Snanayatra - The Bathing Festival

Sunday, 25 July 2021

Snanayatra is a pastime of Lord Jagannath - Lord of the Universe. On this day, Jagannath, His brother, Balarama, and sister, Subhadra, shower Their mercy by allowing Themselves to be bathed by all following the original tradition of worship at Jagannath Puri, India. Everyone enthusiastically assembles at the Temple in the morning to bathe Them in the midst of kirtan.The pastimes are such that after the bathing, They become sick and need to rest and take medicines for two weeks until They recover and are well enough to come out for Rathayatra.
