Shri Ramlala Consecration Ceremony: Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Central working President and senior advocate Shri Alok Kumar today said that, on the call of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra, we will extend invitation to more than 10 crore families in the country and abroad, in connection with the consecration program of Ram Lala, to be held in Ayodhya in the coming January.
On this day, about 4000 prominent saints of all Hindutva traditions, prominent officials of VHP and senior social, cultural and creative leadership of the country will participate in Ayodhya.
He said that we Diwali marks the celebration of Bhagwan Shri Ram’s return to Ayodhya after 14 years, but on 22nd January 2024, the world will be celebrating the second Diwali when Ram ji will return to his birthplace after 500 years, at the time of ‘Amrit kaal’ of Bharat’s independence.
Therefore, it is necessary that the entire Hindu society from around the world should directly participate in this ‘Pran Pratistha’ ceremony. All Ram devotees cannot be called to Ayodhya on the same day, therefore, our call is that Hindus all over the world should consider the temple in their locality or village as Ayodhya and gather there, perform puja, worship and rituals as per the tradition there, chant the ‘vijay maha mantra’ “Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram” given by the revered saints, watch the live telecast of the grand divine program of Ayodhya, offer prayers iand Aarti and join hands to share prasad and enjoy this historic event by witnessing it.
The VHP Working President said in a press conference held in Delhi that the pious ‘Akshat’ (yellow rice) kalash sanctified in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple on 5th November 2023 has been sent to 45 provinces formed as per the vision the organization’s structure. Taking this invitation on the call of Teerth Kshetra Trust, the workers of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, along with other Hindu organizations, will visit Hindu families in the cities and villages of the country between 1st to 15th January’24.
A similar program has also been organized for Hindus living abroad. Along with this invitation, we will also give a picture of Bhagwan Ram, and His temple, with other necessary information to each family, to be kept in puja . Our assessment so far is that this event will definitely take place in more than 5 lakh temples across the world and millions of Hindus will participate in it.
This time we are not going to the society to seek anything. Therefore, the teams or workers engaged in this work will not accept any gift, donation or other materials.
He also said that lakhs of Hindus have participated in the campaign to liberate Shri Ram Janmabhoomi, that has been going on since 1984. Many liberation warriors who sacrificed their life for this cause are no longer in this world, and their families would want to see the fulfilment of their dream. For this purpose, VHP has categorized the country into 45 provinces, and requested each province to visit Ayodhya on a fixed day between January 27 and February 22. Arrangements have been made for darshan of about 1 lakh people.
He called upon every Hindu family to light at least 5 lamps on the auspicious night of 22nd January’24 and visit Ayodhya with family and friends on any day thereafter. Vishwa Hindu Parishad is confident that this temple of Ram ji will spread harmony, unity and self-respect among the Hindus across the world and will emerge as a national temple to take Bharat towards its ultimate glory.
