The vibrant and happy springtime is just ringing around the corner and will be in full bloom in no time. The joyous season of new beginnings and magic is awaited by most of us, and we welcome it with grandeur by celebrating Vasant Panchami or Saraswati Puja. As per ancient Hindu culture, this spirited festivity is dedicated to Maa Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, wisdom, and art. The goddess is known to exude enlightenment and mindfulness, taking away indiscipline and tardiness. The festival is celebrated across India by the different cultures and traditions of the regions. But there's one common mainstay that binds us together: our love for sartorial bliss, hued in the vibrant palettes of springtime. Before we dive deep into our style-jaw of Vasant Panchami dresses for women, let's walk through the rituals and traditions of the festivity.
The Roots of Celebration:
This year, Vasant Panchami, or Saraswati Puja, will be celebrated on the 14th of February. The celebration commences on the fifth day of the Lunisolar month Magha, which typically falls in the English month of January or February. The festival also marks the fervor of Holi festivity, which typically occurs forty days later. As per our scriptures, the goddess of creative energies, Maa Saraswati, curated a powerful weapon that was used to attain victory over the vile demon Magishasuran. Vasant Panchami is hence celebrated to honor that divine creative force harnessed by the Goddess. In many scriptures, it is also mentioned that the day marks the birthday of the goddess.
Prayer Rituals To Swear By
We are enlisting a few simple rituals for a joyous and meaningful celebration. Don't worry, there isn't any hassle involved; all you need to do is get decked up in our vasant panchami dresses and participate in festive fervour.
- The auspicious timing, or Mahurat of the pooja, is from 7:01 a.m. to 12:35 p.m.; there's no such time to offer your prayers to the Goddess. If you want to abide by the timings, you can follow them.
- Start your day with early morning bathing and cleansing rituals. Get dressed up to nine and beyond from our selection of Vasant Panchami dresses hued in shades of yellow, pink, and white.
- Place the idol or an image of Maa Saraswati. Make offerings of mustard, marigold flowers, lilies, yellow cloth, fruits, and sweets.
- Also, make an offering of books, art materials, and musical instruments to the goddess to seek her divine blessings.
- Lastly, conclude your puja with aarti, meditation, and Saraswati Vandana. You can choose to chant it or play it on any musical platform.
