World-famous ‘Joranda Mela’ kick starts in Dhenkanal

Dhenkanal : The world-famous ‘Joranda Mela’ at Mahima Gaadi of Joranda in Dhenkanal district kick-started on Tuesday amid Covid-19 restrictions.

A large number of Mahima Sadhus, devotees, monks, and pilgrims have congregated in Joranda to worship Mahima Gosain’s Samadhi Pitha (shrine) in Sunya Mandir (temple).

The sadhus, who have congregated at the temple from across the state, will participate in the festival which will continue till February 16.

Instead of a weeklong fair, this year the festival is going to be held for only two days. The sadhus have restricted the festival to only performing rituals due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

A ‘Havan’ or ‘Yagya’ will be held as a part of the Joranda Mela. The Sadhus will worship their supreme sadhus at their monastery and offer holy fire.

Prayers will be made for the welfare of the world, which goes for spreading the message of love and humanity in the name of Mahima Gosain, the founder of Mahima Dharma.

Worth mentioning, the festival is observed every year on the full moon day of the Hindu calendar month of Magha (Magha Purnima) which falls in the month of January or February.
