Not Radha-Krishna, Mahadev Played The World's First Swing! No One Knows

Before starting to play colors at home on Dol Purnima, one must take a little abir and bless the feet of Lord Shiva.

New Update


BY A STAFF REPORTER: When we take the name of Holi or Holi, we take the name of Radha-Krishna's swing game. According to the Puranas, Prahlada, the son of Hiranyakashipu, was a devotee of Vishnu. The name of Holi festival was also associated with the story of the death of his aunt Holika while burning Prahlad in the fire. However, the world's first swing was not played by Radha-Krishna, but by Mahadev himself.


According to the Puranas, once Tarakasura attacked the heavens. While Kailash was then in meditation, the gods rushed to Mahadev to seek help to kill Tarakasur. But no one dares to break the meditation of the meditative Mahadev. When Kamadeva, the god of love, and his wife Rati Shiva started dancing in front of Shankara, Mahadev opened his eyes and Madan Dev was burnt to ashes by the fire of Mahadev's third eye.


When Rati wept after losing her husband, Shiva restored Kamadeva's life. The couple happily hosted a Brahma feast for the goddesses at Brajamandal. Rati puts sandalwood tilak on everyone's forehead. Shiva played the drum and played with Abir.
