Let Your Life Be Full
Of Color And Joy

23 Mar 2016 Bangalore, India


Life is colorful! In India this is the last full moon of the year, in the next new moon the New Year begins. 15 days after this full moon is the New Year in India. So before that last full moon, the tradition is to just take all the old stuff and put it in the fire and play Holi with colors.

There are many stories associated with Holi -- of it being a beautiful full moon day, of coming of spring , and of Krishna dancing with all the Gopis (who are eternally the intimate friends of Radha and Lord Krishna) while playing Holi..
Holi is a festival when we break all the barriers and feel that we are all one. This is the message of Holi, and so we put colors on each other and say, "Let your life be colorful."
