The Restoration of National Pride: The Pran Pratishtha of Shri Ramlala - By Dr. Mohan Yadav

राम राज बैठें त्रैलोका। हरषित भए गए सब सोका।।
Today is a sacred occasion of good fortune. After hundreds of years, this auspicious moment has come...Ramlala is being enthroned in his birthplace in Ayodhya. The entire world of Sanatanis are happy, joyful and cheerful. Jai Shree Ram is resounding throughout the world. We are all fortunate that we have got the opportunity to see this pleasant sight. For the construction of a temple befitting the dignity of Shri Ramlala, generations have struggled for five hundred years, in which countless sacrifices have been made.

Ram Mandir is a symbol of our culture, our faith, nationalism and collective power. It is the result of the determination, struggle and will to live of the Sanatana society that today, under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, the dream of building Shri Ram Mandir is coming true. It is an occasion of excitement and celebration, the entire society is celebrating with joy.

King Ram is the ideal of every Indian and the Sanatanis spread throughout the world. He is the embodiment of truthfulness, good conduct and the ideal man, the Maryada Purushottam. Along with the enthusiasm of the construction of the Shri Ram Janmsthan temple, we should also take inspiration from the life of Lord Ram. The greatest characteristic of the personality of Shri Ram, who is committed to the path of duty, is that he was for everyone and took everyone along. He would even sacrifice his happiness to gain everyone's trust. He was as brave, intelligent and as tolerant as he was. He never compromised with principles and adverse circumstances could never distract him.

For the benevolent king Ram, justice and Rajdharma were paramount. It is because of these amazing characteristics that Shri Ram is called the ideal king. In his rule, there was no one small or big, everyone was worthy of equal respect. Everyone got job opportunities according to their ability, capacity and intelligence. Ramrajya is cited as an example for a society without discrimination.

The mention of the pleasant condition of the people in Ramrajya is mentioned in the Uttarkanda of Ramcharitmanas - "Daihik Daivik Bhautiki Tapa, Ram Raj Nahin Kahuhi Vyapa."

That is, in the reign of Ramrajya, the governance system was so ideal that the people were prosperous, disease-free and disaster-free.

For the cultural unity of the nation, Shri Ram ji linked the entire India from north to south and east to west with a single thread. He did not come directly to Ayodhya after completing his forest exile from Lanka. He went to all those places that were his forest migration route. When returning, he brought all the major brothers of the Nishad, Kirat, Kevat and forest society with him. In his reign, Shri Ramji earned the trust of one-by-one person and organized them. His whole life was dedicated to the nation and society. We have to build such a nation.

After a long wait and patience of almost five hundred years, Ramlala is coming to Ayodhya with his former prestige. This is a celebration of progress and tradition. It has the grandeur of development and the divinity of heritage. This grandeur and divinity will lead us on the path of progress. It is the result of the determination of Honorable Prime Minister Ji with the struggle and self-power of the society that Ramlala is enthroned today. Prime Minister Ji has urged the countrymen that "When Lord Rama is enthroned in Ayodhya, then light Shri Ram Jyoti in every house, celebrate Diwali." On the occasion of the Pran-Pratishta of Ramlala, we have prepared to light lamps and diyas in the cities and villages of the state. Sri Ram Katha Week is being celebrated in all gram panchayats of the state.

Honorable Prime Minister Ji has called for a cleanliness campaign for a week in all temples and pilgrimage sites across the country to mark the construction of the magnificent Ram temple. We have launched a cleanliness campaign in all pilgrimage sites, temples and rivers in Madhya Pradesh for health from cleanliness and prosperity from health. Lord Shri Ram spent about 11 years of his forest exile in Chitrakoot. We have decided to develop 23 major religious places of 1450 kilometers of Ramvan Path Gyan Marg including the pilgrimage site Chitrakoot. This will include infrastructure development works as well as religious consciousness, spiritual development and dimensions related to the Ramayana. The construction work of the circumambulation path of Lord Kamtanath will also be started soon.

This historic moment of the Pran-Pratishta of Ramlala in Ayodhya is an occasion of inspiration for us.
