Happy Raksha Bandhan!

"Now, brother sister relationship - the relationship of Vishnumaya is, that Vishnumaya is the one who is the Sister, Sister of Shri Krishna. She is the one who announced the Coming of Shri Krishna. She is the one who sacrificed her life to save Shri Krishna's life. Vishnumaya is the one which surrounds Shri Krishna; and She was born as Draupadi who, you know, was later humiliated by Duryodhana and it was Shri Krishna who came and helped her. So it's a very sweet relationship of purity, of help. A very delicate relationship is to be maintained of a brother and a sister. And that is a special relationship. Today, those who want to tie the Rakhis to a sister should tie today before me, it will be a good idea. It is a greater relationship than any other relationship. Because here somebody is your 'own' sister, is alright. But if she is not your own sister you should know that you all are born of 'One' Mother. "
