Holika Dahan 2024

The tale of Holi starts with a demon king or Asura king named Hiranyakashyap who lived several years ago, had barred everyone in his kingdom from taking the name of God, Lord Vishnu and asked his people to call himself a God.

However, his son Prahlad was the biggest devotee of Lord Vishnu which the world had never seen. Seeing this, Hiranyakashyap became very furious and tried to kill his son numerous times, but failed.

Prahlad got saved every time with the blessings of Lord Vishnu. However, after so many failed attempts Asura King orders his sister Holika, who has immunity from fire and cannot be burned, to kill Prahlad. They both sat in the fire in the woods, but because of a miracle Prahlad again beat death and Holika got killed while burning in the fire, which she had immunity from. Since this incident, Holika Dahan was started in the name of Lord Vishnu’s biggest devotee Prahlad.
