Saraswati Puja (Hindu)

February 14, 2024

Saraswati Puja, also called Vasant Panchami, is celebrated to honor Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and learning. Hindu temples and households are full of activity on this day. This ‘Panchami’ is also known as Saraswati Day, because it is believed that on this day, the goddess Saraswati was born, bringing rhythm, order and knowledge into creation.

Hindu children are traditionally taught to read and write their first words on this day, because it is considered an auspicious day to begin a child’s education. Educational institutions organize special prayers for Saraswati on this day.
