Time to give Vidya it’s due

Basant Panchami is dedicated to Devi Saraswati, the Goddess of Vidya. Learning, according to ancient wisdom, is of two types — Vidya and Avidya.

Let’s explore these two.

Vidya and Avidya

अन्यदेवाहुर्विद्यया अन्यदाहुरविद्यया ।
इति शुश्रुम धीराणां येनस्तद्विचचक्षिरे ॥

anyadevāhurvidyayā anyadāhuravidyayā |
iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṃ
