Puri Jagannath Temple Murtis - Anthropological Representation of Four Major Human Races of the World

Vedic Science Research Center of Berhampur in Orissa has come up with a theory that the four important deities – Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshan Chakra – worshiped in the Puri Jagannath temple are anthropological representation of four major human races of the world. The Hindu reports Senior life science scientist Sachidananda Padhi, who is attached with this organisation and researches on ancient scientific studies in India , said the four deities worshipped in the Sri Jagannath temple in Puri do not have resemblance with any idols worshipped in any other temple in the country. These deities do not have resemblance with any god of Indian mythology. “They are nothing but metaphorical representation of four major human races in the world,” Mr. Padhi said.  According to him Prof. Padhi, the four major human races are Negroids, Caucasoids, Mangoloids and Australoids. “The unique colorations of deities of Puri represent these human races,” Prof. Padhi said.
