Now only a few days are left for the inauguration of the grand Ram temple in Ayodhya and the consecration of Ramlala. On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he will follow the strict Yama rule for the next 11 days. According to the guidance given by the saints and ascetics, special rituals will be performed for the next 11 days. Modi started the rituals with worship of Lord Ram at Kalaram Temple in Nashik. While doing a road show in Nashik, Modi directly reached Kalaram Temple. Kalaram temple situated in Panchavati area is very famous. Ram devotees have deep faith in this temple. According to Ramayana, Panchavati is the same place where Lord Ram, Mother Sita and Lakshman stayed for about two and a half years during the 14 years of exile, after the tenth year. Modi worshiped at the Kalaram temple for 15 minutes, performed aarti, sat with the bhajan group and sang bhajans and played manjira. Modi cleaned the temple, carrying water in a bucket himself and cleaning the floor. Modi had left Delhi in the morning saying that he would perform special rituals for the next 11 days and it would start from Nashik. Modi started the rituals by visiting Ramkund on the banks of river Godavari in Nashik and worshiped Godavari as per Vedic traditions under the guidance of priests. Modi released an audio message in which he said that now only 11 days are left for the historic moment of Ram Lala’s life, he will participate in this program with the energy and blessings of 140 crore people of the country. Modi said that the way he is feeling these days, the way he is overwhelmed with emotions, he is unable to express it in words. Modi said that this opportunity has come from the efforts of five hundred years and the tenacity of hundreds of generations. He is witnessing this moment, so there is a surge of emotions within him. Modi said that before the consecration of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya, he has to follow the traditions for 11 days, for the Yagya of God, for worship, he has to awaken the divine consciousness in himself, follow the rules of Yama mentioned in the scriptures. He has to do it, he will follow it with full devotion, devotion and spiritual strength. Modi said that he is immersed in a sea of ​​emotions thinking about what the moment he will go to the sanctum sanctorum, what will that moment be like, what will be the experience. Modi said that the moment he will enter the sanctum sanctorum, 140 crore people of the country will be connected with him in their hearts, he will dedicate the feelings and devotion of 140 crore people at the feet of Ramlala.

The priests of Kalaram Temple were also surprised to see Narendra Modi’s faith, his determination and his determination to follow the difficult rules mentioned in the scriptures. Many priests said that they had never seen a Prime Minister who followed a rigorous fast along with his work. Every word of what Modi said in his audio message expressed the sentiments of crores of people of the country. Today, this is the feeling among Ram devotees spread all over the world, everyone wants to see Ramlala first, everyone wants to go to Ayodhya and see the grand Ram temple once. It is true that after five hundred years of penance, a historic opportunity has come. Ayodhya is not a symbol of war, barbarity, atrocities, injustice or oppression for any Ram devotee. Apart from being the birthplace of Lord Ram, Ayodhya is also a symbol of mutual harmony, spirituality, eternal culture and Ramraj and after five hundred years, this form of Ayodhya is returning. Ramlala is again seated in the grand temple. This is a moment of pride for Hindus all over the world. It is a matter of pride that the leadership of the country is currently in the hands of a leader who not only understands the Sanatan traditions but also respects and follows them. Modi observes Navdurga fast twice a year. And now Ram will perform rigorous rituals for 11 days before the inauguration of the temple. But it is important to keep in mind that in these eleven days, Modi’s daily routine as Prime Minister, his meetings and work will not stop. Therefore this ritual will be more difficult but Congress has objection that why is Modi doing all this? Why is Modi the host of Pran Pratistha? Why are BJP leaders so active regarding the program to be held in Ayodhya?

On Friday, two Congress spokespersons held a press conference and cursed Narendra Modi. Pawan Kheda said that BJP has made religion a farce, Modi is going to commit a grave sin by consecrating his life in a half-finished temple, without a peak. Another spokesperson Supriya Shrinet said that the real issues like inflation and unemployment are not being discussed, hence BJP is creating drama in the name of Ram and Congress cannot be a part of it. Congress should not go into the consecration of Ram Temple, it may be a matter of their faith and belief but questioning the faith of Modi, using words like broker, middleman is not in line with the dignity of an old party like Congress. If anyone wants to know what is Modi’s connection with the Ram temple, then they should listen to LK Advani, the founder of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. On Friday, Advani said that Narendra Modi was with me every moment during the Rath Yatra. Actually Modi was the charioteer of Advani’s chariot. Advani said that destiny itself had decided that the Ram temple would be built, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the temple, he will represent every citizen of our India. The issue of Ram temple was in Modi’s election manifesto. Modi himself took active interest in getting the Ram temple built quickly and in a grand manner. Modi is the Prime Minister elected by the people of the country, a symbol of the faith of crores of people of the country. If he was invited for the consecration of Ram Lalla in the Ram temple, then why would Congress object to it? Actually this objection is not religious. Congress has nothing to do with whether the temple is completed or not. Congress is not concerned with whether the rules and regulations were followed or not. The problem of Congress is that this will give advantage to Modi in the Lok Sabha elections. These days, these worries are troubling those running the Congress.

There are many old experienced leaders in Congress who are trying to explain that if Congress opposes Ram Mandir and boycotts Pran Pratistha, it will cause more damage, but those running the Congress are so lost in opposing Modi that they are not able to convince the people. Unable to understand emotions. Whatever Modi does, it has become a policy to oppose him. It has become a habit to raise questions on whatever Modi makes. If there is a temple then why not call Shankaracharya, boycott it. When the new Parliament building was built, why didn’t the President be called to boycott it? Such excuses are clearly visible. Therefore, Congress should listen to its leaders who feel that boycotting the consecration ceremony and raising questions on the construction of Ram Temple is unfortunate and there was no need for it. If Congress leaders did not want to go, they should have listened to their party’s senior most leader, Dr. Karan Singh. Dr. Karan Singh said that being a Raghuvanshi, he had donated Rs 11 lakh for the Ram temple. Karan Singh said that he himself wanted to go to Ayodhya but his health was not supporting him. On January 22, he will organize a special event at his home. Not only this, Dr. Karan Singh’s Family Trust is also organizing a big event on 22 January at the famous Raghunath Temple of Jammu. Dr. Karan Singh is saying that when the Ram temple is being constructed after the decision of the Supreme Court, then there is no reason for hesitation in going to the Pran Pratishtha ceremony.
