SRI RAMA NAVAMI

Sri Rāma Navami is the auspicious appearance day of Lord Sri Rāmachandra. Sri Rāmachandra appeared in the month of Chaitra (March – April), on the ninth day of the growing moon (Chaitra Masa, Shukla Paksha, Navami Tithi), and this particular day is celebrated as Sri Rāma Navami every year. The life and activities of Sri Rāma are explained in detail by the great sage Valmiki in the epic Rāmayana.

Lord Ram is the Maryada Purushottam, played as an ordinary human being and displayed through His spotless character and conduct how one should follow dharma and lead a life of righteousness. Srila Shukadeva Goswami narrated a summarized version of the Rāmayana to Maharaja Parikshit in the ninth canto of Srimad-Bhāgavatam (Bhāgavata Purana).

Devotees fast throughout the day and remember Sri Rāma, chanting His holy names or hearing from the Rāmayana, and breaking the fast at sunset. In the evening, the Utsav Deities of Sri Sri Rādha Krishnachandra are decorated as Sita Rāma and taken in a temple procession. Devotees sing the glories of Lord Rāma and Nama Rāmayana – a great song that narrates the entire Rāmayana.

This year we are celebrating Sri Rāma Navami on April 21, 2021.
