Lord Rama is regarded as the most pious, spiritual and dutiful human being of Satya Yuga (the Age of truth and Justice). Seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu god Ram is also regarded as Maryada Purushottam Bhagwan Ram. Saint Tulsidas has truly portrayed prestige characters of Lord Rama in Ramcharitmanas - retelling of Sanskrit Ramayan in vernacular language Avadhi. During Golden age, Ram was born in reign of King Dasharatha. Elder son Rama of Dasharatha and Kausalya is true idol of fortitude. Without giving any argument son Ram followed all guidelines given by father Dasharatha. Kakai who was the second wife of Dasharatha never wanted elder son Ram to take over the reign of Ayodhya, and wished that her own son Bharata would attain throne of Dasharatha. And this greed of Kaikai convinced husband Dasharatha to give 14 years exile to son Rama. But Lord Rama was the real picture of magnanimous - without uttering a single word he obeyed and deeply respected words of father Dasharatha. It is believed that Lord Rama is a real icon and inspiration of truth and justice. Incarnation of Lord Vishnu bhagwan Ram was born during the golden age. Lord Rama is also remembered for his faithful dedications towards relations, and so he is also regarded as Maryada Purushottam Ram.
During Ram Navami, Hindu people welcome the commemoration of birth of Shri Ram. During Navami, shrines and temples of Lord Rama are beautifully decorated with an eye-catchy touch of magnificent lights and mesmerizing colorful flowers. Devotees embellish their pooja ghar with installation of idol or picture of Ram. All family members stand together and chant bhajans and aarti in honor of Lord Rama with full of devotion.
