Significance of Holika Puja

The Holika Puja on Holi provides prosperity, wealth, and power. Though a Demoness, Holika is worshipped along with Prahlada before Holika Dahan. 

Sacred books recommend performing Holika Puja before Holika Dahan. Choosing the date and time is based on Hindu Panchang. It is essential to perform Holika Dahan with correct timing as doing it at some unacceptable time could bring suffering and misfortune.
