Holashtak: Understanding Black Magic and Signs of Being Bewitched 

Holi is well known as the festival of colours and is awaited by everyone with a lot of excitement. But hold onto your hats, folks, let me enlighten you with the mind-blowing revelation about Holi. Did you know that Holi is a 9-day festival and not just one? Yes! You heard it right, 9 days of fun…or wait, maybe not.

The first eight days of Holi aren’t about celebrations, they are the dark days of anticipation when we eagerly wait for the real fun to begin. It is like something good is happening after waiting eight days of inauspicious muhurat.

According to the wise folks following the Purnimant calendar in North India, this pre-Holi phase is called Holashtak. It starts from the ‘Ashtami tithi’ of ‘Shukla paksha’ of ‘Phalgun’ month and continues till the ‘Purnima tithi’. 

The word “Holashtak” comes from “Holi,” which is a colourful festival, and “Ashtak,” meaning eight. So, Holashtak refers to the eight days just before Holi, the festival of colours.

The mythological reason behind Holashtak

According to popular myths, Holashtak days are considered unlucky for a few reasons. One story involves Kamadeva, who angered Lord Shiva and got punished during these days. Kamadeva’s wife, Rati, prayed to Lord Shiva to return him. That’s why these days are seen as unfortunate.

Another tale tells of Prahlada, a devotee of Lord Vishnu, who worshipped him for eight days during Holashtak and received divine blessings.

These stories explain why Holashtak days are considered less lucky and why people are cautious during this time.

The scientific reason behind Holashtak

Holi is not just about religion, festivities and mythology. There is also a scientific reason why all auspicious work is prohibited during Holashtak. According to scientific beliefs, negative energy enters nature from the Ashtami tithi of Phalguna Shukla Paksha. Therefore, doing any auspicious work is avoided during this period.
