There are several legends about the origin of the Holi festival. One of them is this. Shiva incinerated Kama, who tried to bring him out of meditation, with his third eye, the god of love, after which Kama remained incorporeal. But at the request of Shiva’s wife Parvati and Kama’s wife, goddess Rati Shiva, he returned Kama's body for just 3 months a year. And now when Kama has a body, everything is blossoming, and happy people celebrate the most cheerful holiday of spring. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak | Getty Images):
