The Start Of Days Of Holashtak 

According to Hindu Panchang, Holashtak will commence on 28th February 2023, Tuesday at 2:24 pm. It will end on 7th March 2023, Tuesday, with Holika Dahan. Holashtak are those eight days that come before Holi and starting any auspicious work on these days is considered to be unholy. 

Why The Days Of Holashtak Profane?

There are many legendary lores circulating around Holashtak, and one of them states that Lord Kamdeva disturbed Lord Shiva while he was penance. That angered Lord Shiva, and he cursed Lord Kamadeva and burnt him to ashes on the day of Phalgun Ashtami. After this, Lord Kamadev’s wife Rati worshiped Lord Shiva and prayed so that he could revive him. Lord Shiva took pity and revived Lord Kamadeva. It is said that since then the tradition of celebrating Holashtak has been going on. 

This other legend is also famous and according to that before Holika Dahan i.e. when demoness Holika sat in the fire and had Bhagat Prahlada in his lap; he was continuously tortured by his father Hiranyakashyap for eight days. Bhagat Prahlada was greatly tormented by his father, Hiranyakashyap, who was against his devotion to Lord Vishnu. Which is why any kind of pious work is not commenced during these days. 

It is also believed that during these unholy eight days the atmosphere gets filled with negative vibes and energy. Every day different planets change their motion and state. It is believed that during these days people also engage in black magic and arts. Apart from this, the practice of Tantric education is more during this period.
