On January 28, 2012, Nebraska Nepalese Society celebrated Saraswati Puja at the Hindu Temple in Omaha. It was a day to celebrate the birthday of Saraswati – the goddess of learning. We started the celebration with puja and bhajans. Children participated with great enthusiasm in worshiping their pens and books. They also wrote their name in Nepalese script to please the Goddess and get her blessing. After the puja, all the devotees gathered in the hall and prasad was distributed to all. We would like to thank everyone who came to mark the auspicious occasion. May Mata Saraswati bless us all with knowledge and wisdom.
