全球節慶 | 本集 精彩教學影片(講解老師:Chris & Betty 老師)

Celebrate life with a serious splash of color.

    In India, people celebrate the arrival of spring with Holi, the Festival of Colors. This event brings people together to celebrate life, love, and the victory of good over evil. During the festival, people express their joy and happiness by throwing powdered dye or splashing colored water over each other. These colors have various meanings. They can mean a new life and even symbolize sin. For some, washing off the dye after the festival is seen as a way to get a new start and rid themselves of  evil.

 Holi is linked to several legends, which representdifferent aspects of the tradition. In one story, the god Vishnu saves a righteous prince from his evil father and aunt, Holika. This tale symbolizes the victory of good over evil and is also where the name Holi comes from.

    Another story is about the god Krishna and the goddess Radha. Krishna, who has dark blue skin, loves Radha but worries that she won't accept him because of his skin color. One day, Krishna playfully colors Radha's skin to be like his and bravely admits his love for her. This tale has to do with the many colors of Holi along with love, unity, and acceptance.

用大量潑濺的色彩來慶祝生活。
  在印度,人們用色彩節慶侯麗節慶祝春天的到來。這項活動讓人們聚集在一起慶祝生活、愛以及正義戰勝邪惡。節慶期間,人們透過互相丟擲粉狀染料或潑灑五顏六色的水來表達他們的喜悅及幸福。這些顏色有各式各樣的意義。它們可以指新生活甚至是象徵罪惡。對某些人來說,在節慶後洗掉染料被視為一種重新開始和擺脫邪惡的方式。
  侯麗節和一些傳說有關,它們代表著該傳統的不同面向。在一則故事中,毗濕奴神將一名正直王子從他的邪惡父親及姑姑霍利卡手中拯救出來。這則傳說象徵著正義戰勝邪惡,也是侯麗節名稱的由來。
  另一則故事和克里希納神及拉達女神有關。有著深藍色皮膚的克里希納愛著拉達,但擔心她會因為他的膚色而不接受他。有一天,克里希納鬧著玩地將拉達的皮膚塗上與自己相似的顏色,勇敢地承認了他對她的愛意。這則傳說和侯麗節的許多色彩以及愛、團結和接納有關。
