LORDS OF four dhams & SHRI JAGANNATH

Veda describes the FOUR DHAM- or peetha as they are called- VADRINATH in the north, DWARKA in the west, RAMESWARAM at the south & in east PURI.

THE DEITIES OF THE FIRST THREE HAVE THEIR SPECIFIC IDENTITIES & Gods whom we know from scriptures & purana.

The Lord at BADRINATH is Vishnu-

BADRINATH is surrounded by a rather untidy village and overshadowed by the towering, snow-topped, Nilkantha peak.

THE DEITY AT RAMESHWARAM FOUNDED BY RAMA IS LORD SHIVA-

Rameswaram, according to Hindu mythology, is the place from where Shriram, built the bridge across the sea to lanka to rescue Maa sita.

The lord of the rameshwaram peeth is SHIVA.

SHRI KRISHNA is the lord AT DWARKA- THE KINGDOM ESTABLISHED BY HIM- on the shore of Arabian Sea.

Adi Shankara had visited Dvarakadisha Shrine and had established the Dvaraka Pitha.

Lord Vishnu, LORD SHIVA & Lord Shrikrishna are the deities in these three peethas, whereas the deity of Govardhana Peeth, Puri is LORD JAGANNATH.

WHO IS SHRI JAGANNATH THE PRESIDING DEITY OF THE FOURTH DHAM?

WAS HE A DAIETY ONCE WORSHIPPED BY a devoted TRIBE & subsequently TRANSFERRED INTO A TRADITIONAL SHRINE?

WAS HE A JAIN ICON?

Or WAS HE a BUDDHA creation?

DID HE PRESENT A TANTRIK TRADITION?

OR COULD IT BE THAT HE REPRESENTED THE MISTICISM OF SHUNYAVADA?

HE IS SEEN AS KRISHNA, GANESHA AND RAMA TOO during many occassions during a year.

NO OTHER god has ever evoked SO MANY questions or CONTESTING THEORIES- as Lord Jagannath of puri.
