 Snana Purnima is the abirbhabha divasa (loosely translated as birthday) of Lord Jagannath. Devotees bring Lord Sudarshan, Lord Balabhadra, Devi Subhadra, and Lord Jagannath in a procession (pahandi) to the Snana Mandapa. They pour 108 pitchers of water containing sugandhi dravya to the chanting of Pavamani-, Samudra Jyestha-, Pursha-, Shri-, Devi-, and Narayana-shuktas along with Mantra-raja staba and Jagannatha Saharsra-nama. The Snana Mandapa will be next to the Navagrahas (same place as last year) inside the temple.  I have attached some pictures from last year’s Snana Purnima.

 Please come to the temple with your friends and family and actively participate in this celebration and get the Lord’s blessings.
