Jayapataka Swami: Usually Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra are worshipped together. In Jagannath Puri there is a Deity of Jagannath alone at the Simhadvar, called Patita Pavana Jagannath, that He gives mercy to the fallen souls. Maybe everyone that has a solo Jagannath has also the Patita Pavana Form. I haven’t heard anything in particular, but we see in Jagannath Puri, at the doorway, they have a single Jagannath and they call Him Patita Pavana. Hare Krsna.
