What is Pran Pratishtha?
Pran Pratishtha is a Hindu ritual where a deity’s idol is formally installed in its designated temple. This ceremony invites the deity into the temple, establishing them as its guardian and object of worship.
The ceremony began at 11:00 AM with the purification of the temple’s sanctum sanctorum using sacred water. The idols were then installed, followed by the chanting of mantras and the performance of specific rituals.
Lakhs of devotees from around the world flooded Ayodhya to participate in this historic event. The ceremony was also broadcast globally, watched by millions across various TV channels.
Meaning and Impact:
The Pran Pratishtha ceremony marks a significant milestone for Hindus, culminating in the culmination of the long-standing Ram Mandir movement. It symbolizes the rise of Hindu nationalism within India and is celebrated as a victory for the community.
