One who listens or reads to the sacred and auspicious chapter of “Samudra manthan & Hala hala ghattam” from Sri Bhagawatam will be rescued from any possible snake bites, scorpion bites & fire hazards that they are destined to.
LORD JAGANNATH & RATHA YATRA – Lord Jagannath Temple:
In Puri, Lord Jagannath is worshipped with his elder brother Bala-Rama (Also known as Balabhadra) and His Younger sister Subhadra and Goddess Maha Lakshmi in Sri Mandir. Jagannath is another name of Lord Krishna, is an avatar (Incarnation) of the
Lord Vishnu,who is the presiding deity of Puri – the coastal town of Orissa in eastern India. The word ‘Puri’ originates from the word ‘Jagannatha Puri’ which means place which belongs to the Lord Jagannatha. Puri Jaganatha is also one from among 108 ‘Sri Vaishnava Divya Desam’ (Or sacred, holy Vaishnava prilgrim places). Rath Yatra is of great significance to all the Hindus, and especially to the people of Orissa. It is during this time that the three deities of Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra are taken out in a grand procession in specially constructed, gigantic temple-like chariots called ‘raths’.
It is customary of the Hindu culture to take out the Temple Deities in a procession on special chariots on special holy days in all the Hindu Temples all over the world since time immemorial. But the ‘Ratha Yatra” of Puri Jagannath is a rare, special and very unique one. Each of these grand and very huge Rathas (chariots) have different specifications:
The chariot of Lord Jagannath is called ‘Nandighosa’ – has 18 wheels and is 23 cubits in height. Jagannatha’s ratha is marked with a cakra and garuda, is yellow in color, with four white horses. The protecting deity is Nrsimha.
|Chant of the Month – Jagannathastakam
Pundit ji suggests that devotees who recite this mantra every morning after taking a bath.
Lord Jagannath is a form of Vishnu. His name means “lord of the the universe.”
This beautiful, simple and yet most appealing hymn requesting Lord Jagannath (Lord of the universe) to make Himself visible was composed by Jagat Guru Sri Adi Shankaracharya. It was he who has made Lord Jagannath’s temple at Puri as one of the four dhams (char dham) or holy places which every Hindu must visit during his lifetime. In this beautiful hymn, Jagat Guru Sri Adi Shankaracharya positions himself as a devotee in the second line of every verse in which he makes this humble request to the Lord.
He who recites this Jagannatha Ashtakam daily during this month of Jagannatha Ratha Yatra. His/her problems will be resolved, hence will attain peace, happiness and they will be on the path to attain salvation.
Shri Jagannatha Ashtakam
