A day of prayer and devotion
A day of inner meditations
A day of merriment and joy
And a welcome break from routine commotion!
Happy Basant Panchami to all!
Oh Devi Saraswati! Endow us with knowledge and wisdom.
We bow to you with utmost emotion.
Oh mother! Take me from
Darkness to light
Ignorance to knowledge
Bondage to freedom.
Oh Ma! Remove my egotism
And let me feel your blessings in all things beautiful around me.
The Sun, the moon, the stars
All things endearing- near and far.
The butterfly, the bees, the birds
Sing thy glory to me in their own sweet way.
It is all a circle of life.
And you Ma- the creator, the preserver the destroyer.
May you bless us all with true wisdom, health and peace.
Aum Shanti! Shanti! Shanti!
