Hello friends, welcome to Indian Art & Culture. As you all know Raksha Bandhan will come in some days. So now we are discussing What Is The Meaning Of Raksha Bandhan?. So let’s start…
On this occasion of a pure festival and also a festival filled with happiness, lots of Greetings and Congratulations, for the meeting of brother and sister, and along with that I extend the Greetings for Raksha Bandhan to everyone, today is a day filled with happiness, why today is a day with happiness? because today, is a special day, for the brother to shower his love on his sister, and the affection which the sister has kept inside her, to express that, this festival is an instrument for that, so today is a big day to exchange, give and take happiness, and today is also the day of the auspicious meeting of brother and sister, and seeing the auspicious meeting between the brother and sister, the family also becomes very pleased and happy.
So today, we will discuss, about this pure festival of Raksha Bandhan, the pure festival of Raksha Bandhan says, the good day of Coconut Day, says that the virtues which we have, which are complete in their own percentages, or we are rich in our own stage, so all that happiness, affection, desires, our wishes, invocation, blessings, all this put together, on whom do we shower everything, we shower all this on whom? Our brother who is like Moon, When we love our brother or express it, we say, my brother is absolutely like the Moon, he like the Moon should shine in the sky why should he shine like the Moon? As the Moon, with its coolness, makes everyone happy, similarly, my brother too, become a person who spreads happiness to all, this is the blessing from the sister, what does the sister do? She does Aarti for him, with her both hands she takes the plate in a clockwise direction over his head.
Why does she do this in Raksha Bandhan? She does this, as she wants her brother, to be complete like the Moon, and rich. Firstly, Lord Ganesh is worshipped, Shri Ganeshji had a very vast intellect, he used to recognize things before time, he had the foresight, hence his power of reasoning, gave him the right decisions, similarly, I enrich my brother, with all these virtues in his intellect, with these good wishes, she does Aarti him, you sisters may have never thought, why you perform this ritual Aarti, did you ever ask yourself or your elders, by doing this ritual we give them our heart filled happiness and bless them, we extend our good wishes from our heart towards them, that my brother should always be happy, healthy, always complete with wealth whether it is physical or money, grains, clothes, he should always be enriched, because Supreme Father, Supreme Soul, who is Father to us souls, he too for us children, when we consider ourselves to be souls when we feel that we are souls, then when we do the actions through the physical sense organs, and that too.
In the remembrance, of the Supreme Father, Supreme Soul, by taking that spiritual love, so, Supreme Father, Supreme Soul, too, whatever be the subtle treasures, of knowledge, virtues, powers, of love, whatever be the treasures, God showers it on us children and He blesses us children, so the festival of Raksha Bandhan has been connected with Coconut day, there is also one more reason, on this Raksha Bandhan day, Coconut day, The Brahmins, all the Brahmins go near the seashore or go to the rivers which have emerged from the sea, and when they go there, the symbols of Brahmins being top-notch, the second being the thread on his body and the third being, the reading of religious texts all the three rituals he does in front of the sea, and taking the pure water of the sea in his hands, he takes a vow in his mind, and through the mind, he connects with his God, he binds to God and that promise will surely be this, that he wants to keep himself free from negativity and there be positivity in his life, that he desires for, so that thread reminds him of being a Brahmin, Brahmin who is called as ‘DWIJ,’ the one who takes birth twice.

So, on this day, Brahmins also change the thread on Raksha Bandhan, and once again whatever be the things connected with Brahmin, the virtues, nature, Sanskar, by remembering them, he takes a new thread, so my sweet sisters, my sweet brothers, today, you can shower us sisters with lots of spiritual and physical love, and will also exchange the happiness of being related, and dear sweet sisters, by tying on the wrist, this thread of love, and in this way you connect the thread of hope with him, for many births, this strong bonding with the same brother continues, with this good wishes, you tie the rakhi on the brother’s wrist, and the brother by touching your feet, by paying his respects to you, as you give him pure love, you with your spiritual, pure love protect him, you think good about him, always ask for blessings for him always, he should be happy, such good thoughts keep emerging in your mind for him.
So. he also by thanking you is overjoyed and is very blessed to have a sister like you, and he cannot remain without giving his respect to you, and then, you give your sweet brother sweets and make him very sweet, you talk sweetly, use very loving words, and if you are not talking like that, then, today gives him the title of, ‘sweet, sweet’ and express your love for him, if you can write a song then sing it for your brother, or recite some the poem, so, express the love for your brother, not like, keep it within your mind, no, the brother will be very happy, and yes, dear brother, you too have to do the same thing, you have to make her swing in the swing of happiness, many sisters, keep waiting, having this the hope of swing, for the past one year, like when will Raksha Bandhan come, and my brother will come to my house, so every sister is happy, every brother is happy, each family is happy today.
Ayes, there is one wave emerging, within, and this being, there is the sound of a few which can be heard, that I have no brother or that I had a brother, but, now he is not there, my brother is there, but he is staying very far away, he will not be able to reach me on that day, so what should I do? A very simple the answer, ‘Tumhi ho Mata, Pita Tum Hi Ho, Tum Hi Ho Bandhu Sakha Tum Hi Ho, what is the meaning of ‘Bandhu,’ God is our brother also, so, today, whichever, god or goddess you believe in, your favorite deity, whether it is Krishna, Ram, or formless Shiv, or Shivling, whoever it may be, you with this Rakhi filled with love, tie Him this the thread of love, in the mind with great reverence and feelings, remembering God, talk with Him saying that you are my brother, and this bond of love, through this thread, you reach it to my brother, ok, my sisters, so, today what will you do? you will tie the thread of love to yourself, tie to the brother, if not, you will tie it to your favorite deity, and in this way, this festival of Raksha Bandhan, with your brother or making your favorite deity your brother, have an auspicious meeting with Him, will celebrate Raksha Bandhan.
Maybe you may not wish, but, somewhere in the heart this does arise, that I should get some gift from the brother, what the brother will give me, this inquisitiveness will remain, and the brother too, from the point of view, of what is happening in this world, the brother also keeps this as a surprise, and he too secretly, brings some gift for the sister, and by giving the gift which she likes makes her happy, so my sweet brothers, my sweet sisters, today is your day, have a very nice and auspicious meeting with each other, celebrate through the spiritual eyes, embrace each other, celebrate, by going through memory lane, of the past incidents, enjoy with each other, celebrate by refreshing those happy moments, and with the brother, yes, the delicious food items, which the brother likes, which you have made, you feed the brother, then, the brother will feed the sister, and in this way by exchanging happiness and also exchanging good wishes, you will celebrate this festival of Raksha Bandhan. So, once again I extend Greetings and Congratulations on this pure festival to all of you.
