How to Celebrate Holi
Holi is a sacred festival of identity of Indian culture, an opportunity to express mutual love and harmony by eradicating discrimination. It is a celebration of evoking the happiness of egolessness and simple spontaneity.

This festival of colors is the vision of our ancestors, which communicates unity in the society even in the midst of many disparities. While the splash of colorful colors of Holi gives a pleasant feeling in the mind, if caution, restraint and discretion are not maintained then these colors also become sad. Therefore, it is very important to take some precautions on this festival.

In ancient times people used to play Holi with colors made from Palash flowers or Abir-Gulal, Kum-Kum-Haldi. But in present times colors made from chemical elements are used. These colors get deposited on the skin in the form of patches. Hence such colors should be avoided. If someone has applied such a color on you, then immediately after applying ubtan made from a mixture of gram flour, flour, milk, turmeric and oil, the color should be washed off. If done, it becomes more easy to remove the color.

Before playing the color, your body should be rubbed properly with coconut or mustard oil. So that the oily skin is not affected by the color and only by applying soap, the color gets removed from the body. Special care should be taken that the color does not get in the eyes or in the mouth. This can cause damage to the eyes and lungs.

Those who play Holi with mud and animal excreta, they not only become impure themselves, they also commit the sin of polluting others. Therefore, it is better to stay away from those who do such evil deeds.
At present, there is a bad practice of drinking alcohol or Bhang on the day of Holi. A drunken person becomes irrational and commits lousy to lousy misdeeds. Therefore, one should be careful from intoxicants and people who are intoxicated. Nowadays, the era of freedom has started everywhere. In the blind imitation of western world, Indian society is also losing its conscience of good and bad. Those who are a seeker, have respect for culture, have faith in God and Guru, such people should have chivalry and restraint in particular. Men celebrate Holi only with men and women only with women. It is good if women celebrate Holi in their own home so that they can be saved from the evil eye of the people of evil tendencies.

Holi is not just a festival of burning heaps of wood. It is a holy day to remove the weaknesses of the mind, to burn the dirty desires of the mind. Holi is the festival of burning your vices, addictions and evils. …..
From this day onwards, by sacrificing luxuriant desires, divine qualities like love, goodwill, sympathy, fidelity, japanishtha, remembrance, integrity, self-righteousness, compassion, mercy etc. should be developed in your life. Devotee Prahlad’s firm devotion to God, love of God, tolerance, and equanimity should be invoked.
