Dear devotees

This year, Sita-navami, the appearance day of Sita Devi,  falls on the 23rd 
of April.

Her glories are sun by the poet-saint Thyagaraja in his "Sri Janakatayane"

Oh daughter of Janaka, the blessed souls of refugees!  Oh Consort of Sri 
Raghu Rama, bedecked with shining gem-ornaments! Pray, protect me always! You 
are the wind that destroys the clouds of demons like the hundres-headed 
Ravana; You are the indweller in the hearts of the devotees; Your Feet shine 
with the lustre of gems set in the crown of Indra.
