Surat women inscribe Lord Rama’s name in 21 languages ahead of ‘Pran Pratishta’

On January 22, as the nation celebrates the ‘Pran Pratishta’ ceremony in various ways, these women stand out by linking their pregnancies with the spiritual occasion.

New Delhi: In a heartwarming display of devotion, 42 pregnant women in Surat, Gujarat, have contributed uniquely to the ‘Pran Pratishta’ ceremony of Lord Rama’s deity in Ayodhya.

Ahead of the ‘Pran Pratishta’ ceremony, these expectant mothers inscribed the mantra ‘Jai Shri Ram’ 21 times in 21 different national and international languages, symbolising spiritual connectivity.

Garbh Sanskar counsellor Ameesha Ben, guiding the initiative, explained the profound significance of writing ‘Rama’ 21 times.

“The name ‘Rama’ has been written 21 times in various national and international languages, totaling 441 (21 x 21), and the significance of the number nine is considered extremely auspicious. The birth anniversary of Lord Rama, Ram Navami, falls on the 27th Nakshatra, symbolising nine. This initiative aims to turn the child’s spiritual and emotional level towards God through the language of devotion, the language of Rama, and the medium of vibrations. From Satyug to Kalyug, cremation is done uttering ‘Rama.’ Thus, it is emphasised that without Rama, both the beginning and end are not possible. This work has been undertaken with utmost sincerity for this purpose.” Ameesha Ben said.
