Festival for Siblings

 

The festival for siblings
The time for renewal
It’s the moment to celebrate
The bond of pure love
Raksha means bondage
Bandhan means protection
The sacred thread of Rakhi
Tied upon one’s right wrist

A sandalwood tilak is applied
On the center of the forehead
The symbol of eternity
Embellished for purity
Rose water sprinkled
For God’s grace
Food of sweetness is fed
For the rest of the days

Words of wisdom
They will everlastingly ring
It is the day of promise
The day of bond
The day to renew the spirit
For brotherly vision
Sisters and brothers are one
