Read the previous post on Temple Song.


At night after the BadaSinghara Bhesh when the Badasinghara Bhog is brought and placed inside the sanctum and when three Pujapanda’s servitors to offer the bhog in Pancha upchar rituals took their place and when everything is set and when they start the puja inside the Garbha griha of Jagannatha Temple then the attendants of Bada chata matha along with some devotees began to sing some unique songs in a very beautiful tune at the Jaya Vijay Dwar of the temple, so the first song which is sung during the bhog is “Sukha nidhi Raghu bara”.

Sukha Nidhi Raghu Bara

Sukhanidhi Raghubara karata Bihari ll sukhanidhi raghubara..
Maadhu meewa pakabana sarasa he premasahite parase mahitari ll

Following songs are being sung when the Ratnapalanka are being taken and placed 
in front of the deities:
As the last song of the day in Jagannatha Temple, when everything is set and when the deities are about to retire on the ratnapalanka(bejeweled beds) as a part of the mabaniya leela and the last rites of Sri Mandir for every following days. Then a secret idol moves from bhandar ghar to Ratnasinghasan and there after getting a aagyamala as a token of permission from Jagannatha. when the idols is brought and placed near the Jaya Vijay Dwar then ‘Purushottama Prabhu’ song is being sung.

  1. Hmmm. That’s interesting. It’s just now that I’ve learned this.
    We also sing songs to our God. My favorite one is this:
    “ I come to you, Lord
    Time and time again
    Needing answers
    To questions I don’t understand

    But today Lord, I come to you
    Asking nothing in return
    I wanna love you
    Just let me love you

    Let me love you with my worship
    And praise you with my song
    I give all the glory to you
    To you and you alone

    For this is my heart’s desire
    And will be from now on
    Let me love you with my worship
    And praiseyou with my song”

    🙂 I think thetitleisLet Me LoveYou With My Worship
