Holi is one of the most anticipated Indian festivals, and it’s celebrated as the winter season recedes and spring begins in the sub-continent. Primarily, Holi is a festival of colours when children and adults smear gulal on each other and seek the blessings of their elders. It’s a two-day festival.

A day before playing with colours and relishing delicious food, people mark Holika Dahan. On this day, people light the symbolic bonfire, which is said to kill all evil around them.

Tithi and Muhurta

According to Drikpanchang, Purnima Tithi starts at 1:29 PM on March 17 and ends at 12:47 PM on March 18.

Holika Dahan Muhurta is between 9:06 PM and 10:16 PM on March 17.

Holika Dahan Date and Timings

Holika Dahan 2022 Date: 17th March

Holika Dahan 2022 Time: 09:06 PM to 10:16 PM

Holika Dahan 2022 Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Bhadra Punchha: 09:06 PM to 10:16 PM

Bhadra Mukha: 10:16 PM to 12:13 AM, Mar 18

What to avoid on Choti Holi/ Holika Dahan

One should avoid Bhadra Mukha and Holika Dahan should be done in Bhadra Mukha without any condition. There is a reason behind it, if it is not done in a proper mahurat, it will bring bad luck for the whole year not only for individuals but for whole city and country. On rare occasions when neither Pradosh nor Bhadra Punchha is available then one should do Holika Dahan after Pradosh.

Holika Dahan History and Significance

Holika Dahan is celebrated on the day of Choti Holi. The history of the day is associated with the legend of Hiranyakashipu and his son Prahalad. Hiranyakashipu was one of the biggest enemies of Lord Vishnu but his son would worship Lord Vishnu religiously.

The fire burning on the eve of Holika Dahan symbolizes the burning of Holika. The story as a whole is a testament to the power of devotion over the evil represented by King Hiranyakashyapu, as Prahlad never lost his faith.

Holi is also a celebration of the divine love between Lord Krishna and Radha. So, an elaborate Holi is played in Mathura and Vrindavan.
