Rama is a Hindu folk hero often upheld as the embodiment of dharma (sacred duty) and karma-yoga (the yoga of action). He is also regarded as the seventh avatar (incarnation of God) of Vishnu.

It is possible that Rama was an actual person, born in either Banaras or the Ayodhya region. But on this point scholars are uncertain. His supposed father-in-law, Janaka, was the actual King of the Mithila Kingdom and is referred to in the Upanisads.
