PM Modi Story
On January 22, 2024 Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will officially inaugurate the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. This day will mark an end to the 500-year-old struggle of the Hindu nation which required the courage and determination to fight this long and hard battle for truth and justice. A battle for their Ram Lalla.
Within these struggles, there was one man whose faith was static, who always believed that Ram Mandir will be built on the same site where Bhagwan Ram was born. That person was Shri Narendra Modi.
Here is an anecdote from the time when members of Shri Ramjanmabhumi Tirth Kshetra went to meet PM Shri Narendra Modi to invite him for the grand event on January 22. Swami Govind Dev Giri, member of the Trust narrates this incident and calls it an epitome of humility from PM Shri Modi.
“We were given a time of 5.15 pm for the meeting and to everyone’s surprise PM Shri Modi himself was standing at the door to welcome the trust members,” says Swami Govind Dev Giri.
The discussion between Trust members and Shri Modi started after exchange of greetings. We informed Shri Narendra Modi that we were there to invite him for Ram Mandir inauguration on January 22, 2024. We also expressed our view that we needed suggestions from him about the program. But PM Shri Modi said that Shri Ramjanmabhumi Tirth Kshetra is organizing this event and the Trust members are here to invite me for the program, therefore, only the saints will decide the programs to be organized at the event. Shri Modi also said that he will only follow the instructions given by saints at the event, adds Swami Govind Dev Giri.
“Normally, we don’t witness such humility from everyone. People suggest as per their convenience, but Shri Modi has this intuition to understand what the Ram Mandir Trust has decided for him,” Swami Govind Dev Giri further added.
To expect such respect towards saints and this sort of humility from a person who is atop the political system of the country is very rare and this is why PM Shri Modi is loved by all, adds Swami Govind Dev Giri.
There is another aspect that is worth mentioning here. There has been a constant urge from PM Shri Narendra Modi to make this Ram Mandir a centre of social inclusion.
“In one meeting, Shri Modi suggested that Maharshi Valmiki and Vashishth, Shabari, Nishadraj, Jatayu, Ahilya and others are integral part of Shri Ram’s life and they must get a place within the Ram Mandir,” says Swami Govind Dev Giri.
This vision by PM Shri Modi is a thought that would unite the nation as it includes every section of the society, opined Swami Govind Dev Giri.
PM Shri Modi was very particular about the access of Divyang people in the Ram Mandir. He had suggested for a system that would give such people hassle-free access to the temple.
Who would have the access to the Garbh Grih of the Ram Mandir was another concern that was raised by Shri Modi. He also suggested to have a system in place like Somnath Ji, where only priests are allowed inside the Garbh Grih.
All these suggestions came from Shri Modi himself, says Swami Govind Dev Giri.
