Hiranyakashipu had a sister named holika. His son was Prahlada
Prahlada refused to give up praying to Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu got angry and ordered Prahlad death. Multiple attempts were made.
In one attempt he asks Prahlad to sit in a pile of sticks with holika. Holika was immune to fire provided she had a shawl. The end result was she look ok st her shawl and in the fire she does it Prahlad lives
Finally Prahlada is ordered to embrace a burning pole and from the poke Lord Narsinh appears and he kills Huranyakashipu
The story is a beautiful story if steps ok f Yoga. However, since this is public blog, I cannot give the true meaning
An easy to understand meaning is as follows
Hiranyakashipu is ego and it always wants to take credit for everything in life. His sister Holika is fake bhakti which is loyal to ego. Prahlada is true bhakti
Eventually in the trials of life fake bhakti dies but only true bhakti will live
99% of the people have fake bhakti. It is done for material gains or to impress others.
Writing blogs falls in category of fake bhakti. It is done to impress others. Going to bhajan, Kirtan, singing dancing is also often fake. Display of kiya yoga in public is a crime against the purity of Shakti. She is not to be displayed many people are guilty of it
People sing bhajan in nice voices. It may impress people but does not impress God. This shiv ratri I saw someone spend a fortune and do tandav dance -. Shiv gave up riches seeing wealth as something worthless. How can you impress shiv ?
The list of imposter bhakti – Love fir Hod us long
Can you love God while burning with tremendous worldly pain ? There was only one Prahlad !
