On this day sisters tie Rakhi on the wrist of their brothers and express their love to them. After receiving the rakhi from a sister, a brother sincerely takes the responsibility of protecting her sister.

Raksha Bandhan is mentioned in our epics as a festival of Gods. It is said that Yamuna, the sister of Yama, the lord of death used to tie rakhi to his brother on every shravan purima. Indrani tied rakhi to her brother Lord Indra. Yama was so impressed by the occasion that he declared that whoever got a rakhi tied from his sister would become immortal from that day onwards girls tie rakhi to their brothers wishing them along life.
