Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee
Nihshesha Jaadyaa Pahaa
May Goddess Saraswati completely remove our ignorance and protect us. She who is fair like the 'Kunda' flower, the moon, the snow and a necklace of white pearls, who is wearing pure white garments, whose hand is adorning the neck of an excellent Veena and who is seated on a white lotus, to whom Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara and other forms of God pay homage. (May she protect me) Oh Goddess of knowledge, remove the ignorance from my mind completely.
