Basant Pachami Katha: Mother Saraswati was revealed on this day only
According to mythology, when Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, created the world, everything was visible in the plants and animals, but he was missing something. To fulfill this deficiency, he sprinkled water from his kamandal and then a goddess appeared in the form of a beautiful woman.
He had a Veena in one hand and a book in the other. The third had a garland and the fourth hand was in the groom’s posture. This goddess was Mother Saraswati. When Mother Saraswati played the veena, everything in the world came into a vowel. This is why she got the name Goddess Saraswati. This was the day of Basant Panchami. Since then, Goddess Saraswati started being worshiped in Dev Lok and Mrityulok.
