  • The Story of Holi (Holi from Holika)
  • By Johanna Salazar
  •         Hiranyakashyap got a blessing from Lord Vishnu that he would not be killed by man or animal, at day or night, inside or outside, above or on the ground.
  • Hiranyakashyap said that only he should be worshipped, not God. His own son, Prahlad continued to worship Lord Vishnu. This made his father angry. 
  • Hiranyakashyap asked his sister, Holika, to put Prahlad on her lap, while they both sat in a fire.
  • Holika made Prahlad sit on her lap. She was protected by a shawl that kept her from being burnt. The shawl flew from her to Prahlad. So, Holika burned, while Prahlad was safe.
  • Lord Vishnu appeared as half-man, half-lion and killed Hiranyakashyap at night, on his porch steps.
