In the Mahabhava Prakash, he very eloquently glorifies the foremost arrival of the Supreme Lord at Sri Ksetra. There, he specifies the exact time at which the Supreme Lord had entered the premises of the Jagannath Mandir.

 

 

na-asa athara sala prabesa hoila
emante bhagya khetrare jahun prabesil

chaitra madhu masa sara benta yatra bele
kisora vayasa yati prabesile kale

sangare achhanti thoke vaisnava mandali
kisora vadanu yoti paduachhi gali

ananda vadane harinama mukhe rati
prabesile khetra madhye saci candra seti

purnacandra rupa yara akapata bhava
danda kamandalu sobha atai svabhaba

kisora samana madhu hasa chahatai
radha radha nama rati sumadhure gai

asile nadia sasi dvadasi tithire
sehudina grurubara ataiti sara

sakale gamile nava yuva darasane darsane
purai prana nayane va mane

dhali dhali srimandire prabesa hoile
haribola sabadare brahmanda kampile

sehi ye gauranga prabhu darasana hela
ye labhiya janamaku sukruta bhajila

aprakata lila mana mukhare vakhani
galeja gauracandra namavali suni

(Mahabhava Prakasa, third vrunta)


Translation: An incredible great fortune started arising as the year 918 sal (1511 A.D) approached. A young sannyasi, being escorted by a group of Vaisnavas, had just made His appearance to Sri Ksetra that too on the occasion of the most famous Benta Yatra (Festival) of Lord Jagannath during the month of Chaitra Madhu.

 

It appeared like as if very bright effulgence was rolling down from His shining youthful face. Thus, while blissfully reciting the Holy Name of Lord Hari, the moon of Saci entered into the Ksetra; His form appeared just like full moon and his mood was absolutely without duplicity.

 

The revelation of His sober nature appeared in conformity with the beauty of the danda (staff) and kamandalu (water pot). Like an innocent child a sweet smile emanated from His face, as he kept engaging melodiously in singing the Name of Radha-Radha. The moon of Nadia thus appeared on the dvadasi tithi, which happened to be the Thursday.

 

The life, vision and mind of all the citizens were completely filled up in ecstasy after taking the darsana of this wonderful new youth. Then in a tilted way of walking, the young sannyasi entered into the Sri Mandir while the entire universe was being resounded with the holy Haribol. In that way, who ever had the fortune to take the darsana of that Lord, attained the supreme success of his birth and as a consequence had gone back home, back to Godhead, upon hearing the unmanifested pastime and the Holy Name that emanated from the sacred mouth of Lord Gauracandra.
