Hymns of Floral Offerings.



Uttering the celestial sound, O' the auspicious embodiment daily,  I bow before thee. 
Thee, who is known by the name Of Saraswati, I bow before thee. 
Thee, who embodies the knowledge of all holy scriptures (Vedas, Vedantas, and Vedangas); 
Now with aromatic sandal paste on Bengal quince leaves, I offer my floral offerings before thee. 
Uttering appropriate celestial sounds; the holy Saraswati, I bow before thee.



Hymns of Paying Homage.



The goddess who is omnipresent, hail thee. 
Between whose bosoms duo enshrines pearl lei, 
Whose hands duo idolizes music and knowledge, 
The daughter of greatest goddess of India, I bow before thee.



O' goddess Saraswati; 
whose forehead shines with wisdom; 
whose lotus-like eyes sparkle with knowledge; 
who embodies knowledge of all worlds in her large eyes; 
I beg before thee for all knowledge and skills, I bow before thee.

P.S:-

1> I have replaced "Om" and "Om Oing" with words like celestial sounds for the benefit of my non-Indian, non Hindu readers.
2> In "Hymns of paying homage" I chose not to incorporate these prefixes because they are to be uttered aloud and in case of ladies who pray this, these prefixes are to be replaced by "Namo." as ladies are forbidden to pronounce "Om" as per Vedic rituals which is strictly a male phonation.


And if this doesn't work then :)
