Before noon, baby Ram brought to the shrine with the chanting of Vedic Mantras
Yogesh Pandey welcomed baby Ram with Ram Stuti, sounds of bells and conch. This turned the environment in the shrine very pious and spiritual. The beautifully decorated baby Ram was placed in the cradle. Devotees enjoyed rocking baby Ram’s cradle.
