Phalgun Purnima is celebrated on the Full Moon day of the Phalgun month, which usually falls between February and March as per the Gregorian Calendar.

What is the Story and Significance behind Phalguna Purnima?

The Phalgun Purnima story strongly influences Hindu traditions, not just in itself but also because of its connection with Holika Dahan and its story. According to the Phalgun Purnima story, there was once a demon king, Hiranyakashyap. Hiranyakashyap was a proud and troublesome king who tortured his kingdom and caused misery to his subjects. He once asked for a boon of immortality from Lord Brahma and was granted it after years of meditation.

This boon came with several conditions, stating that Hiranyakashyap would not be killed by a man or woman, animal or bird, not during day or night, not by any weapon, not by a God or a demon, and not in his palace or outside. This boon made him invincible. He instructed his kingdom to stop worshipping Lord Vishnu in the name of Shri Hari Vishnu. 

Prahlad, his son, was a huge devotee of Vishnu and could not do what his father said. Angered, Hiranyakashyap ordered Prahlad to be killed, and his sister Holika was responsible for sitting with Prahlad in a fire. Lord Vishnu, pleased by Prahlad’s devotion, destroyed Holika and Hiranyakashyap.

This event took place on Phalgun Purnima, and thus came the story that one can achieve anything they want if they pray to Lord Vishnu on this day. According to Phalguna Purnima significance, this day marks the end of evil, the win of good, and the achievement of desires through prayer and devotion.
