- These days, the hormones and enzymes of the body also change with the seasons.
- Holika Dahan smoke is good for health
According to scriptures and folk beliefs, 8 days before Holi are called Holashtak. It is believed that no auspicious work should be done in these days. The tradition of Holashtak is associated with the change of nature and season. These days, due to changes in planetary movements and seasons, mental and physical balance is disturbed. Due to this reason, it is forbidden to do auspicious and auspicious work in these days.
Manglik works prohibited in Holashtak
Not all Mangalik works and 16 rites are performed during Holashtak. Also, if the last rites are to be performed on these days, then special poojas and shanti karmas are also done before that. This period is not considered auspicious due to the prohibition of 16 rites during Holashtak.
Body changes also with the seasons
Dr. Jagdish Chandra Joshi, president of Ujjain’s Institute of Religion, says that the eight days before Holi indicate that routine life should be changed. According to Dr. Joshi, there are changes in hormones and enzymes in the body with the change in the weather in these days. Mood swings happen. Physical and mental changes also occur due to sexual hormones. Changing weather also affects the heart and liver.
During the Holashtak, harmful bacteria and viruses become more active in the environment. The sun’s ultraviolet rays have a detrimental effect on the body in this season, moving from winter to summer. These days indicate that citric acid fruits should be used more. Along with this, the intake of hot substances should be reduced.
Holika Dahan is good for health
The fire which is released on Holika Dahan kills the body as well as the surrounding bacteria and negative energy. Because the smoke emanating from the wood pellets of cow dung, peepal, palash, neem and other trees is good for health.
