Puri: The Holy Trinity’s Niladri Bije rituals following over a week-long sojourn will be held today. The deities will enter the Srimandir today in a ceremonial Pahandi procession amidst chanting of hymns conducted by the Daita servitors.
Another major part of this ritual is Lord Jagannath attempting to appease Goddess Laxmi by offering her Rasagolla. As per scriptures, Goddess Laxmi is upset with Lord Jagannath for leaving her behind during the festival of Rath Yatra.
After morning rituals are completed for the holy sibling deities, other rituals like Sandhya Alati, Sandhya Dhupa, Charmala Bandha, Singhasana Majana, and Puspanjali will be done. The deities will be then taken inside the Srimandir in a single procession or Goti Pahandi.
