Šri Rãma Navami Utsavam – 2023

Šri Rãma Navami Mahotsavam

March 22, (Wednesday) thru March 30, 2023 (Thursday)

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 (Šukla Paksha) in the month of Chaitra and coincides with Vasanta Navaratri. The Hindu Temple Society of North America celebrates Šri Rãma Navami elaborately for nine days with special poojas, homams, pãrãyanams, abhishekam, 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. May we all pray to Šri Rãma Parivar and receive blessings for happiness, success and prosperity for the entire family.

Sponsoring info for this festival is given at the end of this page.
