Jammu (J&K), August 12, 2020 - Devotees across the country can now get ‘prasad’ from Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine in J&K delivered through Speed Post. Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine atop Trikuta hills reopened on August 16 after remaining closed for over five months due to the Covid19 pandemic.
Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) entered into an agreement with the department of posts for the speedy delivery of prasad to devotees across the country, the board said in a statement here.
For facilitating devotees, especially during the prevailing circumstances, SMVDSB introduced the facility of delivery of prasad at their places.
This initiative of SMVDSB will greatly help those devotees avail the prasad who can not undertake the yatra due to circumstances because of pandemic.
Three categories of prasad have been launched by SMVDSB on a no profit no loss basis, which can be booked either through the official website (https://www.maavaishnodevi.org/) of the board or through telephonic mode on the dedicated mobile number (9906019475).
Earlier, the Shrine Board had offered a facility for devotees to perform ‘Hawan’ or ‘Puja’, in absentia, at the Yagya Shala at Bhawan.
The board, meanwhile, said the yatra to the holy shrine is picking pace with every passing day.
Supplementary facilities like helicopter, battery operated vehicles and passenger ropeway between Bhawan and Bhairon have also been pressed into service for pilgrims.
