--Puri Rath Yatra: Adapa Abhada to be availabel at Shreegundicha Temple from doday
Puri, Jul 14: Even as Darshan of Lord Jagannath and His siblings Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra on Adop Mandap has been restricted in view of Covid19 pandemic, still devotees can avail the Adapa Abhada (Mahaprasad) outside the Shreegundicha Temple from today.
According to rituals, Adapa Abhada is offered to the Trinity on the very next day of their arrival on the Adop Mandap, also known as Janmabedi, in the annual Rath Yatra.
While the deities had arrived on Monday, they were brought in Goti Pahandi from their respective Raths and seated on the Adapa Mandap yesterday. Thereafter, all required rituals were conducted.
This morning, usual rituals like Mangalalati, Mailama, Abakash niti and Tadaplagi were conducted and thereafter Sakala Dhupa was conducted. During Sakala Dhupa, Khechudi Bhog was offered to the Chaturdhamurari, according to information.
The holy Adapa Abhada is likely to be offered to the Trinity in a few hours. A token system has been made to provide Adop Abhada to devotees outside the Shreegundicah Temple at affordable prices. Two counters, one at Bus stand and another at North Gate of the Shreemandir, have opened for the purpose.
Notably, Raja Balabhadra, Maa Subhadra and Mahaprabhu Jagannath arrived at the Shreegundicha Temple on a nine-day annual sojourn by their respective Raths- Taladhwaja, Darpadalana and Nandighosh on Monday. They will spend seven days on Adapa Mandap and then make the return sojourn, called Bahuda Yatra.
