‘What does the birth of Shri Ram mean?’ answers Pujya Bhaishri in the Kolkata Ram Katha

A divine Ram katha was organised by the Purvanchal Nagarik Samiti from 15th December to 23rd December 2012 in the holy city of penance of Shri Ramkrishna Paramhansdevji and in the refuge of Maa Kali, Kolkata.
On the first day, a grand Shobha Yatra commenced from the temple of Rani Sati. Thousands of devotees joined this Shobha Yatra chanting Hari naam as it wended its way through the streets of Kolkata city. The Pothiji was warmly welcomed at the katha venue of Chitrakut Dham. Thereafter, the chief host of the katha, Shri Shyamsunderji Agrawal and his family performed the ritual worship of Shri Ram Charit Manas.
Pujya Bhaishri invoked Shri Hanumanji and began narrating the Ram katha. He said, “Ram katha is the Bhagirathi (Shri Gangaji) that purifies and results in the wellbeing of the soul on batheing in it. Shri Tulsidasji wrote Shri Ram Charit Manas with selfless devotion and narrated it to his own mind to attain internal bliss. This in return spread happiness to the whole world. Shri Ram Charit Manas is the mirror of our life.”
The birth of Shri Ram was celebrated with great joy and mirth on the third day of the katha. Pujya Bhaishri said that the birth of Shri Ram means to have a good conduct in life. We will only experience the bliss of Shri Krishna’s leelas if we have good conduct in our life. The wedding of Shri Ram was also celebrated with great fanfare.

The president of Purvanchal Nagarik Samiti, Shri Surendraji Bajaj and other committee members worked very hard and with dedication to make this a delightful and fruitful katha.
