“Construction of a grand temple at Ayodhya-the birth place of Lord Rama is not only good for India, but is a must for attaining global welfare. It is global necessity. It is must for peace, development and welfare of all”, declared Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Chief.
INAUGURATING the ‘Hanumatshakti Jagarana Abhiyana’ at Nagpur’s famous Agaram Devi Temple premises on August 16 coinciding Tulsi Jayanti, Shri Mohan Bhagwat said that Sri Rama embodied all the highest values of human life which can guide the entire humanity on the path of peace and progress.
Shri Bhagwat said that already a small temple existed at the birth place of Sri Rama at Ayodhya and what was needed was to convert that small temple into a grand, magnificent temple fulfilling the aspirations of millions of Hindus for whom it has been the matter of faith since eons.
“We are trying to have the grand temple built there with consensus, but if required, we are also ready for another struggle for the same”, thundered the RSS Chief with equally thundering applause and slogans of ‘Jai Sriram’ from the jam-packed audience.
“It is unbelievable that in a country of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ we have to take recourse to agitation programmes to establish the truth”, he said. “No man-made court can resolve the issue of Ramjanmabhumi as it has been the matter of faith for millions of Hindus worldwide. But we are waiting for the courts to decide the issue for this long. Now that all evidences were submitted; and the lawyers completed their arguments, we are expecting the verdict of the court, the RSS Sarsanghachalak said.
Shri Bhagwat reminded the audience that Sri Rama was our ‘national hero’ and the makers of Indian Constitution recognised this by inserting the portrait of Rama in the original copy of our Constitution. Sri Rama was the very personification of all good virtues in human life which India cherished since its hoary past. Rama was the very embodiment of Dharma-a system that sustained the society, inculcated the values of humanity and fraternity amongst people; and Rama himself lived upto these ideals which he wanted others to follow.
Therefore, Shri Bhagwat exhorted the people to take up the fulfillment of mission of Sri Rama that is to establish these values again. ‘Rama’s mission is the mission of Dharma’, he said and urged the people to be prepared for this grand mission like Hanuman.
The RSS Sarsanghchalak opined that Hanuman was all devoted for the cause of Rama. He had no personal ambitions of any kind. His was a fully devoted life at the lotus feet of Sri Rama. Like him, we have to arouse this strength in our society; and lead such awakened society to establish the grand temple at Ayodhya for the welfare of entire humanity. This awakened societal strength is to be used only for the mission of Lord Rama and not for any political party or association, Shri Bhagwat cautioned.
“This every Hindu must take up as his mission, as a vow to dedicate all his talents, education and strength for the nation. This vow will be fulfilled only after the grand temple at Ayodhya is erected”, he said.
Shri Bhagwat said that Hanuman’s strength was the basis of Rama’s mission of establishing Dharma on this earth. Today also we need this strength and hence this ‘Hanumatshakti Jagaran Abhiyan’, he added. He exhorted the people to read ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ daily as a vow till the Rama Temple is constructed at Ayodhya. “Strength of Hanuman has to be awakened among the members of the society to make them ready to attain the target of construction of the temple with the speed of a wind”, he said.
The ‘Hanumatshakti Jagaran Abhiyan’ was launched at Nagpur with full grandeur and fanfare under the auspices of Sri Hanumatshakti Jagaran Samiti. The program began with chanting of Hanuman Chalisa 11 times. Shri Bhagwat also released the book title “Sri Ramjanmabhumi Muktiche Abhutpurva Andolan” in Marathi penned by former editor of Tarun Bharat Shri D B alias Mamasaheb Ghumre and published by Nachiket Prakashan.
Earlier, Shri Barai Maharaj and VHP Central Committee member Sriramji Joshi appealed to the people to be ready for construction of Rama Temple at Ayodhya and create a social awareness through this unique awareness campaign.
The programme was attended by Vidarbha regional committee president Prafulla Gadge, working president Vijayjit Walia, vice president Satnam Singh Sokhi, VHP State Secretary Prof Hemant Jambhekar and others. Besides, prominent personalities of Nagpur attended the function.
