Significance of RAM NAVMI
The festival of Ram Navami is celebrated as the birthday of the Hindu God Rama, who is one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. According to the Hindu calendar, it falls on the ninth day of the Chaitra month, which is the spring season. Though Ram Navami is a major festival which celebrates birth of Lord Rama, it is widely celebrated by the worshippers of Shiva, too. 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 not to ask for special favors of the deity, but to seek perfection as a human being.
The VHCS-BC in lower mainland is committed to highlight and celebrate Canadian & Indian days and events for the Indo Canadian community. This is done to create cultural awareness on an ongoing basis and to honor the diversity of the multi ethnic fabric of Canada. VHCS-BC is humbled by the community support and takes pride in their voluntary services to make these events a huge success. Your support will be an encouragement to us, as well as, to the Indo Canadians in BC.
