Rai on the Extreme Left Extending Ram Mandir Pran Pratistha Pujan Invite to PM Modi

Rai was among the few people who went to extend an invite to PM Modi for the Pran Pratishtha Pujan of the Ram Mandir.

He also clarified the issue of who was building Ram Lalla’s new idol. He shared that the idol was being built in black stone by Chandresh Pandey, a sculptor from Jaipur.

#NOTE: A Pran Pratistha Pujan is the process of consecrating a deity in a temple. It is believed that after the puja, the deity resides in the temple as a living God and not just as an idol. It is different than Bhumi Pujan which is done before the construction of a temple, house or place of business.
