Ram Navmi Story

Bala Kanda, a part of the great epic ‘Ramayana’ attributed to the great Sant Valmiki and Tulsidasa, brings out the birth story of Lord Ram, his brothers Lakshma, Bharata and Shatrugana, his loyal wife Sita and his true devotee Hanumana in a very astonishing way.

According to the scripts in Ramayana, Lord Ram was born in Treyta Yuga. The legend goes like this – Dashratha, the King of Ayodhya lived with his three wives, Kaushalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. During the reign of Dashratha, Ayodhya reached a period of great prosperity. However, Dasaratha faced a big problem – he has no child and therefore no heir to the throne in Ikshvaku Kula. Hence, he performed a fire sacrifice known as Putra-Kameshti Yagya on the suggestion of Rishi Vashishta to get a desired child. A very holy saint, rishi Rishyashring performed the sacrificial offerings. As a consequence, Agni Dev or Yagneshwara appeared in front of Dashratha and provided him with a bowl of divine Kheer/Payasam. He requested Dashrartha to divide the pudding between his wives. Dashratrtha followed the order and gave half of the kheer to his elder wife Kaushyala and another half to younger wife Kaitkeyi. Both queens further gave one half of their portions to Sumitra. On the ninth day (navami) in the month of Chaitra (April-May), Kaushalya gave birth to Rama, Kaikeyi to Bharata and Sumitra to Lakshma and Shatrugna. Since then, this day is celebrated as Rama Navami, with great zeal through out the world.
