Mantras of Sri Rama - Incarnation of Lord Vishnu

Shri Rama Mantras
Lord Shri Ram is regarded as the seventh incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu. Lord Rama is one of the most popular gods in the Hindu religion and also the central character in the great epic Ramayana. The character of Ram is that of an ideal person. He is an ideal king, ideal son, ideal husband and an ideal brother. This Avatar of Lord Vishnu appears on Earth in the Treta Yuga and kills the demon Ravan who had received a boon from Lord Brahma. Diwali, the biggest festival of Hindus, is associated with the return of Shri Rama along with Lakshman and Sita after 14 years of exile. Rama nama in itself is a divine mantra and just chanting the name of Ram (Ra ma) helps one to attain salvation. The Mantra ‘Ra ma’ is called the Thaaraka mantra and is a combination of Namasivaya mantra and the Om Namo Narayanaya maha mantra thereby representing the merger of Shiva and Narayana. Another mantra of Rama is "Sri Ram, Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram". More mantras of this Deity are given below.
