As Ayodhya prepares for the Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha Ceremony, devotees nationwide eagerly anticipate the consecration of Ram Lalla at the grand Ram temple on January 22. For those unable to physically attend, there is an alternative opportunity to worship Lord Ram at home, following the prescribed rituals on this auspicious day.

Guidance for Home Worship of Lord Rama

Devotees are encouraged to create a home temple in the northeast corner, known for its auspicious connotations, ensuring cleanliness, and incorporating necessary puja items.

Puja Essentials

Puja essentials include betel nut, mouli, kumkum, akshat, Ganga jal, water stored in a copper pot, an idol of Lord Ram, desi ghee, incense sticks, sandalwood, flowers, fruits, sweets, camphor, a bell, and a puja thali. Thoroughly cleanse the temple space, discard outdated items, and purify deity images for positive energy.

Puja Rituals

Position the Lord Ram idol on the altar, draped in a red cloth, and initiate the puja with established rituals. Begin with a resolution, illuminate lamps, and offer kumkum, akshat, sandalwood, flowers, fruits, sweets, panchamrit, and kheer. Conclude with aarti, burning camphor, and keep a ghee lamp lit at the entrance in the evening.

Important Considerations

  • Replace Broken Idols: Ensure not to retain any broken idol in the temple.

  • New Idol Introduction: Acquire a new idol and introduce it ceremoniously on January 22, following the auspicious Abhijeet Muhurat.

  • Conduct Jalabhishek: Perform the sacred jalabhishek ritual for the idol during the consecration.

  • Panchamrit Bath: Initiate a panchamrit bath for the idol, adhering to the prescribed methods and rules.

  • Ghee Lamp Tradition: Keep a regular ghee lamp lit in front of the deity throughout the worship.

  • Eastward Worship: Face eastward during the worship ceremonies for auspicious alignment and adherence to traditional practices.

  • Nightly Flower Ritual: Replace the flower garlands offered to the deities every night with fresh ones, maintaining a consistent offering of fresh flowers during the puja.

  • Adornment with Vibrant Flowers: Decorate the Ram Lalla temple with vibrant flowers, ensuring a continuous display of freshness by promptly replacing any faded ones post-puja.
