THE PROCEDURE AND THE TIMINGS OF BASANT PANCHAMI



THE PROCEDURE AND THE TIMINGS OF BASANT PANCHAMI

This year the birthday of goddess Saraswati will be commemorated on 12th of February 2016. The day is considered auspicious for all the beginners. It is one of the most auspicious days for beginning new tasks especially in the field of studies. People wear traditional outfits and perform 'Pitra Tarpan' along with 'Kaamdev pujan'. Men adorn themselves with kurta and payjama while ladies prefer wearing yellow coloured dresses and get engaged in cultural programmes like singing, playing instruments, dancing etc.

Followed by that, prayers are initiated. First of all, one should purify himself and his aasana by reciting the following mantra-

“Om apavitrah pavitravo sarvavastham gatopiva. Yah smeret pundarikakshah sa bramhabhyantarah shuchih”.

One should sprinkle holy water by either using kusha or flowers at least three times and then perform aachman by speaking following mantra-

“Om keshway namah Om madhwaya namah, Om narayanay namah”.

Thereby, wash your hands again and recite aasana purification mantra-

“ Om prithavitwayadhrita loka devi tyawam vishnunadhrita. Twam cha dharyamam devi pavitram kuru chasnam”.

Apply sandal after purification and aachman. Apply chandan via anamika finger and recite the mantra-

“Chanddansyaye mahatpurnyam pavitram paapnashnam aapdaam harte nityam laxmi tishthatu sarvada”.

Performing puja without sankalpa is never successful on 'Basant Panchami'. Hold sesame seeds, flowers, holy rice, sweets and fruits along with other available materials and remember goddess with full faith. Offer all the sacred things to goddess that you are holding

in your hand and then begin the prayers for lord Ganesha.

Pick flowers in your hand and meditate in front of the idol of lord Ganesha. Recite the mantra-

“Gajananambhootgaradisevitam kapittha jamboo phalcharubhakshnam umasutam shoka vinashkaarakam namami vighneshvarpadapamkajam”

Remember lord Ganesha with aakshat in your hands and do aahwahan. Recite the mantra and leave the aakshat in front of lord Ganesha.-

“Om gam garpatyeh  ihagacha eha tishtha”.

Take jal in the aardha and apply rakta chandan to the lord. Recite-

Aetna padyadyachamniya snaniyam punrachamniyam

om gam garpatye namah”

“Idam rakta chandnam lepnam om gam garpatye namah”.

Thereby speak shreekhanda chandan and apply the same. Offer vermillion and recite –

“Idam sindoorabharanam lepnam om gam garpatyah namah”

Offer durva, vilbapatra and new clothes to lord Ganesha. Recite –“Idam taambool pugiphal samayuktam om gam garpatyeh samarpayamih”

Now take a flower and offer it to lord Ganesha and recite-

“Aeshah pushpanjali om gam garpatye namah”.

Now perform prayers for the nine planets and do navgrah puja and take the name of the individual planet at the place of lord Ganesha.

Kalash Pujan-Roll moli on kalasha and adorn it with pallavat on the opening of kalash. Place supari, durva, aakshat and mudra inside the kalasha. Roll moli at the neck of kalasha. Now, cover coconut with clothes and keep it on coconut. Hold aakshat and flowers in your hand and call lord varun for aahvahan by reciting the mantra-

“Om tatvayami bramhara vandamanstadashaste yajmano havibhi Ahedmano varuneh bodhyurunkshas  maan aayuh pramoshih”. (Asmin kalashe varunam saangam saparivaram sayudh sashaktikamawahyaami, Ombhurbhuvah svahbho varun ihagach ihatishtha sthapyami pujyami)

Now as you have offered your prayers to lord Ganesha, perform puja for lords Varun and Indra too.

Saraswati Pujan-Now, have faith in goddess Saraswati and recite-

“Ya kundendu tusharhaar dhawala ya shubhravastravrita

Ya veeravardandmanditkara ya shwetpadmasanaYa bramhachyutshankarprabhritbhirdeveh sada vandita

Sa maam paatu saraswati bhagwati nihsheshjadyapaha”

“Shuklaam bramhavicharsaarparmadyaam jagdvayaapneem

“Om navgrah namah svaha”.

Thereafter, do hawan at least 108 times by reciting the mantra-

“Om saraswatye namah swaha”.

Now, apply bhabhoot of havana on your forehead.

Now take prasaada with full belief and distribute among others too.

Saraswati Visarjan-After performing puja on the fifth day of maagha shukla panchami, the goddess should be bid farewell on the sixth day. This vidhi is termed as sandhya visarjan which is followed by mantra –

“Idjatam  vaakimap teeujap”

The ashtakshar mool mantra is considered as the supreme mantra for Saraswati poojan. It is- “Shreem hreem saraswatye swaha param shreshtam”.

However if you want to stay happy, lively and get blessed with supreme source of knowledge, recite this auspicious mantra-“Om hreem aem hreem saraswatye namah”.
