Hindus around the country, from today, will start their nine days of Ram Naumi celebrations marking the birth of Lord Rama.
Ram Naumi is an important Hindu festival. On this auspicious day, devotees repeat the name of Rama with every breath and vow to lead a righteous life.
People pray to attain the final beatitude of life through intense devotion towards Rama and invoke him for his blessings and protection.
Many observe a strict fast on this day. Otherwise, it is an extremely colourful ceremony, highly inspiring and instructive too.
The house is thoroughly cleaned, temples are decorated and the image of Lord Rama is richly adorned and the holy Ramayana is read in the temples.
