  • The Story of Holi
  • The Story of Holi
  •   Holi gets its name from Holika, demon king Hiranyakshyapś sister. Hiranyakshyap got a boon from lord vishnu that he would not be killed by man or animal, at day or night, inside and outside, above or on the ground.
  • So Hiranyakshyap said that only he should be worshiped, not god. His own son, Prahlad continued to worship Lord Vishnu. This made his father angry. He asked Prahlad to jump from a mountain, but he remained unhurt.
  • Hiranyakshyap tried so many times to try and kill prahlad but all of thse attempts still never worked. He tried to posion trample and make him jump down a well to try and kill him but all of those ideas never worked.
  • Finally, Holika made prahlad sit on a pyre with her. She was protected by a shawl that kept her from being burnt. The shawl flew from her to prahlad. So, Holika burned, Prahlad was safe.
  • Lord vishnu appeared as half-man, half-lion and killed Hiranyakshyap at dusk, on his porch steps.A Holika bonfire is lit every year to remind us of the victory or good over evil. Holi is celebrated on the day after the bonfire.
