Sri Ramanavami ‘is an important festival for Hindus.

Rama Navami in India (21-05-2021)

Lord Rama was born on Chaitra Shuddha Navami in the spring, on Thursday at exactly 12 o’clock in the afternoon in the Karkataka Lagnam of the resettlement star Karkataka Lagnam, in the Tretayuga. People celebrate the birthday of that great man as a festival. After fourteen years of exile and the extermination of Ravana, Lord Rama ascended the throne with Sita in Ayodhya. It is believed that this auspicious event also took place on Chaitra Shuddha Navami Nade. Sri Sitaram’s wedding also took place today. On this Chaitra Shuddha Navami, the marriage ceremony of Bhadrachalamandu Sitarama in Telangana is celebrated in grand style.


In the Ramayana, Dasaratha, the king of Ayodhya, had three wives; Kausalya, Sumitra, Kaikei. All the suffering he has is about the offspring. If there are no children, there will be no heirs to the kingdom. Then Vashishta Mahamuni advised the king to sacrifice his son Kameshti. He handed over the responsibility of performing the yajna to the Russian Shringa Mahamu. Immediately Dasharatha went to his ashram and brought him with him to Ayodhya. Satisfied with the yajna, the fire god asked Dasaratha to give his wife a vessel full of potion. Dasharatha gave half of it to his first wife Kausalya and the second half to his younger wife Kaikeyi. They both gave half of their shares to their second wife, Sumitra. The three soon became pregnant. On the ninth day of the ninth day of the month of Chaitra, in the afternoon Kausalya gave birth to Rama. As well as Kaikei Bharatudi, Sumitra Lakshmana gave birth to Shatrughnoos. Sri Rama is the seventh incarnation of Sri Maha Vishnu who incarnated for the establishment of Dharma. Who incarnated to annihilate Ravana.


During this festival, Hindus usually perform kalyanotsavam for the small idols of Sita Ram in their homes. Finally the statues are paraded through the streets. The nine-day festival concludes with Chaitra Navratri (in Maharashtra), or Vasanthotsavam (in Telangana & Andhra Pradesh). Recent astrological research suggests that Lord Rama may have been born on January 10, 5114 BCE, the Shalivahana era.

Kingdom of Rama

The Hindus believe that if all the people of the country are prosperous and happy, it is a utopia. Mahatma Gandhi also wanted India to prosper as a utopia after independence. The festival usually falls in the months of March or April. The festival begins with a morning prayer to the Sun God. Special prayers are offered during this time as the time when Lord Rama is said to have been born is noon. The procession is a major attraction for devotees, especially in northern India. The main attraction of the festival is the beautifully decorated chariot with four people in the guise of Lord Rama, Lakshmana, Sita and Hanuman. Along with this chariot, a few soldiers follow Ramu in ancient attire. The procession goes on with the slogans of compliments and slogans uttered by the participants of the procession.

Sri Ramanavami falls at the beginning of summer. In summer the sun approaches the northern hemisphere. The Sun is said to be a worshiper of the Sun dynasty in which Lord Rama was born. Prominent kings of this dynasty were Dilipudu, Raghu etc. Of whom Raghu is certainly known as a stranger who stands by his word. Lord Rama also followed in his footsteps and lived in exile for fourteen years for the promise given by his father to his aunt Kaika. This is why Rama is known by the names of Raghuram, Raghunath, Raghupati, Raghavendra etc.

Significance of the letter “Ra”: Historically, it is believed that the day of Ramanavami had a significance long before the story of Ramayana became popular. Especially in the Ramayana and Rama Navami, the worship of the sun is very important. “Ravi” means the sun. The sun was called “Amon Ra” or “Ra” in ancient Egyptian civilization. Even in Latin the suffix “Ra” signifies light. (Eg: Radiance, Radium). The Ontimitta temple near Kadapa is also ancient.


‘Rama’ means to abide by. But as we always find that ‘Sri Rama’ shining in our heart lotus.
Once upon a time, Goddess Parvati called Lord Shiva ‘Kenopayena Laghuna Vishnornama Sahasrakam’ and asked him to tell a somewhat subtle way to the Vishnu Sahasranama hymn.

To which God said, “O Parvati! This is what I keep chanting for that result, Suma! ” That is chanted with the following verse

Shlo || Sri Rama Rama Rameti Rame Rame Manorame | Sahasra Namatattulyam Ramanama Varanane |||

If this hymn is recited three times, it is not only the result of recitation of Vishnu Sahasranama, but also the result of Shiva Sahasranama for the devotees. On Chaitrashuddha Navami, the day when the five planets are at their zenith for the sake of discipline and discipline, we celebrate the birth of Srihari Kausalyaputra on this earth in the daytime reality of Karkataka Lagnam with the resettlement star as ‘Sri Ramanavami’.

It is the profound belief of the devotees that any devotee who lives in Kashi and dies in that shrine will recite the Itarakamantra in their right ear at the time of their death and that the devotee will bring them prosperity. The longer the devotee Ramadan the better! After consuming Sri Ramanama Ganamadhupana with devotion, Srirama Neenama chanted “Memi Ruchira” Entoruchira “and Ento Ruchira”. When we utter Sri Ramanama, ‘Ra’ means open our mouths and all the sins within us will come out and fall into the flames of that Ramanama! Similarly, when the letter ‘ma’ is uttered, our mouth closes so that none of the sins that we see on the outside can enter us. That is why ‘Ramanama Smarana’ brings so much knowledge and infertility to human beings! On the day of Sri Ramanavami, large pigs are placed in the streets and Sitarama is married. Even in the houses, Lord Rama is worshiped as a Yadhasakti and Vadapappu, Panakam and offerings are made and distributed to all.
