Review on Vasant Panchami 2016

O Saraswati the Goddess of Knowledge. Saluations to You. O the One who fulfills all Desires and grants Boons, I am going start my education today. May I always Succeed wherever I go!

The Brahma Vaivarta Puran mentions that Krishna granted a boon to Goddess Saraswati that she will be worshipped on Vasant Panchami too as she was born on this day. Since then, Saraswati Pooja has become a major part of the Vasant Panchami celebrations.

It is said that it was the day of Vasant Panchami when Goddess Saraswati tied the tongue of Kumbhkarana and made him ask for Nidraasan (the Throne of Sleep) instead of Indraasan (the throne of Kind of Devatas). Thus, she contributed to Lord Ramas victory over Ravana.

Vasant Panchami is also related to Kamadeva (the God of Desire, Love and Romance). As the story goes:

The demon Tarak had broken all hell loose. He had become invincible as he had been granted the boon that he could only be killed by Shivas son.On the other hand, Shiva was in deep meditation. He refused to even look at Parvati and give Her a chance to have His heart as he had still not recuperated from the shock of his first wife Sati.
