Saraswati Puja 2023: Date, timings, and significance


Goddess Saraswati is worshipped by people for knowledge and to get rid of ignorance, lethargy, and sluggishness on Basant Panchami or Vasant Panchami. The whole day is dedicated to the Goddess and this auspicious Hindu festival is observed with full fervour by her devotees. Saraswati is known as the Goddess of music, knowledge, arts, science, and technology. According to Drik Panchang, many astrologers consider Basant Panchami as Abujha day, which is auspicious for starting all the good work. During this day, the yellow colour holds a great significance. People wear yellow dresses on this day for worshipping the Goddess. The colour yellow symbolises both knowledge and the fields of mustard, which indicates the start of spring.
