Saraswati Mantra Sadhana for giving the Best Performance in School/College:
The Student should start this Mantra Sadhana on the very first day after the summer vacation when schools/colleges reopen. From that day itself, the Student must chant any Saraswati Mantra for one Mala daily using a Sphatik Mala with the help of Gaumukhi.
Gaumukhi is a type of cloth with one side open like a mouth specially made for Mantra Chanting. The student must put one Betel Nut and three coins inside it. He/She must use a white woolen seat for sitting while doing the Mantra Chanting. He should light a Cow Ghee Deep and Agarbattis.
The student must Chant any Saraswati Mantra without distraction of the mind by keeping the chanting hand near his heart. This should be done on a regular basis and daily. If for some reason, the student can’t do the Mantra Sadhana for a day or so then there is no need to worry but he should make sure that this does not occur more than once per week because taking one break per week is allowed for the Saraswati Mantra Experiment.
The student must keep a track of the number of Mantra Chants [One Mala Daily]. A total of 24000 mantra chants needs to be completed which will take 240 days to complete.
After the Mantra Jaap gets completed, if possible on a Shukla Paksha Panchami or Trayodashi which is the 13th day of the Hindu Calendar month or on a Friday, the student must perform Dashansh Hawan of the particular Saraswati Mantra, which he has chanted, which will be 2400 Ahuti of the Mantra. To perform the Hawan the student has to use Rice cooked in Milk, White Til, Honey, Cow Milk and Big Sugar (Sugar which comes like in Diamond type pieces). One can also do Brahman Bhoojan.
If the student wants to do only the Mantra Jaap without the Hawan then the Mantra Jaap should be as follows - 24000+2040+24 = 26,664 total number of Mantra Chants.
Lastly if the student does not want to do Mantra Jaap regularly then the he should follow the steps mentioned below.
On the Shukla and Krishna Paksha Trayodashi Tithi (13th Day of the Hindu Calendar Month) of each month, the student must recite the Saraswati Stotram or the Saraswati Chalisa or the Saraswati Mantra according to his moon sign. This Mantra Sadhana will give the student the best Knowledge and performance in his studies throughout the academic year. I shall provide Saraswati Mantras according to the moon sign shortly.
