namaskar , friends !
recently , on 22nd january , the inauguration of ram mandir was held in ayodhya .
where pran dha pratistha took place .
pran means life .
pratistha means establishment .
it's the ceremony where the idol is installed inside the temple .
it's been discussed in the media for 24 hours since the last few weeks .
and many controversies have arisen here .
some political parties and four main shankaracharyas did not attend this event .
let's understand these things in today's video .
but along with that , i would like to use this opportunity to discuss the qualities of shri ram in this video .
because it is easy to take the name of ram .
but shri ram's values and values are different .
i have already made two videos on ramayana .
in the first one , i had talked about how some people try to justify ravan .
and in the second one , i had talked about the allegations that are made on ram by some people .
how he had killed shudra shambuk .
how he had left sita ji .
i had presented a lot of evidence that uttarkand is a later edition in ramayana .
i also talked about the history of ramayana .
is ramayana based on a true story or is it just a literary work ?
you can find the links of both the videos in the description below if you haven't seen them .
in this context in today's video i would like to tell you about the qualities of lord ram and how this can change your life .
and this does not matter whether you are a hindu , muslim , sikh , christian , buddhist jain , parsi or atheist .
and as always , i'll quote the sources of the original valmiki ramayana but before going over them , let's talk about this event .
who went to this inauguration ceremony , who didn't and why ?
bjp's senior leaders lk advani and murli manohar joshi they were the biggest leaders of the ram mandir agitation movement since 1990 big leaders .
but he didn't come in this life-saving manner .
the general secretary of the ram temple trust told the reporters that considering their age and age , they were told not to come to this inauguration .
on the other hand , the bollywood celebrities katrina kaif , rohit shetty , ranbir kapoor , alia bhatt were given a special invitation .
many political parties got an invitation but many rejected it for different reasons .
for example , cpim's general secretary , sitaram yachuri said that religion is a personal matter .
i said religion is an individual choice of every individual .
we respect and we safeguard .
he said that the indian constitution and the supreme court has clearly said that the government cannot be affiliated with any particular religion .
so on the basis of secularism , he rejected this invitation .
uddhav thackeray of shiv sena , who got the invitation just 2 days before the event , also through the speedpost .
he rejected it and his party member sanjay raut said that bjp worships ram but the state worships like ravan .
he said that they keep going to ayodhya and will go ahead .
but on this day of 22nd january , he went to kalaram temple in nashik .
that temple where it is believed that lord ram , lakshman and sita ji congress party's leaders were invited but they rejected the invitation saying that the temple is half-finished and it's inauguration is being done .
the main reason behind rejecting this invitation was that bjp is politicizing this event .
in the name of ram , election politics is happening .
some people praised this stance saying that congress took a good decision but on the other hand some people said that it was a political blunder .
but the point of inaugurating this incomplete temple was also raised by shankaracharya .
it's almost 1200 years ago that adi shankaracharya had established four principal mathas in four directions .
these were at uttarakhand , gujarat , karnataka and odisha .
each matha had a chief priest called shankaracharya .
so four mathas , four shankaracharyas .
none of these four did attend this event .
the entire shankaracharya , nishalanda saraswati said that this ceremony was not according to hindu scriptures .
shankaracharya avimuktesh svaranand saraswati , who is the shankaracharya of uttarakhand math , explained this .
avimukte shavraanan saraswati and the flag that is put on the temple is considered to be the hair of god .
so according to them , a body whose eyes are not there , whose head is not there , it is not right to make it live .
they say that it goes against the scriptures .
he could not see the violations of the scriptures in front of his eyes , so he did not go to this ceremony .
but due to one decision of theirs , social media by it cell tried to defame them on social media .
fake news was spread against them and some accounts considered them to be hindu opponents .
e i have told you in previous videos that adi shankracharya's core philosophy was non-duality .
one thing that is repeated in this is aham brahma asmi .
that is , god is present everywhere , in everything .
if god is present in everything , then is he hindu or muslim , brahmin or shudra , all are the example of that one brahma .
so based on adi shankracharya's philosophy , there is no difference if you go to shankracharya masjid or gurudwara or church .
god resides everywhere .
i kya bhraaman kya shudra ?
sab ussi ek brahma ka prati roop hai .
toh aadi shankaracharya ki philosophy ki anusaar isse koi farak nahi padta agar shankaracharya masjid mein jaaing , gurudwara mein jaaing , yaar church mein jaaing .
bhagwaan har jagha baste hain .
but the second point here is that this news was fake .
a person named arvind guru who had gone with shankracharya said that this was not a muslim place .
it was a hindu ashram .
this was the court of ramdev pir , which is considered to be an incarnation of krishna .
this is the photo of that court where ramdev pir is considered to be the incarnation of krishna .
during an interview with karan thapar , shankracharya was asked the same question from swami abhimuktesh varanand saraswati .
he said that he had never been to ajmer , so how can ajmer be decent ?
it cell and godi media have declared pm modi a hindu than shankracharya .
some even call him vishnu's incarnate .
but pm modi has also gone to the dargah .
is he a muslim ?
another fake news spread to defame shankracharya is that he had taken rs .
5 lakhs to inaugurate the dargah .
bhida hindu ghosht kar diya hai .
kuch toh unhe vishnu ka avtar bhi kette hai .
lekin pradhan mantri modi bhi toh dargah gaye hain .
kya wo musalman ban gaye karke ?
ek dosri farji khabar phalaayi gaye in shankracharya ko badnaam karne ke liye ki inonne 5 lakh rupee liye the , iss inauguration ke invitation ko reject karne ke liye .
is khabar me na koi sar tha , na koi pair , na koi sabut .
i'm not a traitor .
will you publish anything ?
you're satisfied with 5 lakhs ?
do you publish such things for your shankracharya ?
and when he asks you about shankracharya , you can't give him any clarity ?
how did you know about 5 lakhs ?
who gave it ?
tell me !
seeing this , shankracharya was surprised himself .
why would he run such fake news without any proof to defame shankracharya ?
one thing is clear from this , friends .
that in this era , if you don't believe in bjp , bjp or pm modi's decision to speak against him in public will be of no use to you .
who is a hindu and who is an anti-hindu ?
to distribute his certificates , or the prime minister , modi , any decision taken by him , if you disagree and speak in front of the public , then you will not be left with any chance of being insulted in defaming you .
who is hindu ?
who is anti-hindu ?
the entire army of these people is standing to distribute its certificates .
and the interesting thing is that they don't care about ram .
they just want to play politics in the name of ram .
if you ask them anything about the principles of ram , they will not have any information .
rajah ke naam ke pehle great ka suffix lagaate hai .
king alexander the great alexander was a ruthless king who killed millions of people .
he killed many tribes at once .
but in contrast to this , there is a story of lord ram in ramayan .
when ram was about to become king , there was a wave of happiness in the entire ayodhya .
but ram's stepmother , kaikeyi , demanded that instead of ram , her son would be the king of bharat .
and ram would have to go to the jungle for 14 years to live .
ioram ki kahanjab ram raaja banneh waale the poori ayodhya nagri mein khushi ki leher thi lekin ram ki sauteli ma kaikeyi ne demand rakh di ki ram ki bajaye unki putrub bharat raaja honge aur ram ko chauda saal ke liye jungle mein vanwaaz ke liye jaana hoga ye sunkar sri ram ka kya reaction tha ?
ayodhya kaan chapter 18 , shlok 41 .
itiv tasya purushram vadantyaam , nachaevaram privishesh shokam .
yaani ki kekayi ke shabdh bahut harsh the .
lekin ram ye sunkar naraz nahi huye .
unhe koi dukh nahi hua is baat ka .

mtak ke liye vanwas ke liye .
ye sunkar bahut se log gusse se bharr uthege .
lekin ram waha par naraz tak nahi hua .
is cheez ko aap compare karo ashok se , jinhone apne bhaiyon ko maar dala sattah paane ke liye .
same cheez aurangzeb ne kari , apne bhai dara shikoh ko maar dala raja banne ke liye .
ayodhya ke log already ram ke support me the .
agar ram chahhte to wo keh sakte ki ye dekho mere saath anyaye ho rha hai .
mera koi kusur nahi hai yaha par , lekin mujhe yaha par b did the same thing .
he killed his brother dara shikoh to become the king .
the people of ayodhya were already in support of ram .
if ram wanted , he could have said that injustice is happening with me .
it's not my fault but i am being sent to the jungle .
if he wanted , he could have become the king by putting kaikeyi and bharat in jail .
but he didn't do that .
it is worth noting that the people of ayodhya were in full support of ram .
it is written in chapter 17 that they wanted to see ram become the king .
and wanted nothing more than that .
and what is the reason behind this ?
shlok 15 says that ram was so virtuous .
he had compassion for everyone .
but ram decided in a very calm and peaceful manner that he would go to the jungle .
chapter 19 , shlok 20 says that what is ram saying to kaikri ?
i don't like wealth , i want to go like a sadhu whose faith is only in his dharma , his morality i want to see this world in love for ram , it didn't mean that the world is at my feet it meant that he could serve the people but today people's behaviour is the opposite people shamelessly say that they are addicted to power there is no problem in falling to any extent to get power i'll support the one who has a chance to win .
the one who wins is the one who loses is the monkey .
in all these statements , power and power are being put on the head .
but i want you to change your perspective .
think for yourself .
who will be the winner here ?
a person who loses all his morality and values to get power or a person who lets the power go without compromising on his morals , values and principles and while doing this , he had no feelings for kk .
chapter 19 , verse 24 , he only complains one thing to kk .
if you wanted to make india the king , why did you tell your father to make you the king ?
chapter 19 , sloke 24 if you have saved your morality and found something , what did you lose ?
if you have lost your morality and found something , what did you find ?
