Traditions of Vasant Panchami

The color yellow is perhaps the most prominent feature on Vasant Panchami. Yellow colored clothes, foods (like saffron rice), flowers (mustard) and sweets (with kesar) are the traditional norm on this day. Goddess Saraswati is adorned in yellow clothes as yellow is considered to represent the sattva guna – characteristic of purity, prosperity and love.

So how do you celebrate Vasant Panchami? Do you have any special family traditions that you would like to share with us? Join us on Sunday 2/10 at 11AM.
