Preface

My book in Samskrit “Tattvam-Sattvam”,a collection of various Studies of different Gods and Goddesses was under print.Shri Ram Avatar Gupta, Chairman,Pustak Mahal, had read and heard some Sarswati Vandanas collected in that book. He knew my devotion and inclination towards “Ma Sarswati Goddess of Knowledge &Wisdom”. My ecstasy got instantaneous expression. I felt indebted to that experienced publisher who had given yet another challenging and cherished assignment like the earlier ones.

It was not easy to write a book on the most favorite deity whom I have worshipped since the time when I knew nothing about her. Of course, I have composed many poems on her in Hindi and English, and Vandanas and Stuties in Samskrit, but poems are different. They contain her form and poet’s wishes. In the book I planned to write everything about her that I knew or heard about. I completed the book in six months as I already had all the materials and related books which were needed. I had collected them while writing the book “Ma Shakti”.

In Ma Saraswati Goddess of Knowledge &Wisdom”, everything known about Saraswati has been incorporated. In the beginning, some prayers have been given followed by poetic description of Ma Saraswati in Spiritual Quadruplets. Then there is an exhaustive introduction full of elucidations which is illuminating. The second Section opens the vistas in which actual,spiritual,religious,scriptural,devotional,scientific,psychological and philosophical basis and meaning of Sarswati is presented in a graphic manner with short quotations from Scriptures and other Granthas for clear understanding and to prove the point ‘Dash Shloki Mantra’ byYashwalayan is the highlight of the second section which contains a separate chapter on Gayatri.

The third section deals with the ways and means of worshipping Ma Saraswati.Complete Poojan Vidhi along with some Stotras,Arties, Chalisas is given the common reader is not aware of the way Ma Saraswati is worshipped. That brings on to the Fourth section that contains different forms and one thousand plus one hundred and eight names of Ma Saraswati with the Mantras for chanting. And the fifth section is the conclusion that gives insight into the powers and prayers of Ma Saraswati- the essence of Cosmic Power and Ideas, and of Letters, Word and Sound.

Only ‘a’ has been taken from the Scriptural Transliteration for longer ‘a’ sound which is otherwise very difficult to write in English. It makes the reading of Indian names and Samskrit quotations easier. Rest of everything is as written in government papers, newspapers, magazines and general books.

Now the book is in the hands of readers. They are the best judge to decide whether everything related to ‘Ma Sarswati Goddess of Knowledge &Wisdom’ has been incorporated in the book or not. In my humble opinion, the book includes everything. It is the time to read the book with devotion and worship Ma Saraswati: Aum Hring Saraswati Namah!
