Let us discuss why Holika Dahan is celebrated. It all started after King Hiranyakashyap started considering himself as God out of his ego long. However, his own son Prahlad was an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. Even after much persuasion by the father, when his son did not stop worshiping Lord Vishnu, Hiranyakashyap punished his son in various ways, yet Prahlad's faith and devotion did not diminish. He then ordered him to be burnt in the fire. For this the king asked his sister Holika to sit with Prahlad in the burning fire, as Holika had a boon that she would not burn in the fire. This order was followed and Holika sat in the fire with Prahlad. But astonishingly, Holika got burnt, and Prahlad escaped from Holika while meditating about Narayan. Since then this Holika festival started being celebrated. If you are looking for Holika Dahan 2022 or Choti Holi greetings messages then you are at the right place.
