Published on Apr 20, 2014

Adi Shankaracharya has written a song “Kadacit Kalindi Tata Vipina” and the Official Name for this song is “Sri Sri Jagannathastakam”. This astakam glorifies Jagannath who resides with his brother Baladeva and Subhadra in Nilacala Hill. Jagannatha means “Lord of the universe”. He is the ocean of mercy and even the demigods worship His lotus feet. He is the most merciful form of Shri Krishna and who ever approaches Him with faith and devotion will fulfill their desires and their sins will get destroyed.
