Holi story


Many stories are associated with the festival of Holi. The most famous of these is the story of Prahlad. It is believed that in ancient times, Hiranyakhipipu was an extremely powerful force. In his pride he considered himself to be God. He had restricted the name of God in his kingdom. Prahlaad, son of Hiranyakhipu, was a god worshiper. Hearing against Prahlad's godly devotion, Hiranyakashipu gave him many harsh punishments, but he did not leave the path of devotion to God. Hiranyakhipu's sister Holika had a boon that she could not be consumed in the fire. Hiranyakhipipu ordered Holika Prahlad to sit in the fire and take it in the fire. The hulika was burnt when she was sitting in the fire, but Prahlad survived. Holi is celebrated on this day in memory of god devotee Prahlad. In symbolism, it is also believed that Prahlaad means happiness. Hoolika (burning wood) symbolizes hostility and persecution, and love (joy) is a symbol of love and glee.

In addition to the story of Prahlad, this festival is also associated with the monstrous misdi, Radha Krishna's renaissance and the rebirth of Cupid. Some people believe that by wearing colors in the Holi, people wear the Shiva Ganesha and make a scene of Shiva's procession. Some people also believe that Lord Krishna killed the demon named Pootna on this day. Gopis and Guwalas played the color of Rasilila in this Khushi.
