There are many stories related to celebrating Holi.
The most valid and famous story in these stories is related to the devotee Prahlad.
You must be familiar with this story. Nevertheless, for the information of all of you, we are writing this religious story in a nutshell here.
In ancient times, a mighty demon named Hiranyakashipu ruled.
Hiranyakashipu considered himself a god. He considered himself the best in this world. There was a lot of hatred in his mind towards Lord Shri Vishnu.
Hiranyakashipu’s son’s name was Prahlad. Prahlad was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu.
Prahlad was explained in many ways not to worship Lord Vishnu. Worship your father Hiranyakashipu.
But Prahlad’s mind was always engaged in the devotion of Shri Vishnu. He was punished in various ways. So that he gives up the devotion of Shri Vishnu. But Prahlad remained engaged in the devotion of Lord Shri Vishnu.
Hiranyakashipu had a sister named Holika. He had a boon that fire could not burn him.
According to Hiranyakashipu’s order, Holika sat on the fire with Prahlad in her lap.
But nothing happened to Prahlad and Holika was burnt to ashes.
Every year we all celebrate Holika Dahan in the memory of that incident. And celebrate Holi in the joy of survival due to Prahlad’s devotion to Vishnu.
In the end, Lord Vishnu took the form of Narasimha and killed Hiranyakashipu.
