Rama Navami, celebrated on the occasion of the birth of Lord Rama, is a Hindu spring festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Rama, the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu, on the ninth day of Chaitra Navratri. According to legend, Lord Rama is considered the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu because he was born the son of King Dashrata and Queen Kaushaly in Ayodya, Tretkha-Yuga. According to the Hindustani calendar, this festival falls on the Shukla Paksha (half lighter) in the month Chaitra.

On this day the faithful pray for peace, prosperity and success and seek the divine blessing of Lord Rama. Ram Navami also marks the ninth day of Navratri, when the faithful give food to the needy. On this day Hindus also perform Kanya puja rituals where 9 girls are invited to go home and treated with respect, because Hindus believe they are a manifestation of Maiden. A prasad consisting of halva-soya, kala-khan and purification is also prepared and offered to the girls after the puja-ritual.

The history and value of Ram Navami

Rama Nawami is included in Rama, especially in the Ramayana, which is considered one of the two great Sanskrit sects of the Hindu religion. The story of Ram Navami is also called the Katha Gate. It describes how King Dashratha and three of his queens, Kaushal, Kaikei and Sumitra, executed Kameshti Yagna on the advice of Rishi Vashi Putra, while none of King Dashratha’s wives could give him an heir. After Yagna, three queens received Kheer, who was blessed by Yajna, the Lord of Yagna. The queens were conceived shortly after the conception of the Chirus and on the ninth day of the month Chaitra Queen Kaushal gave birth to Rama. Bharat, Lakshman and Shatrunana were born as other queens.

Lord Rama was forced to retire as the rightful heir of Ayodhiya because of the promise King Dachraf made to his third wife Kaikei. However, he ruled the kingdom on his return from 14 years of exile and became a righteous and beloved ruler.

How it happens

Ram Navami is one of the biggest Hindu festivals and is celebrated in many different ways. Some followers swim and dress Lord Rama’s miniature idols and put them in his cradle to celebrate his birth. A lamp is lit for the idol, and the cherry is prepared as a sacrifice to God. Many followers also celebrate Navami by providing food for people in need. On that day Hindus also perform Kanya puja rituals in which nine girls are invited to return home and are respected, because Hindus believe they are the expression of an Indian motto. Prasad, consisting of halva and purification, is prepared and given to the girls.
