When is Rakhi in 2020?


Raksha Bandhan is a renowned festival that is celebrated all across the nation. This unique festival is celebrated without any discrimination in the caste or religion. People from all spheres take active interest and participation in the rituals. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the lunar month, Shravana or Sharvana Purnima. This festival also coincides with the Upa-Karma (a ritual for changing the sacred thread of the brahmins). Apart from being known as Raksha Bandhan, this auspicious festival is also known as Rakhi Purnima, Kajeri Purnima and Nariyal Purnima, in the different states of India and is celebrated in a different manner. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated between siblings by the means of tying a sacred thread, known as rakhi, in the wrist of the brother. This ritual involves praying with an “Aarti thali”, to wish for good health and fortune for the brother. This is why Raksha Bandhan also means as the “Bond of Protection”. It is not just the sister who prays for the brother but like-wise a brother also swears to protect his sister from all complications. To make it even more exceptional, a brother presents something special to his sister, on this auspicious occasion. Raksha Bandhan is scheduled to be celebrated on the 3rd of August for the year 2020, which would be a Monday.
