Today happens to be Ram Navami that is celebrated to proclaim the birth of Lord Ram, one of the tenth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The ninth day (Navami) in the bright fortnight of the Hindu lunar month of Chaitra is referred to as Ram Na...vami. On this day, when the five planets and the sun, etc. were in the first house of cancer at noon along with the lunar asterism Pushya, Ramachandra was born in Ayodhya. The festival commemorates the birth of Rama who is remembered for his preperous and righteous reign. Ramrajya (the reign of Ram) has become synonymous with a period of peace and prosperity. Mahatma Gandhi also used this term to describe how, according to him, India should be after independence. In ancient era, when Ravan, king of Lanka, was terrorizing the people, and all were longing for liberation from his menace. Ravan had acquired great power because he had obtained from God Brahma the boon that he would never die at the hands of gods, or gandharvas, or yakshas (demigods) or demons. As he was not afraid of men he did not care to include men in the list of his potential slayers. So Brahmadev declared that Ravan would die at the hands of a man. Then the gods went to Vishnu with the request, “ Raja Dasarath who was a glorious king. Where that holy man is to take his birth When Dasarath’s sacrifice came to an end 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 time Kausalya gave birth to Rama, Kaikayi to Bharat and Sumitra to Laxman and Shatrugna. Ram was born at noon of the bright ninth day of Chaitra. He was believed to be the embodiment of half degree of Vishnu’s divinity. According to legend, Rama was born at noon. Ram is the epitome of perfection, the godly person fulfilling all his duties towards both family and subjects. Lord Ram was the first of the four sons of King Dasharatha of Ayodhya. When it was time for Ram to be made crown-prince, his stepmother, Kaikeyi, got Dasharatha to send 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. Ram, together with Hanuman and the monkey army, built a bridge to Lanka, killed Ravana, and brought Sita back. It is believed that listening to the story of Lord Ram cleanses the soul. Meditating on the noble Lord Ram and chanting his name is believed to ease the pains of life and lead one to liberation. It is also common practice to chant the name of Ram while in distress. Though Rama Navami is a major festival for Vaishnavites, it is widely celebrated by worshippers of Shiva, too. It is considered auspicious to undertake a fast on the day in the name of Rama. Most of the devotees fast for nine days, from Ugadi to Rama Navami. The objective of the fast is not to ask for special favors of the deity but to seek perfection as a human being. Devotees perform elaborate pujas and chant the name of Lord Ram. Temples of Lord Ram have special services and bhajan sessions throughout the day. On this day Lord Ram was born at 12:00 cloack in day at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh State of India,hence specials prayers are offered at that time by chanting “Bhaye Pragat Kripala,Din Dayala,Harsit Mahtari, Adbhut Roop Nihari..” with great sanctity in almost all Ram temples located everywhere the world.Let us celebrate the day with great festivity by offering our humble obeisance to the lotus feet of Lord Ram,His brothers,spouse and His most loving Parents!
