Jajpur/ Berhampur, Ap 6: Devotees gathered in large numbers on Saturday for taking holy dip at the convergence of rivers Rushikulya and Badanadi near Aska for Maha Baruni Snana.

 

Despite the intense heat conditions, people from various regions of the state assembled at the esteemed location, commonly referred to as the 'Sangam' of Odisha, situated around 5 km from Aska. The ceremonial bathing rituals began in the wee hour of Saturday morning and will continue until dusk.

 

According to tradition, taking a dip at this juncture on this auspicious day is believed to cleanse individuals of their sins, alleviate their hardships, and cure ailments. The Rushikulya River, originating from Rushimala Mountain in Kandhamal district and merging with the Bay of Bengal near Ganjam town, holds immense significance in religious beliefs. To ensure the safety of devotees, authorities from the Aska police were present in the area.

 

A similar enthusiastic atmosphere was observed at Kanjiama and Bahuda near Barahi in Ganjam district, where preparations were made for the ceremonial bathing in the Mahendratanaya River near Kerandi, Baghasala, Kamadhenu, and Machamera in Gajapati district.

 

In Jajpur, hundreds of thousands of devotees, including pilgrims from various parts of the district and beyond, participated in a sacred bath at the Daswasamedha ghat on the banks of the river Baitarini. Afterwards, they performed 'pinda' rituals to honor their ancestors as part of the Baruni observances.

 

Additionally, the pilgrims paid respects at the Biraja shrine, the primary deity of the district. Various ceremonial rituals, including 'alati' and 'Biswa shanti yagna', are being conducted as part of the festive celebrations.
