It narrates how King Dasharatha and his three queens - Kaushalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra performed the Putra Kamesti Yagya on the advice of the sage Vashishtha, when none of King Dasharatha's wives could succeed him. After the yagna, kheer was given to the three queens, who were blessed by Yagya, the lord of the yagya.

The queens conceived soon after eating the kheer and on the ninth day of the month of Chaitra, Queen Kaushalya gave birth to Rama. From other queens Bharata, Lakshmana and Shatrughna were born.

Rama was forced to retreat as the rightful heir to Ayodhya due to a promise made by King Dasharatha to his third wife Kaikeyi. However, he ruled the kingdom after coming back from exile for 14 years and became a just and beloved ruler.
