Basant Panchami in Jainism

Happy Vasant Panchami!!

Basant Panchami is generally known as a Hindu festival. Hindu people worship goddess Saraswati on the eve of Basant (Vasant) Panchami (Panchmi).  However, Devi Saraswati is equally important in Jainism. Jain literature refers her as Shrut Devi who is Adhishthayika of all sacred Jain texts (Agam).

Basant Panchmi falls on Magh Shukla Panchami, the fifth day of the bright half of Indian lunar month Magh. The day is counted as auspicious in Indian astrology. Basant Panchmi will fall on January 28 this year 2012.
