Dear devotees,

Lord Rama, the most famous incarnation of God, appeared on Rama-navami
(Chaitra 9)._ He is known as Maryada Purusottama and is the emblem
righteousness. His life and teachings of morality in office are as relevant
for us today as when He appeared nearly 20 million years ago: 

"The emperor [Dasaratha] held his four mighty sons, who had issued from his
body, as dear as his own arms. Of the four, Lord Rama was the king's most
beloved son, and like a Brahma He excelled all others in virtue._ Indeed, He
was the eternal Lord Sri Vishnu, and had advented Himself in the world of men
on behalf of the Devas, who desired the slaying of Ravana."
