40-kg silver brick for Ram Temple’s bhumi pujan, then it goes into a locker
Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, chairman of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has donated a 40-kilogram silver brick for bhoomi pujan event of Ram Mandir on Wednesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will use this brick to lay the foundation stone of the temple in the groundbreaking ceremony in Ayodhya. However, the brick will be removed after the ceremony.
“Mahant Nritya Gopal Das has donated 40-kilogram silver brick for bhoomi pujan of Ram Mandir on behalf of Mani Ram Das Chhavni Peeth,” said Mahant Kamal Nayas Das, successor designate to Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, chairman of the trust.
Mani Ram Das Chhavni Peeth is the math and the residing place of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das. All prominent religious activities in Ayodhya are operated from this place.
“There is no point in using silver bricks in laying the foundation of Ram Mandir. They will be removed after bhoomi pujan and will be kept in bank lockers of the Trust in State Bank of India,” said Das.
“Later, these silver bricks will be enchased and the money will be used for the construction of Ram Mandir,” Das added.
Several devotees have donated silver bricks to the Trust for the construction of Ram Mandir. All of them will be used for the ceremony on Wednesday and will be removed from Ram Janmabhoomi after the event is over.
