Nandotsava, Janmastami celebrated at Barpeta

By Correspondent

BARPETA, Aug 24 - With the celebration of �Nandotsava� or �Pek Jatra� today, the festivities of Janmastami came to an end at the Barpeta Satra. A huge gathering since the morning, specially of the young and the adolescent made the satra campus very lively today.

Beginning with the morning prayers, �Nandotsava� was celebrated with full satriya tradition and rituals. �Janmajatra� was performed where the preacher completed the process of nomenclature of Sri Krishna.

Simultaneous with the religious rituals, young boys had fun with mud in the forecourt of the satra. It is said that elated over the birth of a baby boy comparatively at a later age, Nandaraj organised a special programme on the day next to Sri Krishna's birth. The people of his state engaged themselves in merrymaking in the programme. The �Pek Jatra� or the fun with mud is an imitation of the age-old tradition.

Janmastami was also observed in Barpeta Satra with traditional fervour and gaiety on the August 23. No rituals pertaining to the satriya tradition and culture were left out in the daylong celebration. Lights were lit at the satra overnight.

The Janmastami or the birthday of Sri Krishna was also observed at Bahari Satra and Garakhiya Gosai Than at Sarbhog.
