02/7​Deposition on behalf of Ram Lalla

In 2003, Guru Ramabhadracharya served as an expert witness in the Allahabad High Court, defending Lord Ram as he was posed as an infant, or Ram Lalla. The case regarding Ayodhya’s disputed site was the one in order. Citing Hindu scriptures and Tulasidasa’s works, Guru ji refuted the opposition’s claims, ultimately influencing the 2010 verdict in favour of Lord Ram. The decision was a victory for millions of Hindus, affirming Guru ji’s testimony.
As mentioned on the website, ‘In his affidavit, he cited the ancient Hindu scriptures (Vālmīki’s Rāmāyaṇa, Rāmatāpanīya Upaniṣad, Skanda Purāṇa, Yajurveda, Atharvaveda, et cetera) describing Ayodhyā as a city holy to Hindus and the birthplace of Rāma. He cited verses from two works of Tulasīdāsa – eight verses from the Dohā Śataka which describe the destruction of a temple and construction of mosque at the disputed site in 1528 CE, and one verse from Kavitāvalī which mentions the disputed site.’

06/7Guru ji’s blindness

It is said that Guru Rambhadracharya lost his eyesight at the tender age of merely two months. He was diagnosed with Trachoma and the unavailability of modern medicine in his village led to the condition worsening. After a point, he lost his full eyesight but that did not stop him from reading some of the most holy texts in Hinduism and also authoring many books. He is a PhD and a DLitt., a feat not everyone can accomplish.
It is also said that although Late PM Shri Indira Gandhi offered to pay for his treatment in the US, Guruji politely declined the same.
