Adhara Pana Of Lord Jagananth On Chariot
‘Adhar Pana‘, Shanty Udak is the healthy drink offered to the deities in earthen pots touching their lips. After offering the pot has been broken by Sevayat on Ratha ( Chariot ) . The Adhar Pana is not for devotees ( Vakta ) said by Pandit Surya Narayan Ratha Sharma. It is only for the God and Goddess who has stayed on chariot on the period Of Rathyatra to guard Lord Jagannath, Subhadra and Balavadra. They are said ‘Rath Rakhyak‘. For that, Devotees should not take the ‘Adhar Pana’ Prashad .
