    या कुन्देन्दुतुषारहारधवला या शुभ्रवस्त्रावृता।
    या वीणावरदण्डमण्डितकरा या श्वेतपद्मासना॥
    या ब्रह्माच्युत शंकरप्रभृतिभिर्देवैः सदा वन्दिता।
    सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेषजाड्यापहा॥१॥

    शुक्लां ब्रह्मविचार सार परमामाद्यां जगद्व्यापिनीं।
    वीणा-पुस्तक-धारिणीमभयदां जाड्यान्धकारापहाम्॥
    हस्ते स्फटिकमालिकां विदधतीं पद्मासने संस्थिताम्।
    वन्दे तां परमेश्वरीं भगवतीं बुद्धिप्रदां शारदाम्॥२॥
