Bhagabat Jagannath Das : which is considered by many to be the jewel of early Orissan literature. It had a great influence in the standardizing of the Orissan language of Orissa, through its judicious combining of Sanskrit and local words. Its popularity in Orissa is comparable to that of Tulasi Dasâ�� RÃ¤ma-carita-mÃ¤nasa in North India and it is still worshipped in many Orissan homes.
Every Orissan village used to have a small house or room known as bhagavata tungi, where villagers would gather to listen to recitations of Jagannath Dasâ�� Bhagavata. Many of its verses have become proverbial and are cited frequently by people throughout odisha. There are 12 Skanda (Volume), each volume has 10-30 Adhya (Chapters) and each chapter has 50 to 300 stanzas
