any janakari bharat men holika dahan ke pashchath hi agale din harsh aur ullas ka parv tatha purane dvesh-bhav adi ko bhula dene vala tyohar 'holi' manaya jata hai.

holika hiranyakashipu namak daity ki bahan aur prahlad namak vishnu ke bhakt ki bua thi. holika ko yah varadan prapt tha ki vah agni men nahin jalegi. is varadan ka labh uthane ke lie vishnu-virodhi hiranyakashipu ne use agya di ki vah prahlad ko lekar agni men pravesh kar jae, jisase prahlad ki mrityu ho jae. holika ne prahlad ko lekar agni men pravesh kiya. eeshvar kripa se prahlad to bach gaya kintu holika jalakar bhasm ho gee. holika ke ant ki khushi men hi 'holi' ka utsav manaya jata hai.[1]

hiranyakashipu ko varadan

prachin kal men atyachari rakshasaraj hiranyakashipu ne tapasya karake brahma se varadan pa liya ki snsar ka koee bhi jiv-jantu, devi-devata, rakshas ya manushy use n mar sake. n hi vah rat men mare, n din men; n prithvi par, n akash men; n ghar men, n bahar. yahan tak ki koee astr-shastr bhi use n mar pae. aisa varadan pakar vah atynt nirnkush ban baitha. hiranyakashipu ke yahan prahlad jaisa paramatma men atoot vishvas karane vala bhakt putr paida hua. prahlad bhagavan vishnu ka param bhakt tha aur us par vishnu ki kripa-drishti thi.[2]

prahlad vadh ki yojana

hiranyakashipu ne prahlad ko adesh diya ki vah usake atirikt kisi any ki stuti n kare. prahlad ke n manane par hiranyakashipu use jan se marane par utaroo ho gaya. usane prahlad ko marane ke anek upay kie, lekin vah prabhu-kripa se bachata raha. hiranyakashipu ki bahan holika ko agni se bachane ka varadan tha. usako varadan men ek aisi chadar mili huee thi, jise odhakar yadi agnisnan kiya jae to agni use jala nahin sakati thi. hiranyakashipu ne apani bahan holika ki sahayata se prahlad ko ag men jalakar marane ki yojana banaee.

holika ki mrityu

holika apane bhatije balak prahlad ko god men lekar use jalakar mar dalane ke uddeshy se chadar odhakar dhoon-dhoon kar jalati huee agni men ja baithi. prabhu-kripa se vah chadar vayu ke veg se udakar balak prahlad par ja padi aur chadar n hone par holika jal kar vahin bhasm ho gee. is prakar prahlad ko marane ke prayas men holika ki mrityu ho gee. tatpashchath hiranyakashipu ko marane ke lie bhagavan vishnu ne 'nrisinh avatar' men khnbhe se nikal kar godhooli ke samay[3] men daravaze ki chaukhat par baithakar atyachari hiranyakashyap ko mar dala. tabhi se holi ka tyohar manaya jane laga.[2]
