Event Details

Radha Krishna Temple invites you to Holika Dahan on Thursday, March 1st, starting at 6pm, at the Radha Krishna Temple, 1450 N. Watters Rd., Allen, TX.

Let us celebrate the triumph of good over evil with the burning of Holika and puja.  Hiranyakasap had been granted special boons by Brahma which made him practically invincible.  He could not control his ego and soon forced his people to see him as God.  All obeyed except his son Prahalad who remained devoted to Lord Vishnu.  King Hiranyakassip could no longer tolerate and sent his sister Holika who had her own boon of being able to withstand fire to kill Prahalad.  Prahalad’s deep immovable devotion made him invincible and Holika herself burned in the fire.
