कौशल्या के राम से है छत्तीसगढ़ का गहरा नाता: आज भी लोग भांजे में देखते हैं प्रभु राम की छवि

Lord Shri Ram, son of Mata Kaushalya, a symbol of Chhattisgarh’s identity, has a deep relationship in the form of nephew. A living example of this is, in Chhattisgarh, people of all caste communities treat the son of a sister as the image of God, that is, nephew. Prabhu prays to Shri Ram for attainment of salvation. It becomes even more powerful when, wherever the village-city-town, be it of any caste or community, the relationship between maternal uncle-nephew is played with full affinity. This relationship of a nephew with the mother is sometimes seen in a closer form for the parents than the son. In Tretayuga, when the ancient name of Chhattisgarh was known as Kosal and Dandakaranya, then the king of Kosala was Bhanumanta. According to Valmiki Ramayana, Kosala King Bhanumanta was also invited to Ayodhya on the occasion of the coronation of Ayodhyapati Yuvraj Dasharatha. On this occasion, the daughter of the king of Kosala and princess Bhanumati had also gone to Ayodhya. Yuvraj Dasaratha was fascinated by the beautiful and gentle form of the Kosala princess, Bhanumati, and proposed marriage to King Bhanumanta, the king of Kosala. There was a marital affair between the prince Dasaratha and the princess of Kosala, Bhanumati. After marriage, being the princess of Kosal region, Bhanumati came to be called Kaushalya. Maryada Purushottam Lord Shri Ram was born from the womb of this Kaushalya, the queen of Ayodhya. Only then, considering Mamtamayi Mata Kaushalya as sister, the people of the erstwhile Kosal state consider their sister’s son Lord Shri Ram as a symbol and take blessings by touching his feet. Later in Chhattisgarh, the grand temple of Mata Kaushalya built in the eighth-ninth century, the capital Raipur. Arang is located in the village Chandkhuri of Vikaskhand, 27 km away. Chandkhuri also directly connects Chhattisgarh with Ramayana. In Canto 13 Verse 26 of Balkand of Ramayana, there is a mention of Chandkhuri, a village under Arang development block. It is believed that hundreds of years ago, Chandkhuri was known as Chandrapuri i.e. the city of the gods. In course of time, Chandrapuri became Chandrakhuri, which is the Apabhramsha of Chandrapuri. From the mythological point of view, the ruins of this temple are believed to be from the 8th to 9th centuries of the Somvanshi period. Apart from this, the name of Ram is settled in Chhattisgarhi culture. That’s when when meeting each other, whether in a relationship or an unfamiliar Ram-Ram Kaka, Ram-Ram Kaki, Ram-Ram Bhaiya, greetings are generally seen and heard. The holy of village Chandkhuri of Chhattisgarh The rare temple of Mother Kaushalya, mother of Lord Shri Ram in the land, is the only temple in the country and in the world. It is a symbol of the proud pride of Chhattisgarh. Spreading the unique shade of nature, the Vatsalya idol of Lord Shri Ram in child form in the lap of Mother Kaushalya in the sanctum sanctorum of this temple easily attracts the minds of devotees and devotees. On the other hand, in the Shivrinarayan area of ​​Mahanadi, the confluence of the Jonk river and Shivnath river in eastern Chhattisgarh, the Ramnami community reflects the immense love and worship of Lord Shri Ram. It is a memorable fact that the oldest name of Chhattisgarh was Dakshin Kosal. During the Ramayana period, most of Chhattisgarh came under the Dandakaranya region. This area was called Dakshinapatha in those days. There is evidence of the arrival of Lord Shri Ram Chandra ji during the exile period by the researchers. According to the information received from the research books of the researchers, out of the 14 years of his exile, Lord Shri Ram had spent more than 10 years in Chhattisgarh. In the folk songs of Chhattisgarh, descriptions of the agony of Goddess Sita, the geography and flora of Dandakaranya are also found. Lord Shri Ram is believed to have entered South India after entering Chhattisgarh from North India and spending four months at various places here. That is why Chhattisgarh is also called Dakshinapath. To save these memorable facts and arrival of Lord Shri Ram, Chhattisgarh has taken the journey path of Shri Ram and wherever Lord Shri Ram, Lord Shri Laxman and Mother Sita have spent time, The Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel has taken the initiative to develop it as a Ram-Van-Gaman-tourism circuit starting from Mata Kaushalya temple at Chandkhuri, saving the memories of the places where he rested and offered prayers. The grand inauguration of which is going to be done by the Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel on the first day of Navratri on 7th October. This will definitely increase the respect of the faith of the countrymen. This is a big remarkable and historic step of Shri Bhupesh Sarkar. The construction of Ram-Van-Gaman-Path will surely bring national and international fame. At the same time, the decision to develop Ram Van Gaman circuit as a tourist circuit will also be an effective effort in the direction of providing employment. According to various research publications, Lord Shri Ram visited about 75 places during his exile in Chhattisgarh. Out of which there are 51 places where Shri Ram stayed and spent some time during the tour.

According to the intention of Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel, the construction of a grand and attractive temple has been done keeping the original form of Mata Kaushalya temple intact.

It will be unveiled by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. For the Ram Van Gaman tourism circuit, a budget provision of Rs 5 crore was made by the state government last year and Rs 10 crore this year.
