HOLI - THE COLOURFUL FESTIVAL


 
Business,Marketing,Organizing
Holi is the festival of happiness and colors. Holi is marked by the end of wintertime and the start of spring. It is one of those times when the social barriers lose their strength and fun flows in the air. Holi has a deep connection with Hindu way of living. There are a number of legends that are linked with this Indian festival. It is also known as Phagwah, Dolajatra, Dol Jatra or Basantotsav.

‘Holi' comes from the word ‘hola' another word for sacrifice. Thus, it is a festival that reminds us that we must live our lives in a spirit of service and sacrifice. Holi is a symbol of victory of our higher aspirations over our lower, baser desires. It represents the burning of our petty, material desires at the altar of our goals of self-development.

The festival stands for the victory of good over evil, a theme that runs through every Indian festival. This is because it is impossible for those who live their lives by truth to ever be overcome by the corrupt.

A spectacular aspect of Holi is its effervescent joy and fun. It stresses that spirituality is also about enjoying life to its fullest.

Spiritual life is about more than giving up our possessions, it is also about discovering higher, permanent joys. It is a path filled with fortuitous discovery and moments of complete joy reflected in the life of Lord Krishna.

Consequently, the spirituality that ancient Vedanta speaks of isn't meant only for sages in the Himalayas. It is a kind of philosophy that is meant for active people.

It is a vibrant, living knowledge that enables one to make life a celebration. So, on Holi, we must remember to bring the colour into our lives by living the principles of Vedanta.

As a festival of colours, Holi is celebrated in the month of Phalgun (February-March) and is also called Phagwah. It is the full moon day in Phalgun that ushers in the season of spring in India. It is also a celebration of the harvest season.

The ancient Puranas tell the story of a woman called Holika whose brother was Hiranyakashipu a demon king. The egoistic king desired that everybody in his kingdom worshipped only him.

However, he was furious to learn that his son Prahalada worshipped only Vishnu. That’s when he decided to kill Prahlada and planned to carry out this deed with Holika. She had once been granted a boon that gave her the power to remain unaffected by fire.

So, to lure Prahlada into a fire, Holika enticed him to sit on her lap where she pretended to play with him. Meanwhile, Hiranyakashipu ordered his men to set the place where they sat on fire. That’s when Holika's boon failed her.

Because hers was a sinister venture to kill the Lord Vishnu’s devotee, it was Holika who was burned to ashes while Prahlada came out unscathed.

Another reason why Holi is significant is its association with Raasleela, the Divine Dance that Lord Krishna performed for the gopis , his devotees in Vrindavan on this day.
