SARASWATI PUJA – The beginning of spring!

Saraswati Puja is also known as Vasant Panchami. Every year, it is celebrated on the fifth day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar, in the month of Magha. Magha is a Sanskrit word and it falls in late January or February. Vasant Panchami is the first day that marks the arrival of spring. It also marks the preparation of Holika and Holi (the festival of colour that eventually happens to fall on the 40th day).

Vasant Panchami is a Hindu festival and dedicated to the Goddess Saraswati. The deity is a provider of knowledge, language, music and all form of arts. She is the symbolism of longing, love and creative energy. The festival is celebrated all over the Indian Sub-Continent, Nepali, Bali and Hindus of Indonesia.

The day is also celebrated as a ‘day of yellow’. It is believed that Goddess Saraswati has an endearment toward the colour of yellow. So, people dress in yellow attires, share yellow colored sweets and snacks.

This day is celebrated with great enthusiasm for knowledge and art. The temple of the Goddess is filled with different types of offerings and sweets. With hope and faith in the heart, devotees visit her temples. Just like any other Hindu festivity occasional Saraswati Puja is enjoyed with great connecting moments between family and friends.
