Aagyan Mala Bije: Last minute dash in Puri for Jagannath Rath Yatra

After the Supreme Court gave its nod to the Lord Jagannath Rath Yatra at Puri, hectic last minute preparations are on full swing for smooth conduct of the annual festival to be held on June 23. The priests of the 12th century shrine performed the ritualistic ‘Agyan Mala Bije’ (a token garland signifying permission of the deity for the festival) for the three chariots. Senior servitors of the temple carried the ‘Agyan Mala’ from the sanctum sanctorum of the temple and went in a procession to the three chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra and performed puja. According to the tradition, the three chariots will be pulled only after getting ‘Agyan Mala’ from the Lord.
