Lord Ramachandra appearance
Every year ISKCON Vrindaban celebrates Ramnavmi with great joy and pomp. On Ramnavmi, the functions at New Vrindaban begin with mangala-arati at 5:00 am, followed by Sringar-darshan (where the Lord is decorated with new exquisite dresses), sacred abhishek, elaborate noon arati and offering of sumptuous bhoga.
Lord Ramachandra is an avatar of the Supreme Personality of Godhead as an ideal king. He appeared more than two million years ago. Under the order of His father, Lord Ramachandra lived in the forest for fourteen years, along with His wife, Sita Devi, and His younger brother, Lakshmana. After the powerful demon Ravana kidnapped His wife, Lord Ramachandra rescued her, with the help of His faithful servant Hanuman, and killed Ravana along with Ravana's armies. The history of Lord Ramachandra's pastimes is recounted by the sage Valmiki in his Ramayana.
