Vasantha Panchami

saraswati devi

Panchami tithi of the Shukla paksha of the lunar month Magha is called Vasantha Panchami.

Saraswati Devi is worshiped on Vasantha Panchami.

This is one of the most auspicious days for vidyarambha.

It is also celebrated as Kamotsava.


Why is Vasantha Panchami celebrated?

Brahma was creating the world.

He found that there was lethargy all around.

All the living beings he created were sitting silently without enthusiasm.

Brahma took water from his spot, sprinkled it, and created a Devi.

She had four hands.

She was holding veenas in two of them.

In the other two hands, she was holding a book and a rosary.

Brahma named her Saraswati.

She started playing veena.

Upon hearing the music, all the living beings became merry and enthusiastic.

This incident occurred on the Shukla paksha panchami of Magha.

This is the day of manifestation of Devi Saraswati.

That’s why she is worshiped on this day.

Saraswati Devi blesses with knowledge, intelligence, and speech.

Meaning of Vasantha Panchami

That’s why it is called Vasantha Panchami.
