Joranda Festival is one of the famous festivals held annually at Joranda, Dhenkanal district, Odisha on the full moon day of Hindu calendar month of Magha (Magha Purnima) which falls in the month January or February. Joranda is the centre of the Mahima dharma. The followers of mahima dharma worship him as Sunya Brahma or the shapeless lord. Mahima dharma originated in such a manner in which there were no critical rituals of the Brahmanism. It also does not believe in caste & creed. It believes that the Alekh the inscribable absolute is the only creator of the Universe. A huge number of Mahima Sanyasis (ascetics), devotees, monks, and pilgrims take part in Joranda Mela to worship Mahima Gosain's Samadhi Pitha (shrine) in Sunya Mandir (temple). A Havan or Yagya is held in 'Yagna Kund' as a part of Jorand Mela. The Sadhus worship their supreme sadhus (who wear only lean tree bark on their lower part) at their monastery and offer holy fire. Atmosphere reverbs with the sound of 'Alekh Brahma' by devotees in rhythmic tone Prayers are made to bring harmony upon earth.It is only a mass prayer of monks for the welfare of the world, which goes for spreading the message of love and humanity in the name of Mahima Gosain, the founder of Mahima Dharma.
