Relation of Lord Jagganath Temple with Maa Hingulla




Mother Hingula is worshiped as agni ( fire ) in the kitchen of Lord Jagananth at Shree Mandir Puri. Goddess Hingula is worshiped at a distance of 14 from Talcher. She is in the form of fire, another name for cosmic mother. Gopal Prasad is one of the famouse “shakti Pitha”, where each year Goddess Hingula gives Darshan to the devotees in a state of burning fire. It is belived that, Gopal Prsad is the “puja Stahali “, and Shree Jagannath Mandir is her Karmastali . On Sukla Chaturdashi of Chaitra month the Goddess takes leave from Sri mandir kitchen and gives ‘darshan’ to devotees here in form of burning fire.

Before some days of the Chaturdashi, Maa appears near the temple and informs the chief ‘Dehury’ about the location of the burning spot which is kept surrounded with heaps of coal till the yatra.

When Lord Siva had torn apart th body Sati, each 52 pieces that fell on earth is known as ” Sahakti pitha “. A piece identified as Brahmandreya fell at Beluchistan of present Pakistan where shakti appeared in burning fire state. In course of time Nala Raja of Vidraba region of western India has became the devotee Of Maa, who resided in his kingdom. In Puri When Raja decide to start ‘anna prasad’ Lord Jagannath responding to His prayer asked him to bring Hingula to manage his kitchen. Accordingly Puri Raja went to Vidarva and requested him to pray Maa to come to Puri. Nala Raja on the request of Puri Raja brought the Goddess on his wrapper in form of fire and in course of his journey reached at Gopalgarh where he took rest.

The Goddess told Raja in his dream that Gopalgarh will be Her ‘Puja Pitha’ and since 1575 Maa is being worshiped here through the Hingula yatra. Birbar Harichandan was the first king of Talcher who started the festival.
