Banajaga team starts journey to search daru

Puri: After getting swapnadesh from Kakatpur Mangala, the Banaga Yatra team has started its journey today morning in search of darus, the neem tree.

The 100-member team divided into four groups and resumed their journey in all four directions from Deuli mutt. Each group is headed by one badagrahi.

After performing the ‘Majana’ ritual at Mangala temple in Kakatpur on Friday, the team rested for a full day at the mutt and put brakes on the expedition work yesterday on account of lunar eclipse.

The team completed all rituals and chanted Swapnabati mantra to get swapnadesh from Mangala last night before leaving for the search today.
