of the Hindu Goddess Of Arts and Saint Saibaba of Shirdi
Mantra for students :
Few parents wrote to me through starsai.com asking what to do when
their kids are dull in studies and some people write to me about
problems like not getting job or obstacles in career. I belive in
praying Goddess Saraswathi in the form of light ( jyothi ). A simple
ritual is to light lamps infront of any of Goddess Saraswathi for
64 days and when ever you get a chance, try to give some pens ,
books or school fees to poor and needy children. I never support
any big charity organisations as its better you search for any children
who deserves your gift . If you live abroad where you can't find
means to donate to poor, atleast present useful gifts to your relatives
or friends children which will make them happy and please our Goddess
of Arts. The term education also means growth in all forms of arts,music
and skills which you love. I was inspired by shirdi saibaba himself
to launch this site to show a good path for such people. My sai
friend Renuka contributed below mantra....
1) Before each class begins:
Saraswathi Namasthubyam varadhe Kaama roopini
Vidhyarambham karishyaami siddhir Bhavathu may sadha!
Translation: Oh ! Goddess Saraswati, my humble
prostrations unto you, who is the fulfiller of all wishes. I start
my studies with Thy worship and always pray for success.
2) Before we write our exams:
Buddhir Bhalam yaso dhairyam Nirbhayakth wamarohatha
Ajaatyam vakpaduthvamsa Hanumath smaranath bhavethu!
3) Each day before we start studying:
Hope I have spelt the slokas correctly by sai's grace. Please read
these slokas daily. You will definitely be benefitted. Visit Kollur
Mookanmbika temple worshipping the goddess for studies and pray Mookambika
to bless you
Jnana nandha mayam dhevam nirmala spadikakruthim
Adaram sarva vidhyanam Hayagrivam upasmahe!

saibaba - Venkat Raman
For those who like lighting lamps :
Shirdi saibaba never forces anyone to do things they don't like.If
baba wants you to light lamps, he will naturally create a desires
in you to light lamps.I am telling this because now a days no matter
how much i say few sai devotees never understand how valuable is
lighting lamps and how much it can benefit their life. Lighting
lamps infront of shirdi saibaba , Goddess Saraswathi or Guru - Lord
Dakshinamurthy either in temple or at home is beneficial.
A little ritual - Light coconut lamps and pray Moon
I heared someone telling this ritual on tv. One of the reason you
are constantly failing in your work or students are dull in studies
is that their mind always ossilates.Confusion, depression, unnecessary
desires,worries, etc could be the reason why your mind is never
steady and you loose interest in studies and work. This ossilation
of mind can be made study if you do the following ritual to Moon
God. Every monday between morning 6 am to 7 am is the good time
to pray Moon God.
Imagine shirdi saibaba as Moon God , take a coconut ,break it in
to two halves, pour coconut oil in both the halves, Take a thick
wicks and light these 2 halves of coconut as Lamp. Whole heartedly
pray Moon god to bless you with a clear mind. When you light coconut
lamps every monday between 6 Am to 7 Am atleast for 12 weeks, certainly
your mind will get a clarity . Goddess Saraswathi will also bless
you with good concentration, knowledge and improvements in studies
Journey to Koothanur Maha Saraswathi Amman Temple
There are very few historic temples for Goddess Saraswathi in which
Goddess Saraswathi has appeared as women and blessed poets. In 2005
march when i was coming around dhuni ( sacred fire ) in shirdi saibaba
temple , being someone in creative field with lots of failures,
i had a feeling baba wants me to travel to Koothanur and have blessings
of Goddess Saraswathi.The origin of the word Koothanur comes from
a village gifted by King Raja Raja Chola II to the poet Ottakkootthan
I have wrote this article in starsai.com and now presenting it in
this site.... Read about my journey to Koothanur
Maha Saraswathi Amman temple
