Vasant Panchami

Vasant Panchami greetings.

Vasant Panchami, the fifth lunar bright day (Shukla paksha), is celebrated to worship Saraswati, the goddess of learning, art and music. The puja (worship) is performed in public places, at home and in schools and colleges. The students pray for their success in the examinations, the artists and the musicians pray for her blessings to reach greater heights in their professions. Beautiful devotional songs are played on this day.
Goddess Saraswati, with Veena in her hand, symbolyses the divine qualities and brings peaceful and sacred thoughts in every body's mind. Goddess Saraswati ushers harmony, for every artist irrespective of his/her faith offers prayer to her on the sacred day. The snow white Swan, the vehicle of goddess Saraswati,  stands for purity. This festival, in essence, a welcome to Spring.
On this auspicious day 'Boloji' offers its prayers to goddess Sarswati with a solemn request to bless every body with benign and sacred thoughts, and give power to every body's pen, brush or musical instruments to create new concepts to benefit the society and mankind.
