Why do we celebrate Ram Navami?
Ram Navami is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Rama. Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya to battle against the devil Ravana.
It falls in the month of Chaitra, March on the ninth day of the Hindu lunar year. It is celebrated all across India by Hindus.
On this day some people keep fast. From numerous temples chariot processions dressed in the form of Ram, his wife Seeta, brother Lakshman and devotee Hanuman takes place. The youngest female member applies frontal mark to all the male members. Women apply red beautiful dot known as bindi on their forehead. All persons of the family participate in the prayer by sprinkling the aipun, water and roli on the gods and then showering handfuls of rice on the idol. In the end everybody performs worship while sacred or plain water is sprinkled upon them and Prasad is distributed.Category: Hinduism, India, March
