Lord Brahma was very satisfied with the development of the entire universe, according to the Vasant Panchami myth. He decided, as a result, to see the entire world through his own eyes. He set off, therefore, on a journey. He was dissatisfied with the utter silence when he saw the planet. Everything seems very lonely on planet Earth. Lord Brahma reflected a lot on what he had made.
Brahma’s lord had an idea. In his Kamandal, he took some water and sprinkled it in the air. From a tree, an angel emerged. In her lap, the angel had a harp. She was asked by Lord Brahma to play something so that all on Earth was quiet. The angel began playing some music as a result.
With a voice, the angel blessed the people of the World. She filled this world with music as well. Since then, the angel has become known as the Saraswati Goddess, the Goddess of expression and knowledge. Also known as Veena Vadini, she is (harp player). It is believed that voice, intellect, power, and glory were given by Goddess Saraswati.
It is celebrated as a mark of spring’s arrival in different parts of India. During springtime, nature also seems quite lovely, the queen of seasons. Lord Shri Krishna has, therefore, described himself in the Shrimad Bhagwat Gita as the spring season. He also noted that a sign of prosperity is springtime. On the 5th day of the Magha month, the spring season starts In Hindu iconography, Saraswati is usually portrayed as sitting on a white lotus, wearing a white sari. It means that she has pure understanding and is grounded in absolute reality. She’s got four sides, representing the mind, the brain, the intellect, the ego.
Also, they reflect the holy books of the Hindus, the 4 Vedas. She keeps a book, a pot of water, a crystal mala, and a veena in her hands, reflecting her mastery of the arts and sciences. The book she keeps is a Vedas book that reflects, as well as all learning, the divine, eternal, universal, and true knowledge. The force of meditation, spirituality, and inner reflection is reflected by the crystal mala. The water pot symbolizes the power of purification to differentiate between right and wrong, clean and unclean, and essence from the basic. The pot also represents soma, the drink that liberates one and leads one to knowledge, in some texts. The veena is all creative arts and sciences.
When she keeps it, the expression of wisdom that generates unity is symbolized. A passion for music is also associated with Saraswati. One of the most important goddesses in the Hindu pantheon is Saraswati. When rituals relating to education or arts are performed, her blessing is mandatory.
Often a swan or hamsa is seen near her feet. The swan is a holy bird in Hindu mythology that symbolizes moral beauty, transcendence, and moksha. It drinks the milk by itself when a mixture of milk and water is provided. It also demonstrates the ability to differentiate between good and bad, the nature of the external appearance, and the everlasting from the evanescent. Hamsavāhini is also called Saraswati, meaning “she who has a hamsa as her vehicle.”
In ancient times, Maa Saraswathi was praised as one of the most prominent Indian Mahakavi Kalidas.

In various ways, Mahakavi Kalidas praised goddesses such as “Mathangi, Madalasa, Neelatara, Vaagdevi, Shyamala,”
She is one of the Mahavidyas, the ten goddesses of Tantric.She is believed to be the tantric manifestation of Sarasvati, the goddess of learning and music. As she is a sort of Sarasvati, Matangi regulates voice, music, information, and the arts. Her worship is prescribed to acquire supernatural powers, especially to gain influence over enemies, to draw people to themselves, to acquire mastery of the arts, and to acquire supreme knowledge.
In color, Matangi is depicted as emerald green. While Uchchhishta-Matangini carries a noose, sword, goad, and club, Raja-Matangi plays the veena, her other well-known form, and is often pictured with a parrot.
Neela Tara OR Neela Saraswati
In her fierce form, Neela Saraswati is a kind of Tara Devi. The goddess that triggers bhava tarana is Tara or Taresi, so she is often referred to as Bhava Tarini, or crossing the ocean of creation. Tara is the same as Kali, the embodiment of ultimate devotion, according to the Yogini Tantra. She is Kamakhya as well. Three manifestations of Tara are listed in Tantric types of literature: Eka Jata, offering Kaivalya or unity with the Absolute; Ugra Tara, one who provides relief from unforeseen serious miseries; and Nila Saraswati, imparting
Jnana or knowledge.
As she stands on the corpse lying on the burning funeral pyre, Tara is three-eyed and reaches her knees, which seems horrible. These are symbolic of Mother Kali, ever ready to erase the darkness of Her devotees’ ignorance and passivity.
Vagdevi is the “Hindu goddess of learning, music, and poetry”.
In Sri Vidya Krama, Shyamala is one of the chief Tantric goddesses. She is also one of the Shakta tradition’s maha-vidyas, as she is Matangi’s maha vidya herself. She has many titles, including Raja Shyamala, Raja Matangi, Matangi, Mantrini, etc. All these things are similar to Sarasvati, the goddess.
The Power to Know is Gyana Shakti, Iccha Shakti (willpower) and Kriya Shakti are the other two pieces (the power to act). It is the combination that controls the universe of these Shaktis. All three Shaktis must be in equilibrium in order for a goal to be achieved.
Gyana Shakti is one of the three components of the creative cosmic force called shakti in Indian and Yogic philosophy.Gyana Shakti may be referred to as the power of the mind and has two main parts. Attributes of the mind include thinking, reasoning, analyzing, recalling memories, and understanding. Gyana Shakti powers the mind to complete these tasks.
For example, to build a house, one must have the desire to do so (iccha), the knowledge to build it (gyana), and the physical ability (kriya).
Iccha-shakti is the willpower of an individual’s consciousness and the driving force for life. From Sanskrit, iccha means “will” or “want,” and shakti means “power” or “strength.” In yogic philosophy, shakti is the cosmic energy that has the power to create and change things within the universe; iccha-shakti is the power of one’s intentions and actions.
Shakti is also the name of the Hindu goddess responsible for the creation and all dynamic forces in the universe. She is also called “The Great Divine Mother” or “The Universal Mother.”
Derived from Sanskrit, kriya means “action” and shakti means “intelligent energy.”
Kriya Shakti is one of three parts of the creative cosmic power called shakti. It is the combination of these three Shaktis that operates the universe. In order for something to be completed, all three Shaktis must be in harmony. For example, to build a vegetable garden, you must have the desire to do so (iccha), the knowledge to create it (jnana), and the physical ability (kriya).
Gyana Shakti is also called jnana shakti. Jnana is the Sanskrit word for “wisdom” or “spiritual knowledge.”
Rituals On Vasant Panchami
“The name of Vasantha Panchami is “Saraswathi Jayanthi”. “It is often referred to as “Sri Panchami”. In order to be enlightened with wisdom and to get rid of lethargy, sluggishness, and ignorance, people worship Goddess Saraswati. This ritual of initiating child education is referred to as Akshar-Abhyasam or Vidya-Arambham/Praasana, which is one of Vasantha Panchami’s famous rituals.
Mother Saraswati comes from Sattva Guna and is very fond of the white stuff. Therefore, by donating or offering white things like milk, curd, butter, white clothing, sugar, white sesame seeds, and rice grains, mother Saraswati’s blessings can be obtained. Mother Saraswati is decorated with yellow flowers in addition to this, and when worshipping her, yellow-colored dresses are also worn.
Therefore, for students to worship Mata Saraswati – the goddess of intelligence, wisdom, arts, and music – it is considered the best day. For auspicious events and weddings, Vasant Panchami is an excellent day. Shri Panchmani and Saraswati Panchami are also celebrated at this festival.
