What does Holi Really mean?

We indulge in festivities, color playing, gujiya eating in and around holi, but do we know what it really means? Spiritually, it is said that the paraphernalia for holi can be started after Maha Shivratri. Holi is said to bring out the negativity, shortcoming and weaknesses and pledge to not repeating the mistakes so encountered and recognized. The sins, weaknesses and negativity are all cluttered together and sacrificed to fire, hence confirming the pledge of non repetition.

What the legends say?

The most popular legend surrounding Holi is the inspiring story of the faith laden believer, Prahlad. While Prahlad’s father, Hiranya Kashyap, was a non believer and had extreme hatred for his son’s faith. The evil father, along with his sister, Holika tried to hamper Prahlad’s faith through evil tactics. By virtue of his immense faith, Prahlad shined through the test of faith and was protected by the almighty while his aunt, Holika flamed into the air.

There is another popular legend related to Holi. According to the Puranas, Lord Shiva, opening his third eye out of furiousness, incinerated the God of Desire, Kaamdev. Hence, it is also a popular culture in many parts of India where people sacrifice something that is very close to their heart. A period known as Holashtak prevails through eight days before the full moon. No holy rituals, tasks and projects are undertaken during holashtak.
