I am very grateful to be reminded of this mantra, which I chanted during my teenage years and throughout high school to help me do well at school. I am now in my senior years and am seeking spiritual knowledge. I am overjoyed to chant the Goddess Sarasvati’s name again, and this time I am asking for her blessings to remove my ignorance and bestow the wisdom to know my true Self.

During the live stream of “Meditation on the Sarasvati Gayatri Mantra,” I experienced, for a fraction of second, the movement of the mantra in my sushumna nadi. I understood that meditating steadfastly for extended periods is the path for me, where I will come to know the Truth.

Last week, during a walk near a lake close by, I looked up at the blue sky filled with white clouds. As I took a picture, I realized that there was the shape of a small, beautiful swan in the clouds. I took this to be a gift from Shri Mahasarasvati, since I used to chant her mantra very often before drawing or painting. Soon I saw more swan shapes in the clouds, and decided to paint this fabulous spectacle.

What a pure gift. It felt like nature was communicating directly with my heart.

I relish the Sanskrit verses of the Sarasvatistotram, the Sarasvati Gayatri mantra, and the many mantras, bhajans, and kirtans of the Siddha Yoga path. Their essence enlivens and sustains me. I have come to realize that Sanskrit is the language of my soul.

When Sanskrit mantras and verses arise spontaneously, I know how blessed I am that they live within me!

Since childhood, I have been fascinated with the beauty and power of words and song. When I came to the Siddha Yoga path, I began to understand that words and music are divine gifts and have the capacity to turn my mind and senses toward my heart. After receiving shaktipat, I became aware of using words more carefully. I began to think about the effect my words have on others and how I can, by speaking mindfully, contribute to the well-being of myself and others.

Through practicing the Siddha Yoga teachings and through the rituals honoring Shri Sarasvati, I am learning even more how to use this power of speech wisely.

I received shaktipat diksha from Gurumayi in May of 1987, three months before I entered law school. I learned about the Goddess Sarasvati at that time and bought a card with her picture and verse 4 of the Sarasvatistotram on it. I began the practice of singing these lines every day.

I feel that the grace of the Goddess supported me during law school, through the bar exam, while looking for work, and throughout the 25 years that I have worked as a civil litigator in California. I have a picture of Sarasvati at my office and I sing the Sarasvatistotram verse to her every morning before I begin work.

I recently gave Sarasvati's photo and the same verse to two of my nieces who are in college. They were delighted to learn of this great Goddess who can support them in their endeavors and reveal their very own divinity.

I am deeply grateful to this Goddess of learning, speech, and creativity. By her divine grace, I perceive my world as a paradise.
