Nagarjuna Besha


Nagarjuna Besha is the adornment of Lord Jagannath in the form of a warrior, Lord Parasurama, who is another incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The besha is done only in those years which have six days in the Panchaka, which has happened only six times in the last 30 years, namely on 26/11/66, 16/11/67, 3/11/68, 26/11/93, 16/11/94 and 3/11/95. The besha is adorned in the month of Kartika, which corresponds with October-November of the English calendar.
