This is the mantra chanted throughout the ceremony: Surajshakhanchhodian, MoolichhodiabeejBehen ne rakhibandhi / Bhaituchir jug jee", Which means: "The sun radiates its sunlight, the radish spreads its seeds, I tie the rakhi to you O brother and wish that may you live long. "Once the rakhi has been tied onto the brother, the sister then chants: "YenabaddhoBaleeraajaadaanavendromahaabalahtenatwaamanubadhnaamirakshemaachalamaachala" This means," I tie you the rakhi that was tied to king Bali, the king of Demons, O Rakhi I pray that you never falter in protecting your devotee.
