SARASWATI DAY (APPRECIATIONS OF KNOWLEDGE), 7 JUNE 2008

SaraswatiThe Balinese Hindus celebrate Saraswati day, the day to worship God in his manifestation as the master of all knowledge, in every six months which is based on Balinese calendar.

Most of the students in Bali will be busy performing the ceremony at schools, colleges, in their houses and temple. At home, they arrange books, magazines, dictionaries and everything related to the physical representation of knowledge, then put them on the altar-like table. Special offerings called canang Saraswati and some other offerings are presented. They would not touch and read their books from morning until evening.
