Ram Navami is celebrated to mark the birth of Lord Ram to King Dasharath and Queen Kausalya in Ayodhya in Treta Yuga.

A spring festival is celebrated on the ninth day of Chaitra month, which is the first month in the Hindu lunar calendar.

It is believed that after nine days of Chaitra Navratri, during which the nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped, Lord Ram and his three brothers, Lakshmana, Bharat, and Shatrughana, descended on Earth.

On this day, people visit temples dedicated to Lord Rama, who is also known as “Maryada Purushottama”, and pray to him to show them the right path in life and conduct.

During the Ram Navami celebration, Hindus across the world also celebrate Chaitra Navratri, offering prayers to Goddess Durga.

This year, Ram Navami along with Navratri began yesterday and will end next Thursday.

These nine days are dedicated to Lord Ram, Lord Hanuman, and Goddess Durga.

Chaitra Navratri has been divided into nine forms of Durga.

Acting National Secretary of Sanatan Fiji and National General Secretary of Shree Sanatan Dharm Purohit Brahman Maha Sabha Fiji Pudit Krishneel Tiwari says on behalf of Sanatan Fiji and Shree Sanatan Dharm Purohit Brahman Maha Sabha Fiji, he would like to wish each and everyone a Happy and blessed Ram Navami and Navratri.
