HOLI KA DAHAN
What Is the Significance of Holika Dahan?
The occasion of Holi and Holika Dahan celebrates the victory of good over evil. Holi also marks the beginning of spring. The occasion of Holika Dahan commemorates the burning of the demoness, Holika, who was the sister of demon King- Hiranyakashyap, with the help of Lord Vishnu. On this occasion, a bonfire is created, which signifies the burning of Holika and the subsequent defeat of evil. This occasion is also known as ‘Holika’ or ‘Kamudu Pyre’ in some parts of India. Holika Dahan ceremony is an integral part of the Holi festival, and it is celebrated before Holi.
Holi is a festival that defies all religious discrimination. This grand festival is a two-day affair, and the eve of Holi is known as Holika Dahan. Holi is celebrated on Purnima or Full Moon day during the month of Phalgun as per the Hindu calendar. So, the occasion of Holika Dahan is celebrated on the previous night. As per the Gregorian calendar, the occasion corresponds to February or March.
