SURYA TILAK OF RAM LALLA

Ayodhya: As the sunrays illuminated the forehead of the Lord Ram Lalla idol at Ayodhya Temple during Ram Navami celebrations on Wednesday, the scores of devotees turned euphoric. Thousands of eyes sparkled with delight, and excitement coursed through every individual present. Devotees at the temple were engrossed in capturing this magical and memorable moment. Similarly, those watching on large LED screens and from the comfort of their homes were equally captivated.

On this auspicious Ram Navami, Ayodhya was adorned beautifully, not just the Janmabhoomi temple but the entire city. This marks the first ‘janmotsav’ of Shri Ram Lalla at his birthplace after a struggle spanning five centuries. Initially, plans were made to conduct a ‘Mahamastakabhisheka’ using sun rays after the temple’s completion. However, sages and saints argued that since Shri Ram Lalla had been established following traditional rituals, all procedures should be adhered to accordingly. With approval from the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, the scientific team from the Central Building Research Institute, Roorkee, began working on realizing the ‘Surya Tilak’ concept.

The task was challenging, requiring precise coordination to direct sun rays from an upper floor onto Ram Lalla’s forehead using specialized equipment, aligning with the earth’s movement. Eventually, the scientists achieved success, and at the scheduled time, a 75 mm sun ray ‘tilak’ appeared on Ram Lalla’s forehead.
