Holi is a day in India when people throw brightly colored water and powder over just about everyone they can! It is often known as the festival of colors. In today’s day, this festival has become mundane and people have forgotten the actual spiritual roots of this festival –
Lord Krishna and the cowherd maidens played by spraying colored water at one other! This is actually an act of devotion and love that devotees express to glorify the Supreme personality of Godhead – Sri Krishna.
Playing Holi in devotional service is far different than playing holi in general society. Devotees play holi to give pleasure to Lord. Its not an act of arrogance, pride or ego. Its an act of love. People who love to celebrate holi should watch this video and learn how holi can be an act of actual LOVE and not an expression of lust!
In this video you will see the nice decoration of the deities in the mood of holi. You will see how the devotees of the Lord engage in these pastimes. No fighting, no revenge – simply love. The center is Lord Sri Krishna!!!
