“At the beginning of winter, there is a ceremony known as the Odana-sasthi. This ceremony indicates that from that day forward, a winter covering should be given to Lord Jagannatha.” – Sri Caitanya Caritamrta, Madhya-lila16.79, purport “.
In Rajapur Jagannatha Mandir in Sri Dham Mayapur, Lord Jagannatha is beautifully dressed in starched cloth on Odana-sasthi. On this day, devotees from the Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir and the surrounding villages visit Rajapur to have this very special darshan of Lord Jagannatha. There is ecstatic kirtan, wonderful katha and delicious prasadam. The Odana-sasthi festival is most definitely a favourite winter festival in Sri Jagannatha Mandir.
