Legend : The Victory Of Spiritual Bliss

The legend prevalent in South India is that of Kamdev-the Love God. Armed with the sugar cane bow having string made of a line of humming bees, and the arrows of passion and desire, Kamdev aimed his arrow at Lord Shiva who was engrossed in deep meditation. Infuraited, Lord Shiva opened his third eye and reduced Kamdev to ashes. Rati, Kamdev's wife pleaded to Lord Shiva to bring him back to life. Hence, the songs sung during this festival tell the pathetic tale of Rati. According to this legend Holi is a celebration of the victory of spiritual bliss over material pleasures.
