Reading time: 4 minutes (Rituals and Importance)
Saraswati Puja or Basant Panchmi is on 5th Feb’ 2022.
It is believed that Goddess MahaSaraswati appeared on this day and second, this day is celebrated as the arrival of the Spring season. How beautiful flowers bloom in Spring. How enchanting breeze is there? We can see butterflies all over, in gardens. After a bitter cold, there is a sense of relief and joy.
North India blooms during spring with Yellow Mustard flower fields. The same Spring, we can witness in our mind with Maha Saraswati grace.
The reason behind the Yellow colour:
Yellow colour clothes are worn on this day. It is like colour of the day. Yellow is a colour of happiness, and it signifies the ripening of fruits, orchards, and crops. So, to celebrate this and to feel in gratitude towards Mother Nature this is celebrated with yellow colour.
This is all about feeling Joy and gratitude in ourselves. In Saraswati prayers, all the offerings are of white and majorly of yellow colour. If you wish you can enjoy wearing any yellow shade, not only for the ritual but as a love towards the Goddess Saraswati.
Goddess Saraswati is a Sunshine of the Universe:
Every educational institute has a Maha Saraswati idol, but she is much more than only education, music, and wisdom. Most of the schools celebrate this day by performing Saraswati vadana and the common man links only academics, art, and singing to Saraswati maa. Which is a very limited introduction for her.
The whole Universal energy of Gyan Prakash is worshipped in the feminine form called Maha Saraswati. She is the Sunshine of this Universe. Blessed are those who receive her grace. Her grace is like blind getting his sight back. I feel it is not us who selects the form of God or a Master. It is God or Master who selects us.
I will explain rituals. If you wish you can follow them all or you can do as much as, you are able to do:
Saraswati puja/ Basant Panchmi rituals:
- This is an early morning prayer. Apply a mixture of Turmeric, Neem, and Tulsi during bath.
- Clean and decorate your temple. Offer Diya and incense to the Holy Mother. Offer Kesar tilak. Offer yellow flowers, betel leaf with cloves and cardamom, vermillion, saffron, honey, and fragrance.
- You can offer Kesar kheer or yellow turmeric sweet rice or any kesar sweets as a prasad to Holy Mother.
- You can recite Saraswati Chalisa and Saraswati mantras after the Ganpati mantra.
- “OM SARASWATI NAMAH”
- “OM AIM MAHASARSWATYE NAMAH” – This is a beej mantra so you can recite it only at your prayer time after bath in the morning. Beej Mantras must be chanted after purification.
- “OM ASATO MAA SADGAMAYA, TAMASO MAA JYOTIRGAMAYA, MRITYOR MA AMRITAMGAMYA, OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI”
There are many more mantras and prayers you can recite any prayer, which ever you like and feel connected.
- Continuous Maha Saraswati prayer is a boon for the people who are facing any anxiety, confusion, or any stress.
- MahaSaraswati’s prayers give a lot of joy, peace, and success. They are magical. She can bless you with everything like Health, Wealth, Peace, success, charismatic speech, clear aura, freedom from bondage, progeny, Solution when no solution seems to be possible. She can convert the most foolish person into Kalidas. She can convert anybody into Sunshine.
Whatever I am writing is what magic I have witnessed with these prayers. I always tell to worship Maha Saraswati with tana, mana, and dhana. Never hold yourself by anyways in gaining knowledge.
Whatever time, money, and energy you give, you are blessed with multiple times more than that. This is the best investment person can do in his life for his happiness and success.
MahaSaraswati grace ensures MahaLakshmi and MahaShakti grace:
As she blesses with light, the same time Mahalakshmi also blesses with overall abundance and prosperity, and this gives grace of MahaShakti in the form of enormous power. Without her blessing money and shakti both are dangerous and can create more problems than good. It is like giving power to the wrong hands.
Listen to yourself:
If in case, there is some challenge in life then also never loose your heart. God loves all his children equally. You give all the access in divine hands. Accept the situation and support yourself in life. Believe in your inner guidance.
Go out in nature for some time or sit with yourself. Listen to yourself. God guides us by putting navigating thoughts in our mind. Your doubt on yourself will block your receiving channel with almighty.
As much as you will Believe on yourself that much God can guide you through you. Your belief on yourself will clear your channel with almighty and you will start getting all the signals to navigate from every situation. Be with those who empowers you.
I will request everyone not to limit yourself to rituals only but feel deep love for the Goddess Maha Saraswati. In love do all whatever you feel like, whatever connects you with this huge cosmic energy. If you cannot do anything then also just surrender in front of her with complete faith that will also do magic in your life. Let her take over you.
Gyan is crystal clear stage of mind :
Gyan is crystal clear stage of mind like clear spring water, where you can see everything very clearly. This is a Stage when you are in extreme clarity, and you feel mental sunshine.
Gyan is not limited only to the degrees we acquire. Degrees are also her grace, but Mother can take us miles ahead then that.
Gyan is light. Her blessings take us in high vibrational place in this world. She makes us meet those souls who are shining and when we meet them, we also start shining. The whole world is transformed in her light.
I bow down in front of the holy mother and pray to her that her grace is always on me and everyone. We all experience the joy of mental Sunshine always.
In advance wishing you a Very Happy Saraswati Puja and Basant Panchmi.
