Vasant Panchami

Vasant Panchami, also pronounced as Basant Panchami is a day dedicated to the worship of Ma Saraswati. Celebrated on the Panchami (fifth day) of Magh (January – February) month, the right time to celebrate this festival is when the Panchami Tithi prevails during the Purvahna Kala or the ascending time of the sun. This is also called as Saraswati Puja or Shree Panchami.

Different versions of Vasant Panchami

This is a seasonal festival celebrated during the spring season. In Punjab, this is celebrated as Basant festival with the flying of kites. Sikhs celebrate this in the Gurdwaras and in Bihar this is considered as the birthday of the sun god. In several regions, this is considered a harvest festival.

Vasant Panchami Significance

In Hinduism, Goddess Saraswati is the symbol of wisdom. This day of Vasant Panchami is considered the birthday of Ma Saraswati. Since Saraswati is the deity in charge of learning, students worship her on this day to excel in their studies. On this day, it is also common to see people performing the Akshar-Abhyas (initiating the child with letters) or Vidhya-Arambh (Starting of the child’s learning process) on the day of Vasant Panchami.

Vasant Panchami celebrations

Mythology says Lord Krishna granted a boon to Ma Saraswati that she would be worshipped on the Vasant Panchami day. The theme of this day is yellow colour as it signifies wisdom, vibrant life and brilliance. A special dish called Kesar is prepared for offering to Ma Saraswati during the puja. School going children usually spread their study materials in front of the puja altar to receive the blessings of Ma Saraswati on this day.
