Dasharath performed a yajña with the help of Sage Rishyasringa, an expert of Atharvaveda on the advice of Vasishtha. As the conclusion of the Yagna drew near, Agni sprang out from the Yagnakunda (sacrificial fire pit) and handed Dasharatha a pot of kheer (payasa), advising him to distribute it among his queens. Kaushalya ate half the kheer, Sumitra ate a quarter of the kheer. Kaikeyi ate some and passed the pot back to Sumitra who consumed the kheer for the second time. The queens conceived after the consumption of the kheer. Kaikeyi gave birth to Bharata. Sumitra, who had consumed the kheer twice, gave birth to Lakshmana and Shatrughna.
Kaushalya had consumed the largest portion she gave birth to Rama in the Raghu Kula (Solar Dynasty). Rama was born on the ninth day of Chaitra month in the noon. This day we celebrate birth of Lord Rama as Rama Navami.
