The Supreme Personality of Godhead incarnated Himself as Sri Rama, accepting the sonhood
of His pure devotee Maharaja Dasharath, the King of Ayodhya. Lord Rama descended along
with His plenary portions, and all of them appeared as His younger brothers. In the month of
Caitra on the ninth day of the growing moon in the Treta-yuga, the Lord appeared, as usual,
to establish the principles of religion and to annihilate the disturbing elements.
