The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced plans to telecast the grand consecration ceremony of Sri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya live on the booth level across the country.
The ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 22, 2024. As per party sources, BJP workers have been instructed to set up large screens for the live telecast of the Sri Ram Consecration at the booth level. This initiative aims to provide a means for the common people to witness the consecration of Sri Ram Lalla.
“This way, the general public can have darshan of Sri Ram Lalla and witness the consecration ceremony,” the source mentioned. Additionally, BJP workers are encouraged to engage in social work on a personal level.
“Workers may choose to distribute blankets, organise community feasts (‘bhandar’), or contribute through donations in terms of food or fruits to help those in need,” the sources added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend the consecration ceremony at the Ram Mandir on January 22. The event has garnered significant attention, with several VVIP guests from India and abroad receiving invitations to participate in the auspicious occasion in Ayodhya.
Vedic rituals for the Pran-Pratishtha (consecration) ceremony of Ram Lalla (infant Bhagwan Ram) in Ayodhya will begin on January 16, a week before the main ceremony.
A priest from Varanasi, Lakshmi Kant Dixit, will perform the main rituals of the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla on January 22. From January 14 to January 22, Ayodhya will mark the Amrit Mahotsav.
A 1008 Hundi Mahayagya will also be organised, in which thousands of devotees will be fed. Several tent cities are being erected in Ayodhya to accommodate thousands of devotees, who are expected to arrive in the temple town of Uttar Pradesh for the grand consecration.
According to the Shri Ram Janambhoomi Trust, arrangements will be made for 10,000-15,000 people. Local authorities are gearing up for the anticipated surge in visitors around the grand ceremony and are in the process of implementing enhanced security measures and making logistical arrangements to ensure a smooth and spiritually enriching experience for all attendees.
