Phalgun Purnima is considered to be the last month of the Hindu calendar. Hence, the New Year begins after this. Observing a fast on this day helps one to enter into the New Year with new energy. Also, all the sins of this and the previous years are washed away. Worshipping Lord Narasimha, the fourth incarnation of Lord Vishnu provides salvation for our past sins on this day.
There are many mythical beliefs about the Phalgun Purnima but it is important to know which is the most reliable. According to the story, Hiranya Kashyap was a demon king who wanted to kill his son. He took the help of his sister Holika to kill his son. The demonic Holika had a boon that the fire cannot burn her. Hiranya Kashyap wanted to burn his son taking advantage of this boon. As soon as Holika sat in the Fire with Prahlad, the situation changed. Prahlad had the blessings of God. This was the reason that Holika died in the Fire and nothing happened to Prahlad. Lord Vishnu protected Prahlad and saved him from Burning. This is the reason why the festival of Holi is celebrated on the next day. It is also seen as a victory of good over the Evil.
