As Hindus in Fiji will celebrate the birth of Lord Ram today, it reminds us to follow the path of righteousness and truth.

Lord Ram is hailed for his righteousness, good conduct and virtues as it is a celebration of good over evil.

Kushal Sundar, a devotee from Koronivia, says the past 8 days have been motivational and spiritual for him as it allowed him to focus on his life.

Sundar, a member of Lokia Landing Ramayan Mandali says Ram Navami teaches youths to always respect their parents and the wishful decisions that they make.

He says it also teaches us to be patient and make rational decisions for our family which will benefit people around us.

Sundar says Lord Ram is the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu that also teaches us to fulfill our duties, rights and social responsibilities.

On the occasion of Ram Navami devotees fast for 9 days, recite the holy book of Ramayan, visit temples, pray, sing kirtans, distribute food, and do community service.

Ram Navami concludes at midday today.
