Ram Navami Celebrated In: India
Celebrated By: (Hindu)

 

Ram Navami (राम नवमी) also known as Sri Rama Navami is a Hindu festival, celebrating the birth of Lord Rama to King Dasharatha and Queen Kausalya of Ayodhya. Ram is the 7th incarnation of the Dashavatara of Vishnu. Years later Lord Rama was married to Sita on the Vivaha Panchami. The sacred marriage of Devi Sita with Lord Rama was held on Margashirsha Shukla Panchami as per Valmiki Ramayana. The SreeRama Navami festival falls in the Shukla Paksha on the Navami, the ninth day of the month of Chaitra in the Hindu calendar. Thus it is also known as Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami, and marks the end of the nine-day Chaitra-Navratri celebrations.
 
Festivities begin in the evening with the Rama Taraka homa. During this homa, the Rama Taraka mantra is chanted 108 times. All the devotees rejoice in ecstasy by performing enchanting kirtanas from Valmiki Ramayana. On this occasion, they also remember Sri Hanuman, the foremost devotee of Lord Rama and his unparalleled devotional service to the Lord. They also pray to Sri Hanuman, so that he may bless them with advancement in devotional service.
