Snana Yatra – Deities in a tub

BY JAI SITA RANI DEVI DASI

KUALA LUMPUR –  It’s time again for Their Lordships, Sri Sri Jagannatha, Baladeva and Subhatra mayi to take Their yearly bath. But there was a difference, instead of taking bath in their usual manner, They were placed in a tub and abhisheked with milk, yoghurt, honey and fruit juices. They seemed to enjoy it tremendously seeing from Their beaming wide smiles.

Not to be left out, we got our home deities to be abhisheked as well, also with a difference, we bathed Their images on a mirror. Their images and Their Lordships are non-different. It was just after the lunar eclipse in Malaysia, so even our Nitai Gaura Sunder deities went for a dip…..
