Holika Dahan Story

Let us know the story of the devotee Prahlada.

Once the Asura Raj Hiranyakashipu was engaged in penance to achieve victory. Seeing the opportunity, the gods captured his kingdom. 

Prahlad story

Brahmarshi Narada brought his pregnant wife to his ashram. They told him about Dharma and Vishnu glory every day. This son Prahlada, who was born in the womb, also received this knowledge. Later, Asuraraj conquered the three worlds with the blessing of Brahma. Then the queen came to him. After that Prahlada was born.

From childhood, Prahlada started Vishnu-bhakti. Enraged by this, Hiranyakashipu called his guru and said that he should do something so that it ceases to recite the name of Vishnu. The Guru tried a lot but he was unsuccessful. Then Asuraraj ordered the murder of his son Prahlada.

He was poisoned, hit with a sword, released in front of the poison, wanted to be crushed under the feet of elephants, Prahlada was thrown down from the mountain, but Prahlada's hair was not deterred by the grace of Lord Vishnu. Then Hiranyakashipu called his sister Holika and said that you take Prahlada and sit in the fire, so that he can be burned.


Holika had a boon that her fire would never harm her unless she thought of hurting a virtuous human. Having obeyed her brother, Holika took her nephew Prahlada to the dock and sat in the fire.

In an attempt to harm him, Holika herself was burnt to death and Prahlada came out of the fire laughing.

While doing Holika Dahan, we should also write the bad experiences and failures of the past years on a paper and dedicate it to Agni. Put the negative emotions going on in your mind in Holika Dahan. Only then will you move ahead with positive thinking and become eligible for God's grace like Prahlada.
