VEER JATRA

Shreenath Veer Mhaskoba festival is the annual pilgrimage of Lord Mhaskoba Maharaj celebrated in the Veer village which is situated 50 Km from Pune in Maharashtra of India. The village, in the bank of the river Purnaganga, comes under the Taluka Purandar, overlooking the historical Purandar Fort at a distance. The festival takes place during the Magh Poornima (full moon of February) and continues for ten days; the Sunday and the last day being the most prominent of all the events. Millions of followers and devotees of Mhaskoba Maharaj gather to the Shreenath Mhaskoba temple at Veer to show their faith and reverence from all around Maharashtra and its adjacent states. Hundreds of Palkhis with the god’s idol are brought here with Tutari(regional bugle), saffron flag and decorated bullock cart. Saffron flag is the rational heritage of Maharashtra culture. It is put on a long metallic pole and carried by the devotees on shoulder to the temple. They show their devotion by chanting Mantras to their almighty god, blowing red Gulal in the air and performing religious rural activities which are rarely known to the common people. The entire temple premise gets submerged into the colour red with a dark red floor surrounded by the air soaked in red Gulal powder. The entire area gets sunk into the adrenaline rush of human devotion and faith. Amidst the devotional movement, spiritual leaders from the community perform Chabina dance with holy sword. They then pronounce the prophecy of the climate and the harvesting prospect of the upcoming year. This part of the event is the cynosure of the entire festival. People attending the pilgrimage for many years testify that earning blessings of Lord Mhaskoba Maharaj with devotional worship fulfills their prayers and wishes.
