Hundreds of saints and sadhus from across the nation, alongwith the Gajapati king of Puri Dibyasingh Dev, on Friday evening participated in the Samudra Arati being performed by the Swami Nischalananda Saraswati, the Sankaracharya of Puri Goberdhan Peeth.
On the occasion of one-year completion of the Arati, the Gobardhan Peeth authorities organised a grand function on the sea beach.

Last year, the residents, particularly those living close to the sea, were panicked as the sea was behaving strangely and eating out the land mass of the city. This apart, the fear Tsunami is also haunting the locals. The Sankaracharya, as per the provisions in the religious texts, had begun to worship the sea god Barun by offering arati daily to calm the sea.

Since then, every evening the Arati of the sea god was performed and the sea was calmed down, the Adityavahini claimed.
