Chariot Construction Initiation Pooja and Holi Celebration
Chariot Construction initiation pooja:
Construction of Chariots for upcoming Puri Shree Jagannatha Ratha Yatra begins on Akshaya Trutiya. On this auspicious day Priests hand over the agnya mala( order of Shree jagannatha) to carpenters to initiate the construction. In honour of this auspicious ritual of Puri , Ratha Anukula pooja has been scheduled to be held in our temple.
Holi celebration was not possible after dola poornima pooja and Abira archana on feb 25th because of the cold weather in Michigan. Devotees can take the opportunity to celebrate Holi or the color of festival in our temple front yard while welcoming the spring to Michigan with full spirit.
