Story of Holika Dahan 

We all have come to hear the story of Holika Dahan since childhood.

According to mythology, in ancient times there lived a king whose name was Hiranyakashyap.

Prahlad, the son of Hiranyakashipu, was an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu.

Hiranyakashyap never liked that his son was engrossed in the worship of Lord Vishnu, due to which he tried to kill his son.

Once Hiranyakashyap asked his sister Holika to sit in the fire with Prahlad.

According to the legend, Holika had the boon of not burning in the fire, but due to the anger of Lord Vishnu, Holika was burnt to ashes in the fire and Prahlad was saved.

Since then Holika Dahan came into vogue and Holika Dahan was started every year. 

According to Vastu Shastra, planting these 5 plants in the house is considered very auspicious, happiness and prosperity remains
