The Balinese Saraswati day is celebrated twice a year according to the Balinese calendar.
Saraswati day is celebrated by the Balinese making offerings and praying, either at home, at school, at the office or at the temples. Offerings are also put on books and scriptures as they are the main sources of knowledge. At the temples or at home, the Balinese also celebrate it by praying and singing holy songs and mantras from Hindu scriptures until late at night.
At Ashram Munivara we celebrate Saraswati together on Banyu Pinaruh and Pagerwesi only. The Saraswati holy day is celebrated at each persons home or village.
“Rahajeng rahina Saraswati!” – Happy Saraswati Day! May wisdom be in every human being.
