Udupi: Puri Swamiji desires Ram Mandir as magnificent as Rashtrapati Bhavan

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (HB/SP) 

Udupi, Nov 29: Sri NIshchalananda Saraswati Swamiji of Puri Govardhan Peetam expressed the wish that the proposed Ram Mandir at Ram Janma Bhoomi will be as big and magnificent as that of Rashtrapati Bhawan. 

During an interaction with the media and other organizations held at the residence of BJP leader, Suvardhan Nayak, at Manchi near here on Thursday November 28, the Swamiji said that in some countries there are more than one presidential mansions but India has only one, which is spread over 900 acres of land. "Ayodhya was the capital of the country since the times of Ikshwaku dynasty. It was a global level administrative centre. Therefore, Ram Mandir at Ayodhya should come up in 900 acres of land," he demanded.


He said he has undertaken tour to protect existence of Hindus and their ideals, and united India is his goal. He expressed the wish that the country will have a cultured, well-educated society that is rest assured of peace and safety. 

"Ayodhya falls within the jurisdiction of Puri Shankaracharya religious order where we are against allotting land for construction of mosque. Secularism should not be thrust upon religious matters. During the past discussions when a compromise was stuck on Ayodhya, I had not signed it. Even now I have not approved allotment land for the mosque," he narrated. 

He asked people of other faiths to make changes in the way they live like Parsis did. He pointed out that both Pakistan and Bangladesh have been posing problems for India. It would be a tricky situation if terrorists get deep-rooted in Varanasi and Mathura, he explained. 

He recalled that a statue of a British viceroy that had been installed at Delhi had been vacated by the Congress government in the past. He therefore argued that there is no need for a mosque dedicated to Babar in India. 

The Swamiji said that it was wrong to project Gandhiji as a religious leader and implement the secularism principles he preached. He insisted that the fact that Hindus are liberal should not be misused by others. He pointed out that Odisha high court and Supreme Court have ordered religious procedures at Jagannath Mandir at Puri to be conducted as per the guidance provided by Puri Shankaracharya. "Hence, we will implement this order soon," he added. 

Puri Swamiji said that no political party has patronized his Math and that all the governments are scheming against the Math. To a question, he expressed himself against the appointment of Muslim as professor for Sanskrit department of Benaras Hindu University, arguing that Sanskrit teaching has it its own rules. 

Office bearers of reception committee were present along with the Swamiji at the interaction.

    They should build the new Ram Mandir grander than the Rastrapathi Bhawan. This will be a new Pilgrimage/ Tourist destination for generations to come. People should go and visit the Ram Mandir directly after visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra. There should also be a high speed train connectivity between Delhi-Agra-Ayodhya-Mumbai-Rajasthan-Delhi. The new Pentagon. The existing design of the Ram Mandir is a little hasty and small just to satisfy a few factions. The Government should collaborate with the best Architects from across the world who are famous in designing temples.

    Already Krishna Mandir is there at Udupi? You want to see Rama and Krishna fight there ? Why Jealous of Gods ??

    It is not the question. The question is - Is India don't have enough temples now ? Putting money on any religious entity is a waste of Money. Our ancestors did a great job by building architecturally beautiful, magnificent, peace and happiness serving places. They are enough. We have to concentrate on other ares where they were not put their hands on.
    Ancestors built STRONG houses for Gods keeping their houses weak. We have to put our efforts in finding problems like - Agricultural uplift, Avoiding the great wastage of Urban Youth Energy and other modern challenges...

    Religious places are enough.... Salutes for them... Any benefit of stashed gold at Temples from centuries.... How Indians are Intelligent ?

    Exactly. BJP must allot 900 acres land for the temple and 900 crores for the building. You are absolutely right Samiji.
