Catholic Church media institute celebrates festival of siblings with Brahma Kumaris

The Indian Catholic bishops’ media institute in New Delhi, India, has celebrated “Rakshabandhan” (bond of protection), the festival of siblings with a group of Brahma Kumaris.

Expressing his gratitude and admiration for the initiative, Father Rodrigues said, “Raksha Bandhan is a beautiful reminder of the ties that bind us as a community. It’s heartening to witness the Brahma Kumaris joining us in celebrating this festival of love and protection. Such interactions foster mutual understanding and appreciation, which are essential in our diverse society.”

Rakshabandhan is a popular Hindu rite or ceremony where sisters of all ages tie a talisman or amulet called the rakhi around the wrists of their brothers.

The rakhi is also tied by women and girls to boys and men who are not blood relatives, cutting across lines of class and religion, accepting them as brothers and to foster social harmony and cohesion.

The above event is an example wherein the ceremonies and festivals in a religion can be used to initiate inter-faith harmony and brotherhood, mutual understanding and social well-being.
