Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi Purnima, is celebrated on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Shravana. It is also called as Kajri Purnima or Kajri Navami in Northern India. Raksha Bandhan is a Sanskrit word, where ‘Raksha’ means ‘Protection’ and ‘Bandhan’ means ‘to tie’, it basically means ‘to tie the knot of protection’. The festival reinforces the bond between brother and sister. It is advisable to tie the sacred thread on the auspicious time.
