story of holi

Long time ago, there was a king Hiranya Kashyap and his sister Holika. Hiranya Kashyap wanted people to understand him as God and worship him. A few days later, a child was born in the house of “Hiranya Kashyap”, who was named Prahlad.

Who used to worship Lord Vishnu since childhood. Hiranya Kashyap became very worried about Prahlad considering Vishnu as God. He told his son many times that Vishnu is not God, but the real God is your own father. But Prahlad did not listen to his father and used to chant Shrihari since childhood.

When Prahlad did not give up his insistence after persuading him a million times, “Hiranya Kashyap” made many attempts to kill Prahlad, but all failed. One day Hiranya Kashyap planned to kill him by burning him with fire. And remembered her sister Holika and at the behest of “Hirany Kashyap”, Holika took Prahlad in her lap and sat in the fire.

Holika had got this boon from God that fire could not do anything for her and Holika was given a chunari gift from Lord Shiva. Because of which Agni could not do anything to Holika. But on the approval of God, the same chunri fell on Prahlad and Holika was burnt to ashes in this fire. From this story the Holi festival was born. On the day of Holi there was victory of good and defeat of evil.
