Lucknow: The whole country is anxious for Bhoomi Pujan to be held on 5 August in Ayodhya. In the meantime, that incident of Tretayug is seen coming alive in the minds of the Ayodhya residents, when for the first time the foundation of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple was laid by Maharaj Kush, son of Lord Shri Ram. The saint says that Modi is now Maharaj Kush. As Ayodhya was devastated by the departure of Sri Ram along with Divyadham, King Kush of Kushavati (Kaushambi) came and settled Ayodhya. In the same way, not only the people of Ayodhya but the whole world have been looking forward to the much-awaited Ramayana scene.
Mahant Prasadacharya says According to Ramayana Kush had built a temple with 84 pillars on the birthplace. The criterion for which the 84 pillars were installed in the temple also has mythological stories. Jagatguru Sriramdineshacharya says that these pillars were prepared by Vishwakarma on the instruction of Maharani Anaranyaka of Ikshvaku dynasty, ancestor of Lord Rama. But after this Ravana defeated Anaranyak and looted the whole of Ayodhya and took these divine pillars in the palace to Lanka. Subsequently, Hanuman Ji brought Ayodhya after the Ram-Ravana war. From this pillar, Kush built a grand temple at Sriram's birthplace, where the idol of Prabhurama's child form was installed on the auspicious occasion of Chaitra Shukla Ramnavami.
Further, they say that even today there is a pillar in Hanumangarhi in the form of a symbol. It is said that Hanuman brought it from Lanka. The priest of Hanumangarhi, Rajudas, says that now after millions of years, PM Narendra Modi has to play the role of Maharaj Kush. Retired IAS Nripendra Mishra will have to show bravery, intelligence and valour. The grandeur of the temple rests on his shoulder. With the grace of Adi Shilpi Vishwakarma, Chandrakant Sompura and his sons Nikhil and Ashish will have to work hard. Bhoomi Pujan to be held on 5 August will be historic.
