Today is Basant Panchmi. We celebrate this day by worshiping goddess Sarasawati who is considered as goddess of knowledge.
Saraswati is called the Mother of the Vedas and the repository of Brahma’s creative intelligence. Saraswati is also called Vak Devi, the goddess of speech.
Sarasawati is an emotion. If Sarasawati/education is given importance in our life then our voice will be sweet and we become knowledgeable. If we give importance to anything then that thing comes to our life. So worship goddess Sarasawati with good feelings and emotions so that we will get good words, good voice and good knowledge.
Prayer means to increase our desire. By giving importance to desire we get fulfillment. Let us welcome spring season from today. In this season you will find yellow flowers start blooming all around. Marigold & golden mustered flowers make the surroundings golden & happy. You can see these flowers blooming on both sides of the highway which goes to Jodhpur or to Delhi.
This season is really appreciable/blossoming season. Make this day full of happiness. Try to love yourself and understand your real self. Everything is in our inner self. People are searching happiness outside but actually it is inside us.
When we pray, we search inside, as a result of this search we find God. Self realization leads to God realization. If we can realize ourselves we can move towards perfection. If we cannot understand our own value then we loose our self image in our own eyes.
Let us appreciate our own self and our own creativity. If you can realize your own potential then you can became great like Chankya, Chandragupta or Ashoka.
To awake, to arise is life. Mostly people are mentally sleeping. Let us awaken and evaluate ourselves. If you have the power to face challenges you can become an emperor.
Close your eyes & bring the feeling of divinity inside, power of forgiveness and start the day with prayer. Let us repeat the Ganesh mantra which will bring knowledge to us.
