The Spiritual Meaning Of Holi (Part 2)


Wearing clean white clothes mark the essence of Holi, symbolizing that we the souls are clean and pure. The soul is completely cleansed after burning its vices in the fire of remembrance of the Supreme Power (Holika Dahan).  The colors of Holi represent our original and natural soul qualities of peace, joy, love, bliss, purity, power and wisdom. We the souls need to first color the Self by connecting to God’s unconditional love and purity. We are then ready to spray them on everyone else through our thoughts, words and behavior. Playing with colors and splashing them on other people signifies that we apply permanent colors of our peace, compassion and harmony to every soul. We dissolve our differences; forgive each other and come together to unite in the colors of love and happiness. 

Ho Li means I Belong. We celebrate the joy of belonging completely to God, the Supreme Soul. Ho Li also means Past is Past, never to come back again. So, we need to stop being in the past and re-living painful memories or holding on to people’s mistakes. Ho Ly translates to spiritual purity. It means our every karma should be pure and divine. Let us not just celebrate but live the meaning of Holi every day.
