The Sarasvati Pooja, which is annually celebrated by Hindu devotees for the blessing of Goddess Sarasvati, was held on Tuesday, 8th October, 2019 at the Ministry Auditorium.

The Navarathri Festival is celebrated all over the world by Hindus. It is celebrated for 9 nights (nava means 9).  The Hindus worship the Goddess Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati for getting courage, wealth and knowledge respectively. The last 3 days are devoted to Goddess Sarasvati.    Shri Sarasvati is the Goddess of learning, who is divine knowledge personified. The sound of her celestial Veena awakens the notes of the sublime utterances of the sacred monosyllable, “OM”.  She bestows the knowledge of the supreme, mystic sound, clarity of thought and nobility of ideas   as represented by her pure dazzling white clothes, with the hands holding the Veena and books seated on the white lotus. Hindu devotees worship Goddess Sarasvati to gain knowledge, dispassion, devotion and prosperity.

This holly Sarasvati Pooja was conducted by Dasan Kurukkal of the Munneshwaram Kovil, Chillaw and all staff members of the Ministry including the Secretary to the Ministry, Mr. S.Hettiarachchi, Secretaries of the State Ministry and the Ministry were blessed at this holly Pooja.
