Ram Navami : The Birthday of Lord Ram

Ram Navami: Exact Time of Birth

ramm

  • Lord Rama was born on Navami Tithi during Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month.
  • Lord Rama was born during Madhyahna period which is middle of Hindu day.
  • Madhyahna which prevails for six Ghatis (approximately 2 hours and 24 minutes) is the most auspicious time to perform Rama Navami Puja rituals.
  • The mid-point of Madhyahna marks the moment when Shri Rama was born and temples symbolize this moment as birth moment of Lord Rama.
  • The chanting of Shri Rama and celebration reaches its peak during this time.
  • Due to widespread use of western clock and Gregorian calendar people assume 12 p.m. as Madhyahna moment.
  • This could have been correct if sunrise and sunset occur exactly at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. respectively but at most places sunrise and sunset timings are different from six O’clock.
  • Hence the exact time to celebrate birthday of Lord Rama falls between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for most Indian cities.
