Lord Jagannath : The Lord of his disciples

History is witness of the love of Lord Jagannath & has disciples.Lord jagannath has extended his hand to receive the coconut sent by Dasia Bauri.

How One Devotee helps to another Devotee for Lord Jagannath’s Darshan !

While Lord Chaitanya was at Lord Jagannath temple to see the deity of Jagannath,thousands of disciples were in front of him who were also seeing the deity.All of a sudden , a woman who was unable to see Jagannath through the crowd, climbed the column of Garuda that was just in front of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, placing her foot on His shoulder to get up.Govinda, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s personal secretary, hastily got her down.

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, however, chastised Govinda for this.When the woman came to her senses, she begged for forgiveness at the lotus feet of Lord Chaitanya.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said, “Lord Jagannath has not bestowed so much eagerness upon Me.She has fully absorbed her body, mind and life in Lord Jagannath.Therefore she was unaware that she was putting her foot on My shoulder.
Alas! How fortunate this woman is! I pray at her feet that she favor Me with her great eagerness to see Lord Jagannath.”

– Excerpt from Chaitanya-charitamrita, Antya-lila 14.28-30

” Naaham teesthaami vaikunthe, yoginaam hridaye na cha Madbhaktaa yatra dhyaayanti tatra teesthaami naarada-
Neither have I stayed in the heaven nor even in the heart of saints. I reside in that place where my devotees pray / worship. “
