Aippaisi Punarvasu ~ celebrating Sree Rama - ‘பாவமும் அருந்துயரும் வேர் பறியும்’

नचानृतकथो विद्वान् वृद्धानां प्रतिपूजकः । अनुरक्तः प्रजाभिश्च प्रजाश्चाप्यनुरञ्जते ॥

நசாந்ருதகதோ வித்வாந் வ்ருத்தாநாம் ப்ரதிபூஜக: ।

அநுரக்த: ப்ரஜாபிஸ்ச ப்ரஜாஸ்சாப்யநுரஞ்ஜதே ॥

He spoke nothing but truth.  He was learned, but at the same time,  He  was enthusiastic about respecting elders. He was loved by his people and he loved his people.

Mere chanting of the name ‘Sree Rama’ would provide everything to us ~ he is the greatest benefactor ~ the Maryadha Purush ~ the greatest epitome of all virtues Lord Rama.  The greatest of the Ithihasa puranamn * Sri Ramayanam * has had its influence across centuries, countries and cultures -  Maryadha Purush Sri Rama  has illuminated the lives of millions imparting lessons in various spheres - statecraft, conduct, family and societal values.  Pleasant things give happiness to everyone and there cannot be more pleasant sight than that of Sri Rama Pattabishekam ~ the eternal state of bliss- the most complete picture of happiness to everyone in the Kingdom. 

ஜகம் புகழும் புண்ணிய கதை  இராமனின் கதையே !!  நல்வழியில் நின்று உயர்ந்த நாயகனின் தோற்றமாக நிகழ்ந்தது புகழ்மிக்க இராமாவதாரம். அந்த மகத்தான கதையைக் கூறும் செய்யுள்கள் நிறைந்த குற்றமற்ற சிறந்த காவியம் கம்ப இராமாயணம்.  இராமன் முடிசூடப்போகிறான்  என்று கேட்ட மக்களின் மகிழ்ச்சியை கவி சக்கரவர்த்தி கம்ப நாட்டாழ்வார் இவ்வாறு விவரிக்கிறார்.

‘பாவமும் அருந் துயரும் வேர் பறியும்’ என்பார்;

‘பூவலயம் இன்று தனி அன்று; பொது’ என்பார்;

‘தேவர் பகை உள்ளன இவ் வள்ளல் தெறும்’ என்பார்;

‘ஏவல் செயும் மன்னர் தவம் யாவது கொல்?’ என்பார்.

தசரத சக்ரவர்த்தியின் புதல்வன் ஸ்ரீ இராமபிரான்  ஆளப்போவதால் தீ வினைகளும் தீர்த்தற்கரிய துன்பங்களும்  அடியோடு அழியும் என்பார்;  இந்தப் பூமண்டலம் இப்பொழுது  இராமன்  ஒருவனுக்கே தனியுரிமை உடையதுஅன்று,  எல்லார்க்கும் பொதுவுடைமை ஆகும் என்பார்;   தேவர்களுக்குப் பகையாய் உள்ள அரக்கர் கூட்டங்களை இவ் இராமன் அழிப்பான் என்பார்;    இவனுக்குஏவல் செய்யும் அரசர்களது;   நல்வினைதான்  எத்தன்மையதோ  என்பார்.

இராமன் ஆட்சியில் தம் பாவமும் துயரும் தீரும் என்றார் சிலர்;  இராமன் மக்கள்குறைகளைக் கேட்டறிந்து, அவர்கள் தாமே ஆட்சிபுரிந்தால் எவ்வாறு நன்மையைப் பெறலாமோஅவ்வாறு நன்மையைப் பெறச்செய்வான் என்னும் உறுதிப்பாட்டால் ‘பூவலயம் இன்று  தனி அன்று; பொது’ என்றார் சிலர்.  இராமன் ஆளும்போது  தாங்களே ஆளுவதாகக் கருதினர் என்பதாம்.  

At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam the  6th day of Theppothsavam is for Sri Rama Piran – the great Maryadha purush who crossed Ganges in boats driven by Guhan. .. .. On this day, Sri Ramar has purappadu in Pattabisheka thirulokam.  This occurs every year  .. ..  happened in 2020 too.  2021 shall be different – for a grand   ‘bhoomi pujan’ at His janmasthan at  Ayodhya took place with Prime Minister of the Nation Shri Narendra Modi participating.  After the Apex Court verdict, the construction work at the site has gathered pace. Designs and maps for the temple have been laid down while the drilling operations are initiated.    Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra trust which will be overlooking the construction project has said that the temple will have 1,200 pillars in a depth of 200 feet. Further, the temple itself is expected to be 161 feet tall.

The shrine will be built by adhering to the country’s ancient and traditional construction techniques. It will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms and other natural calamities. Notably, “the iron will not be used in the construction of the temple,” the Trust  informed on the micro-blogging site.  Tata Constructions and experts from Larsen & Turbo attended a meeting organised. This was the first meeting in which Tata engineers took part. According to reports, Tata Group may be roped in for the construction of the Ram temple. Technical experts also gave a detailed presentation about the blueprint for building state-of-the-art and a grand Ram Temple, whose grandeur remains unmatched globally.  After the ‘bhoomi pujan’, paperwork regarding construction, map, designs, and ownership was filed, the report said. The Ayodhya Development Authority (ADA) received a 4,000-page document that had the proposed map of the temple’s architecture. As per the proposal, the site is covering 2,74,110 square metres (67 acres). The structure is claimed to be approved for fire and electricity safety, and earthquake-resistant measures.

Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has sought suggestions and ideas to develop a 70-acre campus surrounding Ram Temple in Ayodhya. While temple design, the main structure, being built in traditional Nagara style has been designed by specialist consultants, it is for the facilities surrounding the temple for which Teerth Kshetra Trust has sought suggestions.   This has been done after the trust members met and deliberated on the progress of temple construction in Ayodhya earlier this week. The trust has sought suggestions and designs from people on a voluntary basis who would like to be associated with the temple for facilities like Pushkarni, Yagya Mandapam, Anushthan Mandapam, Kalyan Mandapam and for the celebration of rituals like Ramjanmotsava, Hanuman Jayanti, Ramcharcha, Sita Vivaha.  These (designs) should be based on Vaastu or Sthapatya Veda, known as Indian Science of Architecture,” reads the advertisement by the trust. It also seeks designs for a Gurukul with residential facilities for 51 students and their acharyas. For existing historic sites at the spot like Nal Neel Tila, Sita ki Rasoi, Kuber Tila and Angad Tila, designs have been called to integrate it with the main structure and its surroundings. The trust also seeks designs for visitor facilitation amenities “for approximately 1 lakh visitor per day on an average and 5 lakh visitors on peak days”.  It also seeks designs for Shri Ram Digital Library and Research Centre along with a museum showcasing multimedia platforms, virtual reality, augmented reality that shall depict the essence of Ramayana with a complete itinerary and an auditorium and convention centre with a capacity of 1,000 to 5,000 persons. Designs for a mini theatre with an audiovisual experience of Ramkatha and pilgrimage spots around Ayodhya can be showcased too have been sought. The trust also plans to build a gaushala and residential facility for trust recognised VIPs and priests.

The trust had on August 20 had said that the construction of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir has “begun” and the engineers are now testing the soil at the site. According to the Trust, the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple will be built by adhering to the country’s ancient and traditional construction techniques. It will also be built to sustain earthquakes, storms and other natural calamities.
