Subject: Immense Power of Lord Sri Narasimha.
Power of Lord Narasima Swamy is immense and beyond any measure. Those who are in deep troubles, when pray to Lord Narasimha for 42 days rigourously will be releived from any kind of trouble, how ever stong or rigid itmay be will vanish just like a burnt camphor in to the thin air. When on the verge of death, if any should ardently pray to Lord Narasimha will be rescued from the clutches of death and if one recites or hears Lord Narasimha Swamy Raksha Kawacham, will be always protected by the Lord always as as little boy Prahalada was saved..Jaya, Jaya, Jaya Sri Narashima Devaya namaha!
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 – Jagannatha Astakam
Pundit ji suggests that devotees who recite this mantra every morning and evening after taking a bath.
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
jagannathah swami nayana-patha-gami bhavatu me
1. Sometimes in great happiness Lord Jagannatha, with Hisflute, makes a loud concert in the groves on the banks of the Yamuna. He is like a bumblebee who tastes the beautiful lotus-like faces of the cowherd damsels of Vraja, and His lotus feet are worshiped by great personalities such as Lakshmi, Siva, Brahma, Indra and Ganesa. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
