Shree Ram Mandir 2024

Chicago, IL – January 16, 2024 – The Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) is gearing up for the momentous Shri Ra Lalla Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya on January 22, 2024. In a remarkable community outreach effort, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) is actively connecting with the Hindu community in the United States, organizing a series of impactful events to celebrate the rich cultural and spiritual heritage that binds Hindus worldwide.

To raise awareness about the historical significance of the ceremony, VHPA has orchestrated a series of five webinars. These sessions delve into the 500-year long Hindu struggle to reclaim their dharmic site from Islamic invaders, focusing on the archaeological evidence supporting the existence of the Hindu mandir beneath the so-called Babri Masjid, and the legal case that was eventually settled in the Indian Supreme Court in favor of the Hindu community. The webinars have successfully reinstated the undeniable historical truth, paving the way for a renewed connection with Shri Ram Lalla Mandir.

Further emphasizing the global resonance of this cultural renaissance, VHPA has curated a special edition of “Ramayan Around the World” Exhibition. Featuring over 30 artworks, the exhibition highlights the profound impact of Shri Ram’s legacy in various countries. This showcase serves as a testament to the enduring cultural influence of Bharat around the world, echoing the words of Chinese ambassador Hu Shih: “India conquered and dominated China culturally for twenty centuries, without ever having to send a single soldier across the border.”

Another important component of VHPA’s outreach strategy is a special Swagatam (Welcome) Song dedicated to Shree Ram Agaman by Shri Vinod Ji. The song has gone viral on platforms like YouTube and other social media, resonating with audiences worldwide and creating a wave of anticipation for the Pran Pratishtha ceremony.

In a grand display across 15 states in the United States, more than 100 billboards have been commissioned to announce the consecration ceremony in Ayodhya. From Texas to Illinois, New York to California, these billboards serve as beacons, guiding the Hindu community to come together and witness the historic moment on January 22, 2024.

In a show of unity and harmony, Hindu organizations across the United States have organized numerous car rallies involving thousands of vehicles. Rally participants from Boston on the East Coast to the Bay Area on the West Coast have displayed their exuberance, showcasing the deep civilizational connection they share with the revitalization of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. The rallies serve as a powerful expression of the diaspora’s collective joy and pride in this momentous occasion.

Washington DC, Chicago, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Houston, San Francisco, Cincinnati, and many more cities have witnessed the enthusiasm of hundreds of participants in these rallies. As the momentum grows, plans for additional rallies are already in the works, with an expected participation of over 5000 vehicles in the near future.

Over 800 temples, out of approximately 1125 across the United States, have already registered with VHPA on to virtually participate in the consecration ceremonies on the morning of January 22, 2024, in Bharat. This widespread engagement underscores the deep spiritual connection that Hindu communities across the United States feel with the sacred event in Ayodhya.

As the countdown to the Pran Pratishtha ceremony continues, VHPA remains committed to fostering unity and pride within the Hindu community, both in the United States and around the world. The cultural revival and global celebration surrounding the consecration of Shri Ram Lalla Mandir in Ayodhya serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations to come.
