Saraswati Vandna

Saraswati is the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom. She helps us remove the rust that settles over the knowledge that should be guiding us.

या कुन्देन्दुतुषारहारधवला या शुभ्रवस्त्रावृता

या वीणावरदण्डमण्डितकरा या श्वेतपद्मासना।

या ब्रह्माच्युतशंकरप्रभृतिभिर्देवैः सदा वन्दिता

सामां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेषजाड्यापहा ॥

 

Ya Kundendu Tushaar Haar Dhavalaa

Ya Shubhra Vastraa Vrutaa

Ya Veenaa Varadand Mandit Karaa

Ya Shweta Padmaasanaa |

Ya Brahmaachyut Shankar Prabrutibhir

Devai Sadaa Vanditaa

Saamaam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavati Nihshesh Jaadyaa Pahaa ||

 

The one who is pure white like Jasmine, wearing white clothes, has a veena in her hand, has white seat to sit on, one is respected and admired by trinity of Gods - this is Goddess Saraswati. May Goddess Saraswati help us remove all the gunk that surrounds our knowledge and wisdom.
