The festival of Holi bring happiness, enthusiasm and rapture on one hand and the problem of
taking off colors on the other. In the morning when we start playing Holi, we don’t think,
that the color applied on our skin will even go off or not.
Falgun Moon full is likey apparent for two days on 22 and 23 March. On 22 march, Tuesday,
Moon full will be clearly visible after 15:13 as prodosh vayapini.
But from 15:13 till 04:22 the next day it will remain as Bhadra vayapini.
The next day on 23 march, Wednesday, Moon full will be Pradosh vayapini.
But it will be visible for three strikes. and Pratipada date will grow,
therefore as per the Scriptures Holika dehan will be on 23 March.
It is correct to perform holika dehan on 23 march as pradosh is joined with moon full.
Holika dehan can also be preformed during the auspicious time from 16:55 till 17:31.
