Ram Mandir consecration ceremony to be telecast live at Times Square

“The live broadcast of the consecration ceremony of Shri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on January 22 will not only be telecast across India at booth level but also be live-stream at the iconic Times Square in New York City in the United States, India Today reported Sunday citing sources.  

The report said the much-awaited ‘Pran-Pratishtha’ ceremony of Ram Lalla will also be live-streamed at various Indian embassies, and consulates overseas.  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address all the devotees of Bhagwan Ram in the country and abroad. 

Earlier in August 2020, a digital billboard of the Ram Mandir was played at Times Square marking ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ of Shri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on August 5.  

PM Modi performed Bhoomi Pujan of the grand temple in Ayodhya, the ruling BJP has instructed its workers to set up large screens for the live telecast of the Shri Ram consecration at the booth level, news agency ANI reported. 

“This way, the general public can have darshan of Shri Ram Lala and witness the consecration ceremony,” ANI reported citing a source.  

Workers may choose to distribute blankets, organize community feasts (‘bhandara’), or “contribute through donations in terms of food or fruits to help those in need,” the sources added. 

Vedic rituals for the Pran-Pratishtha (consecration) ceremony of Ram Lalla (infant Lord Ram) are scheduled to commence on January 16, a week before the main ceremony.
