When will be Raksha Bandhan festival?

 


When will be Raksha Bandhan festival? 22nd August, Sunday, 2021. The festival celebrates the pious bond between a brother and a sister. The sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s right wrist as a mark of affection and prays for his long good life. It is one of the sacred festivals in India which is celebrated all over India.


The festival is celebrated in Shravana month during Purnima day or full moon day. The dates can vary each year as per the position of the Moon on that particular day.

There are many stories related to the origin of the festival. It is primarily believed that once Lord Krishna got injured by a sharp lethal weapon that took some damage on his finger. At that time Draupadi, who’s the wife of Pandavas, tore off a part of her sari and bandaged Madhav’s finger. Returning the favor, Lord Shri Krishna pledged to protect Panchali when she would be in any kind of trouble.
