Odisha government refused to make public the secret ritual of “Brahma Paribartan”

Puri:28/9/18 Odisha government  refused to make public the mismanagement of secret ritual of “Brahma Paribartan” (Changing the soul) of Lord Jagannath.

The alleged mismanagement in Lord Jagannath’s ‘Brahma Paribartan’ had sparked sharp criticism from various quarters as there inordinate delay in performance of the ritual.

Over a dozen of servitors were found guilty of perpetrating irregularities. They are being taken to task under section 21 (b) of the Temple Administration Act. However the inquiry report on the lapses of Brahma Parivartan of the Lords can not be made public as it’s sensitive issue liked to secret rituals of the lords”, said Chief Administrator of Jagannath Temple Administration, Pradipta Mohanpatra
