Ram Navami is the appearance day of Lord Rama. Navami means nine and Lord Rama appeared on the ninth day of the bright half of the month of Chaitra. His name was Ramchandra, Prince of Ayodha.

Ramachandra appeared in the Sun Dynasty, as the son of King Dasharatha, in the line of King Ikshvaku, the first ruler of Earth. Lord Rama was the darling of His father and mother, Queen Kaushalya, as well as the hero of all Ayodhya, the capital of what was then a single world kingdom.

Rama had all the admirable qualities of leadership, even from earliest youth. He possessed all physical strength, beauty, religious wisdom, fame for prowess with weapons, royal wealth, and complete renunciation.

Inseparable from Rama was Lakshmana, His younger brother. Together the two brothers appeared on Earth to vanquish the almost invincible King Ravana and his host of Rakshasa (man-eating) warriors.
