The reason for the incarnation of Shri Ram
Word of god
When the atrocities on the earth started increasing, the living beings started suffering, the earth started to shake, then along with the creator Brahma ji, along with the gods, went to the shelter of God and did interna. God promised that I would kill the demons by taking birth as the son of Dasharatha, the Suryavanshi of Ayodhya.
Following his promise, he lightened the weight of the earth by killing the demons, the incarnation of Rama. Another reason was Jai-Vijay who was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva and his gatekeeper. He had to take birth as Ravana and Kumbhkaran because of the curse of a Brahmin. To save them, God took human birth in the form of Rama.
Other reasons for the incarnation of Lord Shri Ram
There are other reasons for the incarnation of Lord Shri Ram. A boon given to Manu and Satrupa to be born as their sons. Manu and Satrupa became Dasharatha and Kaushalya in the second birth. To fulfill his boon, the Lord took birth as a human. Fearful of Narada’s tenacity, Devraj Indra sent Kamadeva to break his penance.
Kamadeva failed to disturb Narada’s penance. Devarshi became arrogant after defeating Kamadeva and told it to Shiva and Vishnu as well. The Lord, who wanted the interests of his devotees, decided to remove the ego of Narada. In order to dress the princess of the metropolis, Devarshi asked God for Hari form and God gave her the form of a monkey.
Due to which Narad ji laughed in the meeting. Due to this, Narada got angry and cursed the Shivaganas to be demons and the Lord to be born in human form. Accepting the curse of Narada, Lord Vishnu took the form of Manuj in the form of Dasharatha Nandan.
