What is the story of Holi?

According to the myth, Holika, a Demoness is a character associated with the festival of Holi. She was the sister of the demon king Hiranyakashipu.

Hiranyakashipu had a son named Prahlad, who was a devoted follower of the god Vishnu. This devotion angered Hiranyakashipu, who wanted to punish his son for worshipping Vishnu instead of him.

Holika believed to be immune to fire, was asked by Hiranyakashipu to sit on a pyre with Prahlad in her lap.

However, due to her evil intentions, her immunity did not work, and she was burned to ashes while Prahlad emerged unharmed due to his devotion to Vishnu.

The ritual of Holika Dahan, where bonfires are lit to symbolize the burning of Holika, signifies the destruction of evil and the celebration of the victory of good.
