Ram Navami 2021: The special significance of Rama Navami is stated in Sanatan Dharma. The festival of Ramnavami is celebrated on the Navami date of the Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month. This auspicious date is on Wednesday, April 21. On this day Lord Rama was born in Cancer Ascendant in Punarvas Nakshatra. But this time due to Corona, curfew has been imposed in most places and all major temples have been closed in Ayodhya. Let’s know how and why Ram Navami is celebrated.
This is Why Ram Navami is Celebrated
Lord Vishnu destroys iniquity in every age and incarnates in every age to establish religion. In Tretayuga, Lord Vishnu took the incarnation of Sita by Rama and Mother Lakshmi. On the day Srihari was born with the womb of Mata Kaushalya at King Dasharatha, the day was the ninth day of the Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month. Hence this date is celebrated as Rama Navami. Also, this day is also the last day of Chaitra Navratri. Lord Rama never used to distinguish between man and woman and also did not distinguish between the high and low prevalent in the society. He devoted his entire life to the welfare of the society.
