NiladriBije (2/2) To soften the anger of Lakshmi, Jagannatha offers Her ‘Rasagola’ to win her heart #RasagolaDibasa
In the coastal city of Puri in Odisha, the rasgulla has been the traditional offering (bhog) to the Hindu goddess Lakshmi. According to the tradition, her consort Jagannath tries to pacify her by offering her rasagullas, so that she lets his convoy enter the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. This ritual, known as Bachanika, is part of the “Niladri Bije” (or “Arrival of the God”) observance, which marks the return of the deities to the temple.
