With this, Goswami Tulsidas started the creation of Ramcharitmanas in Ayodhya on the occasion of Ram Navami.

4. Lord Nrsimhadev’s Appearance

Other great deities like Brahma, Shiva, etc. did not have the courage to go before God, because at that time they were extremely angry.

All the frightened gods present there prayed to Laxmiji to go before the Lord. But she too had never seen such a wonderful and unusual form of God, so she could not go to him.

After that, Brahmaji requested Prahlad Maharaj stand near him – O son, Lord Narsimhadeva is extremely angry with your devilish father.

Therefore, you go ahead and calm down God. He slowly moved towards Lord Narasimhadeva and bowed with folded hands and bowed to him.

When Narasimhadeva saw that Prahlad Maharaj, the little boy, prostrated himself on the feet of the feet, he became very proud of his devotee.

Taking Prahlada, he put his lotus on the child’s head. His hand is always donating to all his devotees. The touching of Prahlad Maharaj’s head by Lord Narasimhadev completely washed away all Prahlad’s material desires and desires.

5. Lord Balaram’s Appearance Day

Balaram Jayanti is also known as Hal Chhath. Here Hala means Balarama and Chhath means Shashthi Tithi.

According to beliefs, Balarama Ji is considered to be the incarnation of Sheshnag of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that in Treta Yuga, Lord Rama’s younger brother Lakshman was the incarnation of Sheshnag.

Similarly, in Dwapara when Lord Vishnu came on earth in Shri Krishna’s avatar, Sheshnag also appeared here as his elder brother. Sheshnag never lives without Lord Vishnu.

Therefore, he also comes with every incarnation of God himself. On the day of Balaram Jayanti, the fortunate women fast on the wish of a powerful son.
