Dear All ,
For a few days , i read about the destructon of jagganth vighraha by kalapahad . From the government of odissa magazine pages on web , this is what i found out that the original deites were burnt by kalapahad . But I later came to know that indeed he became sorry for destroying his own religion .
“But my Lord, the Srikshetra of the past is no more. I have also burnt the images.” said Kalapahad.
Premananda laughed and told, “who is so powereful to destroy the Darubrahma, the supreme being ? He is indestructible, immortal, eternal, without beginning and end. The sanctity of Srikshetra has remained unaffected as it was in the past. Darubrahma Jagannath adorns the bejewelled throne (Ratna Singhasana) of the temple with Balabhadra and Subhadra to fulfill the wishes of the devotees.” Then Premananda disclosed all the events in detail to clear his doubts.He told the incidents starting from his attack on Jagannath temple to installation of the images on the Ratna Singhasana by Ramachandra Dev. Kalapahad got astonished to hear all the matter in detail. The words of Premananda created hope in him and on that very moment he renounced the world. In the morning the next day, the Mughal soldiers without finding him in the camp, searched here and there, but in vain. Kalapahad’s wife Dulari got disheartened without seeing her husband. Later she met him after searching different places. Both of them went on pilgrimage and visited several holy places such as Haridwar, Brundavan, Dwaraka, Rameswar and at last reached at Srikshetra.
I do not hear this incident anywhere . Can anybody please tell me what was the conversation between premanada and kalapahd ? Was the destruction of jagganth temple and the vigrahas aldready predicted in some scripture ? Can somebody please guide me on this .
