He who seeks refuge in me just once, telling that "I am yours", I shall give him assurance of safety against all types of beings. This is My solemn pledge. ---- Lord Sri Rama

Sri Rama Navami
The festival of Ram Navami is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Sri Rama, who is believed to be one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. According to our vedic calendar, it falls on the ninth day of the Chaitra month, which is the spring season. It is considered auspicious to undertake a fast on the day of Ram Navami, in the name of Rama. The objective of the fast is to seek perfection as a human being.

Benefits of Sundar Kand
Sri Sundar Kand brings confidence and hope from all corners. Hanuman indulgence in the destruction of evils has proved that Dharma alone will triumph. People started believing in Dharma (good virtues). Only Lord Rama could destroy Adharma (all evil virtues). Sundara Kandam teaches us that, if we want to be successful in life we have to practice Dharma. The significance of reading Sundara Kandam will definitely result in prosperity and it will mitigate all problems you face in your daily life. Reading one time Sundara Kandam is equal to chanting 100,000 times Gayathri Japam.

Let us join in the holy event, chant 108 times "Sri Rama Nam", Sri Sundar Kand and receive divine Blessings of Lord Sri Rama
