Jamnagar City News - Akhand Non Stop Ram dhun Bala Hanuman Temple

Non Stop Ram Dhun completes 45 years in Jamnagar City

Jamnagar also known as “Chhoti Kashi” has something to cheer about with its record-setting `Shri Bala Hanuman’ temple located near Lakhota Lake in the heart of Jamnagar city. Its Akhand Ram Dhun today completes 45 years of non-stop recital.

This record of Ram dhun began on the very day when the temple was consecrated on August 1,1964 by late Sant Prembhikshuji Maharaj at 7.30pm. It was the maharaj and his handful of devotes who uttered the famous first line of akhand Ram dhun “Shri Ram Jay Ram Jay Jay Ram” in the first ever utterances during its never ending marathon journey.

Akhand Ram dhun after completing its 45th year today evening is entering its 46th year tomorrow(August 1, 2009).

Singing paeans of Lord Ram also involves mind-boggling statistics. From the day it started on August 1,1964 until the end of Friday today it has been recited incessantly 47,30,40,000 times in a span of 16,435 days totalling 45 years.

Twice the Shri Bala Hanuman temple found its pride of place in the Guinness Book of Records during 1982 and 1988 for this achievement.

It is amazing that in a minute where 20 dhuns are sung by the ever rotating assembly of devotees works out to be 1,200 in an hour and 28,800 in a day spiraling to 1,05,12,000 in 365 days or 47,30,40,000 in 45 years to the end of this day.

What is indeed surprising is that the Ram dhun had never ceased even during natural calamities like cyclones, famine or earthquakes or during wars.

The Bala Hanuman temple`s trustee Jaysukhbhai Gusani said that the ‘Maha aarti’ will be of 46 lamps to be lit later tomorrow evening (August 1, 2009) to commemorate the non-stop singing of Ram dhun as it enters its 46th year.

He said with Maharajshri`s blessings the Akhand Ram dhun continues in other cities as well like Porbandar where it began on May 12, 1967, Dwarka(December 12,1967), Muzzaffarpur in Bihar (January 20,1976), Rajkot(April 22,1984), Junagadh(August 15,1996) and in Mahuva of Bhavnagar district(April 22,1997).

Over 40 NDMF personnel have been involved in rescue and relief activities in Porbandar district, where several villages have been marooned by floods.

The personnel also distributed food packets to people in marooned Gosa, Madhavpur, Chikasa and Rajpur villages in the district through helicopters.

"Rescue operations have started and we have distributed 40,000 food packets. We have also distributed 50,000 packets through two helicopters, which have been put in to use.

In Porbandar city, 20 pumps of 920 horsepower have been installed to dewater marooned areas," said M.B. Parmar, collector Porbandar district.

The State authorities have also dispatched medical teams to the areas.

Over 3,000 families in Junagadh, Porbandar and Jamnagar districts have been shifted to safer places.

According to sources heavy rains have led to overflowing of almost all the dams in the Jamnagar region, leading to flooding in the nearby areas.

The water has also inundated the roads, culverts and bridges, disrupting transport and cutting off the region from rest of the state.

Agricultural lands with sown crops have been badly damaged. The overall losses caused by the heavy downpour are estimated to be millions of rupees.
