Saraswati Pooja at the Eravur CRC

Teachers, parents and all children at our Eravur CRC participated in the ‘Saraswati Pooja’ on the 22nd of October. This is an annual event in the center but this year it was extra special because the pooja was conducted in our new premises and it was the first spiritual occasion to take place there.

In Hinduism, Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, music, arts and science. She is Brahma’s companion, and it is believed that it was with her knowledge, that Brahma created the universe. Saraswati also has a role in Buddhism. She is known as a guardian deity who upholds the teachings of Gautama Buddha by offering protection and assistance to practitioners. The Pooja is carried out so one can pray to the goddess to bestow on you intelligence, creativity, peace of mind and success.
