The festival of Raksha Bandhan is referred to as Rakhi Purnima as it falls on a full moon day in the Shravan month. The word 'Rakhi' symbolizes the bond of love and protection between a brother and sister while 'Purnima' means a full moon day. The day is actually a Shravan Purnima which is celebrated in different names all over India pertaining to their religious traditions and customs. This day holds immense significance in the Hindu religion owing to its auspiciousness. Moreover, it is the best day to perform religious rituals and is, therefore, celebrated in a number of ways in different regions of India.

On Rakhi Purnima, sisters perform their early morning prayers and tie beautiful rakhis on the wrists of their brothers to ask for their lifelong love, care, and protection. Raksha Bandhan strengthens their bonds and makes them acquainted with each other's love for each other. According to the astrologers and priests, it is believed that Rakhi ceremony must be avoided during the time of Bhadra kaal due to its inauspiciousness. The best time to perform them is during Aparhana or Pardosh durations on Rakhi Purnima.
