Ram Mandir: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday replied to President Droupadi Murmu's letter on Ram Mandir 'Pran Pratishtha' saying he has returned with one Ayodhya in his heart that will never go away from him.

The letter reads, "...I undertook Ayodhya Dham's Yatra as a pilgrim. I was overwhelmed with emotions upon reaching the holy land which has such a confluence of devotion and history..."

In his letter, PM Modi said, "Two days ago I received a very inspiring letter from the respected President. Today I have tried to express my gratitude through a letter."

"Ideals of Lord Ram are basis of India's glorious future, their power will pave way for creation of developed India by 2047," PM Modi said.

On Sunday, President Murmu complemented PM Modi ahead of the Pran Pratishtha saying the nationwide celebratory atmosphere around the inauguration of the grand Ram temple in Ayodhya is an uninhibited expression of India's eternal soul and start of a new cycle in the country's resurgence.

In a two-page letter to Prime Minister Modi, the president said that "as you prepare yourself to go for 'Pran Pratishtha' of Prabhu Shri Ram's 'murti' (idol) at the new temple built at his birthplace in Ayodhya, I can only contemplate the unique civilisational journey that will be accomplished with each step taken by you in the hallowed precincts".

Referring to the 11-day rigorous 'anushthan' that the prime minister has undertaken, Murmu said it is not only a sacred ritual but also a supreme spiritual act of sacrifice and submission to Lord Ram.

Sending heartfelt wishes, the president said that the nationwide celebratory atmosphere around the inauguration of the grand temple of Prabhu Shri Ram in Ayodhya Dham is an uninhibited expression of the eternal soul of India.

"We all are fortunate to witness the commencement of a new cycle in the resurgence of our nation," she said.

Murmu said the universal values of Lord Ram such as courage, compassion and constant focus on duty, will be taken closer to the people through this magnificent temple.

"Prabhu Shri Ram signifies the best aspects of our cultural and spiritual heritage. Above all, he represents the good which is in constant battle with evil. His life and principles have influenced many episodes of our history and inspired nation builders," she said.
