Jagannath, in pronunciation itself creates the realization of Super Being or Brahma in our Thoughts, Beliefs and actions. It is as pure as Ganga, as bright as Sun and as cool as moon. It is the name where truth, virtues and knowledge are together and establishes its vastness in the world. The rishis and scholars are meditating thousand years for search of truth, the super being, manifestation of Brahma inside the body, and interconnectedness of Brahma with the world. Parambrahma is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, omni-benevolent. His presence in this earth is to bless the whole humanity with love, happiness and peace. 


Jagannath Dham, the Dham (place of God) gives feelings of presence of God and attracts lacs of Devotees every Day for Darshan. A glance of Darshan is fills the hearts with Jagannat thoughts and enlightens souls with Jagannath consciousness.  Thousands of rishis, the scholars are meditating in and around that Dham to feel the interconnectedness with Parambrahma and to enlighten the devotees with the knowledge of Brahma. 


Jagannath comes out of his temple with his brother (Balabhadra) and sister (Subhadra) every year on the Day of Rath Yatra (Car Festival) for gratifying all the devotees praying him whole through the years and bless them. This energy enlightens the soul and creates the spiritual consciousness for creation of spiritual assets like Being Charitable for All, Being Compassionate for sufferings, being kind for all, spreading hopes, practicing humility, tolerance and appreciation, expressing gratitude and forgiveness. 


When Chariots run in Bada Danda, strings not only pull the chariots ahead, but pull all the devotees present towards Lord Jagannath, the heavenly consciousness.  All devotees are completely detached from their actions and material thoughts, the hearts are full of Bhakti, the devotion for Parambrahma, there is no difference among them, all of them feel connected to that energy which flows from the Super being and binds all. For few moments, all of them feel that power, that energy and realize the God inside themselves. The feelings of satisfaction, the gratification fills the Dham with natural consciousness, free from all worldly attachments, desires and aspirations. Just feel fullness inside him or her. 


When Chariots reach in front of ‘Mausima Temple’, just all devotees feel like spiritual chariots, which were running not only on the road, but also inside each and every person and connecting the mind and soul have reached in their destination, met with the Brahma, and wants to go through that feelings again and again, so calm, so peaceful, so satisfying, so enlightening ….


Param Brahma Parameswara Bless All……

    The internal theme of the epic denotes there is no specific space for Almighty; nor nothing can tie such pious spirit. Very appropriately said, "IT IS OMNIPOTENT". Appreciated narration Madam.

    The Puri Temple is one of the four abodes or chardham. There have been several devotees of Lord Jagannath, but the one who stands out was Salabega. In one of his poems he beautifully describes the Rath Yatra and the connectivity between God and His devotees. It was nice reading this blog when the Rath Yatra was in progress to find and realise those invisible strings between us and the Lord. Those strings remind us our responsibilities as human beings to this society as well as gives us courage to face any challenge that comes on our way.
