BIRTH OF RAGHU

SRI Rama is often called Raghupati or Raghava.

It is because he was a descendant of King Raghu who ruled this country.

The lkshvaku kings ruled the country before Raghu.

Dilipa was a famous Ikshvaku king; Sudhakshina was his queen and rishi Vasishtha was their Guru.

For a long time Dilipa had no children and so he and his queen felt very sad at heart.

One day the king asked Vasishtha: "Sire! With your blessings, my country and my people prosper, but I am unhappy. My queen is always in tears."

The rishi asked: "What ails you so much, my son?"

Dilipa replied: "Our life is barren without a child. Holy Sage, shall we get one at all?"
