Bhubaneswar: Biju Janata Dal (BJD) President and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik extended greetings to the people of the state on the auspicious occasion of Snana Purnima (ceremonial bath of the holy trinity) today.

“Greetings on the occasion of Holy Snana Purnima. May the mercy and blessings of Chaturdha Murti (Holy Trinity & Lord Sudarshan) bestow one and all with happiness and prosperity,” CM Naveen tweeted in Odia.

Noteworthy, Deva Snana Purnima is observed on the ‘Purnima’ (full moon day) of the ‘Jyeshtha’ month in the traditional Hindu calendar.

This is the first occasion in the year, as per the Hindu calendar, when the holy trinity viz. Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra,  Devi Subhadra, Sudarshan, and Madanmohan are brought out from the Jagannath Temple and taken in a procession to the Snana Bedi (bathing platform). Once there, the deities are ceremonially bathed and decorated to make an audience with the devotees.
