UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has called Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram a symbol of Indianness. Describing the life character of Shri Ram as a reflection of humanity, he said that the one who sent him to Rama got the same speed. Chief Minister Yogi was releasing Ram (four volumes) in Indian languages, a book published by Ayodhya Shodh Sansthan, at his official residence on Friday.
In the ceremony, he said that whether Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world or countries like Thailand and South Korea, Ram is everywhere. Everyone has happily accepted the glory of Rama. We are familiar with Ram Katha, know all its characters, dialogues, yet every year when Ramlila is staged, everyone watches each and every incident with full devotion and connects itself.
When the Ramayana serial was telecast on Doordarshan during the Corona period, its TRP created many records. This is the glory of Rama. Whenever Ram is seen, read and understood, every time the mind is illuminated with new energy.
Yogi said that religion is an eternal system. The system upon which the society rests. Worship methods can vary. But religion is the same. The CM said on the wonderful effort of Ayodhya Shodh Sansthan and Vani Prakashan to publish Ram Katha in Indian languages by compiling a compilation of Ram Katha in 17 languages and told that very soon Global Encyclopedia of Ram will also be available.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Speaker Hriday Narayan Dixit said that till some time ago some people who used to insult Ram by calling him a fictional character, today there is a competition among them to cut the ticket to Ayodhya.
Not every one of them got tired of calling themselves the biggest devotee of Ram. Dixit said that Ram is the soul of India. We have life, we have wisdom. Without Ram, humanity cannot be imagined. He also congratulated everyone on the publication of the book.
