How and Why was Lord Rama Born? 

Also known as the seventh representation of Lord Vishnu, Maryada Purushottam Ram came into existence in the Treta Yuga. As per the conventions mentioned in religious scriptures, Lord Rama incarnated with a special purpose. This mainly included the benefit and salvation of mankind. He was born to set examples for human beings and negate every form of immoral and unjust activities taking place on this earth and establish law and order once again. 

King Dashrath, the father of Lord Rama had three wives, but none of them were able to bear any progeny, the one who could acquire Dashrath’s throne. The king decided to seek guidance from sages and hermits. In such an encounter, a sage advised King Dashrath to organise the ‘Putrayasthi Yagya’. As suggested, he commemorated all the rituals and organised the ‘Putrayasthi Yagya’.

The Prasad distributed after the Yagya was specially handed over by the king to his favourite wife, Kaushalya. Being the just woman she is, Kaushalya decided to share this Prasad with the other two wives as well.  She distributed one share to Kaikeyi and the remaining other to Sumitra. Under the influence of the Yagya and the Prasad, kaushalya gave birth to Lord Rama during the Navami Tithi of Shukla paksha in the month of Chaitra. This also took place under Punarvasu Nakshatra and Rama was also born under the Cancer ascendant. Similarly Kaikeyi gave birth to Bharat and Sumitra bore twins named Lakshman and Shatrughan.

Mythology Associated with Ram Navami

The mythological legends the story of Ram Navami begins with Lankapati Ravan. It dates back to that time period when Ravan came across to his natives as an atrocious ruler. He treated his subjects with malice and hatred. The entire Kingdom had worn out due to his cruel and evil principles. Not only the common folks, even the deities residing in heaven were also fed up of Ravana’s misuse of power. When the cruelties surpassed each and every limit, then the entire heavenly deities visited Lord Vishnu and asked him to save them. 

As a result of this prayer put forward by the deities of heaven, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Dashrath and Kaushalya’s son, Lord Rama. He went on to overpower Ravana and defeated him in a war. Now, it has been mentioned a  while ago that the Navami Tithi of Shukla paksha which arrives in the month of Chaitra is celebrated very much as Ram Navami and ever since then this tradition has not stopped. It is also believed that Swami Tulsidas penned down the Ramcharitmanas during this Navami Tithi only. 

Lord Sun also Worshipped on this Day 

There is also a great significance of conducting the Surya Prathna(reverence of lord Sun) on the day of Ram Navami. Keeping this in mind, one should only get going with the Ram Navami rituals after paying homage to the Sun. 

It is said to be because the Sun is a symbol of power and according to Hinduism, it is also considered to be the ancestor of Rama. Therefore, the purpose of praying to the Sun at the beginning of that day is to receive the blessings of the Supreme Power.
