Holi Purnima Vrat Katha

On Purnima Tithi the Moon appears full in all its phases in the sky. In Hinduism, every full moon has its own significance and slight differences can be seen in the worship of each full moon. But its importance always remains present in some form. On this date, performing puja, charity, bathing in holy rivers and religious places is said to be extremely auspicious. It also gives completeness to the closeness of our relationship with life and nature. Taking bath and donating at the pilgrimage sites of Ganga and Yamuna rivers on the day of Purnima Tithi is considered salvation and virtuous.

Lord Shri Vishnu is worshiped on this day. The story of Holi Purnima also reflects the festival of Holi. This story deals with the demons Harinyakashyapu and Prahlad. According to this story, Harinyakashyapu wanted to give death penalty to his son Prahlad, because his son was a devotee of Shri Vishnu and Harinyakashyapu could not tolerate this. He considered Shri Vishnu as his enemy and he used to inflict pain and torture on anyone who worshiped Shri Vishnu. In such a situation, when his son Prahlad worships Shri Vishnu, he starts hating his son and gives him all kinds of problems. But due to the grace of Shri Vishnu, Prahlad does not face any trouble.

For this reason, Harinyakashyapu asked his sister Holika to avail the boon given by Brahma. Holika had the boon that she could not burn in fire and its fire could not harm her. In such a situation, the demon Holika sits in the fire to burn Prahlad. But by the grace of Shri Hari, Prahlad remains safe and Holika gets burnt.

Therefore, since ancient times, Holika is burnt and worshiped on the day of Holi Purnima. On the day of Holi Purnima, Holika is made from wood and ashes. Holika Dahan is done in auspicious time and puja is performed.
