sister to move around the face of her brother for three times, a metal plate or “Thali” decorated with a lit up candle or lamp, confectionaries and the colorful pious cord of Rakhi, with deep-felt affection and heed for her brother. This praxis is followed by the pleasing custom of “Tilak” which evinces bedecking one’s brother’s forehead with a colorful large spot by a mixture of rice and vermillion. The ceremony of “Raksha Bandhan” follows these two rituals, during the accomplishment of which a sister, by the uttering of hymns, prays to God for a healthy, hilarious and plentiful life for her brother and after the accomplishment of which a brother pledges, with all the sincerity, to shield his sister from any and every vice during the lifetime. The sweetened ending to these three protocols happens by the observance of “Mooh Mitha” at which both the sister and the brother feed each other with one or two bites of sweet. Accompanies these religious traditions, the blithesome affair of showering one’s brother with gladsome gifts and correspondingly bestowing the loving sister with fitting presents. Thus is practiced one of the most moral observances of Hinduism-“Raksha Bandhan”, with all the earnestness and buoyancy by the Hindus in India and throughout the world.

Modern Day 24*7 lifestyle has made it almost a well-o-wisp for brothers and sisters to get together and observe, with full devotion and perfection, the blessed fete of Rakhi. The craze for moving up and up the ladder of career and lifestyle has distanced brothers from sisters in different states or countries and vice versa. The rush towards success and opulence has got intensified to such a height that taking time out to meet up at the heyday of Rakhi becomes impossible even for brothers and sisters residing in the same city. During such a busy environ of present times, really fortunate are those brother-sister duos who unite and impeccably realize the divine commemoration of “Raksha Bandhan”. However for the rest unfortunate duos who, due to the compulsions of work-loads and deadlines and targets, remain unable to solemnize the pure stint of  Rakhi, there comes 21st Century’s most choice apparatus—the online shopping portals.

Raksha Bandhan - A Time-Honoured Veneration Of Fraternity And Devoir

19 April 2016

One of the most choice carousals of the Hindu community in this world, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ (‘Raksha=Protection ‘Bandhan’=Vinculum) or the fete of Rakhi (The Celestial Tie) encompasses a cultured history of 6000 years. The nascence of the divine observance, wherein by a psychedelic cotton band, brothers are plighted for eternity to safeguard and meliorate their sisters’ entity in any and every environ and whereas by tying the colourful cord, sisters are timelessly avowed to pray for their brothers’ abundance and gaiety, happened during the aeon of Indian Sub-Continent’s most flourishing and opulent civilization---the Indus Valley Civilization. Indian antiquity embraces some heart-brimming anecdotes about the heart-felt practice of this sublime ceremony of Rakhi.

The earliest chronicle in relation to the solemnization of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ has been traced back to 326 BCE, when the legendary Greek monarch Alexander the Great made inroads to India. Narratives vow that the monarch’s wife Roxana alias Roshanak sent the beatific string of Rakhi to king Porus, ruler of the Indian kingdom of ‘Kaikeya’ and urged him to not to injure her husband in the battlefield. During the combat, king Porus paid full homage to the pious nexus which had linked him with queen Roxana and letting go the chance---individually constrained from striking Alexander. A mid-seventeenth century Rajasthani recital encircles the hearty tale about the bond of fraternity between Rani Karnavati of the Rajasthani state of Chittor and emperor Humayun—that time ruler of India. This tale, dating back to 1535 CE, expresses that when the widow queen Karnavati got enlightened about her incapability to shield the fortress of Chittor in the face of the raid of the Sultan of the Indian state of Gujrat---Bahadur Shah, she sent the chaste cord of Rakhi to emperor Humayun and desired for his whole-hearted assistance. Emotionally affected by this blessed gesture of the queen, the emperor moved immediately with his force to preserve the Chittor fort. Though the emperor, due to late arrival, was unable to shield Chittor from the plunder of Bahadur Shah, this warmful yarn keeps on beaming as a pietistic ray in the defined deep heritage of the commemoration of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ surpassing the hindrances of caste and religion. Testimonies of the bygone years further voices that the sovereign of the Sikh Empire, Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his queen Maharani Jindan bolstered the concord in between the Sikh Empire and the country of Nepal by the realization of the conviviality of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ among the Sikhs and the Nepalis. This congenial gesture of the Maharaja and the Maharani was lauded with a true fervor by the monarch of Nepal, Jang Bahadur in the year 1849---when he bestowed Maharani Jindan with a haven in Nepal at the fall and conquest of the Sikh Empire by the British---thus showing a wholesome allegiance to the pledge of armoring his not biological but gifted sister as her Rakhi had shaped his relationship with her. A mytho-historical chronicle states that during the Mahabharata period, when while executing the notorious king Shishupal Lord Krishna cut his finger, Draupadi (the sanctified princess) at once ripped off a piece of her sari and dressed his wound. This deep-felt endeavor of the princess was cognized by the Lord as his ‘Fraternal Debt of Love’ and he avowed to Draupadi that in her most necessitous times every fabric of her torn sari will be restored by the Lord. Indeed as it happened, at Draupadi’s most destitute aeon Lord Krishna shielded her dignity by enwrapping her with a never-to-end cloak and hence demonstrated to mankind about the gravity of the vow taken by brothers to secure their sisters from any vice. This tale is honored by the Hindu community as one of the prime pillars behind the evolution of the carousal of ‘Raksha Bandhan’. The election of the bout of ‘Shravan Purnima’ (A Day with a Full Moon Night in the mid of August) as the stint to observe the sublime fete of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ also nurtures its origin from the mythological history of Goddess Laxmi tying the ethereal knot of Rakhi in the wrist of the demon king Bali on the pious period of ‘Shravan Purnima’.

As the aforementioned records of the old times evince, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is fundamentally the veneration of the bond of sorority between a man and a woman. Although, at pace with customs, the commemoration needs to be happened between blood brother and sister---noteworthy yarns of the bygone days cardinally prove that this nexus of comity inevitably have not to be between a biologically related brother-sister dyad-rather the yarns demonstrate how whole-hearted fealty had been shown to the vows of the ceremony by unrelated men and women linked by the divine cord of Rakhi. In this way, exploring the past and the evolution of the celebration of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ aids the Hindu community in realizing the connotation of kinship and camaraderie among the two genders.

Rakhi - An Expressed Thread Of Blood, An Evinced String Of Kinship

16 April 2016

The festival of Rakhi is a pious and popular Hindu celebration. A revered carousal among Hindus in India as well as among Hindus spread across the globe, Hindus term this fete as ‘Raksha Bandhan’. The term ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is a Sanskrit one expressing the meaning as the ‘Nexus of Protection’ (Raksha=Protection and Bandhan=Nexus). This veneration is a chaste celebration of the innate love between a brother and a sister. On this virtuous occasion a sister ties a chromatic string of cotton around the wrist of her brother as a beatific symbol of the bond between the two of them and thus is evinced the amore and commitment which is inherent in the bond between them. The observance of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is a cardinal endeavor to meliorate the relation between a brother and a sister and to make each of them realizes individual duty towards one another. As after receiving the deific Rakhi, a brother is ceremoniously sworn to defend and endorse his sister at all junctures of her life, so while knotting the pure cord of Rakhi around the wrist of her brother, the sister is also avowed by solemnity to pray every time for an opulent and felicitous life of her brother. The fundamentality of the ceremony of Rakhi lies in the certitude that compliance to this observance can be done by a pair of cousin brother and sister also and by any duo of man-woman who are mentally tied up by the camaraderie of brother and sister and not biologically. Exalted as ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and also as ‘Rakhi Purnima’, this moral gala is a cherished one in India and in the Hindu State of Nepal. Non-Residential Indians and Non-Residential Nepalis staying at foreign lands also laud this sacred commemoration with the same exuberant fervor like those in the homeland.

The expressed emphasis of the observance of Rakhi remains in the context that acknowledgement of this cultus can be found in ancient Hindu religious scriptures and mythological tales. The most noteworthy mythological tale encompassing the nascence of the veneration of Rakhi is that of the Hindu God of Death ‘Yama’ and His sister ‘Yamuna’---the Goddess of river Yamuna. The theistic narrative lays down that after a marked hiatus of 12 years when God ‘Yama’ visited Goddess ‘Yamuna’, She was profusely elated to see her brother and cooked a plethora of delicacies for ‘Yama’. She also tied a celestial yellow fabric band around the wrist of the Lord wishing for his prosperity. God ‘Yama’ was so jubilant at His sister’s endeavor that He urged the Goddess to ask for a present or blessing. The Goddess, in return, only asked for Her brother’s promise to come and visit Her more often. Lord ‘Yama’ was so stirred by his sister’s nature, that He not only gave Her, His words to come to Her frequently, but also sanctified Her with the benediction of immortality. In accordance with this anecdote, lies the Hindu belief that a brother getting his wrist garnished by the holy thread of ‘Rakhi’ and truly vowing to safeguard his sister for times to come, will be bestowed with the boon of immortality by God ‘Yama’. The consecrated Hindu clerical scripture of ‘Vishnu Purana’ also encircles a divine saga of the rite of Rakhi. The holy book claims that when God ‘Vishnu’ assented to live in the kingdom of his prime devotee Bali, the demon king, by leaving his own home ‘Vaikuntha’ (The Paradise)---the God’s wife Goddess ‘Laxmi’ became very pensive and on the day of ‘Shravan Purnima’ (A Day of Full Moon in the month of August) visited the king in the guise of a normal woman and knotted the deistic orange cotton strip of Rakhi around the wrist of the king. Emotionally affected by this gesture of a common woman, the king asked her to wish for a present from the king. The Goddess then showcased her true identity and desired for the return of God ‘Vishnu’ to ‘Vaikuntha’. Accepting with wholesome heartiness as his Sister, the king acceded to the Goddess’s wish and arranged for the Lord’s departure to ‘Vaikuntha’. In relation to this yarn, started the heartening Hindu tradition of inviting one’s sister to one’s house on the day of ‘Shravan Purnima’ for observing together the conviviality of Rakhi.

The momentousness of the bout of Rakhi is also hemmed in the definite deference to the various customs intensifying this beatific spell. On the heyday of Rakhi, falling essentially on the day of the full moon night in the month of August, sisters and brothers, both clad in traditional Indian wear of Sari or Salwar Kameez and Kurta Pyajama, come together at one place in the ubiety of grandparents and parents. They sit facing each other, and the sister, holding in her hand a silver or metal ‘Thali’ or plate dressed with sweets, an enlightened candle or lamp and the devout string of Rakhi, devotionally rotates the ‘Thali’ or plate for three times around the face of her brother---thus performing the spiritual protocol of ‘Arati’. After this, she garnishes her brother’s forehead with a colorful mark of powder and rice known as ‘Tilak’ and following this she ties the sanctified cord of ‘Rakhi’ around his pulse and chants the sanctified hymns of “I tie you the rakhi that was tied to king Bali, the king of Demons, O Rakhi I pray that you never falter in protecting your devotee”. The dulcet finale to this commemoration happens by the sister feeding, by her own hand, her brother one or two bites of sweets and correspondingly, the brother feeding his sister one or more portion of sweets by his own hand. The pietistic yellow or orange dye of the Rakhi cord also signifies a divine definition as these two are the colors of Rakhi used by Goddess ‘Yamuna’ and Goddess ‘Laxmi’ respectively to decorate the wrists of their own brothers. The aeon of Rakhi also embraces the mirthful tradition of exchange of presents between brothers and sisters. Bestowing one’s brother and one’s sister with winsome souvenirs is also a gladsome culture of this day. During this seraphic day, heart of every brother and every sister craves to shower his sister or her brother with delightful pleasantries. On this auspicious day, sisters also take care to radiate the cheerful ardor of the day to the brothers staying abroad by sending them Rakhi, Greetings Card or Assorted Sweets and thus to taint them with the chromaticity of this day.

The stint of Rakhi is exclusively for merry-making and quality time-spending between ‘Bhaiyas’ and ‘Behenas’ (Hindi words for Brother and Sister). But in the cloak of this carousal, this distinctive ceremony also boosts up the intrinsic fabric of fraternity within a family. Taking out time to arrange impeccably all the particulars of the observance and dedicating a whole day to her brother aids a sister to express exquisitely her nurtured love for her beloved brother and dedicating time to experience the sacred ceremony and buying with own discernment an exotic token for his sister with saved pocket money or hard-earned money, facilitates a brother to make his sister realize his heart-felt cohesion towards her. While epitomizing the instinctive linkage between a brother and a sister and their devoir towards one another, the gala of Raksha Bandhan also nourishes the ingrained love, heed and respect between biologically or mentally related brothers and sisters. Raksha Bandhan enhances a most natural and most close nexus of mankind.
