Šri Rãma Navami Utsavam – 2019

Šri Rãma Navami Utsavam

April 5 (Friday) thru April 13 (Saturday)

This most auspicious Šri Rãma Navami is the day on which Lord Šri Rãma, the seventh avatar of Lord Šri Vishnu, incarnated in Ayodhya. The word “Rama” literally means the one who is divinely blissful and who gives joy to others, and the one in whom the sages rejoice.

This important festival falls on the ninth day of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) in the month of Chaitra and coincides with Vasant Navratri. The Hindu Temple Society of North America celebrates Šri Rãma Navami elaborately for nine days with special poojas, homams, pãrãyanams, abhishekam, bhajans, Šri Sita-Rãma Kalyãna Utsavam and Šri Rãma Pattãbhishekam.

Šri Rãma Navami indicates the victory of goodness and the defeat of evil power and establishment of the dharma and removal of adharma. Please participate in Šri Rãma Navami poojas on all nine days and have divine darshan of Šri Rãma Parivar for happiness, success and prosperity for the entire family. Devotees are invited to join and sing along Šri Rãma bhajans on April 6 (Saturday), April 7 (Sunday) and April 13 (Saturday).

Please sponsor during Šri Rãma Navami celebrations and receive the Blessings of Šri Rãma Parivar. Sponsoring info for this festival is given at the end of this page.
