Sri Rama pattabhishekam and Shri Ram Lalla Pran Pratishthapana are described in Mantralaya (1074).


On 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.

Having 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.

Vibhishana, 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."

Swiftly, 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.

Hanumanth 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.

King Dasharatha, 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 Patabhisheka.

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.

Rama 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.

Today, 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.

ramaya ramabhadrāya ramacandraya vedhase
raghunathaya nathaya sitayaḥ pataye namaḥ॥

Jai Sri Rama

The devotion towards Sri Raghavendrateertharu is the ultimate truth and is the most simple and effective way to reach Sri Hari  - "NAMBI KETTAVARILLAVO EE GURUGALA"! “Those who have complete faith in this Guru will never be disappointed.”
