Sending Vidyapati to locate Sri Purushottama

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 7)

Jagannath temple, Puri, Puri district, OdishaMeditation: I meditate on Lord Jagannatha of Sri Purushottama who is the great Purusha beyond Tamas.

King Indradyumna consulting his priest: Resolving to go to Sri Purushottama, king Indradyumna consulted his priest to find a means to accomplish this. The priest appreciated his idea saying that it is a great fortune to see Madhava in the human birth; Madhava who is the great Purusha beyond Tamas. The priest said that he will endeavour to locate Sri Purushottama with his associates. He will send his younger brother Vidyapati along with the spies who frequently visit many places to locate the holy spot. Vidyapati will visit the Lord of the Universe in the mountain and decide on a piece of land for camping of the king.

Vidyapati starts his journey: On an auspicious hour fixed by astrologers, after performing holy rites, Vidyapati set out with trustworthy associates on a chariot decorated with flowers.
