Another gift by India to world! Hindu festival of Holi or Rang Panchami is now hugely popular in west (see clip), which is actually celebrated after community Holika (fire set-up) ritual followed by lord Vishnu worship and prayers, is a symbol of victory over two gunas (roughly means Qualities) – Rajas guna (egoistic/self-centered/selfishness) and Tamas guna (negative/dull/inertia/ignorant) in order to improve remaining third Saatvik Guna (Purity/Goodness/ Harmony/Peaceful/Balance).
Colors here are to activate Panchabhuta (5 elements) of cosmos – Prithvi (earth), Jal (Water), Agni (fire), Vayu (air) and Akasha (ether).
