Ram Mandir Abhishek will be telecasted from Times Square in New York

In a momentous occasion transcending borders, the highly anticipated 'Pran-Pratishtha' ceremony, marking the consecration of the Ram Temple, will not only be broadcast nationwide but will also illuminate the iconic Time Square in New York. This historic event symbolizes a cultural convergence that resonates globally, showcasing the significance of the Ram Temple beyond geographical boundaries. As the sacred rituals unfold, the spiritual fervor will reach new heights, fostering a sense of unity and shared cultural heritage that transcends continents. The radiant spectacle in Time Square serves as a testament to the universal resonance of cultural celebrations and the interconnectedness of diverse communities around the world.   


In a momentous global event, Times Square in the heart of New York City is set to live stream the highly anticipated mega consecration of the Ram Temple scheduled for January 22 in Ayodhya, India. Sources reveal that the auspicious 'Pran-Pratishtha' (consecration) ceremony of Ram Lalla will not only be broadcasted across all states in India but will also be telecast at numerous Indian embassies worldwide. This historic occasion will be graced by a special address from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will extend his words to Ram bhakts (devotees) both within India and abroad. The convergence of this sacred event on a global platform reflects the universal significance and resonance of the Ram Temple consecration.   


In the midst of these developments, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced its intention to bring the consecration ceremony of Shri Ram to the forefront of national attention. Taking a technologically innovative approach, the ruling party has revealed plans to broadcast the sacred event live at the grassroots level across the entire nation. As reported by the news agency ANI, BJP workers are actively engaged in the preparations, receiving instructions to arrange large screens for the live telecast of the Shri Ram Consecration at the booth level. This initiative underscores the party's commitment to ensuring widespread participation and enthusiasm among the masses during this significant and symbolic occasion.   


"In this manner, the broader community will be granted the auspicious opportunity to behold the divine presence of Shri Ram Lala and partake in the sacred consecration ceremony," disclosed a source to ANI.   

The Vedic rituals, integral to the Pran-Pratishtha ceremony of Ram Lalla, the infant manifestation of Lord Ram, are set to commence on January 16, initiating a week-long spiritual preparation leading up to the grand main ceremony.   



According to reliable sources, Prime Minister Modi is actively overseeing the preparations for the upcoming ceremony, demonstrating a keen interest in understanding the intricacies of the rituals and rules associated with the event. Set to take place on January 22, ahead of the Pran-Pratistha, the Prime Minister has unequivocally pledged to adhere to all religious protocols and procedures, showcasing his deep respect for the occasion.   


In an exclusive conversation with India Today TV, Nripendra Mishra, the chief of the Ram temple construction committee, revealed that PM Modi has reached out to the Ram Mandir trust, seeking detailed information on any specific sacred guidelines he should follow before performing the Pran-Pratishtha. This proactive engagement underscores the Prime Minister's commitment to ensuring a respectful and spiritually significant observance of this momentous occasion.   



In anticipation of the upcoming Pran-Pratishtha ceremony, a meticulously chosen 51-inch tall Krishna Shila idol of Lord Ram, adorned in the resplendent Shyam Varn (dark hue), is set to grace the sacred occasion. This divine representation is not merely a statue; it is poised to become a profound symbol, embodying the essence of divinity, the regality inherent in Lord Ram, and the pure innocence reminiscent of a child.   


Before the Yagopavit sanskar, a momentous event in itself, the intricately crafted idol of Lord Ram will be unveiled, taking center stage on a lotus-shaped platform within the Garbh Grah, exuding an aura of spiritual significance. Nripendra Mishra, in his announcement, revealed the poignant decision to place the old Ram Lalla statue, now dubbed "Utsav Ram," before the new idol. This transitional homage pays respect to the historical legacy, bridging the sacred past with the auspicious present.   


Post the ceremony on January 16, both statues will find their permanent abode in the new Ram Mandir, a sanctified space that echoes with centuries of devotion. Adding a touch of reverence to the proceedings, it is declared that the eye cover of the Lord Ram statue will be ceremoniously opened by none other than Prime Minister Modi himself on January 22, infusing the moment with spiritual grace and national significance. This upcoming event promises to be a convergence of tradition, devotion, and political leadership, as the sacred journey unfolds towards the inauguration of the new Ram Mandir.
