God was supposed to go to Lakshmi again after Vamnavatar, but God got trapped by giving this promise and he started living in the service of Bali in the abyss. On the other hand, Mata Lakshmi got worried about this. In such a situation, Naradji told Laxmiji a solution. Then Lakshmiji made Rakhi Dam her brother to King Bali and brought her husband with her. That day was the full moon date of Shravan month. Since then, this festival of Raksha Bandhan is in vogue.
