Ram Setu – An inspiration for the Bhavya Ram Mandir in Ayodhya

When every little stone and huge boulder is collected together and joined together, they formed a Setu which is till date the most remarkable feat achieved in the history of mankind. This Ram Setu was built by not any celestial with divine powers, but with the grit and determination of man and monkey. The same duo today is our greatest inspiration in contributing for the exceptional temple which is being made for our very own Ram Lalla as his home in Ayodhya.


After Shri Ram and his mighty Vanar army set out to rescue Mata Sita declaring war on Ravan, they reach the final barrier of the great ocean to reach Lanka. The Ocean is vast and deep, but does not deter Shri Ram’s courage. He did have the power to dry up the mighty Ocean and walk ahead, but as a noble warrior, he respects the laws of Nature and seeks help from Samudradev. When Samudradev gives them the solution to bridge the waters with a Setu, it looks impossible, but Shri Ram trusts his team to build the bridge. With the encouragement given by their leader, each and every Vanar comes ahead and up roots mighty trees, rocks, boulders and stones to build a bridge with their own hands. So inspirational is the task that a small squirrel to gets motivated to be a part of the great task, and wins the gentle love and affection of Shri Ram with its tiny gesture of contribution.

By crediting his entire team for the successful completion of the Ram Setu in just five days, Shri Ram builds up the confidence of his army by which they cross the Mighty Ocean and win the battle on Lanka. Today, it is the same confidence and strength given by Shri Ram that after a struggle for more than four hundred years by his devotees, he has come back to his abode in Ayodhya as Shri Ram Lalla. Just as the people of those times celebrated Shri Ram’s return after his exile, today, so are we celebrating his return back to Ayodhya. It is time for our Almighty to reside in his heavenly abode for which a beautiful temple is in the process of being shaped. The Ayodhya Ram Mandir is one of the outstanding victories of our Sanatana Dharma and will stand as a reflection of faith in it since times immemorial.

Just as every Vanar warrior has contributed for the Ram Setu, it is time for all to unite for the contribution towards the construction of the Bhavya Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. As Swami Vivekananda said arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached, today all the devotees are working hard towards the construction of the temple which will make us stand together for the cause of Dharma. It is not whether one will be a Hanuman, or an unknown Vanar warrior, or even the little squirrel which has contributed to the Ram Setu, but a collective effort of one and all. It is an urge to see the Bhavya Ram Mandir in reality. There is no stopping now after the relentless fight to bring Shri Ram back to his home, and it will continue as a divine process till the finale where Shri  Ram Lalla resides in his home temple where he belongs and protect us all with his blessings. Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah!
