Udupi, Dec 17, 2015 : As many as 40 devotees including men and women offered Made Snana, the ritual of rolling on leftover meals on plantain leaves, at the Sri Subrahmanya Gudi of Krishna Mutt on December 17, Thursday.
Prior to the ritual, nearly 100 people had meals in the Mutt premises. A scholar of the Mutt clarified that the ritual was held as per the wishes and beliefs of the devotees. He also stated that devotees offered Made Snana in the Mutt since five centuries.
One of the devotees who had offered the Seve said he had been offering Made Snana since 12 years and that it had proved beneficial to him as far as his health was concerned. He also reiterated that he would offer Made Snana in the coming years too.
In the meantime, the Yede Snana Seve was offered by devotees by rolling over Prasadam offered to the Lord at the Muchilkodu Subrahmanya Temple of Kukkikatte. This shrine is under the management of Pejawar Mutt and it was Pejawar seer himself who had mooted the idea of holding Yede Snana instead of the controversial Made Snana practice.
