TULJAPUR - BHAVANI

The other routine feature of the temple rituals is the Chhabina or procession. This is not unlike the palanquin processions at other places. It is taken out on each Tuesday, then the last two days of the first or Shuddha fortnight and the first day of the second or vadya fortnight of every month. In addition, the first nine days of Ashvin, that is, during the Nava-ratra festival and the seven days from eighth to the fifteenth of the first half of Pausha, the Chhabina is taken out. The procession starts immediately after the evening puja is over. The image is placed in an lambari' and that ambari is placed on some of the vahans of the devi. There is a band of musicians to lead it. A number of Bhutes and Gondhalis accompany it and the shouts of Ude, Ude, Ambabaicha Ude, fill the atmosphere. During the days when the devi is asleep the procession is not taken out nor on the full-moon day of the month of Phalgun.
