March 27; 2013. Festival of Jagannath misra.


The Festival of Jagannath Mishra is an observance of the Jata karma samskara for baby Nimai (Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu). Following the fast for Gaura Purnima, which is broken upon the rising of the moon, the next day is held for feasting. On Jagannath Mishra festival day, the devotees meditate upon the Jata karman ceremony. The festival is also known as Anandotsava amongst the Gaudiya Matha devotees.

Jagannath Mishra was born in the village of South Dhaka in Sylhet (Sylhet). His grandfather, Madhu Mishra, had four sons: Upendra, Rangada, Kirtida, and Kirtivasa. His father and mother, Upendra Mishra and Kalavati, had seven sons: Kamsari, Paramananda, Padmanabha, Sarveshvara, Jagannath Mishra, Janardana and Trailokyanath. (Prema-vilasa, 24). According to the Gaura-ganoddesha-dipika, Upendra was Krishna's grandfather, the cowherd Parjanya, while Jagannath was Nanda Maharaj in Krishna's Vraja pastimes (Gaura-ganoddesha-dipika 37). Nanda or Jagannath were, in Krishna's various appearances, Kashyapa, Dasharath, Sutapa and Vasudeva.

The king of Vraja has become Chaitanya's father, Jagannath; the queen of Vraja is his mother Sachi. The son of Nanda is Chaitanya Gosai, and Baladeva is his brother Nityananda.
(Chaitanya Charitamrita 1.17.294-295).

En la ejecución del Jata Karma samskara para el bebé Nimai (Sri Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu). En terminos generales lo que ocurre es que el día de Gaura Purnima todo el mundo ayuna de granos hasta la noche, hasta que la luna llena se eleva, en conmemoración de la aparición del Señor.

Entre los Gaudiyas vaisnavas este festival que se denomina Anandotsava de Sri Jaganatha Mishra, celebra la fiesta del advenimiento, al igual que el día despúes de la aparición del Señor Krishna también tenemos el Nandotsava de Nanda Maharaj.
