Jai Sai Ram.
Well & Wish to hear the same from you. It is been a long time writing to you all. First & Foremost a Very Happy Fun Filled, God Blessed, Healthy, Prosperous & Successful New Year 2017.
With the Grace & Divine Blessings of Mother, God & Sadguru It all started in 2008 when I started Performing the Puja for Couple of Distressed Children who were going to write their Annual/Final Exams & I wanted to give them Mother's & Guru's Blessing to perform well & Score the Best.
I've been Performing Special Sri Sai Baba & Saraswati Samuhika/Group Puja for All the Students who are going to face Different Exams in the coming months of February, March, April & May 2017.
I’ve Successfully Completed 9 years of Special Sri Sai Baba & Saraswati Samuhika/Group Prayers.
This is the 10th Year that I’m performing this Puja to Benefit Sai's Children attending their exams.
I’m Commencing the Prayers from Wednesday, 1st Feb 2017 – Vasantha Panchami which is famous for Saraswati Avahana & Saraswathi Puja. Basantha Panchami or Vasantha Panchami is the Panchami Thithi during Shukla Paksham of Magha Masam.
Instead of commencing Special Puja Starting on the Thursday After Vasantha Panchami, I’m commencing Puja from Vasantha Panchami Thithi which is on Wednesday, 1st Feb 2017.
Vasantha Panchami Details:
Vasant Panchami is a festival dedicated to Goddess Saraswati. There is no specified time for performing Saraswati puja on this day, however it is stated that all the rituals should be perform when the ‘Panchami’ (5th day) thithi is prevailing.
On the day of Vasant Panchami, people dress up in yellow clothes. Yellow is a color that signifies vibrancy of life and vividness of nature. Young girls particularly adorn bright yellow dresses and participate in the festivities. Yellow is also known to be the color of love, prosperity and purity.
The devotees get up early and begin preparations for worshipping Goddess Saraswati. The idols of Saraswati are beautifully adorned and devotees offer prayers with full devotion.
On this day Yellow or White Colored Flowers are offered to Goddess Saraswati and special bhog of ‘Kesar Halwa’ made from flour, nuts, sugar and cardamom powder is prepared. This preparation also includes saffron strands giving it mild fragrance and vibrant yellow color.
Havan and other puja rituals are performed on this day. After the puja, the Prasad is distributed among all the students and devotees.
The day of Vasant Panchami holds special significance for students. As Saraswati is the Goddess of wisdom and knowledge, students worship Her with immense fervour and zeal.
They keep their notebooks, pens and pencils near Goddess Saraswati’s feet and ask for enlightenment.
The day of Vasant Panchami is also considered auspicious for initiating studies in young children. This tradition is called ‘’Vidya Arambham’ or ‘Akshar Abhyasam’ and is very predominant in different parts of the country. Schools and colleges organize special events on this day.
