Holika Dahan also is celebrated by burning Holika, the devil. For many traditions in Hinduism, Holi celebrates the death of Holika in order to save Prahlad by Vishnu in the city of Multan, and thus Holi gets its name.
Prahlad’s true devotion towards vishnu is ultimate and kindness towards other people and selfless devotional worship is marvellous.
Holi is a symbol of the triumph of good over evil. It marks the onset of spring and is also celebrated to give thanks for a good harvest.
On the first day of the celebrations known as Holika Dahan puja, a bonfire is lit. People gather around the fire known as Chhoti Holi and perform ‘pingpuja’ while praying for the longevity and prosperity of their loved ones. On the second day of celebrations known as Rangpanchami, people play with colours.

Holi is the “Festival of Colours”. However, the colours used on this day also have an interesting tale behind them. It was believed that Krishna used to celebrate the festival with colours at Vrindavan and Gokul.
have some words in my mind for true devotion..
True devotion is may be divine love(lovefrom god). because through religious view, in order to be good, people must filled with love and to be devout and very ready and apt to perform deeds of love.
Do worship and pray God selflessly with clear intention. Be helpful and kind to everyone.
Serve people and everyone who are struggling without any expectations of getting back something in return.
Hold someone’s hand when they feel vulnerable.
