In response to President Droupadi Murmu's letter regarding the 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony of Ayodhya's Ram temple, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his sentiments in a letter on Tuesday, emphasizing the profound impact of his visit to the grand Ram temple.
The Prime Minister described his visit to Ayodhya as a pilgrim, expressing overwhelming emotions upon witnessing the historic confluence of faith and history. He highlighted the privilege and responsibility of being present at such a momentous occasion and conveyed that Ayodhya has become inseparable from him.
Referring to the President's mention of his 11-day religious exercise and the 'Yama-Niyams' related to it, Prime Minister Modi acknowledged the centuries-long vows of countless people to have Ram Lalla reside at his birthplace. He considered being the medium for the fulfillment of these resolves as a deeply emotional and fortunate moment.
The Prime Minister credited Lord Shri Ram for inspiring the principles of 'sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishvas aur sabka prayas' (inclusive development for all) in every chapter of his life. He noted that under this inspiration, 25 crore people have risen out of poverty over the past ten years.
President Murmu's letter had praised the Prime Minister's 11-day rigorous Anushthan as a sacred ritual and a supreme spiritual act of sacrifice and submission to Prabhu Shri Ram. She observed the nationwide celebratory atmosphere around the inauguration of the grand temple in Ayodhya as an uninhibited expression of India's eternal soul.
