What is the Time of Holika Dahan in 2023

​If you are celebrating Holika Dahan 2023, it is necessary to understand the appropriate timing of Holika Dahan.

Holika Dahan is a Hindu festival celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Phalguna. Holika Dahan 2023 is expected to be celebrated on Tuesday, March 07.


The timing of Holika Dahan depends on the time of the full moon and the Hindu Tithi (lunar day). The exact timing of Holika Dahan may vary depending on the location and the local traditions.


However, Holika Dahan is typically performed during the Pradosh Kaal, which starts after sunset and lasts about two and a half hours. As per the Hindu scriptures, the best time to perform Holika Dahan is during the Pradosh Kaal when Bhadra prevails. Bhadra is considered an inauspicious time, and it is believed that performing any auspicious work during this period may lead to negative consequences.


So, the timing of Holika Dahan 2023 will likely be during the Pradosh Kaal on Tuesday, March 07, after sunset and before midnight. The exact timing may vary depending on the location and the local traditions.


The Significance of Holika Dahan 2023


Holika Dahan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. Today, people light bonfires to signify the burning of the demon Holika, who symbolizes sin, and to welcome the spring season.


The festival is celebrated enthusiastically in different parts of India and Nepal. People gather around the bonfire, perform rituals, sing and dance, and share sweets and snacks. Families and friends also have to come together and celebrate.


The legend behind Holika Dahan is the story of Prahlada and his aunt Holika, who was immune to fire. According to the legend, Prahlada was a devotee of Lord Vishnu, and his father, the demon king Hiranyakashipu, disapproved of his devotion to a deity other than himself. Hiranyakashipu tried to kill Prahlada several times but failed.


Finally, he asked his sister Holika to take Prahlada into a fire, thinking she would not get burned due to her immunity to fire. However, Lord Vishnu protected Prahlada, and Holika got burned to death instead, thus signifying the victory of good over evil.


Holika Dahan symbolizes the burning of Holika and the triumph of good over evil and is celebrated with great enthusiasm in different parts of India and Nepal. The festival is also associated with the arrival of spring and the end of winter. People light bonfires, perform rituals, sing and dance, and share sweets and snacks. The festival brings people together and spreads love, harmony, and positivity.


Timing of Holika Dahan 2023


The timing of Holika Dahan is based on the Hindu calendar and varies each year, depending on the date and time of the Purnima (full moon) during the Hindu month of Phalguna. Typically, Holika Dahan is performed in the evening or night during a specific period known as the Pradosh Kaal.


The Pradosh Kaal is the time period of approximately two and a half hours after sunset and before midnight, and it is considered an auspicious time for performing Holika Dahan. It is believed that performing the ritual during this period will help to ward off negative energies and bring good luck and prosperity.
