Puri (Surjit Kumar Dhal): He is devotee lover Mahaprabhu. In his devotion, the whole universe is mad. Kalia Saanta is a living example of emotion, devotion and passion. The trio- Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Debi Subhadra called as the living trinity of the universe. So Shri Jagannath, the lord of the world, plays human ‘leela’ during this Kali Yuga. The Ratha Jatra, which is based on another tradition of this human play, ended yesterday. Despite the heavy rains, Mahabahu has given the servitors the strength to complete His miraculous Bahuda journey smoothly.
Last year, the Supreme Court ordered the Ratha Jatra to be observed with limited servitors. The order was no less punishment for the Jagannath devotees across the world. But all the Jagannath lovers cooperated with the administration by placing stones on their chests to maintain the tradition of their God of heart. However, this was a test for the temple administration and the chief administrator. What type of test this was of the Almighty? Krishan Kumar, the chief administrator of the shrine, did not understand this. He took refuge at the feet of the Lord. So keeping the devotees in mind, the Lord helped to finish the Ratha Yatra smoothly last year.
The situation was similar this year also. Krishan Kumar had full faith in Mahaprabhu Jagannath. So this year also, ,Jagannath has helped the administration. After a nine-day stay at the Gundicha temple, Kala Saanta returned to the ‘Bada Danda’ with his siblings. But on the way of Bahuda, a black cloud suddenly appeared in the sky. The heavy rains were soaked. However, by the grace of Mahabahu bestowed the servitors with power. The four idols reached at the ‘Singha Dwara’.
Servitors and the Chief Administrator of Srimandir had been able to make the Ratha Jatra a success without devotees. Krishan Kumar was walking barefoot with a towel on his head and a mask on his face. Innumerable obstacles came, but his love in Jagannath completed all rituals smoothly. Gita Govinda was sung continuously along with the servitors. Jagannath may have been aware of his devotion. That is why for the last two years, despite the corona restrictions all the rites of the Rath Yatra could be carried out in a timely and accurate manner. Krishan Kumar has been lauded from various quarters for this.
