The symbolism of 'Jai Shri Ram,' a popular religious chant associated with Lord Rama, resonating high above American soil has ignited a wave of appreciation. The 'Jai Shri Ram' flag soaring in American airspace serves as a reminder of the diaspora's connection to their roots and the potential for cultural exchange to transcend borders.
The viral video comes a day after the Ram Mandir opened its doors to the public after Monday's grand consecration ceremony. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led this landmark ceremony, urging the nation to move beyond the construction of the grand temple and focus on laying the foundation for a "strong, capable, and divine" India for the next 1,000 years.
The 'pran pratishtha (consecration)' ceremony was witnessed by millions of people through television broadcasts in their homes and local temples, allowing them to savor this historic moment. The ceremony featured a variety of artistic performances, including folk dances, and a religious troupe from Bhopal conducted a 'palki yatra.' Devotees from Ayodhya and other cities filled the streets of the temple town, chanting "Jai Shri Ram" as the ceremony unfolded.
"January 22, 2024, is not merely a date in the calendar but heralds the advent of a new era," Modi said after he performed a series of rituals in the 'garbha griha (sanctum sanctorum)' with the consecration taking place during an 84-second 'Abhijeet muhurta' starting at 12.29 pm. After the consecration ceremony concluded, a substantial number of invitees, including seers, proceeded to have a 'darshan' of the deity.
