April 19, 2013. Rama Navami.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead incarnated Himself as Sri Rama, appearing as the son of His pure devotee Maharaja Dasharatha, the King of Ayodhya. Lord Rama descended along with His plenary portions, and all of them appeared as His younger brothers. In the month of Chaitra on the ninth day of the growing moon in the Treta-yuga, the Lord appeared, as usual, to establish the principles of religion and to annihilate the disturbing elements.

On the day of Rama Navami, devotees fast till sunset. Lord Krishna is dressed as Rama and Lord Balarama is dressed as Lakshmana. Both are grandly decorated with ornaments, earrings, crown, a bow and a quiver of arrows.

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.

  
Rama navami es el advenimiento del Señor Rama, y se remonta a Tetra yuga. El sabio Valmiki fue el primero que recopiló la historia del Señor Rama en forma escrita. Su versión es conocida con el nombre de Ramayana (La senda de Rama).

Sri Ramachandra es una poderosa encarnación de Dios como un Rey ideal.

Por orden de su padre Maharaja Dasaratha, el Señor Ramachandra vivió en el bosque de Dandakaranya durante catorce años, junto con su esposa Sita Devi y su hermano más joven, Lakshmana.
Después que el poderoso demonio Ravana secuestrara a Su esposa, el Señor Ramachandra, con la ayuda de su fiel siervo Hanuman, la recuperó y destruyó a Ravana y su ejército.
