Basant Panchami Greetings

In Hindu Mythology, Goddess Saraswati is believed to be the personification of knowledge, brilliance, artistic skills, learning, music, and wisdom. Being seated gracefully on a white lotus in Padmasana, reveals that the teacher has command over the subjective experience of truth. The white lotus and her shining white sari signify purity and nobility. Her white swan possesses the quality of discriminating and separating well from the bad things. Her Veena, an Indian musical instrument, teaches music of love for all creatures. Thus, every aspect of Goddess saraswati conveys creative and enlightening things, for becoming a learned, responsible, honest, kind, and generous person. We provide our visitors a variety of basant panchami greetings for diffusing the nobilities and qualities of Goddess Saraswati to their near and dear ones for such purposes.
