Worship Maa (Mother) Saraswati and become an intellectual!
Saraswati Bij mantra is ‘aim’ [ऐं, not एम]. Just by saying this Bij Mantra, an ignorant man became the great Rishi named Satyavrat. But Saraswati’s well known Mantra which is chanted in all schools in India is:
Common men like us can chant the following mantras if one wants more effect.
The following Mantras are also highly effective. But as they contain Bij Mantras, you need to learn them from Gurus only. Not self-appointed Gurus, but actual Gurus who have studied the Vedas comprehensively, through penance!
If you want best result then Saraswati Gayatri Mantra is a masterpiece.
So…do I just chant Saraswati puja mantra to become more intelligent?
No. You have to perform a Saraswati pujan in Diwali and Basant Panchami. That means in the month of Kartik and Magh. Also, a special puja is performed in Navaratri for her, which includes this Saraswati Puja Mantra.
In Diwali, Saraswati is worshipped on Lakshmi pujan along with Lakshmi and Ganesh.
The images of the holy trio are kept in front of all wealth in the house and a note book, with pen. That day only Bij mantra is must and the shloka is chanted.
Businessmen start their accounts from that day. On the auspicious day of Basant Panchami, Saraswati is especially prayed for growth in grains, and knowledge.
The new grains are offered to her with fruits and palash flowers. The Payasam/ Kheer of milk and grain is also offered. With these offerings you should pray to her by chanting the first mantra 108 times.
In Navratri, Saraswati is prayed to by the woman in house with a white sari. She also reads Saptshati Mahatmya, a holy book and chants the Mantra of Saraswati Gayatri. A girl from 2 to 10 years is offered the clothes and sweets as well.
How do I get the best results?
Chanting mantras is not an easy job. Especially ones like Saraswati puja mantra. We have to follow the strict rules. Mantras have power.
Each word is scientifically placed to vibrate the body and mind. Moreover, Saraswati is the deity of speech so each word in this Saraswati Puja Mantra should be pronounced correctly.
Vegetarian have the advantage here because the tongue movements happen correctly while chanting. Non-vegeterians and alcoholics have trouble because their tongues become heavy by consuming meat and/or alcohol (Madya).
Secondly, this holy puja should be performed within a clean, sanitized and holy atmosphere.
You need to have incense sticks and ghee lamps, to get rid of bad smell.
Sit in front of goddess facing North or East.
Concentrate on face of goddess feel the blissful face smiling at you and chant the mantra 108 times with rosary.
After finishing sit quietly for some time closing eyes.
Then rub hand with each other and place on face.
Then open eyes.
You will feel full of energy and happiness.
Do not think of any other subject. Do not let your mind flicker.
And by grace of Maa Saraswati you will get eternal knowledge and be respected all over the world!
