Ram Mandir Murti Pran Pratishtha: The statue (murti) has been made in the child form of Shri Ram, which is dark in colour. Let us know what is the secret behind the color of Lord Ram's statue (murti).

Ram Mandir Murti: Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Shri Ram, is shining with the name of Ram. The idol of the Lord is to be consecrated on Monday, 22nd January. The ritual of consecration had started from January 16. The idol has been made in the child form of Shri Ram, which is dark in colour. In such a situation, there is confusion among many people as to why the idol of Lord Shri Ram has been made in black colour. So let us know what is the secret behind the color of Lord Ram's idol-

Why only black colour? The dark form of Lord Shri Ram has been described in Maharishi Valmiki's Ramayana. That is why the Lord is worshiped in the dark form. At the same time, the idol of Shri Ram has been made from Shyam Shila stone. This stone is very special. The age of Shyam Shila is considered to be thousands of years. This is the reason that the idol will remain in good condition for thousands of years and there will be no change in it. At the same time, in Hindu religion, Abhishek is done during worship. In such a situation, the idol will not be harmed even by things like water, sandalwood, roli or milk.

Why was the statue made in the form of a child?
According to beliefs, the child form is worshiped in the birthplace. That is why the idol of Lord Shri Ram has been made in the form of a child.

Life prestige is important
The Prana Pratishtha process means putting life into the idol. Idol worship is not considered complete without consecration of life. To bring life to the idol, gods are invoked by chanting mantras. Therefore, it is considered necessary to consecrate the idol which is worshipped.
