情報簡介


色彩節是印度教的節日。關於色彩節的由來眾說紛紜,但主要圍繞兩個神話故事而成:一者為王子缽羅訶羅陀(Prahlāda)因得到天神毗濕奴(Vishnu)庇佑,在火中戰勝女妖霍利卡(Holika)的傳奇;一者為俊俏的天神黑天(Krishna)與心儀牧牛女拉達(Radha)因彩色顏料而相愛的故事。

節慶在冬天完結時舉行,眾人藉以慶祝邪惡離去、春回大地。在節日正日的前一晚,信眾會帶來物件如木材及香料,放進火盆燃燒,又會燃點油燈,象徵正義戰勝邪惡。一晚過後便是節慶的重頭戲,善信會互相擲撥彩色粉或染有顏色的水,期盼萬物如花草盛開繽紛,好不熱鬧!當晚信眾會換回整潔的衣服,互相拜訪祝福。因此節日除了讓眾人不分彼此狂歡之餘,亦有助凝聚社區、互相關愛。

Intel brief


Holi is a Hindu festival. The account of its origin varies, yet it mainly was dominated by two myths. The first legend has it that prince Prahlāda, a devotee of Vishnu – the Hindu protector of good – defeated the demoness Holika in the fire. The second story was about how the handsome deity Krishna became a couple with the milkmaid Radha, by the playing a little joke by coloured dye.

The festival is held by the end of winter, thus people celebrate the return of spring as well as all goodness to earth. At the night before Holi, believers bring together items, such as woods and spices, and burn them in bonfire to symbolise the good defeated the evil. On the very day of Holi, people would throw colour powder or water to each other, with the aspiration of the world shall soon be as colourful as spring returns. What a joyful occasion! At night, believers would change into their best outfit and send good wishes by visiting each other. Therefore, Holi is a time for celebration for all, which also helps bring the society together with peace and harmony.
