Transcript of HOLI 2014

Traditionally, women wore sarees for Holi.

How to Prepare...
Religious/Mythological Significance-
1. The story of Holika that was previously told.
2. Lord Krishna's prank of putting color on his friend, Goddess Radha which is now a tradition of friendship.
1. Birthday of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (A.D. 1486-1533).




3. Hiranyakashyap (a demon) wanted everybody in his kingdom to worship only him but to his great disappointment, his son, Prahlad became an ardent devotee of Lord Naarayana.
Hiaranyakashyap commanded his sister, Holika to enter a blazing fire with Prahlad in her lap.

Holika had this magical boon that she thought would save her from being burned in the fire; but it was ineffective.
And so Prahlad was saved due to his devotion to God.
2. Krishna applying color on Radha
