Ramanavami

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019

Ramanavami will be celebrated at Bhaktivedanta Manor on
Sunday 14th of April 2019.

The  Ramanavami  celebration observes the birth of Lord Rama, and is one of the most auspicious days in the Vaisnava calendar.  Lord Rama is an incarnation of the Supreme Lord who appeared on this earth several millennia ago.

At Bhaktivedanta Manor, celebrations for Ramanavami include special decorations, drama, discussion of Lord Rama’s pastimes and a harinama chanting procession in a local town.  It is a popular occasion, as Lord Rama is very dear to many devotees.  During His activities while on Earth, Lord Rama demonstrated high moral values and acted as the perfect son, student, brother, husband and King.  His extraordinary adventure is marvellously depicted  in the famous epic The Ramayana.

The Ramayan is a Sanskrit epic poem ascribed to the sage Valmiki. It is regarded as one of the two great works of Indian traditional literature, along with the Mahabharat. The Ramayana also plays an important role in Vedic literature  . It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, the ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king. The name Ramayana is a compound of Rāma and ayana (“going, advancing”), translating to “Rama’s Journey“.
