On the occasion of the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of Lord Ram Lalla in Ayodhya, the Shri Mahalakshmi Jagdamba Mandir at Maharashtra’s Koradi began preparing 6,000 kg of halwa in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
The initiative, Mr Fadnavis said, has been taken up under the leadership of Maharashtra Legislative Council Member Chandrashekhar Bawankule and renowned Chef Vishnu Manohar has taken up this initiative.
“Today at Nagpur’s historic Koradi mandir, 6,000 kg halwa is being prepared as prasad to mark Lord Ram’s arrival in Ramjanbhoomi and the Pran Pratishtha event of Lord Ram Lalla. Chandrashekhar Bawankule has led this initiative and renowned Chef Vishnu Manohar has taken this up,” the Deputy Chief Minister said speaking to reporters at Nagpur on Monday.
“The world’s largest kadahi, called Hanuman Kadahi has been specially made for this initiative,” Mr Fadnavis said.
Mr Fadnavis added that ingredients weighing 7,000 kg were being used to prepare the halwa.
“Though 6,000-kilo halwa is being made, the ingredients weigh 7,000 kilos. This will set a new record of preparing prasad,” he said.
The Deputy Chief Minister also said that the kadhi will be sent to Ayodhya after seven days and prasad will be prepared in it for Shri Ram Lalla.
“After seven days this kadahi will be sent to Ayodhya and prasad will be made in it for Shri Ram Lalla. I would like to request everyone to have this prasad in the afternoon,” he said.
Meanwhile, devotees from across the country are eagerly awaiting the grand occasion of Ram Lalla’s Pran Pratishtha in Ayodhya, which will begin in a few minutes.
