LEARNING the importance of love, peace and togetherness is one of the main reasons behind the celebration of the annual Hindu festival of Ram Naumi.

The event, which celebrates the birth of Lord Rama, is seen by devotees as one of the most prominent on the Hindu calendar.

Lautoka Sanatan Dharm branch vice-president Keshwa Sharma was present at the Shivalay Temple in Lautoka for Ram Naumi celebrations yesterday.

He said the birth of Lord Rama signified the value of morals in the society.

"In the Ramayan, we are told of the story of Lord Rama and how important family was to him," said Mr Sharma.
