New Delhi: On the auspicious occasion of Basant Panchami (also known as Vasant Panchami), goddess Saraswati is invoked. The devotees throng temples early morning and perform rituals for Saraswati Puja.

On this day, Saraswati—the goddess of knowledge, wisdom and performing arts is revered and devotees seek her abundant blessings.

To invoke the goddess, there are various mantras which you can chant. Also, you can pay tribute to Maa Saraswati and seek her blessings by singing this aarti:

Om Jai Saraswati Mata, Jai Jai Saraswati Mata, Sadgun Vaibhav Shalini, Tribhuvan Vikhyata, Jai Jai Saraswati Mata...

Meaning: Glory to you, O Mother Saraswati. You are a treasure of good deeds and the ruler of the three spheres.

Chandravadani padmasini, dyuti mangalakare, Sohe shub hansa savare, atul tejdhari, Jai Saraswati Mata...

Bayen kar men vina, daen kar mala, Shish mukut mani sohe, Gal motiyan mala, Jai Jai Saraswati Mata...

Devi sharan jo ae, unka uddhar kiya, Paithi Manthra dasi, Ravan sanhar kiya, Jai Jai Saraswati Mata...

Meaning: Whosoever takes refuge in you, gets rid of the vicious cycle of birth and death. You destroyed the demon king Ravana by distorting the mind of Kaikeyi’s maid- Manthara.
