Rama Navami

Rama Navami is said to be the celebration of Lord Rama’s birth. This auspicious occasion should be made use of to atone for our sins and acquire the infinite grace of Lord Rama. It is often said that chanting Lord Rama’s name once is equivalent to chanting Lord Vishnu’s name a thousand times. This post is the first in a series of posts on Lord Rama as a celebration of Rama Navami.

The rituals related to Rama Navami may be started 7-9 days, such that they culminate on the Navami day. It is advisable to make the whole family participate in such prayers so that the benefits fall upon everyone equally. At the night before the day on which you wish to start performing the Rama Navami related rituals, clean the pooja room or a corner of your house (preferably the north-east, or south-west), and keep a lamp there. Now place a lamp beside the lamp. Now, place a photo of Lord Rama behind the lamp. Then, sit in front of the lamp and chant the following mantra 41 times, while holding your right hand over the centre of your head, and the left hand over your navel :

om hari shree dasharathanandanaya shree bhakthavalsalaya namo namah 


ॐ हरी श्री दश्रधनंदनाया श्री भक्थ्वाल्सलाया नमो नमः
