Lord Rama, considered as the 7th incarnation of Lord Vishnu, personifies the ideal human. According to Sage Valmiki, Sri Rama was born on the ninth lunar day of the bright fortnight of Chaitra, when the star Punarvasu was in the ascendant. Although Sage Valmiki gave us the birth details, as related to the planetary positions, the actual year of birth is not furnished in Srimad Valmiki-Ramayana or other Vedic scriptures.
While there are debates around the exact date of birth of Lord Rama, Dr. Bangalore Sureshwara attempts to share his research about the various methods used to determine the birth date and horoscope of Lord Rama. Sri Rama’s horoscope is possibly the only horoscope in the world to have exaltation of five planets in the horoscope.
