This festival celebrates the birthday of Shri Rama.
"Shri Rama’s story is very interesting throughout and we have now a beautiful series about Him done by our television in India ... the story of Rama they say was written before He was born. Even before there was any inkling of it the seer, Valmiki, wrote the whole story of Shri Rama. Shri Rama’s birth and all that are brought forth by the Agni, the fire, and He was born in the Dynasty of the Surya, is the sun. So with all that, born out of the blessings of the Agni, that is fire, and also was born in the dynasty of Surya, He was one of the mildest avataras you have ever had. He’s known to be a very … I mean English language … formal person, in the sense sankoch - that He would go to any extent to bear upon Himself the problems than to tell others to do something. ...
Shri Rama was so much loved by the people where He ruled in that state and He had the most beautiful wife of the most venerated father, Janaka, and who was the beloved son of His father. But He was such a humble man, such a humble man, that in all His character you see the beauty."
