Amid objection by Jyotishmath Shankaracharya Avimukteshwarananda Saraswati to the upcoming consecration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Sri Sri Ravishankar of Art of Living on Wednesday said there are many instances of temples being built after the ‘Pran Pratishtha‘ of the idol.
Ravishankar said the Shankaracharyas belong to one school of thought but there are other provisions, allowing construction of temples even after the ‘Pran Pratishtha‘.
“There are other provisions where you can keep building the temple after the prana pratishtha. At Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu, Lord Rama himself did prana prathishta of a Shivalinga. That time there was no temple. He didn’t have time to build a temple. He did prana pratishta and later the temple was built,” he said.
