Importance of Holi Dooj
The festival of Holi Dooj is celebrated by applying tilak on the next day of Holi, just as the sisters wish for a long life by applying tilak to their brother at the time of Deepawali. It is believed in the scriptures that by tilak the brother on the next day of Holi, he can be saved from all the troubles.
There used to be an old lady in a village. He had a son and a daughter. The old lady had married her daughter. Then one day after the old lady's son, after Holi, he requested the sister to get tilak. The old lady allowed the son. The old lady's son was going through a forest where he finds a river on the way. The river said, I am your time, I will swallow you. The boy said, first I get my sister tilak, then take my life.
After this, a lion is found on the way, this is what he says. Then a snake is found on the way. He used to say the same to the snake. After some time he reaches his sister's house. After getting the tilak done by the sister, he goes on with a sad heart, on which the sister asks him the reason for this. Tells everything to siblings. After this, the sister says, I also stop. The girl goes to the pond where she finds an old lady. Where she tells the old lady her problem. The old lady says that it is the deed of your brother's previous birth that he is suffering. By the time he gets married, if you save him, he will survive.
The sister took meat, milk and an Odhini with her. If we go both ways then we got a lion. The sister put a piece of meat in front of the lion, and she became busy eating meat. After walking, when the snake was found, the sister kept the milk. The river was found after walking some distance. The sister bowed down with a reddrop. In this way, the sister saves the brother's life. It is believed that on the next day of Holi, if the brother gets a tilak from his sister, then all his sufferings and sorrows go away.
