Happy Raksha Bandhan!

The AGKBSS Executive Committee would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the sixth major festival within the Hindu Calendar for 2017.

Raksha Bandhan (which translates as “bond of protection”), celebrates the love and bond between brothers and sisters. On Raksha Bandhan sisters tie a “rakhi” (a sacred thread) on her bothers wrist as well as offering prayers, happiness and the well-being of her brother. In return, the brother promises to protect his sister(s) from harm or any other troubles.

If you are celebrating and want to share any pictures, please feel free to share them via our Twitter and Facebook feed!
