Carving of the idol of Purushottama

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 19)

Jagannath temple, Puri, Puri district, OdishaMeditation: I meditate on the divine idols of Jagannatha, Balarama and Subhadra.

Carving of the idol of Purushottama: Sri Vishnu assumed the form of an old carpenter and started carving the idol of the Lord. During this work divine fragrance, divine music and shower of parijata flowers took place. After the work was over, an ethereal voice gave instructions about how the idols should be painted and decorated. When the king unveiled the altar he saw the divine idols of Krishna (Jagannatha), Balarama and Subhadra. The king was immersed in a joy of bliss and stood there motionless. All his exertions had finally became fruitful. The king eulogized the Lord and prostrated before Him. Sage Narada and other sages also eulogized the Lord.
