Odisha: Famous Snaana Purnima of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra & Devi Subhadra held at Sri Mandir in Puri

In Odisha, the famous Snaana Purnima or the bathing ritual of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra is being held at Sri Mandir in Puri today. However, due to the prevailing pandemic situation, the rituals are being conducted without general devotees.

As per the tradition, the deities were ushered onto the Snana Mandapa in the temple premises earlier today where they were bathed in 108 pitchers of aromatic water as per the established rituals. Accordingly, the bathing ritual of the deities known as’ jalalagi niti’, has been completed by the servitors by placing 35 pots of water for Lord Jagannath, 33 pots for Lord Balabhadra, 22 pots for Devi Subhadra and 18 pots for Sudarshana, together known as ‘Chaturdha Murti’.

Soon after the ritualistic bath, the deities were then adorned with the attire of Lord Ganesha known as Gajanana Besa. The rituals are being telecast by the TV channels so that the general devotees can have the darshan of the divine, despite the pandemic. The snana purnima of the deities is one of the most important rituals of the Srimandir ahead of the world famous Rath Yatra that will be celebrated in the holy city of Puri on the 12 of next month.
