Song Name: Jaya Jaya Jagannatha Sacira
By: Vasudeva Ghosa


jaya jaya jagannātha sacīra nandan 
tribhūvana kore jār caraṇa vandan


nilācale sańkha-cakra-gadā-padma-dhar 
nadīyā nagare daṇḍa-kamaṇḍalu-kar


keho bole purabete rāvaṇa badhilā
goloker vaibhava lilā prakāśa korilā


śri-rādhār bhāve ebe gorā avatār 
hare kṛṣṇa nām gaura korilā pracār


vāsudeva ghoṣa bole kori joḍa hāt 
jei gaura sei kṛṣṇa sei jagannāth


All glories, all glories to the dear son of Jagannatha Misra and Saci Devi! All the three worlds offer prayers unto His lotus feet.

In Nilacala He holds the conch shell, disc, club, and lotus flower, while in the town of Nadiya He holds a sannyasi staff and water pot.

It is said that in olden times, as Lord Ramacandra, He killed the demon Ravana. Then later, as Lord Krsna, He revealed the splendrously opulent pastimes of Goloka.

It is He who has come. He has come! Oh, from Vraja He has come to Nadiya. Accepting the mood and luster of Sri Radha, He has come from Vraja to Nadiya. He has come! Now Lord Govinda, the cowherd boy, has come as Lord Gauranga. He has come distributing the Hare Krsna Mahamantra!

Vasudeva Ghosa says with folded hands, “He who is Gaura is He who is Krishna is He who is Jagannatha.”

Pada Seva

Pada Seva is a blog of ISKCON Dumdum and is maintained by the ISKCON Dumdum congregational devotees.

Pada-Sevanam means to serve the lotus feet of the Lord and His devotees. It is one of the nine different processes of executing Krishna consciousness. This website is an offering from us to Srila Prabhupada in the same mood of Pada Sevanam, hence the name.
