Every year Ram Navami festival comes at the end of March or beginning of April month. Perhaps this festival is not celebrated like other grand festivals Holi and Diwali, but yes, this auspicious occasion reminds us about Lord Rama and the inspiration he gave us. Today, people have really forgotten the true meaning of responsibilities and duties. They are gradually indulging in selfishness and falsehood. We can't deny that this is Kali Yuga-the Iron Age, where the entire atmosphere is full of evil things. If we truly want to defeat our immoralities, we should deeply commemorate Lord Rama.
Bhagwan Shri Rama is the elder son of King Dasharatha and Queen Kaushalya, this gives him another name - Dashrath Nandan. Shri Rama is the real idol of patience. With enormous endurance, Lord Rama had completed 14 years of Vanvas (exile) given by his father and second mother Kakai. He never perverted his path of truth. Lord Rama defeated the powerful king of Lanka and herculean devil of earth "Ravana", and thus proved that good things and truth always get victory over evil existence.
On the occasion of Ram Navami, religious people and devotees of Shri Rama get up early in the morning and take bath to proceed for worship. Many devotees also keep strict fast on this day and do not consume salty food. People decorate their pooja sthan (place of worship) at home and embellish idol or picture of Shri Rama with colourful flowers and with mesmerizing fragrances of dhoop battis. Temples of Shri Rama are also decorated with colourful lights and flowers. Pundits adorn Shri Rama with mukuts of gold or silver, and with beautiful, neat and clean silky cloths. They pray invocations, bhajans and aarti of shri Rama with a melodious loud echo. They offer varieties of Sweets and Prasad to please Lord Rama.
