Saraswati Prarthana

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Hindu goddess Saraswati is the wife of Lord Brahma (the Creator) and is believed to be the goddess of learning. She is portrayed with a white sari (a typical Indian costume worn by the women) carrying a Veena (a stringed musical instrument played by the Carnatic classical musicians). The name of the Veena held by Saraswati is known as Madalasa and she uses hamsa or swan as her vehicle.
Every Hindu family worship Goddess Saraswati when they perform aksharabhyasam i.e. the first education of their child and seek Her blessings for good education for their children.

Basant Panchami also known as Siri Panchami is celebrated as the birth day of Goddess Saraswati.

How To Perform Aksharabhyasam At Home And Basar temple

Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious function of Hindus. 'Akshara' means letters (alphabets) in Sanskrit and 'abhyasam' means practice. It is also known as 'Vidyaarambham' which literally means starting of education. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India.

In the olden days, aksharabhyasam was performed when the child was 5 years old. But presently because of early education at Kindergarten level, parents perform this ceremony when the child is in his 3rd year i.e. after the child completes 2 years. Normally there is a belief that aksharabhyasam should not be performed after the child completes 3 years and is in its 4th year.

The function can be performed either in a temple or at home.
