या कुंदेंदु तुषारहार धवला, या शुभ्र वस्त्रावृता |

या वीणावर दण्डमंडितकरा, या श्वेतपद्मासना ||


या ब्रह्माच्युतशंकरप्रभ्रृतिभिर्देवै: सदा वन्दिता |

सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेष जाड्यापहा ||


शुक्लां ब्रह्मविचार सार परमां आद्यां जगद्व्यापिनीं |

वीणा पुस्तक धारिणीं अभयदां जाड्यान्धकारापाहां ||


हस्ते स्फाटिक मालीकां विदधतीं पद्मासने संस्थितां |

वन्दे तां परमेश्वरीं भगवतीं बुद्धि प्रदां शारदां ||


सरस्वत्यै नमो नित्यं भद्रकाल्यै नमो नमः ।

वेद वेदान्त वेदांग विद्यास्थानेभ्यः एव च ||


सरस्वती महाभागे विद्ये कमाल लोचने ।

विद्यारूपी विशालाक्षी विद्याम देहि ||
