Jagannatha Dasa Bhagabata – Oriya Version of Srimad Bhagavad Puran

Jagannatha Dasa Bhagabata is a classic text in Oriya which contains ethical principles, philosophical ideas and spiritual values. This Oriya version of Srimad Bhagavad Puran was completed during the 16th century AD and is credited to Jagannatha Dasa.

The original version contains eleven volumes or Skandas. There is a 12th and 13th chapter which many believe was composed by some other poet.

From the arrangement of the theme in Jagannatha Dasa Bhagabata, the eleventh volume appears to be the last because it describes the departure of Bhagavan Sri Krishna from earth.
Jagannatha Dasa Bhagabata contains 329 chapters. The author has deviated from the original text in several ways.

Love can only be true if there is no ego hiding behind it – Osho

Love never hurts anybody. And if you feel you have been hurt by love, it is something else in you, not your loving quality, that feels hurt.

Love as people ordinarily use the word is not love; it is lust. And lust is bound to cause hurt, because to desire somebody as an object is to offend that person. It is an insult, it is violent.

Love is respecting the other as an end unto himself or herself. When you love someone as an end unto himself, then there is no feeling of hurt; you become enriched through it. Love makes everybody rich.

Love can only be true if there is no ego hiding behind it; otherwise love becomes only an ego trip. – Osho
