॥श्रीसरस्वती स्तोत्रम्॥

या कुन्देन्दु-तुषारहार-धवला या शुभ्र-वस्त्रावृता
या वीणावरदण्डमन्डितकरा या श्वेतपद्मासना।
या ब्रह्माच्युत-शंकर-प्रभृतिभिर्देवैः सदा पूजिता
सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेषजाड्यापहा ॥१॥

दोर्भिर्युक्ता चतुर्भिः स्फटिकमणिमयीमक्षमालां दधाना
हस्तेनैकेन पद्मं सितमपि च शुकं पुस्तकं चापरेण।
भासा कुन्देन्दु-शंखस्फटिकमणिनिभा भासमानाऽसमाना
सा मे वाग्देवतेयं निवसतु वदने सर्वदा सुप्रसन्ना ॥२॥

आशासु राशी भवदंगवल्लि भासैव दासीकृत-दुग्धसिन्धुम्।
मन्दस्मितैर्निन्दित-शारदेन्दुं वन्देऽरविन्दासन-सुन्दरि त्वाम् ॥३॥

शारदा शारदाम्बोजवदना वदनाम्बुजे।
सर्वदा सर्वदास्माकं सन्निधिं सन्निधिं क्रियात् ॥४॥

सरस्वतीं च तां नौमि वागधिष्ठातृ-देवताम्।
देवत्वं प्रतिपद्यन्ते यदनुग्रहतो जनाः ॥५॥

पातु नो निकषग्रावा मतिहेम्नः सरस्वती।
प्राज्ञेतरपरिच्छेदं वचसैव करोति या ॥६॥

शुद्धां ब्रह्मविचारसारपरमा-माद्यां जगद्व्यापिनीं
वीणापुस्तकधारिणीमभयदां जाड्यान्धकारापहाम्।
हस्ते स्पाटिकमालिकां विदधतीं पद्मासने संस्थितां
वन्दे तां परमेश्वरीं भगवतीं बुद्धिप्रदां शारदाम् ॥७॥

वीणाधरे विपुलमंगलदानशीले
भक्तार्तिनाशिनि विरिंचिहरीशवन्द्ये।
कीर्तिप्रदेऽखिलमनोरथदे महार्हे
विद्याप्रदायिनि सरस्वति नौमि नित्यम् ॥८॥

श्वेताब्जपूर्ण-विमलासन-संस्थिते हे
श्वेताम्बरावृतमनोहरमंजुगात्रे।
उद्यन्मनोज्ञ-सितपंकजमंजुलास्ये
विद्याप्रदायिनि सरस्वति नौमि नित्यम् ॥९॥

मातस्त्वदीय-पदपंकज-भक्तियुक्ता
ये त्वां भजन्ति निखिलानपरान्विहाय।
ते निर्जरत्वमिह यान्ति कलेवरेण
भूवह्नि-वायु-गगनाम्बु-विनिर्मितेन ॥१०॥

मोहान्धकार-भरिते हृदये मदीये
मातः सदैव कुरु वासमुदारभावे।
स्वीयाखिलावयव-निर्मलसुप्रभाभिः
शीघ्रं विनाशय मनोगतमन्धकारम् ॥११॥

ब्रह्मा जगत् सृजति पालयतीन्दिरेशः
शम्भुर्विनाशयति देवि तव प्रभावैः।
न स्यात्कृपा यदि तव प्रकटप्रभावे
न स्युः कथंचिदपि ते निजकार्यदक्षाः ॥१२॥

लक्ष्मिर्मेधा धरा पुष्टिर्गौरी तृष्टिः प्रभा धृतिः।
एताभिः पाहि तनुभिरष्टभिर्मां सरस्वती ॥१३॥

सरसवत्यै नमो नित्यं भद्रकाल्यै नमो नमः।
वेद-वेदान्त-वेदांग-विद्यास्थानेभ्य एव च ॥१४॥

सरस्वति महाभागे विद्ये कमललोचने।
विद्यारूपे विशालाक्षि विद्यां देहि नमोस्तु ते ॥१५॥

यदक्षर-पदभ्रष्टं मात्राहीनं च यद्भवेत्।
तत्सर्वं क्षम्यतां देवि प्रसीद परमेश्वरि ॥१६॥
॥इति श्रीसरस्वती स्तोत्रम् संपूर्णं॥

"GA" is the first part, "Na" is the middle & end "UM" formed by the bindu is conjoined with the foregoing & all of them form the Sacred word. This Mantra if pronounced properly, has the power of revaling The Divine Lord Ganesh, The sage who receives the Mantra is Ganaka & the Metre is "NICHRAT GAYATRI" The Diety is Ganapati.
