Experience of Ganga "Some are old and feeble, weary with long journeys of life, emaciated by maladies, saddened from losses and troubles; and the morning air blows sharp, the river wave runs chilly. Yet there they stand, breast-deep in the cold river, with dripping cotton garments clinging to their thin or aged limbs, visibly shuddering under the shock of the water, and their lips blue and quivering, while they eagerly mutter their invocations. None of them hesitates; into the Gunga they plunge on arrival, ill or well, robust or sickly; and ladle the holy liquid up with small, dark, trembling hands, repeating the sacred names, and softly mentioning the sins they would expiate and the beloved souls they would plead for." Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1904)

Significance of Rakhi
A festival is the best way to celebrate glorious heritage, culture, and traditions. India is a country of rich cultural heritage. Just like every other festival, Raksha Bandhan is not just about celebrations or merrymaking. It is a festival that is imbued with rich underlying significance that has a spiritual, scientific, and social context. Rakhi is not restricted to the love and warmth shared between siblings. It emphasizes nurturing purity in thought, soul, word, and deed. The spiritual, scientific, and social significance of Raksha Bandhan enables us to put things into perspective and understand the underlying meaning of the festival in depth.
Spiritual Significance of Rakhi
The spiritual significance of Raksha Bandhan is when one takes a sacred divine vow of purity with God, to live a life of purity in thoughts, words, and actions. This sacred thread called a rakhi is a gentle reminder to protect ourselves spiritually from the vices. It upholds the values of protection, establishes righteousness and destroys the evils of the society. Raksha Bandhan is an occasion which establishes 'Papa Todak, Punya Pradayak Parva'. It is the day which bestows boons and removes sins as mentioned in the ancient sprictures. 
The Rakhi rituals signify the spiritualism that is intertwined with it. The ‘Tilak’ signifies soul consciousness which is a symbol of being victorious over body consciousness. Tying a Rakhi signifies the vow of purity taken by all souls. Even in the yesteryears, the rishis or gurus tied rakhi to the disciples who sought their blessings and promised to guide them on the spiritual path. They also tied the sacred thread to themselves to safeguard them from all the potential dangers. (Source: GiftstoIndia24X7.com)
