Ram Aarti

Ram Aarti is the devotional song sung in praise of Lord Rama. It is usually sung at the end of the puja or religious rituals. The word “Aarti” has been derived from two Sanskrit words: “Aa” and “Rati”. The Sanskrit “Aa” stands for “to or towards”; “Rati” means “virtues or good qualities”. So Ram aarti literally means the song sung praising the virtues of Lord Rama.

Ram aarti is sung as a communal gathering in temples. Some people prefer offering their prayers at home, so they sing the Ram aarti at home too. It is an age old religious tradition that has been followed by devotees of Lord Ram through centuries.
