RAM Navami in Bengal

Sri Rama Navami in Bengal


This picture shows a manuscript of Navami Nataka. This manuscript was handwritten by none other than the great Bengal saint Chaitanya Mahaprabhu(16th century). The manuscript has his own handwriting. Navami Nataka was a drama performed in Bengal on the occasion of Rama Navami. It was a play enacting the important episodes of Ramayana and was performed in the streets of Bengal. Such is the association of Lord Rama with Bengal.
