Indian culture is full of colours and beliefs. This can be very well understood from the ritual of tying sacred threads. There are different types of sacred threads such as mauli, Janeyu, Raksha Sutra and many more. At Vedic Vaani, you will find all types of sacred threads that are used for various purposes and rituals. Out of these, Mauli or Kalawa is a combination red thread with a yellow one. The kalawa is often tied before the beginning of any rituals. This thread can also be used as Raksha sutra or the protecting thread. In some regions in India, the kalawa is also used as Rakhi which is tied by sister to her brother.
