Sri Jagannath Ashtakam by Swarupa Damodara Prabhu
Shri Jagannath Ashtakam: Jagannatha means "Lord of the universe." Many Vedic books mention that Jagannatha is Krishna. Although Krishna is absolute and transcendental to material nature, to accept the loving service of His devotees He appears before us as the deity in the temple, in the form of stone, metal, wood, or paint. Jagannatha is a wooden form of Krishna.
