Amazing pictures posted by raghavendramutt.org for Shree Rama Navami. Please take a look.
Rama Navami falls on the ninth day(Navami) of the Hindu calendar year during the Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami. It is a celebration of the birthday of the Lord Rama. Ramnavami usually occurs in the months of March and April. This year it is on Saturday March 28th 2015.
As always, here are some very popular slokas to say on that day.
May Shri Lord Rama bless you all.
1. Rama Stotra in the Vishnu Sahasranama, say this sloka 3 times as mentioned in the sahasranama.
Sri Rama Rama Rameti Rame Raame Manorame
Sahasra Nama Tat Tulyam Rama Nama Varanane
Sri Rama Nama Varanane Iti
2. Next one is what we learnt when we were all young.
Ramaya Rama Bhadraya Ramachandraya Vedhase
Raghu Nathaya Nathaya Sitayah Pataye Namaha
3. And of course, Hare Rama Hare Rama
Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
Hare Krishna hare Krishna krishna krishna hare hare

Shri. Sethu Rao has sent a PDF for reciting Shani Peeda Parihara Stotra. Those who are having Sade Sath Shani Katta are usually advised to recite this stotra. The stotra is in Kannada. Thanks so much Sir.
The stotra should be recited after you take shower in the morning.
Attached is the PDF. Shani Peedaa Parihaara Stotra
Mr. P.S.Thammanna has provided the stotra in Kannada, Telugu Tamil and DevanAgari. This is amazing contribution.
Attached below is the link for the PDF. Thanks so much Mr. P.S.Thammanna.
Seven and half years shani dOShaM
P.S: We all know how tough it is when we have Shani Katta. And all of us have gone through those difficult times. Hopefully, this stotra will help relieve some of the bad dosha for one and all.

ದಯ ತೋರೋ ದೇವಾ ಗುರು ರಾಜನೇ
Daya toro deva guru rajane

ವಿಠಲೇಶ ಪ್ರಿಯ ಪ್ರಹ್ಲಾದ ರಾಯ॥
hattaveke jeya ditta yogi kaya
