Saraswathi Puja

Saraswati Puja, the worship of Hindu goddess of learning, is observed on the Basant Panchami (January - February) day annually in North and Eastern parts of India (February 1, 2017) and also during the last three days of Sharadiya Navratri (September - October) (September 27 to 30, 2017). Goddess Saraswathi, or Sarasvati, is the Goddess of wisdom and learning in Hinduism.

Basant Panchami Saraswati puja and festival is of great significance in West Bengal and Orissa. Saraswathi puja is also observed by several other communities in North India on the same day. An important event on the day is the initiation of children into the world of letters on this day.

It must be noted that Saraswati Puja is also observed during Navratri (October – November) in several parts of India. On the Navratri Vijaya Dashami day, children are initiated into the world of learning in Kerala. The last three days of Navratri festival is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Saraswati in North and South India.


Teachings of Swami Tapovanam

God is a great string puller, all moving and non-moving things are bound together into a garland by Him with the cord of attachment. The flowers may wither away but the thread remains intact.
Every man ought to throw himself in the mercy of God who is the embodiment of happiness, abandoning desires for the enjoyment of worldly pleasures.
The omnipotent, supreme God, just to please his devotees, assumes some form at times and in certain places.
Internal renunciation is the secret of lasting happiness.
Swami Tapovanam
