Sita Navami is a Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Goddess Sita, the wife of Lord Rama and the embodiment of strength, devotion, and purity. This year, it will be observed on Saturday, April 29, 2023. It is observed on the ninth day of the Hindu lunar month of Chaitra and is a time for devotion, prayer, and spiritual reflection. The festival is particularly significant for devotees of Lord Rama, who is regarded as one of the most important avatars of Lord Vishnu. On Sita Navami, devotees perform puja, sing devotional songs, and listen to recitations of the Hindu epic “Ramayana” which tells the story of Lord Rama and Goddess Sita. It is also a day for fasting, meditation, and performing acts of charity. The festival is widely celebrated in India, especially in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh where Lord Rama is said to have been born and is an important part of the Hindu religious calendar.
