Rath Yatra 2024 Who is Devi Bimla Lord Jagannath Does Not Eat His Prasad Without Offering It To Her

Jagannath Rath Yatra 2024: The temple of Lord Jagannath located in Puri, Odisha is one of the four holy Dhams of Hindus. It is said that the heart of Lord Krishna beats in the idol of Lord Jagannath. Although Lord Krishna is seen with Radha ji everywhere, but here Lord Jagannath is seated with his sister Subhadra and elder brother Balram.

Puri is said to be a place that gives salvation. In Puri, there is a deep relation between Lord Jagannath and Goddess Bimla. It is believed that Lord Jagannath does not taste the Prasad unless it is offered to the Goddess. Know who is Goddess Bimla of Puri.

Who is Goddess Vimala of Puri?

    • In Puri, Goddess Vimala is worshipped like Lord Jagannath.
    • Goddess Vimala is considered to be the Adishakti (Maa Parvati) form of Mata Sati, who is also the sister of Lord Vishnu.
    • According to mythological beliefs, Goddess Vimala is the presiding deity of Jagannath Puri.
    • There is a Bimala Shakti Peeth in the temple premises. Lord Jagannath consumes the holy bhog offered to him only after it is offered to Goddess Vimala.

Why is Goddess Bimla offered food before Lord Jagannath?

The offering to Lord Jagannath is considered to be the most special among all the holy places. Due to the belief that Lord Vishnu ate food in Puri, the ‘Mahabhog’ Mahaprasad’ here is very famous. There is a popular story about this Mahabhog. Goddess Lakshmi herself used to prepare the offering to Lord Jagannath i.e. Lord Vishnu.

Sage Narad made many efforts to taste this Mahabhog, finally he got the opportunity to taste Mahabhog due to the boon given by Goddess Lakshmi but Goddess Lakshmi had told him to keep the matter of tasting Mahabhog to himself only.

Narada ji revealed the secret of Mahabhog

Devarshi Narad took some prasad with him and left from there. All the gods including Mahadev, Yamraj, Indra were present for a meeting on Kailash. Devarshi Narad also reached there. By mistake, he said that he tasted the Mahabhog of Jagannath ji, in such a situation Mahadev also enjoyed that prasad. Bholenath became happy after taking the prasad and started doing Tandava. Kailash started shaking, Devi Parvati asked the reason for Shiva’s happiness, then she also came to know about the Mahaprasad.

Goddess Parvati also expressed her desire to taste the Prasad from Shiv Ji but the Prasad was over. Parvati Ji got angry at this and said that you have tasted the Prasad alone. Now the whole world will get this Prasad. The angry Goddess Parvati reached her brother’s house Jagannath Dham with Shiv Ji and said to Lakshmi Ji, brother, I have come to my mother’s house after so many days, won’t you feed me? Jagannath Ji understood the whole matter. Goddess Parvati said in anger that why have you limited the Mahabhog to yourself only?

Bimala Shaktipeeth in Jagannath ji

Lord Vishnu said to Jagannath that by having the prasad of the food prepared by Goddess Lakshmi, everyone could have deviated from the principle of karma, in this way the balance of sin and virtue would have been disturbed, that is why I had kept it limited, but now that you say so, I am making it public from today itself. From now on, whatever Mahabhog is prepared for Jagannath, it will be offered to you first and only after that I will consume it. Goddess, you love your devotees and children with pure feelings, that is why from today you will also reside in Jagannath Dham in the name of Goddess Bimla.
