[The following is from a talk given by Giriraj Swami.] Today, in observance of Sri Rama-navami, we shall read a verse from Srimad-Bhagavatam, Canto Two, Chapter Seven: “Scheduled Incarnations.”
The original Personality of Godhead is Krishna, and He manifests Himself in different forms. One such manifestation is Lord Ramacandra. When Krishna appeared in His original form He acted as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whereas when He appeared as Rama He acted as the ideal king.
