Raksha Bandhan Story of Krishna and Draupadi
Draupati had tied Rakhi to Lord Krishna, a story of Rakhi is also famous from the Mahabharata period. Lord Krishna had told Yudhishthira about the defense thread that celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan with your army, this will protect the Pandavas and their army.
Shri Krishna had also said that there is amazing power in the protection thread. Krishna’s index finger was hurt while killing Shishupala, so Draupadi tore her sari and tied it on his finger to stop the bleeding. This was also the full moon day of Shravan month. God had repaid this debt by saving his shame at the time of chirharan. From that time the process of tying Rakhi started.
