KOLHAPUR-MAHALAKSHMI

The third puja is the most important of the day. In addition to all the sixteen rites mentioned above, there also takes place the panchamrit abbisheka and the maha-abhisheka, All these rites are perfoimed except the presentation of the naivedya in full view of the visitors. The milk and panchamrit baths are certainly a sight worth beholding. A large gathering is present for this puja. Water is sprinkled from a conch on all present and tirth is distributed to all. At this time also the band in the nagarkhana is played.

The afternoon is comparatively quiet in the shrine, although devotees are coming and going all the time. The next session is the evening worship which is panchopachari. The day comes to an end with the 'shejaarati’, when the goddess is put to sleep with appropriate devotional songs. Milk and sweets are offered to the goddess before this.
