When I see my Grandson Yajvin 13 and grand daughter Mishka 7 , talking about an upcomming festival of Raksha Bandhan with so much of Enthusiasm , remembered my own Cycle of life .
When you are surrounded by 5 elder sisters and 2 younger sisters so on this festival of Raksha Bandhan both hands used to be full with Rakhis tied on my both hands as one hand will not accommodate 7 Rakhis during my Childhood .
India is Land of Festivals , which were designed for spiritual growth , emotional maturity and mental development all around the Year .
Raksha bandhan is a traditionally Hindu festival, in which sisters tie a Sacred band, Amulet or Talisman called a ‘Rakhi’ around the wrists of their Brothers .
Raksha’ means Security and ‘Bandhan’ means Bond, which clearly signifies the meaning behind the Hindu festival. It celebrates the bond between siblings, or Brother and Sister .
It is a True Love Bond which becomes stronger and stronger with every year . it is a great Social Security and very good factor for Mindfullness and Spiritual Growth for both brothers and sisters .
ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात्पूर्णमुदच्यते ।
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
ॐ Aum! That is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.
The infinite proceeds from the infinite.
(Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
It remains as the infinite alone.
Aum! Peace! Peace! Peace!
( Science believe that we are in a expanding universe , in my opinion this is the Mantra or Law of Expanding Universe or Cycle of Life )
Love all .
