Ayodhya temple: Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lay foundation stone on August 5


The festivities began before the ‘bhoomi pujan‘or ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the Ram temple tomorrow in Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundations for the Ram Temple. On Shravan Purnima, the last day of the holy month of Sawan, the rituals of aarti and havan were played at Ram Ki Paudi. A bridge over the Saryu River and other key places were decorated with lights. Diyas or lamps were also lit in temples throughout Ayodhya.

Prayers will be offered today at Hanuman Garhi Temple in Ayodhya. Twelve priests on Monday led puja dedicated to Lord Ganesh. This was followed by prayers to the deities of Lord Ram and the goddess Sita.

Rang Mahal priest Sharan Das Maharaj said the “Deepotsav” or festival of lights on August 5th will be like “never before”. “I have been associated with Ram Janmabhoomi Aandolan for a long time. We have struggled a lot for this day. It will be Deepawali in Ayodhya. I have the chance to witness the construction of the temple of Ram,” said Sharan Das Maharaj.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath yesterday offered prayers at Hanuman Garhi temple and provided an update on preparations for the ‘bhoomi pujan“. The Chief Minister called for only those who have been invited to come to Ayodhya tomorrow. Of the 175 guests at the main ceremony, 135 are ‘health‘or religious leaders belonging to many Hindu sects, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust said in a series of tweets.

According to the trust, some guests, including religious figures, face “certain practical difficulties” in participating in the ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic. Trust asked the faithful to organize ‘bhajans‘and ‘kirtans‘outside of Ayodhya, keeping COVID-19 guidelines in mind.
