Ayodhya Ram Mandir Prasad To Be Available Online For Free

Devotees across the country are waiting for the grand consecration ceremony that will take place at the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on January 22. The Pran Pratishtha ceremony will see the idol of Lord Ram will be enshrined in the temple. Though thousands of people are travelling to Ayodhya to witness the event, those who can’t physically make it to the ceremony can also get their hands on the maha prasad. 

As per reports, from January 22 onwards, people can book prasad packets at the official mandir website which will deliver the prasad for free. These packets are available for booking anyone who registers on the Mandir Darshan website and shares their address and contact information.

Moreover, the homegrown lifestyle brand Khadi Organic is also taking the initiative to deliver the maha prasad to people’s doorsteps. Their website is offering a packaged version of the organic ‘first day’ prasad at a denoted price which people can order via their website. 

The Prasad, crafted with natural ingredients is being prepared by a UP-based company called Ram Vilas & Sons, which has been tasked with making 5 lakh packets. The cardamom dana prasad is prepared using a special recipe made by mixing cardamom and sugar. Besides the prasad, the website also offers merchandise dedicated to Ram Mandir, including a wooden model of the temple. 

The Khadi Organic site also offers t-shirts, flags, prayer boxes and natural gangaajal dedicated to the ceremony. The pilgrimage spot is expecting a tourist surge that is 8-10 times higher than usual. Recently, Chhatisgarh Chief Minister Vishnu Deo Sai shared that a consignment of 11 trucks bearing 300 metric tons of aromatic rice for the "Ramji Bhog and Bhandara" events in Ayodhya has been released. This rice will be offered to devotees as prasad. Interestingly, Chhattisgarh, which is known as the rice bowl of India is also the ‘nanihal’ or the maternal home of Lord Ram. 

Chandkhuri, situated on the outskirts of Raipur, is the birthplace of Kaushalya Devi, the mother of Lord Ram. It’s believed that Ram spent a portion of his 14-year exile in Chhattisgarh, which is now being developed by the state government as the "Ram Gaman Path." 

Some more milestone initiatives are underway. Around 45 community kitchens in Ayodhya are set to serve free meals to people. Chef Vishnu Manohar is set to make 7,000 kg of Ram Halwa at the temple premises in a custom-made kadhai, and is set to create a world record
