Saraswati Puja is celebrated on Jan. 28, 2012. This festival
glorifies the Goddess Saraswati, patron of knowledge, music
and the arts. It is celebrated on the fifth day of the
Hindu lunar month of Magh. This celebration coincides with the
festival of Basant Panchami, which signifies the
end of the winter season, and the beginning of spring.
Yellow is the predominant color of Basant Panchami as flowers bloom and the harvest ripens. Men and women also wear yellow clothing on this day, making it a very colorful day. A kite festival is held each year to welcome the spring. Young boys and girls participate enthusiastically, making the sky a colorful sight.
Saraswati Vandana (invocation)
Ya Kundendu Tushaara Haara Dhavalaa
Ya Shubhra Vastraavrita

Oh Goddess Saraswati, who is fair as a jasmine flower, the moon or a snow flake, who is dressed in white and whose hands are adorned by veena, who is seated in a white lotus, to whom Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara pray, please protect us.
