The seventh Avatar of Lord Vishnu | Lord Rama
The seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu was Lord Rama, one of the most worshipped deities by peoples in India. The purpose of the Lord Vishnu incarnation as Rama Avatar is to eliminate the King of Lanka, Ravana. Ravana acquired such a power that made him invincible and indestructible by Devas and Asuras.
Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya as a son of Dasharath the King of Ayodhya. King Dasharath had three wives, Kaushaliya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. Kaushaliya gave birth to Ram, Kaikeyi gave birth to Bharat and Sumitra gave birth to Lakshman and Shatrughan. Ram was the eldest amongst them.
14 Years of Exile:
King Dasharath was getting old and wanted Ram to be the next king of Ayodhya as he is the elder one. But Kaikeyi wants his son Bharath to be the King of Ayodhya. He went to King Dasharath and very slyly reminded him of the boon that he had promised her. When King Dasharath asked her what her wish was, She said that she wanted her son Bharath to be the next King of Ayodhya and Rama should be sent on an exile of 14 years.
Knowing the demand of Kaikeyi, Rama agreed to go for exile where his wife Sita and his brother Lakshman joined him. During the exile Lord Rama met Hanuman, who is the true devotee of Lord Rama.
