Puri, July 22: The Trinity (Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra) is going to host the fellow deities with beverages on the chariots in the afternoon today. They will extend thanks to the subsidiary Gods and Goddesses who rendered their service and accompanied them in the chariots during the Rath Yatra.
In pursuance of the Adhara Pana ritual, a sweet, aromatic and syrupy drink (pana) made of a mixture of milk, molasses, honey, cheese, banana, camphor, nutmeg and black pepper among others are offered before Lord Jagannath and his siblings.
The servitors offer the drink in nine different pitchers on the three chariots. The siblings sip it with pleasure and offer the side deities who accompanied them in the Raths.
