There is a question in the mind of the people that the Holika who tried to burn a devotee like Prahlad, for thousands of years, why do we worship?
There is one thing behind Holika Pooja. On the day the Holika was sit in the fire with Prahlad, on that day all the people of the town burnt the fire in the house and prayed to Agnidev to protect Prahlad. This phenomenon is reflected in how Pahlad had won the Lokrahrid.
Lord Agni accepted the prayer of people's heart and was done according to the wishes of the people. Holika was destroyed and Prahlad, who had crossed the test of fire, became Narshreshth. Started as a prayer to save Prahlad, Agni Pooja of the house to house took the form of community worship according to the chronological order and the worship of Holika began in the street.
The main relation of this festival is from the child Prahlad. Prahlad was the devotee of Lord Vishnu but he was born into a family, whose leader was cruel and merciless. Prahlad's father, the unselfish Hiranyakashyap, considered himself to be God and hoped from the people that he too worshiped him and worshiped Lord. The person who did not do this was either killed or put in prison.
When the son of Hiranyakashyap Prahlad became a devotee of Lord Vishnu then the ruthlessly threatened him and threatened him in many ways that he would worship him instead of Vishnu and worship him. But Prahalad's Lord Vishnu had unwavering devotion and he remained worshiping them without distracting.
Even after trying all the efforts, when Prahlad was not considered, Hiranyakashyap tried to kill him. For this, he has done many things but he didn’t die. In the end, Hiranyakashyap called his sister Holika, who was the boon of not burning in the fire and planned to kill Prahlad. One day the ruthless king hung a lot of sticks and set fire on it.
When all the woods started burning at a fast speed, the king Hiranyakashyap ordered his sister to go in between the burning sticks with Prahlad. Holika did the same.
By accident, Prahlad survived, but the Holika was consumed by burning in spite of receiving the boon. Since then, Prahlad's devotion and demonic monks have been celebrating this festival in memory of Holika.
