BackgroundSri Rama pattabhishekam and Shri Ram Lalla Pran Pratishthapana are described in Mantralaya (1074).
Jan 22nd, 2024 we are going to witness the magnanimous historic event
of Sri Rama Prana Pratishthapana (Shri Ram Lalla Pran Pratishthapana)
with grand scale similar to when Sri Rama Returned to Ayodhya after 14
years of Vanavasa.
Let's revisit the moment when Sri Rama returned to Ayodhya.
vanquished the demon Ravana and liberated the earth from demonic
threats, Sri Rama resolved to return to Ayodhya, fulfilling his
commitment to the people of Ayodhya and his brother Bharata.
emerging like a lotus in the dark mud of Ravana's influence, humbly
asked Sri Rama to employ the advanced flight known as Pushpaka Vimana.
This celestial aircraft once belonged to King Kubera of Deva Loka and
operated at the speed of thought, receiving instructions as mental
signals with full autonomous capabilities. In our present times, for
the past 30 years, we have been investing in brain-computer interface
(BCI) technology to replicate this extraordinary ability. However, at
the moment, a device attached to the body is still necessary to
interpret these signals from the mind.
Sri Rama graciously
accepted the Pushpaka Vimana for his journey back to Ayodhya. Before
heading directly to Ayodhya, he decided to make a brief visit to Sage
Bharat Dwaja, who had been patiently awaiting his arrival. Turning to
his devoted follower Hanuman, Sri Rama entrusted him with a crucial
message: "Please go to Ayodhya and inform Bharata that I am on my way.
According to our promise (Pratignaya), Bharata will enter the fire if I
don't return promptly after completing the 14 years. Hurry, my friend."
Sri Hanumanth Devaru soared to Ayodhya and arrived promptly. From his
aerial perspective, he beheld a breathtaking sight—every home adorned
with distinct flowers and leaves, Nanda deeps (lights) flickering in
each dwelling, transforming every residence into a radiant sun of its
own. Sri Hanumanth Devaru was deeply moved and delighted by the
unwavering devotion of the people of Ayodhya towards Sri Rama.
Devaru observed the prepared arrangement of wood and fire, signaling
Bharata's anticipation of Sri Rama's arrival. With reassurance,
Hanumanth Devaru convinced Bharata that Sri Rama was indeed en route.
Pointing to the flourishing trees and the vibrant, healthy
surroundings, he emphasized, "Observe the thriving nature around us;
the Kapi Saniya roars in every corner. You must trust my words – Sri
Rama is on his way."
Lakhs and crores of people eagerly waited
and gazed at the sky after Sri Hanumanth Devaru conveyed the news of
Sri Rama's imminent arrival. As Rama's flight approached Ayodhya, the
resonant chant of "Sri Rama, Sri Rama" reverberated throughout the
entire vicinity, with the sound reaching even the farthest corners of
the galaxy. Unseen by human eyes, numerous gods and goddesses anxiously
awaited this divine moment in Ayodhya.
accompanied by all of Rama's devoted followers and admirers, bore
witness to Sri Rama's return from Yama Loka. Their collective
anticipation centered on the forthcoming auspicious event of Sri Rama's
coronation, and all eyes were fixed on the impending Sri Rama
Overwhelmed with tears, Bharata reverently placed
the Rama Paduke on his head. With profound emotion, he approached Sri
Rama and gently laid them at his feet, clasping both of his hands
tightly to the feet of Sri Rama. In a heartfelt exchange, Sri Rama
lifted Bharata, embracing him with warm devotion and offering solace to
his devoted brother.
Upon Bharata's request, preparations for
Sri Rama's Pattabhishekam, the coronation ceremony, were set in motion
under the guidance of Sage Vashista.To initiate the ceremony, Sage
Vashista urged the gathering to bring seawater from all four
directions. King Sugreeva, in turn, delegated the task to Jambuvanta,
Sri Hanuman, and others, assigning each a cardinal direction—east,
west, south, and north.
Recognizing the longer distance to the
north, Sri Hanuman was entrusted with the responsibility of obtaining
seawater from that direction, contributing to the grand preparations
for Sri Rama's momentous coronation.Following the completion of the
Pattabhishekam, Sri Rama addressed the assembled gathering, expressing,
"All of you who have gathered here and offered your prayers shall
forever reside in my heart, which is synonymous with Vaikunta, ensuring
eternal liberation for each one of you."
Sri Rama bestowed a
precious pearl necklace upon Sita, instructing her to give it to the
person she held in highest regard. Sita, recognizing Lord Hanuman's
unparalleled knowledge of Vishnu teachings, his unmatched prowess as a
warrior, and his exceptional humility, chose to present the necklace to
him. Sri Rama, acknowledging Sita's choice, remarked that for Lord
Hanuman, he should receive more than even Vaikunta. In a momentous
declaration, Sri Rama elevated Hanuman to the esteemed position of
Brahma in the next cosmic cycle, signifying that our Vayudevaru would
become the next Brahma. Furthermore, Sri Rama officially declared as
the King, with Bharata chosen as the successor as the Yuva Raja.
patiently endured the 14-year exile because he envisioned celebrating
the grand event in the presence of his devoted followers. Although King
Dasharatha was eager to crown Lord Rama king in the absence of Bharata,
the timing was crucial. Not only were Hanumantha, Sugreeva, and other
devoted followers unavailable at that time, but there was also a deeper
reason for accepting the Vanavasa (exile).
The decision to
embrace Vanavasa aimed at cleansing the earth from the impurities left
by Ravana. Symbolically, it serves as a profound message for us –
unless we rid our hearts of the negativity represented by Ravana, the
radiant presence of Sri Rama within us will not shine forth.
in Ayodhya, the atmosphere mirrors the same festive spirit and
illumination experienced during Sri Rama's Pattabhishekam. All over
Ayodhya and across the globe, believers in Rama have awaited this event
for over 500 years, spanning multiple generations. The present day
finds Ayodhya brimming with a devotional and positive energy that
resonates within the hearts and minds of the entire nation, Bharat,
India, and the world.
To witness the Shri Ram Lalla Pran
Pratishthapana in our lifetime is an extraordinary fortune. Our
esteemed Prime Minister and his team, chosen to inscribe this chapter
in history, aren't merely a coincidence; they embody the sheer and
potent blessing of Sri Lord Rama. Today marks not just an event, but a
seismic manifestation of collective faith, strength, and devotion,
echoing through time and space.
Sri Raghavendra Teertharu, in
Sri Rama Charita Manjari, eloquently portrays Sri Rama as the
omnipresent and omnipotent Vishnu. He implores Sri Rama to bestow
continual blessings upon us, guiding us towards the righteous path.
Seeking the divine grace to instill in us the innate ability and
strength to remember Sri Rama ceaselessly, Sri Raghavendra Teertharu
expresses a profound longing for a perpetual connection with the divine.
