Jagannath Puri, Orissa...
On the way to Jagannath Puri (in today's Orissa), Neelkanth stayed at Jairamdas's residence. When Neelkanth left, Jairam found Neelkanth again in Jagannath Puri.
In Jagannath Puri, Neelkanth accepted the devotion of King Rajaram Mukunddev Pundit, the Governor of Orissa. Jagannath Puri is famous for the Rath Yatra festival where the moortis of Lord Krishna (Jagannath), Balaram (Baldev), and Subhadra are paraded on chariots. On June 26, 1797 (Ashadh sud 2), the king had Neelkanth sit on a chariot as well.
In Janakpur, Neelkanth displayed His compassionate nature and would not pluck vegetables at the behest of negative ascetics who destroyed themselves [ref. Vachanamrut Gadhada Middle 60]. After over half a year at Jagannath Puri, Neelkanth traveled through Tilang (Andhra Pradesh).
At Manaspur, Neelkanth warded off negative ascetics from King Satradharma's kingdom. After this, Jairam returned home - after an illness in Purushottam Puri, Jairam met Neelkanth in Loj and was later initiated as Jignasanand Swami.
Neelkanth graced Venkatachal (or Tirupati, the home of Lord Vanketeshwar) and continued South.
