Raksha Bandhan Vrat Katha: Story of Raksha Bandhan

In accordance with the legend, in ancient times the king was sacrificing sacrifices to overcome the heaven of gods. Then Devaraja Indra prayed to Vishnu to guard all of the gods from King Bali. After this, Srihari Vamana took an incarnation as a Brahmin to seek alms from King Bali. The Brahmin requested Bali for 3 pug of land in charity. Bali thought {that a} small Brahmin, how a lot of land he would be capable of taking in three steps. Thinking so, Bali promised to provide three steps of land to Vamana.

Srihari started increasing his stature within the Brahmin period and measured the whole earth in a single step. Within the second leg, the entire brahmand was measured. After this, the Brahmin requested Bali, where should I put the third leg now? King Bali understood that they don't seem to be extraordinary Brahmins. Bali sacrificed his head to have a 3rd leg. Seeing this, the Vamana avatar was happy and came in the form of Vishnu and asked Bali to ask for a boon.

• King Bali stated to Lord Vishnu that you need to always be with me in hell. God accepted this and went to Hades with the king. When Mahalakshmi came to learn about this, she too went to Hades and tied Raja Bali's wrist on his wrist and made him his brother. After this, Bali requested Goddess to ask for a present, then Lakshmi asked for Lord Vishnu. King Bali obeyed his sister Lakshmi and returned to Vishnu.

• It's believed that since then the festival of Rakshabandhan is being celebrated. Every year the sisters tie a protecting coat on their brother's wrist and pledge to guard the siblings.
