Pujya Morari Bapu to start Ramkatha from 2nd January at Sethubandh-Dhanushkodi
The 853rd Ramkatha by Pujya Morari Bapu will start from 2nd January, 2021 at pilgrimage site – Dhanushkodi, Setubandh-Rameshwar with a limited number of pre-invited audiences. Recently Ramkatha has been successfully completed at Bhagwat Bhumi Shukratal where all Corona related protocols were strictly adhered.
Danushkodi is an ancient and famous Hindu pilgrimage place. It is located on the eastern coast of the state of Tamil Nadu, near the southern edge of Rameswaram and near Pamban. The neighboring country Sri Lanka is just 20 kilometers away from this site. Its history is of Ramayana period. It is said that from here Lord Sri Rama started the construction work of the bridge to reach Lanka.
According to religious texts and beliefs, when Lord Shri Ram started returning with Sita after conquering Lanka, the newly appointed Lankapati Vibhishan prayed to Shri Ram that if this bridge built by you remained like this then in future any king from India will attack my Lanka. At the request of Vibhishan, Shriram Ji broke the bridge. This gave the place its name Dhanushkodi.
This nine-day Ram Katha will be shown daily through the Aastha channel and YouTube from 9:30 am. People are requested to take advantage of Ramkatha by staying in your place while following the Corona Guideline issued by the administration.
