Vasant Panchami composed of Vasant raga
Changes in weather begin from Panchami Tithi of Shukla Paksha of Magha month and nature starts moving towards spring season. Vasant Raga songs started from this day in the joy of spring. Singing or listening to this raga in classical music brings excitement, joy and joy. Due to which the mind remains calm and memory also increases. Classical music singer Dr. Richa Verma says that it is called Vasant Panchami only after the beginning of singing of Vasant Raga from the Panchami date of Magha Shukla Paksha. This is one such raga which is started before the coming of season, the other ragas are sung only after the beginning of the seasons.
According to some music texts, Vasant Raga is derived from the fifth face of Panchavaktra Shiva i.e. Panchamukhi Shiva. Which can be sung from Sri Panchami i.e. Vasant Panchami (February-March) to Harishayani Ekadashi (June-July). But the music Damodar Granth says that it should be sung only in the spring.
Vasant Panchami on 16 but spring season from 14 March
Basant Panchami is the sacred festival of Goddess Saraswati. Spring does not begin on this day. Rather this festival is for the worship of Mother Saraswati. According to Kashi’s astrologer Dr. Ganesh Mishra, when the sun enters the Pisces zodiac, then spring comes. He told that in the last thousands of years, spring never started on Vasant Panchami. Goddess Saraswati appeared on this day. Therefore it is called Shri Panchami.
Dr. Mishra says that on the first date of Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month, Brahma created the universe. He was very happy with this. But, in a few days he felt that the creatures of the world are living in a dull manner. There is no gaiety, enthusiasm or consciousness among them. Then he sprinkled a little water from his kamandal on the ground. Saraswati appeared wearing white clothes from that holy water, with a veena in her hand. With them, the first step of knowledge and knowledge took place on earth. It was the day of Vasant Panchami. Therefore, it is called the day of revelation of the Goddess of Knowledge. After this Goddess Saraswati filled consciousness in this world.
The appearance of Goddess Saraswati on the fifth date of Magha month brought joy and joy to the gods and sages. Then everyone praised the Goddess with the Vedas of the Ritas. Since the state of joy and bliss in Sanskrit is called Vasant. Therefore, this day came to be called Vasant Panchami after the appearance of Goddess Saraswati.
