 'Chaka Bije Niti' of Lord Jagannath and his siblings will be performed today.

Puri, July 1: 'Chaka Bije Niti' of Lord Jagannath and his siblings will be performed today. It is one of the many significant rituals performed during the 'Anasara' period at Puri Srimandir, ensuring the recovery of Lord Jagannath and his siblings. This ritual is held on the 'Dasami tithi'.


After this ritualistic bath on ‘Snana Yatra’, the deities are believed to develop a fever and are taken, one by one, in Anasara Pahandi to a sick room called 'Anasara Gruha,' where their 15-day quarantine period begins.


Following these days of complete rest and treatment for the fever, the 'Chaka Bije Niti' is observed. 

On this day, after the 'Madhyana Dhupa,' Daitapati servitors of the temple shift the deities from their 'Anasara Pindi' to a special 'Asana' called 'chaka,' made of black granite rock near the 'Anasara Ghara.' They are made to sit upright, symbolizing their recovery. It is believed that the deities regain their usual balance and feel better after sitting properly on these rocks.


This ritual marks the deities’ complete recovery from their illness, indicating they are fit to return to their 'Ratna Bedi.'
