Special Story About Ayodhya Deepotsav Diwali 2021: Shore Of Saryu Became Illuminated, As If God Appeared, Every Particle Reverberated Ram Ram
‘Look at people all the grace Sindhu God. Lord Prereu Utreu Bhoomi Biman near the city.” These lines of Uttarkand of Ramcharit Manas were seen to be fulfilled at that time when the banks of my Sarayu got illuminated with lakhs of lamps. Everyone was involved in a competition to connect their faith with some kind of lamp. This festival of gaiety, enthusiasm, ecstasy began to prove its significance when the whole earth reverberated with the cheers of the people. Wonderful….Unprecedented…Unimaginable….divine….Gorgeous….. There is light everywhere, as if my Lord had just descended from the Pushpak Vimana.
Today I am seeing all that is being realized, which Maharishi Valmiki and Baba Tulsi have created. Now look, the whole of Ayodhya is illuminated. Every building, every street, every temple, every ghat…every corner of me is shining brightly. Big and small gates built at different places are inviting you to pass through them again and again. The sacred sounds of conch shells, bells and drums are being heard from all sides. People are cheering with these sounds. The amazing glare of laser technology has worked to give a different aura.
Countless scenes of Ramayana have emerged in water-land-air. Every particle of the banks of my Saryu has come alive. Everyone is watching this scene and trying to cherish it in mind, mobile, brain. I, my Ram’s Ayodhya, also want to cherish this wonderful sight, so that I can tell the coming generations that we saw a Diwali like this too. __—— By the way, walking in my streets today is also giving a different kind of pleasure. The brilliance of Deepotsav is visible everywhere. It seems that everyone’s own Ram, that is, everyone’s Ram, has reached everyone. On the one hand, I am being illuminated by the programs organized by the government, and on the other hand, the people who live in me have created a different kind of glow. Anyone you meet is greeted with renewed vigor and gaiety. It does not seem that today is the second day of Deepotsav and the main Diwali festival is yet to happen.
__—— People have decorated the houses and idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi have been installed in them along with Lord Rama, devotee Hanuman. With the realization of the divinity of the festival, everyone hopes that their good fortune will definitely be associated with the changing Ayodhya. The truth is that it has taken years and years for me and my people to be free from politics and courts. Perhaps this is the reason why everyone wants to live their own share of Ram and Ayodhya of their Ram. This festival of happiness, prosperity and progress is spreading new zeal and everyone is getting drenched in it. Now listen, the lyrics of the songs are being heard in every street with the beats of the dholak and the thumping of the majeers. My streets with temples are buzzing today in such a way that the concept of Ram of the people has come true and my Lord is with everyone. —
The festival of light, like this every Indian feels like his own. But, it has a different style and significance in Ayodhya. Anyway, ever since the construction of a grand temple at the birthplace of Lord Rama has started, the meaning of Diwali has changed here. I cannot claim, but I hope that in the coming days people from all over the world will start coming here to be a part of this festival of light by donating lamps on the festival of lights. There is also hope that in the changing world and changing times due to technology, ‘Asato Ma Sadgamaya, Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya’. This festival, which gives inspiration to come true, will also receive new auras every now and then. Glittering, sparkling, new zeal and full of new gaiety, happy Diwali from Ayodhya…..
