Astrological Significance Of Raksha Bandhan


As per the Hindu mythology, once Lord Indra sought help from Guru Brihaspati (Lord Jupiter). It was the time when Indra had lost everything and demons were ruling everywhere. In order to help them, Guru Brihaspati had tied the Raksha Sutra (safety band) on the wrist of Indra. As a result, the Devas defeated Asuras and fetched their kingdom back.

It makes Guru a very significant planet for this day. You may get the blessings of Guru by worshipping the Guru Yantra and wearing the 5 Mukhi Rudraksha.
