Sri Rama Navami is one of the most important Hindu festivals which falls on the ninth day of the bright fortnight of the month of Chaitra ( March /April). This is the day on which Lord Rama, the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born on earth as a son to the King of Ayodhya, Dasharatha, to end the atrocities committed by the demon king Ravana. Rama killed Ravana in order to maintain Dharma, on earth. He exemplified the ‘perfect’ person (maryada purushottam). He was the embodiment of compassion, gentleness, kindness, righteousness and integrity. So, this festival celebrates the victory of good over evil. In south India, devotees celebrate this festival as the day Lord Rama and Goddess Sita got married, symbolizing the love bondage between husband and wife and thus also referred to as Kalyanotsavam.
