There is joy and enthusiasm everywhere. We heard that before attending this consecration ceremony, Prime Minister Narendra Modi observed challenging fast, which reflects his ascetic nature.”
He added that by adhering to Lord Ram’s policies of unprecedented patience, renunciation, penance and sacrifice, citizens can help India become a global leader. are the policies of Shri Ram, following which we will be able to make India a world leader, spreading its radiance throughout the world.
“The reason behind Lord Shri Ram’s departure from Ayodhya was a familial conflict. He went into exile and returned after ending the discord in the entire world. Presently, after 500 years, Shri Ram Lalla has returned which assures the welfare of all those who are being witness to this historic event. However, disciplined behaviour and good conduct like that of the people living in Tretayug is essential for achieving Ramrajya”, he pointed out. Instead of engaging in conflicts, our contribution to the progress of the country must be through good conduct, he added.

The second stage is that of compassion, wherein we are obligated to serve everyone in society. Cleanliness is the third stage, through which we must promote hygiene. If we maintain self-discipline, the Earth will sustain all human beings. True devotion to Lord Ram involves avoiding greed and practising self-discipline. This brings purity into our lives”, he remarked.
