Hindu Mythology of HOLI:-
Holi has its roots in Hindu mythology. Some believe Holi was originally a fertility festival meant to celebrate the arrival of spring. Others believe that it was a way to commemorate the victory of good over evil. Whatever its origins, Holi is now a cherished tradition for Hindus all over the world.
Holi, the festival of colours, marks the beginning of spring and the end of winter. The festival signifies the triumph of good over evil. The colour and vibrancy of the festival represent the different aspects of life. This year Holi 2023, the festival of colours falls on March 8, 2023. So start planning your celebration now, and stock up on colourful powders and water guns!
In modern times, the festival of Holi 2023 has taken on a new significance. It is now a time to come together and celebrate our diversity. The festival reminds us that we are all different, but we are all united by our humanity. It is a time to come together, celebrate our commonalities, and build bridges of understanding and respect.
History behind Holi:
The legend of Hiranyakashipu and Holika is associated with the festival of Holi in many places. Hiranyakashipu, a demon king in ancient India, enlisted the help of his sister Holika to kill his son Prahlada, a devoted worshiper of Lord Vishnu. In an attempt to burn Prahlada, Holika sat with him on a pyre while wearing a cloak that was supposed to protect her from the fire. However, the cloak protected Prahlada instead, and Holika burned to death. Later that night, Lord Vishnu succeeded in killing Hiranyakashipu, and the episode was heralded as a triumph of good over evil. The night before Holi, people in many parts of India light a large fire to celebrate the occasion.
