The Spiritual Thoughts Behind Holi Celebration
In 2022, the Holi is on March 18, and everyone celebrates it from March 17. The celebration lasts for two days. On the first day, people do a bonfire and revolve around it to praise goodness over evil. The born fire obliges us to pray for the kindness of Bhagwan Vishnu and end the immoral thoughts with the burning of Holika. Thus, the bonfire is also known as Holika Dahan. Then everyone enjoys the festival of colours with lots of Gulal and water. Individuals celebrate the festival with the spiritual thought of playing Lord Krishana with Radha Ji and their Gopis.
