The Ramanavami celebration observes the birth of Lord Rama, and is one of the most auspicious days in the Vaishnava calendar. Lord Rama is an incarnation of the Supreme Lord who appeared on this earth several millennia ago.
On Sunday, April 17th at Bhaktivedanta Manor, celebrations for Ramanavami include special decorations, drama, discussion of Lord Rama’s pastimes and a harinama chanting procession in a local town. It is a popular occasion, as Lord Rama is very dear to many devotees. During His activities while on Earth, Lord Rama demonstrated high moral values and acted as the perfect son, student, brother, husband and King. His extraordinary adventure is marvellously depicted in the famous epic The Ramayana.
