Comments on Srī Srī Jagannātha, Baladeva & Subhadrā

Comments: On Lord Jagannātha
Shrī Jagannātha is the "Immovable Lord of the Universe." He is a primal expansion of Lord Vishnu, second in the Vedic Trinity of Brahma (Creator) Vishnu (Sustainer) and Shiva (Transformer) and, for at least the past five thousand years, is greatly beloved throughout the Indian subcontinent. The fourth of India's four holiest temples is dedicated to Him (jagannath Puri). Now, thanks in part to the universal awakening of eclectic universalism in its many forms, His popularity is quickly expanding throughout the entire world.
 Verses in praise of Lord Baladeva
"O Kesava! O Lord of the Universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of Lord Balarāma, the wielder of the plow! All glories to You! On Your brilliant white body You wear garments the color of a fresh blue rain cloud. These garments are the color of the River Yamuna, who feels great fear due to the striking of Your plowshare."

"All glories to Rama-ghata, where Lord Balarāma performed His rasa dance. All glories to Lord Balarāma, the son of Rohini. All glories, all glories to the residents of Vrndavana."

"Powerful Lord Balarāma is sixteen years old, full of the luster of youth and has a fair complexion the color of crystal. Balarāma wears blue garments and a garland of forest flowers. Balarāma's handsome hair is tied in a graceful topknot. Splendid earrings adorn Balarāma's ears. Srī Baladeva's neck is splendidly decorated with garlands of flowers and strings of jewels. Splendid armlets and bracelets ornament Douji's graceful and very strong arms. Balarāma's feet are decorated with splendid jeweled anklets. Srī Baladeva is Srī Krishna's dearest friend. Baladeva is a great reservoir of the nectar mellows of many kinds of transcendental pastimes."

"Lord Balarāma's beauty is enhanced by the earrings touching His cheeks. Balarāma's face is decorated with tilaka made from musk, and Balarāma's broad chest is ornamented with a garland of gunja. Srī Baladeva's complexion is as white as an autumn cloud, and He wears blue garments. Balarāma's voice is very grave and His arms are very long, touching His thighs."

"The splendor of Lord Balarāma's transcendental form eclipses many millions of glistening rising moons, and the slightest scent of His boundless strength is sufficient to destroy many armies of demons. Although He knows the supernatural power of His younger brother, Krishna, still, out of love for Him, Balarāma never leaves Krishna alone in the forest even for a moment. I offer my prayers to Lord Balarāma, the enemy of Dhenukasura."

"The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is the fountainhead of all incarnations. Lord Balarāma is His second body. They are both one and the same identity. They differ only in form. He is the first bodily expansion of Krishna, and He assists in Lord Krishna's transcendental pastimes.

That original Lord Krishna appeared in Navadvipa as Lord Caitanya, and Balarāma appeared with Him as Lord Nityānanda.

May Srī Nityānanda Rama be the object of my constant remembrance. Sankarsana, Sesa Naga and the Visnus who lie on the Karana Ocean, Garbha Ocean and ocean of milk are His plenary portions and the portions of His plenary portions.

Lord Balarāma is the original Sankarsana. He assumes five other forms to serve Lord Krishna. He Himself helps in the pastimes of Lord Krishna, and He does the work of creation in four other forms. He executes the orders of Lord Krishna in the work of creation, and in the form of Lord Sesa He serves Krishna in various ways. In all the forms He tastes the transcendental bliss of serving Krishna.

That same Balarāma is Lord Nityānanda, the companion of Lord Gaurasundara."
