Saraswati Visarjan- Sending Goddess to her Abode

Saraswati Visarjan, also known as SaraswatiSaraswatiSaraswati
The name Saraswati is a combination of two Sanskrit words...
udvasana is celebrated on the last day of Navratri. The festival is majorly celebrated in Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra. The day is dedicated to Saraswati and devotees make it their responsibility to send her back to her original abode by submerging her idol in running water.

Rituals

People wake up early in the morning, take bath and get dressed in their best, traditional clothes. They prepare numerous meals and sweets for the day. Women adorn themselves with jewelry and apply vermilion on each other’s forehead. The worshipping arena where the idol of Saraswati was placed, is redecorated and people dance with joy as they will be soon bidding her farewell. The noise of drums and other musical instruments fill the atmosphere with ecstasy and a huge procession is take out. Friends and family visit each other and exchange gifts and sweets.

The deity who was first evoked in the idol of the Goddess on the first day of Saraswati Puja It is a prayer ritual performed to make offerings, honoring, evoking or worshipping gods. The ceremony can also be performed to pay homage to the beloved ones who are deadis now requested to depart to her own abode. She is requested to leave her temporary body, the idol, and return to her original dwelling by immersing the idol in running water. Devotees first perform a pooja and then submerge her into a water body.

Significance

Everything is believed to belong to nature and no one can own the Goddess and her Shakti. Devotees can only pray to it for a small duration of time in the form of an idol but ultimately she has to be returned to nature. Thus immersing the idol in the water is a sign of respect, love and gratitude. People thank her for showering her blessings and then send her home, with the faith and expectation that she will visit them again the next year.
