Our 2015 Saraswati Puja will be held on 31 January at Stoneham High School, MA
Ma Saraswati is the Goddess of Learning. Every heavenly body that inhabits or orbits our planet seeks knowledge for spiritual upliftment, praying in turn to the endearing goddess entrusted with its fair disbursement. Ma Saraswati holds a special place in the Bengali pantheon. Naturally, Bengalis everywhere, not just the Bengalees of New England, are happy to welcome Ma Saraswati. Bengalees of New England will be celebrating her arrival on 31st of January, 2015.
