There is also a Raksha Bandhan story related to the epic Mahabharata. As per that story, Lord Krishna got hurt in his index finger while he was killing ShishuPal. In order to stop the blood flowing from Krishna’s finger, Draupadi tore a piece of her sari and tied it on his bleeding finger. That piece of garment was nothing short of a Raksha Sutra for Krishna. Krishna decided to protect her from that day onwards. And this is how Krishna came to Draupadi’s rescue when she was disrobed in King Dhritarashra’s court.
Another popular story is that King Bali once approached Lord Vishnu to protect his kingdom from enemies. Vishnu decided to help Bali and for that, he was all set to leave his home. But Goddess Lakshmi did not want Lord Vishnu to leave home. She reached Bali’s home in disguise of a Brahmin woman and asked for shelter. On the day of Shravan Purnima, she tied a thread on Bali’s wrist and told her why she came. Touched by this gesture of the Goddess, Bali requested Vishnu to not leave his heavenly home. Thus, Raksha Bandhan is also called ‘Baleva’ which implies the devotion of King Bali towards Lord Vishnu.
