On this day, sisters tie a sutra on the brother's wrist to protect their brother and promise to protect their siblings.
At the time of Rajsuya Yagna, Draupadi had tied a piece of her cloth to Lord Krishna as a defense thread. After this, the tradition of tying Rakhi to brother started by the sisters. Brahmins tie Rakhi to their priests and wish them well. On this day, Vedpathi Brahmins begin the recitation of Yajurveda. Therefore it is considered one of the purest occasions in India.
