Holi

Festivals and Celebrations

Holashtak

The period of eight days before the Holi festival is called Holashtak. This starts on Shukla Paksha Ashtami (8th day) of Phalguna month and ends with Holika Dahan Celebrations. It consists of two words - Holi & Ashtak, which means eight days of Holi. The holashtak period is considered very inauspicious in Hinduism. So auspicious ceremonies like marriages, Griha Pravesh, child naming, or any other rituals are avoided during this period.

Holika Dahan

The history of Holika Dahan goes back in time from Satya Yuga of Hindu Mythology, the fourth incarnation of Shri Narayana in form of Narasimha. References found in Bhagavat Purana, a king named Hiranyakashipu who, like many demons and Asuras, had the intense desire to be immortal. To fulfill this desire, he performed the required Tapas or penances until he was granted a boon by Brahma. This achievement made him arrogant. Hiranyakashyapu decreed that only he be worshiped as a God. Out of arrogance, he started punishing and killing all who defied him. His son, Prahlad, disagreed with his father, and refused to worship his father as a god, continuing instead to worship Vishnu (Shri Narayana).

Hiranyakashipu was very angry with this act of Prahlad and made various attempts to kill Prahlad. In such an instance in Prahlad's life, King Hiranyakashyapu called upon his sister Holika for help. Holika had a special cloak that protected her from being harmed by fire. Hiranyakashyapu asked her to sit on a bonfire with Prahlad, by tricking the boy to sit on her lap and she herself took her seat in flames. The legend has it that Holika had to pay the price of her evil desire by her life. Holika was unaware that the boon worked only when she entered a fire alone. Prahlad, who kept chanting the name of Vishnu all this while, came out unscathed as Vishnu blessed him for his extreme devotion.

From then on the eve of Holi, Holika Dahan takes place. Effigy of Holika made out of cow dung is placed in the wood and burnt. Symbolize that Holika tried to kill Hiranyakashyap's son Prahlad, an ardent devotee of Lord Narayana. The victory of good over evil and also the triumph of a true devotee.

Rang Panchami

Rang Panchami is commemorated after 5 days of Holi celebration which is a Hindu festivity of fun and colors. It is considered as one of the important religious festivals in Indian states- Maharashtra, Bihar, Uttar-Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and other parts of Northern India. In accordance with the Hindu calendar, this festival would be observed on the Panchami (fifth day) of the Krishna Paksha during the month of Phalguna.

Lathmar Holi

Lathmar Holi takes place around a week before the main day of Holi. The following day, the celebrations move to Nandgaon village. It's worth getting to Barsana a couple of days in advance of Lathmar Holi so that you can also experience Laddoo Holi festivities there. Sweets are thrown around and spiritual songs (Bhajan) related to Radha and Krishna are sung.

Phoolon Wali Holi

Bankey Bihari Temple is the best vicinity to enjoy the real glee of Holi with the color of Flowers everywhere. When the city indulges itself in the preparation of Holi with Gulals, colored- water balloons, and splendid Pichkari, the very famous Bankey Bihari Mandir commemorates an absolute eye-catching Phoolon ki Holi or Holi with flowers everywhere. Bankey- Bihari- the enchanting manifestation of Lord Krishna along with his lovable partner-Radha are adorned beautifully with winsome flowers and freshly bloomed garlands for the jollifications of Phoolon Ki Holi. Phoolon Ki Holi is pre-dominantly observed on Ekadashi which falls a few days prior to the main Holi where local priests and peeps use only flowers and petals to play with each other.
