I shall meditate upon Lord Jagannatha who is worshiped by Deva/deities, Dhanavas/demons, Gandharva/celestial Apsaras and singers, Yaksha, Vidhyadhara and Uraga, he has pleasing disposition and has the effulgence of thousands and millions of Lord Surya,  I shall meditate upon supreme Lord Narayana, who is the provider of Chathurvargaphala such as Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha to the worshiper, Victory to Lord Krishna ! Victory to Lord Jagannatha, and Victory to supreme Lord who is primeval, Victory to Shesha, Victory to supreme Lord who is worshiped by the whole Universe, I shall prostrate before the lotus feet of Lord Jagannatha.

Bheeshma speaks “ Oh! Yudhishtira, Oh! Mahabhaho who has powerful arms, I shall narrate the splendor and sacred names of Jagannatha which is highly propitious, carefully listen to them.  The living and nonliving beings all those were created by Bhrama dwells in the world of Samsara are soaked in illusion, even the Bhrama, Dhikpalas and deities are definitely besieged by delusion, hence the Bhramanda appeared into various regions, all those living beings were created either with kindness or self-interest, and it was caused by Lord Jagannatha who symbolizes absolute truth and righteousness.  Oh! Anagha/sinless, I shall narrate the thousands of sacred names of Lord Jagannatha for you.”
