Lord Jagannath and siblings to enter Srimandir in Niladri Bije today
Puri: The deities of Lords Jagannath, Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra will re-enter the Srimandir on Monday in a special ritual called Niladri Bije. The twelve-day sojourn of the holy siblings comes to end today.
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.
