Significance and history of the festival

Various stories are associated with Holi, one of them being the tale of Prahlad and Hiranyakahsyap. According to the legend, there was a powerful yet despicable king Hiranyakashyap who considered himself to be God and wanted everyone around him to worship him like they worshipped God. To his annoyance, Prahlad, his son, a noble soul started worshipping Lord Vishnu instead and refused taking his father’s orders despite many threats given to him. Angry at his son’s disobedience, Hiranyakashyap pronounced multiple punishments, none of which affected the little boy. Holika, the demon king’s evil sister tricked Prahlad into sitting with him on a pyre with her. Holika wore a cloak that made her immune to injury from fire, while Prahlad had nothing to save himself with. As the fire blazed, the cloak flew from Holika and covered Prahlad instead. This way the son survived and his evil aunt burned to ashes on the spot. This is also why this festival celebrates the symbolic victory of good over evil.
