Festival of Colors is a very exuberant festival, complete with music, dance and throwing of organic colored powders.
Description Holi is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion. By far our biggest festival of the year, during Holi 2012 65,000 revelers flooded the temple and grounds for 2 days day of brightly colored powder, mantra, music and a bit of “holi” mayhem.
The Holi Festival takes its name from an evil witch who lived thousands of years ago. Her name was Holika. She had a boon not be burned even if she stepped into fire. She misused this benediction to burn many babies by carrying them into fires. However, when she tried to do the same to a five year old Krishna devotee named Prahlad, she got burned instead, while Prahlad emerged from the fire unharmed. P
