Sree Rama Navami 2009

"Sree Ram Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama"
Rama Navami is celebrated today April 3rd 2009. Celebrations begin with a prayer to the Sun early in the morning. At midday, when Lord Rama is supposed to have been born, a special prayer is performed.

Just chanting the name of Lord Rama will bring joy and prosperity in your life. Seventh avatar of Lord vishnu is “Ram Avatar”. This avatar was taken my lord vishnu to show the human being, how an ideal husband, king, Brother over all a human should be.

So follow the foot Prints of Rama prosper in your life. Lead your life as a Ideal human being.
The syllable 'ra' comes from the eight-lettered mantra of Narayana and the syllable 'ma' comes from the five lettered mantra of Siva.

Thus the word Rama combines in itself the life-giving letters of the two most important mantras of the Hindu religion.

Rama Navami at my place:

Morning prayers by chanting "Sri Rama Jayam" 101 times in front of lord rama.

Mid afternoon offered Milk and sweet for the lord and Performed Deep arthana.

Evening prayers with deep arthana chanting Sri rama 101 times
