Mahavir Temple’s Sacred Offering: 10 Crore Rupees, Golden Bow, and Culinary Devotion for Ram Temple Construction

Ram Temple

Patna :  The Mahavir Temple in Patna has pledged a staggering 10 crore rupees towards the construction of the Ram Temple, following the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict on November 9, 2019. This resolute commitment underscores the unwavering faith and dedication of the Mahavir Temple towards the realization of the sacred abode of Lord Rama.

A Historic Offering: 10 Crore Rupees in Devotion

Nripendra Misra, the Chairman of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, will be the recipient of the final installment of this noble contribution, a sum of 2 crore rupees, scheduled to be handed over on January 19, 2024. This act of philanthropy exemplifies the temple’s steadfast commitment to the construction of the Ram Temple, a cause that resonates deeply with millions of devotees across the nation.

Mahavir Temple’s Unparalleled Support

Acharya Kishor Kunal, the Secretary of the Mahavir Temple Trust, reveals that this significant contribution is not a one-time affair. In 2020, on the very day the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust’s account was inaugurated, the Mahavir Temple extended its initial support with a generous donation of 2 crore rupees. Subsequently, in the years 2021, 2022, and 2023, continuous financial backing was provided, reaffirming the temple’s unswerving commitment to the cause.

Golden Bow: An Emblem of Divinity

In proximity to the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, the Mahavir Temple will bestow a unique and divine gift upon Lord Rama—a 2.5-kilogram golden bow, known as the ‘Dhanush.’ This majestic offering, intricately crafted by a specialized Chennai-based company, holds both spiritual and aesthetic significance. Acharya Kishor Kunal elucidates that this Dhanush, adorned with a golden base, will be presented to Lord Rama on January 19, 2024, marking a sacred moment in the history of devotion.

Precious Artistry: Swarnajadit Kodand

Additionally, the Mahavir Temple has commissioned a special creation—a 2.5-kilogram gold-plated Kodand (bow). This unique Kodand, also crafted by the same Chennai-based company, adds a touch of opulence to the spire of the Amawa Ram Temple. The gold used in this exquisite piece was procured from the Government of India’s MMTC, further enriching the spiritual aura of the sacred site.

Ram Rasoi: A Culinary Offering

Not only devoted to financial contributions and symbolic gifts, the Mahavir Temple has also inaugurated the ‘Ram Rasoi’ within the premises of the Amawa Ram Temple. Starting from December 1, 2019, and operating two shifts from January 20, 2024, this kitchen of devotion serves as a divine culinary haven for the pilgrims and devotees visiting the Ram Temple. Operated by the Mahavir Temple, it offers nine varieties of pure vegetarian dishes, following the revered Bihari culinary style, free of cost.

Acharya Kishor Kunal proudly asserts that the ‘Ram Rasoi’ is solely sustained by the Mahavir Temple’s revenue, with no financial assistance sought from either Ayodhya or Patna.

The Pinnacle of Devotion

In conclusion, the Mahavir Temple’s unwavering commitment to the construction of the Ram Temple stands as a testament to the confluence of faith and opulence. The significant financial contributions, the sublime gifts, and the self-sustaining ‘Ram Rasoi’ collectively paint a picture of unparalleled devotion and service. As the golden bow graces the sanctum of Lord Rama, it symbolizes not just an offering, but a profound gesture of devotion etched in gold.
