Holi is a very popular and joyous festival in India. People play Holi with Chandan and Gulal. This festival is celebrated every year in the beginning of March. People believe that the bright colors of Holi are indicative of energy, vibrancy and joy. Holika Dahan is done in large quantities on the eve of Holi and people worship Agni.

Story of Holika Dahan Holika Dahan Ki Kahani in Hindi
According to a legend associated with Prahlada, the festival of Holi started since then. Prahlada was a child dedicated to God, but his father did not believe in God. He was a very proud and arrogant king. So the story proceeds in such a way that Prahlada's father was an atheist king and his son used to chant the name of God all the time. Due to this, he wanted to teach his son a lesson. He made all efforts to convince his son, but there was no change in Prahlada. When he could not replace Prahlada, they thought of killing him. So he enlisted the help of one of his sisters. His sister had the blessing that if she takes anyone in her lap and enters the fire, then she herself will have nothing but the person sitting on her lap will be consumed. The king's sister's name was Holika. Holika sat on her lap to burn Prahlada, but in the place of Prahlada she burnt herself and, chanting "Hari एवं" and being devoted to God, Prahlada was protected from fire and came out safely. .

In some villages people pass through coals and they have nothing, there is no blister / blisters on their feet! There is a lot of power in faith. Faith contributes to life. Holika combustion has an effect on the coming monsoon.

Holika is an indicator of the burden of the past which wanted to burn Prahlada's inferiority. But Prahlada, deeply associated with Narayan devotion, destroyed all the old rites and then with new colors, anandas emerged. Life becomes a celebration. Leaving the past we move towards a new beginning. Our emotions burn us like fire, but when the fountain of colors burst, then there is attraction in our life. In ignorance, emotions are like a burden, while in knowledge the same emotions fill color in life. All emotions are related to one color like red color with anger, greenish color, yellow with pulsing or happiness, pink with love, blue color with greatness, white peace and saffron with satisfaction / sacrifice and purple knowledge. joined. Know the essence of the festival and enjoy Holi in knowledge.

Why is Holi celebrated and what does it teach.
Life should be full of colors! Each color is designed for different viewing and enjoyment. If all the colors are mixed together then they all look black. All colors of red, yellow, green etc. should be different, but at the same time we should also enjoy them together. Similarly, the roles played by a person in life should be peaceful and separate within them. For example, if someone starts playing his "father" role in the office too, God is the master. But sometimes leaders in our country think first by becoming father and then by becoming leader.

Whatever situation we are in, we should give our contribution 100 percent and then our life will be full of colors! This concept has been called "Varnashrama" in ancient India. It means - every person - whether it is a doctor, teacher, father or anything else, is expected to play that role with full enthusiasm. Merging businesses has the opposite effect on productivity. If a doctor wants to do business, then he should do a separate business and not make medicine his business, instead of giving priority to his doctor's profession. Keeping these different characters of the mind separate and separate is the secret of a happy life and this is what Holi teaches us.

All the colors originate in white color but when all these colors are mixed together they turn into black color. Different colors and roles are born when our mind is bright and consciousness pure, calm, happy and meditative. We actually get the power to play all our roles. We must dive into our consciousness again and again. If we only look outside and play with the surrounding colors, we will be forced to find darkness all around us. To play all our roles with full devotion and sincerity, we have to take a deep rest between the roles. Desires are the biggest factor inhibiting deep relaxation. Desires are a sign of stress. Even small / trivial desire gives great stress. Big goals often give less worries! Sometimes desires also torture the mind.

The only way is to take care of desires and dedicate them. Being attentive to desires or deeds or meditating is called "Kamakshi". Reflexion reduces the grip of desires, and surrenders easily, and then the nectar stream explodes within. The goddess "Kamakshi" holds the cane in one hand and a flower in the other. Sugarcane is very hard and has to be squeezed to get its sweetness. While the flower is soft and it is very easy to extract the juice from it. Actually the same thing happens in life. Life is a mixture of these two!

The killing of Hiranyakashipu by Lord Narsingh
Many stories are associated with the festival of Holi. The most famous of these is the story of Prahlada. It is believed that in ancient times there was a very powerful asura named Hiranyakashipu. In the strength of his strength, he started believing himself to be God. He banned the name of God in his kingdom. Prahlad, the son of Hiranyakashipu, was a god devotee. Enraged by Prahlada's devotion to God, Hiranyakashipu gave him many harsh punishments, but he did not leave the path of devotion to God. Hiranyakashipu's sister Holika had the boon that she could not be consumed in the fire. Hiranyakashipu ordered Holika to sit in the fire with Prahlad on his lap. Holika got burnt while sitting in the fire, but Prahlad survived. Holi is lit on this day in memory of the devotee Prahlada. [11] Symbolically it is also believed that Prahlada means joy. The Holika (burning wood) symbol of hatred and oppression burns and Prahlad (bliss), a symbol of love and joy, remains intact.

Apart from the legend of Prahlada, this festival is also associated with the rebirth of the demonic Dhoondi, Radha Krishna's Ras and Kamadeva. [13] Some believe that by wearing colors, dancing and singing in Holi, people disguise the ganas of Shiva. And make the scene of Shiva's procession.

The grain is called Hola, from which it got its name Holikotsav. According to Indian astrology, New Year is also considered to be the beginning of Chaitra Shudi Pratipada. It is only after this festival that the month of Chaitra begins. Hence, this festival is also a symbol of the beginning of the New Year and the transition of peace.

There is also a tradition of burning Bharbholi  in Holika at many places. Bharbholi are such cow dung cakes with holes in the middle. Garland is made by putting a rope of mustache in this hole. A garland has seven bharabholis. Holi is thrown around the head of the brothers seven times before throwing fire in Holi. This garland is burnt with Holika at the time of Holika Dahan at night. This means that along with Holi, the evil eye on the brothers is also burnt.  This Holi, made of wood and stools, duly starts worshiping from noon. Homemade dishes are offered here.

Deepawali (diwali)

Deepawali is the biggest festival celebrated by Hindus in India. Due to the special festival of lamps, it was named Deepawali or Diwali. Deepawali means the line of the lamp. Thus this festival decorated with rows of lamps is called Deepawali. This mahaparva, celebrated on the new moon of Kartik month, illuminates the dark night with the light of innumerable lamps.

Diwali is an all social festival

On hearing the name of Diwali, we get the image of sweets, Lakshmi Puja, new things and fireworks, this is the thing that is most important about Diwali. Diwali is one of the most prominent festivals of Hindu religion, if seen, this festival serves to enhance social unity.

However, there is another aspect of the Diwali festival, which we are promoting year after year for our enjoyment. That is the other aspect. Fireworks and bursting of firecrackers is an act which has nothing to do with the Diwali festival directly, nor does it have any historical and mythological description in the Diwali festival, along with this fireworks that happens on Diwali Due to this, day-to-day environmental pollution is increasing.

Diwali festival of happiness and happiness prosperity

The festival of Diwali has a different significance of its own, which is why it is much more dear to us than other festivals. According to the Hindu calendar, the festival of Diwali falls in the month of Kartik, which is the month of October or November according to the Gregorian calendar. In Hinduism, the festival of Diwali is considered a festival of happiness and prosperity.

This is the reason that many weeks before Diwali, people start to clean their houses and offices because it is believed that the houses that are clean are kept in Lakshmi on the day of Diwali and their blessings By providing, there is an increase in happiness and prosperity.

Let's celebrate Diwali this time in a slightly different way

Although the way of celebrating the festival of Diwali and worship is the same everywhere, yet there are other functions by which we can make this special festival of Diwali not only for ourselves but also for others. Can make it special and make the true meaning of Diwali truly meaningful.

1. By buying from retail and small sellers alike

Nowadays there is a trend among people to buy items from branded and reputed places, there is nothing wrong in following it in some things, but adopting it in everything will be like ruining the livelihood of some poor and hardworking people because our Likewise, they also wait for this festival throughout the year. So now next time you go shopping for Diwali, keep this in mind.

2.Using more lamps instead of electric frills

In today's time, we need to use lamps more and more in electronic place on Diwali. It is not that we should stop the use of electronic items completely, but we should use them in the right quantity by aligning them with traditional items. It not only works to boost the economy of the country by making the small traders and potters of our country economically strong, but also maintains the traditional form of Diwali.

3. By distributing gifts and essential items to the poor

Many of us spend huge amounts of money in decorating, fireworks and celebrating the festival of Diwali. If we wish, we can bring happiness to their faces by cutting some of these things or by spending more than we have, by distributing blankets, sweets and gifts to some poor and needy people and also make this festival for ourselves as well as for ourselves. You can get the real pleasure of the festival of Diwali, making it even more special.

4. celebrating green Diwali

We all know that on Diwali, a lot of pollution arises due to firecrackers and heavy fireworks. Many times people start bursting firecrackers several weeks before Diwali, due to which the amount of pollution in the environment starts increasing and reaches its peak on Diwali. The biggest impact is seen in metros like Delhi, Mumbai, where the pollution level increases so much after the festival of Diwali that schools and offices have to be closed for a few days.

We have to understand that the meaning of the festival of Diwali is lamp and light rather than bursting of firecrackers. There is no historical or mythological description of firecrackers and fireworks in the festival of Diwali, it was added to the festival of Diwali much later by people for their entertainment. So we all resolve to celebrate green Diwali by not using firecrackers. And it will be the biggest gift we can give to nature on Diwali.

5. Bringing awareness about the ban on firecrackers

Due to pollution, the Supreme Court has also set a deadline for the use of firecrackers in some states or it has been banned completely, but many people also give religious color to this decision of the Supreme Court. They go and start asking many questions about what benefit will be given from the ban on firecrackers in a single day, or why all the restrictions are imposed only on special festivals.

We need to convince such people that only small decisions can lead to big changesTan is obtained. Only by bringing awareness to the people, we can make the ban of firecrackers successful and make our significant contribution in pollution free environment.

The conclusion

If we adopt these things on Diwali, then we can make this festival even more enchanting and prosperous. We have to understand that the festival of Diwali or Deepawali means deep, love and happiness and not the pollution of firecrackers and waste, this is the reason why this small work done by us on the festival of Diwali Can bring big changes.

There are different reasons or stories behind the practice of lighting the lamp. According to the Ram devotees in Hindu beliefs, Kartik returned to Ayodhya on Amavasya by cutting the exile of Lord Sri Ramchandraji fourteen years and killing Ravanadi, a symbol of Asuri Vrittis.

Then the Ayodhya dwellers celebrated the festival by lighting lamps on the ascension of Rama. That is why Deepawali is one of the major festivals of Hindus. The people of Krishna Bhaktidhara believe that on this day Lord Krishna killed the tyrannical King Narakasura. Due to the slaughter of this dastardly monster, immense joy spread in the public and people filled with happiness lit lamps of ghee. According to a legend, Vishnu killed Hiranyakashipu in the form of Narasimha and on this day Lakshmi and Dhanvantari appeared after Samudramanthan.
