The Eternal Couple - Radha and Krishna
Holi is a celebration of love. According to Hindu legend, it originates when lord Krishna who was unhappy with the differences in his complexion and of Radha’s, and asks Radha to color his face with any color that she desires. Radha complies and eventually, they become a couple ever since. This playful coloring of face and body is celebrated today as the festival of Holi.
Each color used during this festival has a special meaning. For instance, the color red symbolizes love and fertility. Green represents a new beginning.
When is Holi Celebrated?
Being the festival of colors, Holi is celebrated to welcome the arrival of spring and, to end winter. Holi every year lasts for a night and a day.
It starts on the full moon day of the Vikram Samvat Calendar or the historical Hindu calendar month of Phalguna. Phalguna is the 11th month of the Hindu calendar and Holi usually falls in the month of March of the Gregorian calendar.
Holi – The triumph of Good over Evil
Holi is also celebrated as a triumph of good over evil. According to Hindu Legend, Lord Vishnu assassinated the younger brother of the demon lord, Hiranyakshipu. Hiranyakshipu tries to rule the heaven, the earth, and the underworld by defeating Lord Vishnu and killing his own son Prahalad by burning him on a pyre with the help of Holika, Hiranyakashipu’s sister. Holika who was immune to fire was actually burned to ashes while Prahalad came out unscathed. Even today people perform religious rituals in front of a bonfire and pray so that their internal evil is destroyed just like Holika was destroyed.
