Vasant Panchami marks birthday celebration of Goddess Saraswati


Vasant Panchami, which marks a new beginning of life is also celebrated as a day when Goddess Saraswati was born. The wisdom and creation go hand in hand, and creation or “Prakriti” is associated with female energy ‘Shakti’. It is not co-incidence that Hindu Religion remarks the essentials of world- “Wealth”, “Knowledge”, “Power” represented by the three Goddesses -” Maha Lakshmi”, “Maha Saraswati” and “Durga”. The representation clearly suggests the place of female energy in world and creation. We have a choice- either we believe in our ancient wisdom or we can degrade this knowledge by disregarding women.
