- Like Deepawali and Shivaratri, the night of Holika Dahan has also been called Maharatri, special fruit is obtained from the worship done in it.
Holika Dahan will be performed on Phalgun Purnima Sunday, 28 March. This time there will be no inauspicious yoga of Bhadra on Holi and you will get about 2 hours and 10 minutes for Holika Dahan. On the day of Holika Dahan, Bhadrakala will start from sunrise in the morning and end in the afternoon. Therefore, Holika Dahan will be auspicious in the evening at dusk.
Holika Dahan meets auspicious and inauspicious signs
If the flame of Holika Dahan rises towards the east, then in the coming time, opportunities for advancement in the field of religion, spirituality, education and employment increase. At the same time, if the flame of fire rises in the west, then livestock are benefited. When the wind moves towards the north, there is peace and peace in the country and society. Apart from this, if there is a flame of Holi in the south direction then turbulence and tribulation increases. There are fights and disputes. Livestock loss occurs. Criminal cases abound.
Phalgun Purnima is also a Maharatri
Dr. Ganesh Mishra, astrologer of the Central Sanskrit University Jagannathpuri, says that the night of Holika Dahan is included in the category of Maharatri just like Deepawali and Shiva night. There is also a law to put the ashes of Holika on the forehead. By doing this, physical troubles are removed. By chanting mantras on this night, those mantras are attained. Life becomes happy, all the troubles in life are solved automatically.
Rahu is in fiery form on full moon day
Dr. Mishra said that inauspicious effects of planets also increase in the eight days before Holi. Moon on Ashtami, Sun on Navami, Saturn on Dashmi, Venus on Ekadashi, Guru on Dwadashi, Mercury on Trayodashi, Mars on Chaturdashi and Rahu on Poornima remain in a fiery nature.
The inauspicious effects of Rahu increase mental tension, confusion and unknown fear. It is because of Rahu that many people take wrong decisions. Therefore, to avoid Rahu, cow dung cakes or condes are burnt in Holika Dahan. On the full moon date, one should take a bath by mixing Ganga water and cow urine.
