The Nanda-Raj-Jat is a religious procession undertaken by Uttarakhandi Hindus once in 12 years to honor Goddess Nanda, Lord Shiva's consort. A four-horned ram (male sheep) is born in the region, which is understood to be chosen by the Goddess. This ram is located, cared for and later released in the Himalayas with all the honor that is due to a daughter being married.
The Raj Jat is currently underway. It began on 17th August 2014 and will conclude on 6th September, 2014.
The procession starts at Nauti Village near Karnaprayag in Garhwal, Uttarakhand, and ends at Roopkund and Hemkund. The procession winds through 290 km of hilly terrain and takes lot of strength and devotion. The goddesses Nanda and Sunanda are sisters who are considered to live on two mountains that carry their names.
May all devotees of Mata Rani Nanda Bhagwati the ishta devi of Uttarkhandis bless all her devotees!
Jai Bhagwati Nanda! Jai Mata Di!
