Raksha Bandhan History
Raksha Bandhan is merely one of the many teachings we may learn from the Mahabharata, which also teaches us how to live a lovely and honest life. One day in the Mahabharata, Lord Krishna sliced his finger, and a lot of blood began to flow.
As soon as Draupadi noticed, she tore a piece of fabric from her saree and placed it over the finger to stop the bleeding. The little piece of cloth was then made into a rakhi.
Because of the sacred thread, she sewed to the robe, Krishna pledged that he would defend her from all harm for the rest of his life.
Draupadi’s pride is protected by Krishna by offering an enormous piece of fabric when the Kauravas attempt to strip her naked by ripping her hair, bringing her to the court, and manhandling her.
