Your “Festival of Colors” Rituals

Every year, Hindus greet the transformation from Winter to Spring by celebrating.  During The Festival of Holi, Hindus throughout the world share prayer, camaraderie, special food, and a general sense of mischief as they douse each other in dyes and colored water.

The Holi festival of colors draws its roots from a Hindu legend involving the courtship of Radha and Krishna. It is believed that Lord Krishna was jealous of Radha’s fair colored skin since he himself was very dark. 

Krishna asked his mother about this difference and she recommended he color Radha’s face whatever color he wanted.  Lord Krishna applied color on Radha’s face and this started the tradition of applying colors on those we love.

We should all have a set of our own ‘Legends’ in our business or family that are this fun, easy to understand, and which reinforce core values.

What ‘Legends’ do you have and are you making them as colorful as possible so all can see?

If you don’t think you have any, look around.  I bet they are there and just need to be expressed.
