The Significance of Holika Dahan

Every year, Hindus celebrate Holika Dahan, a significant Hindu festival. It commemorates the story of Prahlad, a devout Lord Vishnu devotee who was saved from being burned alive by his evil aunt Holika. The festival is marked by the lighting of a bonfire, around which people gather to pray and sing devotional songs. The bonfire is regarded as a symbol of good triumphing over evil, serving as a reminder that truth and righteousness will always triumph in the end. Holika Dahan will be celebrated on March 7, 2023 this year. The Holi puja shubh muhurat begins at 6:24 p.m. and ends at 8:51 p.m.
