Sri Rama Navami
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna incarnated Himself as Sri Rama in the
month of Chaitra (Mar-Apr), on the ninth day of the growing moon (Chaitra Masa Shukla
Paksha Navami Tithi).
The Supreme Lord appeared as the son of Dasharatha, the king of Ayodhya. Dasharatha
was a king in the dynasty of Maharaja Ikshvaku (also known as Raghu vansha). He had
three wives: Kaushalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra, but had no children. On the advice of
Maharishi Vashishtha, the king performed Putra Kameshti Yajna and as a result the three
wives conceived sons. Kaushalya gave birth to Rama and Kaikeyi gave birth to Bharata.
Sumitra gave birth to the twins: Lakshmana and Shatrugna.
The life and activities of Rama are explained in detail by the great sage Valmiki in the
book Ramayana. A summarized version of the Ramayana is also narrated by Shukadeva
Goswami to Parikshit Maharaja in the ninth canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam (Bhagavata
Purana).
