Myths and legends of Rakhi

There are various myths and legends associated with Rakhi. According to one such concept, Rakhi is meant to be the worship of the sea-god Varuna. Hence, offerings of coconut to Varuna are seen during this time on the western part of India. The festival of Rakhi is hence known as Nariyal Poornima. It is also known as Rakhi poornima in other parts of India as it is celebrated on the day of the full moon in the Sravan month in the Hindu calender. There is also another myth regarding this beautiful festival. According to another popular folklore, Rakhi and its rituals were observed by Yamuna for her brother Yama.
