Significance of Vasant Panchmi
The glorious festivity is observed on the fifth day of the Shukla Paksha in the Magha month of the Hindu lunar calendar. There is a beautiful legend linked with Vasant Panchmi. The festival celebrates the arrival of goddess Saraswati in the universe. Lord Brahma came to have a glimpse after creating the universe. He observed that the entire universe looks very pale and dull without sound. Then, he dropped a few droplets of holy water from his kamandal. The water droplets took the aspect of goddess Saraswati. The mighty goddess gave the universe a new life by adding sound and radiance. Since then, the goddess Saraswati has been cherished as the goddess of knowledge and music.
