Vasant Panchami Celebration

 

 
 

  

 

As per Hindi Lunar Alamanac, Saraswati Puja or Basant Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of Magh Shukla.  It is celebrated to honor the Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of learning who bequeaths the greatest wealth to humanity, the wealth of knowledge. Hindu mythology describes Goddess Saraswati as a pristine lady bedecked with white attire, white flowers and white pearls, sitting on a white lotus, which blooms in a wide stretch of water. The Goddess also holds Veena, a string-instrument, like Sitar, for playing music. This day is also known by the name Vasant or Shree panchami.

The four arms of Goddess Saraswati represent the four aspects of human personality in learning: mind, intellect, alertness, and ego. She rides on a white goose (swan). The swan is known for its peculiar characteristic of separating water from milk, indicating that one should possess clear vision and knowledge to discriminate between good and evil. 

It is believed that Goddess Saraswati was born on this day. Students worship the goddess on this day. The prayer of Goddess finally concludes as, "Oh Mother Saraswati remove the darkness (ignorance) of my mind and bless me with the eternal knowledge." 

On this occasion Dr. D. Y. Patil Educational complex, Akurdi celebrated the Vasant panchami.
