4 Story Of Bhakta Kabi Jayadeva on Lord Jagannath- Kabi Jayadeva’s birthday on Akshyaya Trutiya near Prachi River Kenduli , #Odisha #Jagannath #Puri
Jayadeva was a Sanskrit poet circa 1200 AD. He is most known for his composition, the epic poem Gita Govinda, which depicts the divine love of Krishna, and his consort, Radha. This poem, which presents the view that Radha is greater than Hari, is considered an important text in the Bhakti movement of Hinduism.
Sri Jayadev was born on the auspicious day of Akshaya Trutiya from Sri Bhojadeva and Smt. Bamadevi in Kenduli village surrounded by Kendu & Bilwa trees, situated near Prachi Valley of Puri District. Like Bhakta-Kabi Jagannath Dash’s “Bhagabata”, Sri Jayadev’s Geeta Govinda (composed in the second half of the 12th century A.D.) was spread due to its rhythmic musical excellence which was so dear to Sri Jagannath.
