The full schedule of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir Ramlala Pran Pratishtha Ceremony is eagerly awaited across the country.

After the installation of Ramlala in the sanctum sanctorum, devotees will have the opportunity to easily have the darshan of their deity. Let’s delve into the details of the auspicious time chosen for the consecration of life in Ayodhya Ram temple and the significance of this chosen day.

The Significance of the Date and Time for the Pran Pratistha of the Ram Mandir

On January 22, 2024, the auspicious time for consecrating the life of Ramlala in the Ram temple is from 12:29 minutes 8 seconds to 12:30 minutes 32 seconds. Interestingly, only a brief window of 84 seconds will be available for the consecration of Shri Ram’s life during this period.

Why is 22 January 2024 Important for Pran Pratishtha?

The uniqueness of January 22 lies in various astrological alignments and auspicious elements:

  • Date and Celestial Alignments
    It is the twelfth day of Shukla Paksha in the Pausha month.
  • Nakshatra and Yoga
    On this day, the Mrigishra with Adra Nakshatra and Indra with Adra Nakshatra Yoga will prevail.
  • Auspiciousness throughout the Day:
    January 22 will be marked by the continuous presence of Amritsiddh and Savarthirsiddh, enhancing the overall auspiciousness.
  • Astrological Considerations:
    The presence of an exalted Guru Maharaj in the ninth house from Navamsha Lagna, along with Abhijeet Muhurat, adds to the favorable conditions. At 12:30 minutes 21 seconds, Shishtyamsh Lagna will transition to Singh. The fifth house of the horoscope will become the Kala Lagna, and the exalted ascendant in the ninth house will be with Jupiter. Additionally, the presence of Trikon to Guru enhances the overall astrological significance.

Given these astrological alignments, the specific time chosen for consecrating life on January 22 is considered highly auspicious and aligns with favorable celestial energies, making it a moment of profound significance in the spiritual and astrological realms.

What is Pran Pratistha?

Pran Pratistha holds a distinct and profound significance within Hinduism, particularly during the consecration of idols representing deities. This ritual involves the establishment of the life force within the idol, transforming it from a mere sculpture into a revered deity. The term “Pran Pratistha” literally translates to the establishment of a life force, emphasizing the infusion of divine energy into the idol.

The process of Pran Pratistha encompasses several stages, each contributing to the sanctity of the idol. These stages include ‘Adhivas’ or preparatory rituals, followed by consecrations such as Jaladhivas (involving sacred water), Annadhivas (offering of grains), Phaladhyas (presentation of fruits), and Ghritadhivas (anointing with ghee).

Pran Pratistha Ceremonies at Ram Mandir

Scheduled for January 21st and 22nd, 2024, the Ram Mandir will host a series of Pran Pratistha ceremonies. Notably, on January 22, 2024, during the auspicious period of Mrigishra Nakshatra, the idol of Ramlala will be consecrated within the sanctum sanctorum. This consecration will be conducted with utmost reverence, adhering to traditional rituals that have been integral to Hindu practices for centuries.

The ceremonies serve as a sacred bridge between the physical representation of the deity and the divine presence it embodies. Through Pran Pratistha, devotees believe that the deity comes to life within the idol, creating a direct and spiritually charged connection between the worshipper and the divine. The rituals conducted during these ceremonies are not merely symbolic; they are deeply ingrained in the spiritual fabric of Hindu worship, fostering a sense of divine presence and sanctity within the sacred space of the temple.
