Welcome
Send Rakhi to India >> Rakhi Poornima

The month of Shravana is the month of gods and pujans (worships), the full moon day being the most important day of all. The Rakhi Purnima is important in more than one way. It is celebrated differently throughout the country. The reasons may be different, the names altered, the rituals, deviant but one thing that does not change is the prayer and pledge for protection 'Raksha'.

In the Western Ghats the rakhi is considered to be an offering to Lord Varuna, The Lord of the sea. Lord Varuna is offered Coconuts. As a ritual coconuts are thrown into the sea on this day. The festival here is known as Nariyal Purnima. It also marks the beginning of the fishing season.

This festival is called Avani Avittam in South India. It is an important day for the Brahmins. The first take a holy bath and then change their holy thread (Janeyu) chanting the mantras. They take a vow to perform the brahmanik duties as prescribed in the holy books and adopt a good conduct and dignity. The Janeyu represents the vow for adherence to vedic culture, observance of Hindu traditions and service to humanity. The ceremony is called Shravani or Rishi Tarpan. All Brahmans celebrate it in the same way

In Northern India, Rakhi Purnima is also called Kajri Purnima or Kajri Navami, when wheat or barley is sown. Goddess Bhagwati is worshiped and farmers seek her blessings for a good crop.

The name Baleva signifies the might of King Bali and his devotion to lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi.

In Gujarat people offer water to Shiva Linga every Monday of the year. On the Rakhi Purnima they offer water and pray to God for forgiveness. In one ceremony known as Pavitropana, a few twisted filaments of cotton are soaked in panchagaivya (mixture of cow's ghee, milk, curd,urine and excreta) and then fastened around a shivalinga

Raksha Bandhan in scriptures is described as the 'Punya Pradayak', the day that bestows boons to the generous 'Vish Tarak' the destroyer of venom or the vicious 'Pap Nashak' the destroyer of sins.
