- Avoid negativity during the days of Holashtak and chant the mantras of God
Sunday, March 21 is the Ashtami date of Phalgun Shukla Paksha. Holashtak is starting from this day, which will remain till Holika Dahan on full moon day. Auspicious things are not done in these days. After Holika Dahan, auspicious and mangalic deeds begin again.
According to Pt. Manish Sharma, Jyotishacharya of Ujjain, Holashtak means eight days before Holi. In ancient times, Hiranyakashp had given many pains to the devotee Prahlada in these days. In these days astrology is advised to avoid entering a new house, marriage, shaving, starting a new business.
These days are best for worship
Devotee Prahlada had unwavering devotion to Lord Vishnu during the days of Holashtak. Prahlada’s father Hariyanakashyap tortured his son many times, tried to kill him several times, but each time his life was saved by Vishnuji’s grace. For this reason, chanting, meditation and meditation are of special importance to Lord Vishnu these days. In these days, one should chant the ‘Om Namo Bhagwate Vasudevaya Mantra’. Offer water and milk to the Shiva lingam in Shivji’s temple. High Nam: Chant the Shivaaya Mantra. Recite Hanuman Chalisa by lighting a lamp in front of Hanumanji. These days Balgopal, the childlike form of Lord Krishna, should also be specially worshiped. Anoint the Lord with the conch facing south. K कृ कृ कृa Kायायायa Namaya: Chant the mantra.
Avoid negative thoughts during Holashtak
It is believed that during the days of Holashtak, negative energy remains active. Because of this, negativity in our thoughts also increases. From the first date of Holashtak to Falgun Shukla Ashtami to the full moon, one should avoid anger, tribulation and debate. In these days, keep the mind calm and meditate on God, happiness and peace remains in life.
