Ram Navami

Ram Navami - Birthday of Lord Rama is on 4th April, 2017 (Tuesday)

RamRam Navami is one the holy hindu festivals celebrated across the country The Hindu deity, Lord Ram was born on the Navami Tithi (the ninth day of the month) during Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month (as per Hindu calendar). It is also known as Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami. This day is celebrated each year as the birthday of Lord Rama. In 2016 Ram Navami falls on the 15th of April. Ram Navami is one of the holiest Hindu occasions that commemorate the birth of Lord Rama..

Rama was born in the middle of Hindu day, known as Madhyahna period. Madhyahna exists for six Ghatis which is about 2 hours and 24 minutes. This is the most auspicious time to perform the rituals of Rama Navami Puja. Temples celebrate the birth of Lord Rama at the mid-point of Madhyahna and the chanting of Lord Rama’s mantras and hymns are at its peak during this time. Those celebrating at home can assume the Madhyahna between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Ram was born in Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh) and the Rama Navami celebrations here are phenomenal. Devotees of Lord Rama visit Ayodhya from distant places and celebrate in temples dedicated to Rama after taking holy dip into the river Sarayu. Devotees should observe a fast from sunrise to sunrise, i.e. eight Prahar fasting during Rama Navami.

The festivities at some places may last for nine days and this period is known as the Shree Ram Navratra. In South India this day is celebrated as the wedding anniversary of Rama and His consort Devi Sita. Temples throughout South India perform the Sitarama Kalyanam with great fanfare and devotion. Shobha yatra or chariot processions (Rathyatras) of Rama, Sita, his brother Lakshman and devotee Lord Hanuman are taken out in many cities. Ayodhya, Sita Samahit Sthal (in Bihar), Bhadrachalam (in Telangana) and Rameswaram (in Tamil Nadu) are the places where the celebrations are held with great excitement.

The Legend of Lord Rama

Once upon a time, the people of Lanka were struggling to free themselves from the tyranny of Ravana whose undisputed power was absolute owing to the boon he had acquired from Lord Brahma that death shall never approach him through the hands of either God, Gandharvas, Yakshas or demons hence ordinary mortals never featured in his potential slayers' list. Hence Brahmadev declared that man will be the cause of Ravan's death. Then the Gods went to Lord Vishnu with the request, "Dasarath is a glorious king. Please, take birth in the wombs of his three queens in four different degrees of your divinity." Dasarath was performing pujas and sacrifice to be blessed with children.

Towards the end of Dasarath's sacrifice, a shining figure appeared over the sacrificial kund, and offered the king a divine beverage called "payasam" to be given to his queens Kausalya, Kaikayi, and Sumitra. In due course of time Kausalya gave birth to Rama, Kaikayi to Bharat and Sumitra to Laxman and Shatrugna. Rama was born on the bright ninth day of Chaitra. He was believed to be the embodiment of half degree of Vishnu's divinity, (ardhaounsh).

Rama was the first of the four sons of King Dasharatha of Ayodhya. When it was time for Rama to be made crown-prince, his stepmother, Kaikeyi, got Dasharatha to exile him to the forest for 14 years. His wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana also accompanied him. In the forest, Sita was kidnapped by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka. Rama, together with Hanuman and the monkey army, built a bridge to Lanka, killed Ravana and brought Sita back.

Spiritual Significance of Ram Navami

It is believed that listening to the story of Rama cleanses the soul. Meditating on the noble Rama and chanting his name is believed to ease the pains of life and lead one to Moksha or liberation. It is also common practice to chant the name of Rama while rocking babies to sleep.
