Sri Rama Navami is a Very important Hindu Festival celebrating the birth of Lord Sri Rama. Lord Rama is one of the Main Avatharams of Sri Mahavishnu, who is considered the Supreme Lord. The holy day usually falls in the Shukla Paksha on the Navami, the ninth day of the month of Chaitra. Thus it is also known as Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami, and marks the end of the nine-day Chaitra-Navaratri (Vasanta Navaratri) celebrations. Valmiki in his Sanskrit text Ramayana describes the natal or birth chart of young Rama,[15] and this day is celebrated as Ramanavami festival throughout India and amongst Indian diaspora:[16]


Valmiki (who wrote Ramayanam) in his Sanskrit text Ramayana describes the natal or birth chart of young Rama,[15] and this day is celebrated as Ramanavami festival throughout India  - 
“On completion of the ritual six seasons have passed by and then in the twelfth month, on the ninth day of Chaitramonth [March–April], when the presiding deity of ruling star of the day is Aditi, where the ruling star of day is Punarvasu (Nakshatra), the asterism is in the ascendant, and when five of the nine planets viz., Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus are at their highest position, when Jupiter with Moon is ascendant in Cancer, and when day is advancing, then Queen Kausalya gave birth to a son with all the divine attributes like lotus-red eyes, lengthy arms, roseate lips, voice like drumbeat, and who took birth to delight the Ikshwaku dynasty, who is adored by all the worlds, and who is the greatly blessed epitome of Vishnu, namely Rama.”
