European Devotee Yearning For Jagannath Darshan Stranded In Balasore

Balasore: An European devotee who visits Puri every year during the Rath Yatra for the darshan of Lord Jagannath has been stranded in Balasore for the last two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 Leelabati, who has dedicated her life in the service of Lord Jagannath, has left her country and staying in India for the last 10 years. She says that the joy of going abroad, owning immense wealth, cars, houses, etc. is momentary. There is real happiness and joy in taking the name of God.

Leelabati has been touring the corners of the country with the Chidananda Mission. After arriving at Balasore, she stopped at the Radha Madhav Gaudiya Math near Khantapada. Now the only hope and aspiration in her mind is that she will get the darshan of Lord Jagannath.
