23. Rama Navami-1.

    Om Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram

    SALUTATIONS to Lord Rama, an Incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is measureless, who is of the nature of pure Consciousness and bliss, who is the consort of Sita, Master of Sri Hanuman, and the Lord of the three worlds, who took His birth at His own will in order to establish righteousness, destroy the wicked and protect His devotees.

    Ramnavami or the birthday of Lord Rama falls on the 9th day of the bright fortnight of the month of Chaitra (March-April).

    Rama was the Lord Hari Himself, incarnate on earth for the destruction of Ravana.

He was well accomplished, beautiful and endowed with royal marks.

His glory and prowess were unlimited.

He was peerless on earth.

He was free from malice.

He was gentle.

He was the protector of all His people.

He always addressed them in gentle words.

He never used any harsh words even when somebody provoked Him.

He held sway over the whole world.
