Sri Rama was Lord Vishnu's seventh avatar
(incarnation) on earth. Sri Rama was portrayed as being the ideal man, and his
wife Sita, was the ideal woman. Sri Ramanavami is the birth of Sri Rama on this
earth. This festival usually occurs between March or April in the Christian
calendar. The festival is celebrated on the ninth day of the bright fortnight of
the Hindu month of Chaitra. In some parts of India, it is a nine-day festival,
coinciding with the Vasanta Navaratri.
The story of Rama was first written by the Sage Valmiki. The epic known as the Ramayana. The public worship starts with morning ablutions, chanting Vedic mantras dedicated to Vishnu, and offering flowers and fruits to the god. People keep a fast throughout the day, breaking it only at midnight..
Ramayana is one of the great epics of India. This story of Sri Rama by the great sage Valmiki is referred to as the Adi Kavya. Other famous versions of Ramayana include Shri Ram Charit Manas in avadhii by Goswami Tulasidas and Kambarís Kambaraamayanam in Tamil.
The Ramayana has been a perennial source of spiritual, cultural and artistic inspiration, not only to the people of India but also to the people all over the world. It has helped to mould the Hindu character and has inspired millions of people with the deepest of love and devotion.
"Rama, the ancient idol of the heroic ages, the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, and above all, the ideal king, this Rama has been presented before us by the great sage Valmiki. No language can be purer, none chaster, none more beautiful, and at the same time simpler, than the language in which the great poet has depicted the life of Rama."-- Swami Vivekananda
