Ram Mandir Opening With PM Modi’s ‘Blessings’

Temple Trust Invites Yogi, Too

Over 4,000 saints of the country and 2,500 eminent personalities will be present at the programme

LUCKNOW, Nov 10 (The CONNECT) -Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will attend the consecration ceremony of the Shri Ramlala idol at the newly constructed Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya. The senior functionaries of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust extended a formal invitation to the Chief Minister during a meeting at his residence on Friday.

Following the meeting, the Chief Minister shared his joy on social media, stating, "Today, life has become truly blessed. My heart is filled with happiness. I extend my gratitude to the respected officials of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust, Swami Govinddev Giri Ji Maharaj, Shri Champat Rai Ji, and Shri Rajendra Pankaj Ji, for inviting me to the consecration program of the new idol of Lord Shri Ramlala Sarkar in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple. Jai Jai Sitaram!"

It is noteworthy that Shri Gorakshpeeth has maintained a continuous association with the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya. During the British colonial period, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's grandfather, Mahant Digvijaynath Ji Maharaj, played a crucial role in raising the issue of the Shri Ram Temple. Following his demise, Mahant Avedyanath Ji Maharaj embraced his Gurudev's resolve, initiating a decisive struggle for the construction of the Shri Ram Temple. In 1984, when the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya Committee was formed in Valmiki Bhawan, Ayodhya, Mahant Avedyanath Ji Maharaj was unanimously elected as the president. He continued to serve as the president of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya Committee throughout his life.

An official release by the UP government yesterday said, over 4000 saints of the country and 2,500 eminent personalities will be present in this much-anticipated programme, which will be held with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's blessings on Paush Shukla Dwadashi, Vikram Samvat 2080 (January 22, 2024). The sentiments of Sanatan believers across the country and the world are linked to this special program.

Meanwhile, Ayodhya has geared up for its seventh Deepotsav, with over 24 lakh lamps set to illuminate the city under the guidance of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the management of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University. The Guinness Book of World Records team has initiated the lamp count at 51 ghats in the presence of supervisor, ghat in-charge, coordinator and counting volunteers.

Prof. Sant Sharan Mishra, the Nodal officer of Deepotsav, expressed that the event scheduled for November 11 is poised to be both spectacular and otherworldly. The police administration and university security personnel will safeguard the lamps at 51 ghats. On Deepotsav day, from 10 am onwards, oil will be poured into over 24 lakh lamps, with volunteers handling the process under the supervision of various officials. The Guinness Book of World Records team will oversee the counting of lamps at each ghat.
