jagganath being a vishnu avatar, but in this concocted phrase is slang for masturbation. It means to take ones pleasures into his own hands. mostly when its substitute for not getting any action from the opposite sex (or same sex if thats how you swing).

Usage

gugu: are you getting subhalakshmi over to your place?
gubbe: Nahi yaar, today apna hath jagannath... sigh
gugu: bad luck.

Actually the phrase means to be reliant on one's own hands - not on others. In this case as the act is performed by one's own hand, hence the usage.

Usage

Saale, loundiya nahi mili to kya hua,apna haath jagganath to hai na!

(Saala, didn't get any ass, so apna haath jagganath, right?)
