  • Ambedkar 59th Death Anniversary 0n December 6, 2014: Mahaparinirvan Diwas observed at Parliamentary House Lawns.

Sri Ramajanmabhoomi: Our history along with our culture and civilization is as old as rivers and mountains, goes back to thousands of years. One thousand years back there was no England, no France, no Germany and no United States either. As such almost on every day an important event took place in long history of India. Today is December 6th 2014, full moon day happens to be birth day of Sri Dattetreya, another incarnation of Vishnu who was born

as one of three sons to Anasuya and her husband sage Atri. This was eons back; also more recently another event took place 22 years back, on Dec 6, 1992 in Ayodhya, place of yet another incarnation of Sri Vishnu as Sri Rama.

Naturally given the prosperity of the society, devotional ethos of our people a magnificent temple at the site marked Sri Rama’s birth place, Sri Ramajanmabhoomi. According to some of plaques that got unearthed there, Yudhishtara built a temple there which was 5,000 years back. Subsequently the temple saw renovations and rebuilding as time went by. Later Babur built the controversial Mosque demolishing the temple. As per the District Gazetteer (Englishman) Faizabad 1905, ” Till 1855, Hindus used to worship in the  building. But after the Sepoy Mutiny or First war of Independence (1857), an outer enclosure was put up in front of the Masjid and the Hindus forbidden access to the inner yard. So the Hindus made the offerings on a platform (chabootra), which they have raised in the outer yard.

Swami Vivekananda observed, we can learn much about our history if we just follow the saga of our temples. Their rise and fall directly mirrors rise and fall of our Nation, culture and religion. What happened to Somanath tells us much about last 1000 years and what happened in Ayodhya tells us much about last 500 years.

The Hari-Vishnu Inscription found at the site of Shri Ran Janmbhoomi- More than  260 other Hindu artefacts were recovered on Dec 6,1992 the day of demolition controversial domes, all pointing clearly that the structure was built by using the same material . The inscription on the huge stone slab has 20 lines, 30 shlokas (verses), and is composed in Sanskrit written in the Nagari Lipi script.  The message was deciphered by a team comprising epigraphists, Sanskrit scholars, historians and archaeologists. “Line 15 of this inscription clearly tells us that –

A beautiful temple of Vishnu-Hari, was built with heaps of stones and beautified with a golden spire unparalleled by any other temple built by earlier kings… This wonderful temple was built in the temple-city of Ayodhya situated in Saketamandala.

In 1992, after the Babri riots, there was a Govt excavation at the site, monitored by the Muslims. They found that the mosque was indeed built on the foundations of a grand Hindu temple, using the same material. They found a

Sanskrit an inscription on a thick stone slab. The twenty-first verse in Sanskrit says the following; “For the salvation of his soul the King, after paying his obeisance at the little feet of Vamana Avatar, went about constructing a wondrous temple for Vishnu Hari (Shri Rama) with marvelous pillars and structure of stone reaching the skies and culminating in a superb top with a massive sphere of gold and projecting shafts in the sky – a temple so grand that no other King in the

History of the nation had
