Ayodhya: Why is the idol of Ramlala installed in the Ram temple dark in colour?

The picture of the idol which has come out today from the Ram temple of Ayodhya, is black in colour. Questions are being raised in the minds of people regarding this idol that why only a dark complexioned idol was selected for the Ram temple of Ayodhya? Let us know why this statue was selected.

The rituals related to the consecration of the idol of Ramlala will start from 12:20 pm on January 22 and will continue till 1 pm. However, before that a picture has surfaced today, about which it is being said that this is the same idol which is kept in the sanctum sanctorum. The height of the idol is 51 inches. Its length with lotus flower is 8 feet and weight is about 150 -200 kg. The idol is made by carving black stone. The statue whose photo has surfaced has been made by sculptor Arun Yogiraj. Actually, three idols of Ramlala have been made, one of which has been made by sculptor Satyanarayan Pandey from Rajasthani rock, while sculptors Ganesh Bhatt and Arun Yogiraj have made two idols from Shyam Rock of Karnataka.

The responsibility of making the idol of Ramlala was entrusted to the famous sculptor of Karnataka, Arun Yogiraj. Arun Yogiraj is the son of the famous sculptor Yogiraj Shilpi and his grandfather was considered to give beauty to the palaces of the Wadiyar family. Arun comes from a family of Mysore palace artists. Arun did not want to become a sculptor like his ancestors. He did MBA from Mysore University in 2008.

The black colored idol of Shri Ram has been made by Arun Yogiraj.

After this he started working for a private company, but his grandfather had predicted that Arun would grow up to become a sculptor. After 37 years, this came true and Arun Yogiraj created a 30 feet high statue of Subhash Chandra Bose, which has been installed at the Amar Jawan Jyoti Sthal at India Gate. Along with this, he has also made the 12 feet high statue of Adi Shankaracharya installed in Kedarnath.

The picture of the statue has been revealed today. This idol is of black colour, due to which questions are being raised in the minds of people as to why a dark colored idol was selected in the Ram temple. It is also said in Ramayana that Lord Shri Ram was of dark complexion and hence it was given more importance. Lord Ram Shyam and Shiva are of Gaur Varna.

It is said in the praise mantra of Lord Shri Ram:

Neelambuj Shyamal Komalangam Sitasamaropit Vambhagam. Panau Mahasayakacharuchapan Namami Ram Raghuvanshnatham.

That is, I salute Shri Ramchandra ji, the lord of the Raghu dynasty, whose limbs are as dark and soft as a blue lotus, in whose left side Sita ji is seated, who has infallible arrows and a beautiful bow in his hands. That means God Shri Ram is of dark complexion.

Whereas in another praise of Mahadev Shiva it is said:

Karpur Gauram Karunavataram Sansara Saram Bhujgendraharam. Sada Basanta Hridayarabinde Bhabam Bhavanisahit Namami.

Which means, the one who has white and bright complexion like camphor, is the embodiment of compassion, is the essence of the world, whose arms are necklace, may Lord Shiva always reside in my heart along with Mother Parvati. According to the praise, it becomes certain that Mahadev Shiva is of Gaur caste.

Mahadev Shiva is worshiper of Lord Shri Ram

Lord Shri Ram is worshiper of Mahadev Shiva and Mahadev Shiva is worshiper of Lord Shri Ram. Due to their mutual feelings, our sages, sages and saints have explained Rameshwaram Tirtha in this way, Ramsya Ishwar: Sa: Rameshwar: That is, the one who is the God of Ram, is Rameshwar. But when Mahadev Shiva narrates the story of Ram to Mother Parvati, then he explains Rameshwaram in this way, Ram Ishvaro Yasya Sah Rameshwarah means the one whose God is Shri Ram, he is Rameshwar. Mahadev and Shri Ram's devotion towards each other is so deep that both of them are colored in each other's colors.

Therefore, according to their experience, some devotees depict Mahadev Shiva with camphor color in blue color and the Lord Shri Ram with blue color in Neelambuj and Shyamal color are depicted as having gaur color. The picture of God is filled according to the emotional state of the picture of devotion, but God will get happiness only when his best creation, man does not even worship his picture, but imbibes his character within himself.
