King Indradyumna performing thousand horse sacrifices

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 17)

Jagannath temple, Puri, Puri district, OdishaMeditation: I meditate on king Indradyumna performing thousand horse sacrifices to make Lord Jagannatha visible.

Indradyumna performing thousand horse sacrifices: Then the king constructed sacrificial halls and the houses for the guests and invited all the devas and thousand of sages and brahmanas. He made elaborate arrangements for them and extended a grand hospitality. He beseeched the favour of Indra deva to ensure that the sacrifice is completed without obstacles. The devas assured their full support for this work of Madhava. The king started performing the horse sacrifices as per the prescribed rules of the scriptures. Gradually all but the last sacrifice remained to be performed. The king had a vision of Lord Vishnu in the milky ocean. He eulogized the Lord with tears of joy.
