    The festival of Ram Navami, which symbolises the birth of Lord Rama, is being ramnavamicelebrated with traditional fervour and devotion in different parts of the country.

    It is believe that Ram is the 7th incarnation of the Dashavatara of Vishnu. Years later Lord Rama was married to Sita on the Vivaha Panchami. The Rama Navami festival falls in the Shukla Paksha on the Navami, the ninth day of the month of Chaitra in the Hindu calendar.

    It is also known as Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami, and marks the end of the nine-day Chaitra-Navratri celebrations.

    To the devotees, Lord Ram is a symbolic representation of the positivity in creation and took birth to restore order within the entire creation.

    During the time of his birth the astral constellations were such that a phenomenal force could take a body. And a similar astral constellation returns on this date, making it the time of a very powerful vortex of energy for all those who choose to benefit from it.

    President Pranab Mukherjee, Vice President Hamid Ansari and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh greeted the nation on the occasion of Ram Navami.
