King Indradyumna of Avanti had travelled to Purusottama Kshetra with a hope to have a vision of Lord Purusottama (Vishnu). When he arrived there and experienced the sacredness of the place he decided to reside there for the rest of his life worshiping the Lord. Image
He also decided to have a temple built there for the Lord.

Once the king took the decision to start the construction work, he sent for expert astrologers to do ‘the land treatment’ [to make the land ritually pure and fit for the construction of such a temple].
People well versed in the vedas, ministers, wise Brahmins and the experts in the field of Vastu also joined this activity. Soon the religious rituals were duly performed. Then the king Indradyumna sent for the kings of Utkal, Koshal and Kalinga. He urged upon them to go to
Vindhya Mountain to have beautiful stones collected for the construction work. He also told them to take with them some people skilled in cutting stones from the mountain.

Then he ordered his men to send messages to all the kings of the world to come to Purusottama Kshetra with
their armies, courtiers and priests as soon as possible. The order was immediately carried out and lots of kings those who were ruling over far and nearby places, hilly areas and plains, islands and plateaus flocked to the place with their armies, priests and lots of wealth.
The king Indradyumna was pleased to see them gathered at Purusottama Kshetra. “I have decided” said the king politely to the congregation, “to perform in this sacred place an Ashwamedha Yagna and thereafter have a temple built here too.I need your kind cooperation in this regard”
The kings were glad to assist the king in his effort.  They donated lot of things which would be needed during the Yagna and the building of the temple. Some of the things were money, gold, precious stones, pearls, blankets, deer skin, beautiful mattresses, diamonds, elephants,
horses, and several kinds of eatables.

The king was glad to see the collection for the task ahead. When he became sure that the wise men of different kinds such as sages, renunciates, penitents etc had gathered and the ingredients to be used during the Yagna were ready, he asked
his priest to look out for a suitable spot for the Yagna. The priest first sent Brahmins to find a suitable place for the Yagna and then he himself left for the place with some architects. Soon they found a village where the fishermen lived and had a Yagna Shala built there.
Hundreds of palatial rooms were also built around the Yagna Shala. The entire platform where the Yagna was to be performed was decorated with precious stones.The doors to the rooms were really big.The king took great care about the logistics of accommodating the invited royalties
They were offered rice, different kinds of cuisines, sugarcane juice and milk. The most dignified and wise Brahmins got the warm welcome they deserved.

In the meanwhile the king got the message that the construction of platform for the Yagna was complete. The king was thrilled
to hear the news of it. He started with offering meals to Brahmins. Every day when around 1 lakh (one hundred thousand) Brahmins finished eating their meals, trumpets blared like thunder. Thousands of people had gathered and they were from different parts of India. There were
rivers of ghee, milk and curd and they were given to the people present there. The king also donated millions of bulls and cows with gold capped horns and brass milk cans to Brahmins well versed in the Vedas. They also received precious stones, mattresses of deer fur, expensive
clothes and even diamonds. No one starved, no one got less, and no one was dissatisfied. Even gods above were surprised to see the initial success of the Yagna.

And then the king asked his sons to find a most befitting horse for the Yagna and take it around the country.
He announced that the Yagna was going to continue until God appeared.

And finally all his effort bore fruit. After the successful completion of the Yagna he was blessed to have a vision of the Lord. Soon after that he concentrated on having a most beautiful temple built for the
Lord and in due course Sri Jagannath temple came into being.

Brahma Purana

Jai Jagannath

I had a discussion with my Christian friend ( CF )
CF : In one of your tweets you had mentioned about " Karma " , in Christianity we dont have that concept , what do you mean by that
Me : you see we are not this body but Spirit soul , we call it atma
We were there before, we are there now and we will be after, as we change our dress after taking bath, our soul takes another body at death
CF : interesting, We dont beleive in this , just judgement day based on if you believe Jesus or not you will be destined to heaven or hell
Me : you might believe the Sun to be a moon , but the fact is fact, your belief doesn't alter the fact
CF : I don't believe in Karma
Me : Do you accept God
CF : Yes and he is Jesus
Me : What do you think of God , is he Kind or Cruel
CF : How can God be cruel, He is so kind

Story of Ajamila!

A story from Srimad-Bhagavatam.

By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

There was once a young brahmana named Ajamila [pronounced aj-a-meel], who was a reservoir of good character and conduct. He was mild and gentle, always truthful,
well versed in the Vedic scriptures, and very pure.

One day, on the request of his father, Ajamila went to the forest to collect fruit, flowers and grasses. On the way home, he came upon a very lusty low-class man embracing and kissing a prostitute. Both of them were drunk, Image
and the man was smiling, singing and enjoying himself without shame. The prostitute’s eyes were rolling in intoxication, and her dress had become loose. When Ajamila saw her, the lusty desires in his heart awakened, and in illusion he fell under their control.

Let me give an example as to how the hospitals and insurance companies cheat patient's
This PPE kit costs just Rs 550 , A Dr wears this and visits around 100 patients a day. These days Dr address patients only through Video calls. But each patient in the ward is charged Rs 1000 /day towards PPE kit for Doctor. Ie hospital charges

Rs 1000 X 100 patients =Rs 1 lakh
PPE Kit cost Rs 550
Amount collected from all patients / day Rs 100000
If a patient stays in a hospital for 10 days he is charged Rs 1000x 10 = Rs 10000 towards Drs PPE kit alone and this is not covered under insurance

Similar racket for nursing charges

This is daylight robbery

A man by the name of Amrita, living on earth, thought to himself that the one thing he feared most was death.

To avoid death, Amrita practised austerities and concentrated his mind upon Lord Yama, the Lord of Death.

Lord Yama was pleased and granted a vision to Amrita.
Lord Yama said: “My presence is only available to those who are about to die or already dead. Yet I granted you my vision while you are still living, pleased by your penances”.

Amrita said: “I ask this favour of you. If death is inevitable, I ask that if I am to die,
then at least send me a letter before death so that I can make proper provision for my family before departure and also prepere myself for my next life with proper sadhana and worship of Krishna”

Lord Yama said, “Sure, I shall certainly do this. But as soon as you get the
