Cured Sibling Deities To Step Out For Naba Jaubana Besha At Puri Temple Today
Bhubaneswar: After recuperating at Anasara Ghara for a fortnight, Lord Jagannath and his siblings have regained their youthful looks and will again give darshan to devotees in an attractive look. Known as Naba Jaubana Besha, the ritual will be held on Tuesday.
Naba Jaubana Besha is held to celebrate the rejuvenation of Lord Jagannath’s body. Daitas wash the body of the Lord and repaint it except for the eyes.
In this ceremony, the eyes of the idols are painted by their respective priests and puja restarts at the Puri shrine.
Lakhs of devotees throng the Jagannath temple during the Naba Jaubana Besha darshan to seek blessings from the divine siblings.
Notably, after taking bath during Snana Yatra, Lord Jagannath and his siblings fall ill. They are then put up at Anasara Pindi to recuperate. The sibling deities are said to become completely cured once the Anasara rituals come to an end.
Ticket-holder devotees will have access to the Paramanik darshan of the deities from the Bhitara Katha of the temple from 2.30 pm to 3.30 pm.
The ‘Sarbasadharan darshan’ (free public darshan) will be held for an hour from 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm.
General darshan for devotees has been restricted in the temple till 2.30 pm on Tuesday for the special Banaka Lagi rituals.
Meanwhile, the famous Rath Yatra will be held after two days. Maharana Sevaka, Bhoi Sevaka, Rupakara and Chitrakara Sevayats have been giving final touches to the chariots.
