Holi – One of the divine festivals celebrated by Sanatan dharma followers later on named as Hindus few centuries ago , has its own authentic values & scientific reasons for celebrations. The festival has its unique way of benefiting humans spiritually as well as physically.

Traditionally, the festival originates millions of years ago even before Lord Rama was born.

The ancient history in scripts the story of Prahlada, known for his great devotion and love to Parmatma. Prahlada was attacked by egoistic evil forces within his family certain times as they did not liked his extreme devotion. However, Parmatma protected and removed the troubling wicked shadows each time.

Holi is merely not just burning of woods, however spiritually meant to blaze one’s negative emotions   i.e. ego, greed, anger, desires & worldly attachments to annihilate in fire & offer spiritually nourished mind, body & soul. The festival gives us pious message that we too should face the obstacles coming our way with determination & whatever the odds against us may be, keeping Prahlad as our ideal, let us not allows our faith in Parmatma to dither. It gifts message to spread joy & divine love with each and everyone around.

During prehistoric times, Holi was celebrated with Palash flowers and homemade colours (Turmeric Powder/Dried flowers/Henna /Red Sandal Wood etc) which have good effect on health. Palash flowers are one of them & have number of well termed qualities.

  1. Taking 1-2 drops of palash gum increases strength of body and kills the backache problems.
  2. According to Jyotish science, Kalsarap yog which is termed as risky Kaala is removed by applying colours made by Palash flower.
  3. According to Ayurveda, when Pitta dosh in human body increase, person suffers from Heart attack & when Vayu dosh increases, other problems exist. Both of doshas can be removed using Palash colour.

Unfortunately, Later when British rule in Bharat started, they made a sharp business out of it too & best in knowing the tactics to fool, they sold harmful chemical colours to India which initiated terrible problems like cancer, kidney failures, Allergies etc so Indians could be damaged & afterwards drain money on english medicines. Hence, as decades passed by, Importance of using Palash colours and homemade colours on Holi diminished.

Now, with the initiative of Pujya Sant Shri Asaram Bapuji , people  are aware with knowledge of its rich culture. The great Spiritual Guru plays Holi with his devotees every year using palash colours to bless them with spirituality and good health.

However, to the suspicions, Anti-Hindu forces working restlessly to destroy the divine culture haven’t left the bar on defaming its values, the pious saints & now against the festive celebration .They are intentionally spreading the false propaganda of wastage of water during celebrations and against Pujya bapuji & his devotees.  Indian Paid media made an issue out of pious celebration last year misleading audience about the wastage of water.

We collected shocking huge water wastage stats on anti-humane acts which were indeed an Eye-opener.

  1. Slaughter / Abattoir house – 1.8 million liter of drinking water per day is wasted in just one slaughter and abattoir house.

  2.  Alcohol Factory – Each Alcohol & beverage factory wastes 9000million litres of water on an average.

  3. Cocacola & pepsico – alone are responsible for wasting 5.168 billion litres of water in our country. Moreover, eight PepsiCo are located in areas that govt. has specified as water-stressed areas. Due to these companies, the farmers & local men face heavy trouble for drinking water.

  4. Millions Of litre water is wasted in rain dance, 5 star hotel swimming pools & Pool parties every year. None of these offers physical & mental help logically.

  5. During IPL matches alone for 36 days, each ground uses 21.6Lakh litres of water for its maintenance.

Along with crores of litres of water is being wasted every day in production of liquor and soft drinks that are injurious to health & society. Thousands of liter water is wasted everyday due to leakage of water pipes. Indeed, the stats are not TRP holders for Paid media; and it might help Indian audience to identify hypocrisy of western culture over divine Indian traditions. #sarcasm

Why there isn’t any report on all real statistics by Paid media crooks? Instead they are interested & bribed to mislead us by uttering against Indian culture & its pious Saints.

Holi celebrated by AsaramJi Bapu is not a waste of water, as it saves millions of litres water by organizing a collective celebration by using just 6000 litres of water for thousands of sadhaks. If each of these sadhaks used chemical based colours at homes, they use 300 to 500 litres of water per person to clean the colours. So, comparing the data, even if 100000 people celebrates Holi with 6000 litres of water i.e. approximately 60ml per person, instead of using 300 to 500 litres of water , logically it is saving of water and not wasting.

Let’s rejoice the Joyful festival with our Vedic traditions & pray for healthier and prosperous Bharat .

LETS US ALL CELEBRATE VEDIC HOLI – A SAFE AND HEALTHY HOLI

What has happened has happened. Have no attachment and hatred therefore. Don’t fear the future. Don’t be obsessed with anything, have no fixations. Like Prahlad, make your heart full of love and joy.”
